There’s something genuinely unique about exploring one (or more!) of the chain of coral islands that make up the Maldives. Scattered among 26 Indian Ocean atolls, there are around 160 secluded resorts to choose from, each one offering a different spin on paradise. The Maldives — located off India’s southern tip and comprising 1200 islands altogether — are set amid shimmering blue and turquoise lagoons and fringed by pure white sands. The climate is gentle, and while it may be a cliche, time really does seem to stand still as you gaze out across crystal-clear waters towards an infinite horizon. Perfect for kicking back, relaxing and resetting, but ideal too for trying out new beach and water sports as well as exploring Maldivian culture and cuisine. And there’s no high or low season — because of their location, the Maldives is a year-round destination.

It’s hard not to talk in cliches when it comes to the Maldives. But it’s all true — these islands are among the dreamiest of dreamy destinations, with their beautiful white-sand beaches, turquoise lagoons, coral reefs, and sensational sunsets. We’re completely seduced — as are our Love Travel Adventures clients who honeymooned in the Maldives! But despite the beauty, tranquillity, and extraordinary location, a Maldives adventure is both accessible and affordable. We work in tandem with trusted local tour operators to create exclusive year-round offers in carefully selected resorts that will transform your personal Maldives dream into an unforgettable date with paradise.
All international flights are included, from regional airports convenient to you subject to timetables and availability.
Your Love Travel Adventures price is also inclusive of all ground and sea travel to chosen destinations. Costs are based on two adults sharing a double or twin room, subject to adventure duration.
We offer a mix of accommodation options, from Standard to Deluxe with a minimum bed-and-breakfast basis through to full board.
All the islands that make up the Maldives are year-round destinations. Because of their location in the Indian Ocean, there’s no set weather pattern to worry about and you can confidently travel whenever works best for you.
If value for money is key, then the best months to explore the Maldives are May to October.
The local Maldives currency is the Rufiyaa, and one of these is worth slightly less than 5p. There are also Rf1 and Rf2 coins. One Rufiyaa comprises 100 Laari, and there are 1, 5, 10, 25, and 50 Laari coins. So a 10 Laari coin is worth less than a sterling halfpenny!
Unsurprisingly, you’ll use notes most often, from Rf5 (worth just over 20p), to Rf500, just over £22. If you bring with you — say — £200 in cash, you will get about Rf4,400 in return.
The US dollar is legal tender throughout the Maldives, and it may be useful to carry a mix of dollar and smaller denomination Rufiyaa notes to use for tips to local guides. You can also pay in some resorts using sterling or Euros.
We’d recommend bringing some sterling notes and swapping them for Rufiyaa at the airport. The Bank of Maldives counter in the arrival hall is the only dedicated foreign exchange in the islands. The alternative is to exchange money at banks in the capital Malé, but you may have to queue.
This is the exciting part! Tell us where you want your Maldives experience to take you and we’ll put together your bespoke Love Travel Adventures trip.
