The Maldives archipelago, located off the south west coast of India, is a hundred little pieces of paradise! If your clients are looking for beautiful island resorts, incredible marine life, pristine beaches, and friendly locals, then a Maldives vacation is the perfect spot. If you’re not convinced, here’s five reasons you should send your clients to the Maldives.
1. Getting there is half the fun!
Once travellers have arrived in the international airport in the capital Male, they’ll need to take either a small seaplane or speedboat to get to their resort. The convenient speedboat is available for resorts usually less than 15km away and shows off the beauty of the islands up close. If travellers are in a seaplane, this is their opportunity to get incredible aerial views of the islands and the pristine Indian ocean.
2. Ideal Weather
The Maldives is known for having perfect holiday weather, whether your clients are seeking to relax on a beach on their honeymoon or planning to go diving deep into the ocean, and it’s a great place to escape to during the North American winter. The islands experience tropical temperatures with an average of 28°C or 82°F. The dry season is generally between October to April, and the rainy season between end of April and October, but you can visit year-round. Note the best time to get a hotel deal is between May and September.
3. Oh-So-Fine Luxury
The Maldives boast some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts in the world and many islands are made up of just one private resort. While there are a few moderate accommodation options, most of the resorts here are five-star and upscale. Expect to see overwater bungalows, high-end dining, large suites, and luxurious spas in many resorts. The Maldives is perfect for your VIP and high-end clientele.
4. Bring the Kids!
The Maldives is known as a perfect place for romance, whether clients are celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary or having a destination wedding. But the country is also becoming a popular spot for families. Many resorts cater specifically to family holidays, offering all-inclusive options, kid’s clubs, child-friendly menus, baby-sitting services, and family-style rooms. We suggest for families with young children, sell a resort not too far from the mainland to keep transfer times to a minimum.
5. Some of the Best Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
There is an amazing array of life under water in the Maldives archipelago: corals and over 2,000 species of fish, ranging from colourful reef fish to whale sharks, sea turtles, eels, manta rays, stingray, and eagle rays. It’s no surprise the Maldives has become one of the world’s premier scuba diving and snorkeling destinations.
