Your tailor-made holiday to Maldives & UAE

Capri Pool at Shangri-La's Villingili Milaidhoo Maldives House reefs in Maldives

A Dubai and Maldives twin-centre holiday that balances the right amount of discovery and activity in Dubai with relaxation in the Maldives.

In Dubai, your stay is at the luxurious Palazzo Versace, situated right beside the Creek and close to the the old part of the city and its fascinating heritage, including the atmospheric gold and spice souks. However, only a short distance away are all the other iconic sights and experiences of Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, dancing fountains, the malls, marinas, water parks, as well as theme parks including Dubai Parks & Resorts and Legoland. Plus, as an extra 'treat' while staying at Palazzo Versace, and exclusive to Mahlatini guests, you can enjoy a masterclass cookery lesson with a Michelin star chef!

Once in the Maldives, the emphasis is very much about slowing down and moving at a much more relaxed pace. You'll enjoy a superbly appointed villa as well as an array of activities, many water sports, but also some land events too. Together with exquisite cuisine and a wide choice of dining options, you are assured of a memorable Maldives holiday.
