6 Reasons a Maldives Trip is Worth Breaking the Bank- Get a taste of paradise!

The Maldives, although a favourite choice of many, also happens to be among the most expensive holiday destinations in the world. However, the sheer luxury and beauty of the place are still worth a trip, at least for a special occasion!


The beaches

The beaches will be some of the best you have ever seen in your life! They are pure heaven, with an aura of calm and tranquillity, which is otherworldly. The coastlines of the Indian Ocean are pristine and resplendent. During the mornings, the soft light and gentle waves are perfect for swimming, lounging on the beach or snorkelling. Towards the sunset, the sky gets inundated with a range of colours like orange, pink, red, and purple.


Coral reefs

The seas surrounding the Maldives are thriving with vibrant aquatic life like the manta rays, tropical fish, barracudas, and endangered sea turtles. The coral life in the Maldives is one of the best in the world. Swim among the colourful coral reefs in temperate waters. In some locations, you have to wear a wet suit, but here, the warm waters of the Indian Ocean are made for this. The fishes on the coral reefs are friendly and used to people as well!


Water sports

The sheer number of water activities makes it a worthwhile destination for lovers of all water sports. Try your hand at kayaking, jet-skiing, canoeing, sea bobbing, surfing, snorkelling, rollerblading also known as X-Jet Blades, windsurfing etc. Almost all of the top resorts will have in-house instructors for all these activities. Try to take part in these sports even if you have never done a water sport in your life – consider this the perfect opportunity to learn one.


Bioluminescent Beaches

This phenomenon happens only in a few selected locations in the world. If you ever visit the Maldives, make sure to go to Vaadhoo Island in Raa Atoll. There, you will be able to glimpse a sea of stars in the ocean! The plankton present in the water emit luminous substances with the movement of the waves. It is a defence mechanism on their part to keep fish and other harmful creatures away. It is indeed a sight to behold and a rare one at that!



The 5 Star Resorts in Maldives are super luxurious and perhaps among the most expensive in the world. They have all sorts of fancy additions, from underwater restaurants to gyms! The range includes exquisite overwater villas, sea view bungalows, suites, garden rooms etc. the likes of Adaaran Prestige Water Villas are among the type of luxury found only in the Maldives!


Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve

The Maldives is home to one of the finest coral covers in the world and is a top snorkelling destination. Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve is the seventh-largest coral reef in the world. The Reserve has over 250 types of corals and over 1,200 kinds of fish.
