A magnificent collection of over 1000 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, the Maldives is set deep in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Pristine white sands, swaying palms and warm tropical water combined with year-round sunshine, friendly locals and plenty of activity make the Maldives one of the most sought-after beach holidays.

Ever fancied owning a Private Island? We can't promise you the island completely to yourself but we can promise it will feel like it. Every resort in the Maldives is on its own exclusive island, making holidays to the Maldives the ultimate in secluded decadence.

There is an impressively diverse choice of accommodation in the Maldives from rustic hideaway retreats offering simple beachfront bungalows to larger, more contemporary resort hotels offering unique overwater villas.

At the top end, luxurious resorts offer ever-greater heights of luxury, from personal butlers and private lap pools and Jacuzzis to in-room massages. Unsurprisingly Maldives appeals to honeymooners and those seeking a glamorous tropical getaway. A honeymoon in the Maldives combines the perfect balance of luxury and relaxation.

Whilst not the obvious choice for families, we have carefully selected a number of family-friendly resorts which offer kids' clubs, activities and family accommodation. It's family time as you always picture it, grilling marshmallows on the beach and taking on thrilling water sports.

And surely boarding a speedboat or seaplane to transfer to your hotel is far more exciting than the everyday taxi ride!

With many of the islands surrounded by coral reefs it is of course the fantastic marine life which is the focus of most activities. Booming with colour and thousands of tropical fish, dive beneath the turquoise waves to immerse in an underwater world. Scuba, kayak and snorkel to encounter rare marine life, including turtles, dolphins and whale shark.

But you don't have to get wet to enjoy this exquisite underwater world the Maldives is home to an underwater spa, underwater music club and underwater restaurant.

Of course you did come to the Maldives to relax and relax you will. Adopt the 'no news, no shoes' philosophy, hop on your hammock and order that cocktail. Take it from us relaxation has never been easier.

Stop thinking about your desert-island dream and contact Mahlatini to make it a reality.
