Covering an expansive area of 90,000 square kilometers, this archipelago consists of 1,192 islands, aligned on the equator like scattered pearls.

Emerging from the summits of an ancient volcanic mountain range now submerged underwater, these islands form breathtaking coral atolls, each offering its own slice of paradise.Beneath the waves lies a magic underwater world, with over 2,000 marine species that rival the biodiversity of rainforests. From vibrant coral reefs to big manta rays and majestic whale sharks, the Maldives offer both novice snorkelers and experienced divers beautiful underwater sights and unforgettable encounters with marine life.

The Maldivian history dates back over 2,500 years, with early settlers arriving from present-day Sri Lanka and India, shaping the cultural mosaic of these islands. Situated at the crossroads of maritime trade routes, the Maldives became a melting pot of diverse influences, where people from different backgrounds started to forge their own unique traditions, which led to today's island life.At the heart of Maldivian culture lies the Dhivehi language, an Indo-Aryan tongue with roots in Sanskrit, reflecting the islanders' rich linguistic heritage. The Thaana script, developed in the 18th century, seamlessly blends Arabic vowels with Hindu-Arabic consonants, serving as a testament to the islanders' ingenuity.

Each resort occupies its own uninhabited island, offering unparalleled tranquility and privacy for travelers seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Whether lounging on pristine beaches, enjoying delightful cuisine, or embarking on exciting water adventures, the Maldives offer a sanctuary where dreams are woven into reality, leaving an unforgettable mark on every visitor's soul.
