Paradise? No problem.

If you’re planning to go all-out on a luxury holiday, the Maldives should certainly be on your list. Famous for its five-star resorts and picture-perfect setting, this Indian Ocean paradise is a real bucket list destination. Whether you’re celebrating a special anniversary or simply looking to treat yourself, a luxury holiday to the Maldives ticks all the boxes.

Instantly recognisable by its turquoise waters, powdery white sands and overwater villas, the Maldives has become synonymous with luxury getaways. And it’s not hard to see why. The five-star hotels in the Maldives are some of the best in the world, with incredible service and first-class accommodation. And the unique set-up of one resort per island gives you total seclusion, as you explore your very own desert isle.

Luxury resorts in the Maldives take comfort and style to a whole new level. You can expect spacious overwater villas with panoramic sea views, private balconies and steps straight down into the bath-warm ocean. Go for a soak in your hot tub, take a cooling dip in your plunge pool, or ask your butler to bring a bottle of Champagne.

But your luxury Maldives holiday extends far beyond your room. Pamper yourself in the spa, where you can unwind with therapeutic treatments or a soothing massage. Sip handcrafted cocktails by the pristine beach, or select a fine wine recommended by your sommelier. And, in the evening, take your pick from your resort’s incredible restaurants – you’ll have a range of cuisines and gourmet dining options to choose from. Some of the best resorts in the Maldives even have an underwater restaurant, so you can admire the marine life while you dine.

A luxury holiday to the Maldives is all about incredible experiences and high-class touches. Whatever you’re looking for, our travel experts will help you choose the perfect resort for an unforgettable getaway.

The Maldives has a fantastic offering of luxury hotels, including five-star resorts and adults-only retreats. Whether you want a dining-centric escape or a lavish overwater villa, we’ve got just the thing.

Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa is one of the best resorts in the Maldives. This hideaway takes beachfront luxury to the next level with gorgeous villas – either on the beach or perched over the Indian Ocean – plus a nine-hole golf course and six restaurants and bars.

Set on its own private island, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers both beach villas and overwater villas, all of which come with their own private pool. Elsewhere, you can chill out at Talise Spa with a Thai herbal massage or a therapeutic Maldivian wrap.

Meanwhile, five-star LUX* South Ari Atoll is something of a foodie paradise, with more than 10 places to eat and drink. You can feast on seafood, Thai dishes and Italian specialities, to name a few. Or you could simply relax in the two infinity pools and serene spa.

Adults-only luxury

For some, a luxury getaway also means a tranquil one. If that’s the case, you should consider staying at an adults-only resort in the Maldives, where you can read your book in peace by the pool and enjoy romantic dinners.

Exclusively for adults, Hurawalhi Island Resort has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Unwind with a massage for two at Duniye Spa, and sip bubbly in the Champagne Pavilion. You can eat your way across the globe at the resort’s restaurants, but our favourite one is 5.8 – the largest underwater restaurant in the world.

You & Me by Cocoon is another luxurious adults-only hotel. Designed with romance in mind, this beautiful resort offers secluded villas and suites – each with sweeping sea views – and a range of spa treatments. Take part in a sunset yoga class, watch talented chefs create art-like meals, and enjoy rich vintages from the resort’s own wine cellar.

Overwater villas

If you really want to treat yourself, why not stay in an overwater villa? When it comes to luxury holidays in the Maldives, this really is the cherry on top of the cake.

Perched on stilts above the crystal-clear Indian Ocean, overwater villas offer sea views like nowhere else. You’ll wake up to the sight of turquoise waters, and fall asleep to the sound of the gentle waves below. Romantic and private, overwater villas often come with a hot tub or sea-view bathroom, plus a sun-soaked balcony. And, when you want to go for a dip in the ocean, you only need walk down your private set of steps, straight into the water.

Most five-star hotels in the Maldives – including OZEN by Atmosphere, Cocoon Maldives and Jumeirah Vittaveli – have overwater villas. Meanwhile, Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa is the only place in the Maldives with overwater villas for families. Take a closer look at our overwater villa holidays. Whatever you’re looking for, our travel experts will be happy to help you find the best resort for you.

Fine dining

As part of your luxury getaway, you can look forward to gourmet menus filled with mouth-watering dishes. Most five-star resorts here have between three and five restaurants, but some – like LUX* South Ari Atoll – have even more. Wherever you stay, you’ll find all kinds of cuisines on offer, from Italian and Indian to Japanese and Thai. Plus, you can try traditional Maldivian dishes, featuring ingredients like fish, coconut, rice and a mixture of spices.

Looking for something a little special? Some resorts have an incredible underwater restaurant, where you can watch the surrounding fish and rays swirling around you. If that sounds like a must-do experience, consider at staying OZEN by Atmosphere, Hurawalhi Island Resort, or You & Me by Cocoon.

And no luxury Maldives holiday would be complete without dinner under the stars. Ask your resort to arrange a private meal on the beach, or get room service delivered right to your balcony.
