Luxury All Inclusive Maldives Paradise with a Dubai Stopover

Inspirational island getaway to Maldives and United Arab Emirates

Enjoy an All Inclusive stay in the tropical Indian Ocean paradise of the Maldives coupled with an exciting en route stopover in Dubai. Stay in the heart of this amazing city surrounded by glitzy skyscrapers, then relax on a tranquil island of whispering palms close to nature - the perfect city and beach twin-center. Begin with a few days at the lavish Palace Downtown hotel, set beside the iconic Burj Khalifa tower in downtown Dubai.

Once you've been photographed with the tower behind you, head off to the top of it, the world's tallest building, for more photos up there. After you've had your fill of sightseeing, relax by the hotel pool or enjoy a well-deserved afternoon tea. Then it's time for a change of gear. Fly off to Ayada Maldives to wrap yourself in relaxed luxury, butler service, private pools and day beds hanging over the sparkling lagoon. For the more active, extensive water sports await, but it's mostly about relaxation here and no more so than at 'Ile de Joie', 100 meters out on the lagoon, and the perfect place to enjoy the star-filled Maldivian sky.
