Discover the Maldives
Luxury, calm and exquisite beauty is what you can expect from an all-inclusive stay in the Maldives
On honeymoon or in search of a journey that’s truly timeless? Head for the Maldives. This small country made up of 1200 islets, just 200 of them inhabited, is a natural treasure. On one of the uninhabited islets, enjoy an all-inclusive package in the Maldives with just coconut palms, fine sand and whispering waves for company. From your Club Med Kani resort, visit the islets by seaplane, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the colourful lagoons and coral reefs.
Leave the air and head for the ocean. Your stay in the Maldives continues with a trip to Ari Atoll aboard a glass-bottom boat: ideal for observing the aquatic ballet of fish dancing around the coral reefs. Then dive into the waters off North Malé Atoll at Manta Point for some unexpected encounters during your all-inclusive package in the Maldives: just opposite the atoll of your Club Med Finolhu Villas resort, you can swim with the manta rays and whale sharks. Completely harmless, they’ll be happy to come up close and say hello.
Much more than just an idyllic setting, the Maldives have an identity forged by a range of different influences. In Malé, which in Sanskrit means "big house", the Maldives National Museum bears witness to the Indian, Muslim, Buddhist and Portuguese civilisations that live side by side in the country. Malé is also an island of traditions, as you’ll see for yourself at its picturesque market: around stalls of exotic multicoloured fish, folklore and trading rituals provide a real spectacle for you to enjoy every day. A spectacle that’s tinged with the kindness of the locals who’ll welcome you into this "big house" and provide some great tips on where to savour grilled bonito or help you seek out a secret islet. Everything you need to make your stay in the Maldives even more memorable.
