Savour a slice of All Inclusive paradise in the Maldives. Wake up to glistening oceans and stroll across powder-soft sands. Then tuck into a tasty breakfast. Unwind on a euphoric island and let the drinks flow freely as you simply relax. Otherwise, ride the waves with water sports and enjoy the sea breeze before dining upon a tantalising lunch. As the day draws to a close, catch a vivid sunset while you dine in a tropical utopia.

For the family: Lux* South Ari Atoll

Fancy taking a Maldives family holiday? These islands aren’t just for romantics, and the Lux* South Ari Atoll Resort shows everyone how to have a good time with an All Inclusive stay.

The lowdown… Whether your whole family likes lounging or jumping into activities, you’ll discover enough variety to suit everyone on this island haven. Splash in the shallow turquoise lagoons and encounter colourful marine life on a snorkelling adventure. Take to water sport thrills on a complimentary kayak or pedal boat, then skim the waters as you kite-surf or water-ski. If you stay on land, tuck your toes into the sand as you kick off a game of beach volleyball, and dive into one of two infinity pools when you need to cool off.

When you’re ready for down time, take the children to the Kids’ and Teens’ clubs for bountiful fun with banana boat rides, scuba diving lessons and time on the tennis courts within the daily LUX* programme. Meanwhile, you can visit the tropical spa and satiate your senses before you reunite for an epic cinema experience on the beach. Worked up an appetite, yet? The choice of eight mouth-watering restaurants will put a smile on faces of even the fussiest eaters. With a selection of Japanese, Italian, buffets and leisurely lunch bars, let your taste buds tingle with flavours.

Insider’s tip: If you’re heading out for a day of island excursions or a boat trip, you can request a picnic for you and the family to enjoy wherever you set sail.

The lowdown… Soak up the exotic Maldivian backdrop at the Constance Moofushi Resort on a romantic adventure with the love of your life. Relish a blend of relaxing together in your villa and exploring wonders of the Indian Ocean.

Spend idle days together by the pool, sipping fruity cocktails and nibbling upon lavish lunches. Wander along the sugar-sand shores and feel the charms of this island light up your senses.

For spa: Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort

What better setting than the paradise of the Maldives for a spot of spa tranquillity? Unwind at a blissful beach and spa resort when you choose from an array of soothing treatments.

The lowdown… Relax with a variety of holistic remedies to health and wellness when you stay at the Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort.

Select from a menu of treatments with signature products at the eight secluded Spa Pavilions. Choose a massage, facial, body scrub or body wrap. Try the Sun Spa signature massage, which combines a variety of massage techniques with aromatherapy – or book the Jetlag massage to shrug off any remaining sluggishness from your long-haul journey to the island. Immerse yourself in the outdoor flower bath, rejuvenate under the rain shower, then recline in the garden with a cup of herbal tea and the aroma of incense. When you’re ready for a change of scenery, burn off some energy on the tennis courts, then take a dip in one of the fresh water infinity pools. Peckish? There are five eateries to choose from, along with two bars that serve speciality cocktails.

Insider’s tip: Refresh your senses with a spa break in the Maldives – just remember to keep some money aside for your spa experience since treatments cost extra.

For scuba-diving: Oblu By Atmosphere At Helengeli Island

Experience one of the best diving sites in the world and explore an underwater utopia. Go scuba-diving above coral and watch as swooping manta rays, reef sharks and colourful fish breeze past you.

The lowdown… Water world lovers will fall for the ocean charms at the Oblu Resort. Start your adventures along the house reef – but venture out to more of the 30 prime diving and snorkelling locations. You’ll be spoilt for choice. The sea life in the Maldives will set your senses alight: turtles, ray, sharks, butterfly fish, angelfish, clownfish, parrot fish – just to name a few. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished diver, let the Atmosphere Aqua Club arrange your dive of a lifetime. Join the PADI certified dive school to scuba with experienced experts.

Switch it up and keep your head above water with the complimentary stand-up paddle boards, pedalos and kayaks. Alternatively, bask on the beach under palm trees and simply soak up the sublime views. When your tummy starts rumbling, head over to The Spice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Just Grill offers a wonderful island atmosphere for fine-dining in the afternoon and evening. Wet your whistle at Helen’s with flavourful cocktails, unlimited spirits and beers, house-pour wine and more, as you watch the sun disappear in a blaze of colour come sunset.

Insider’s tip: For the best scuba diving conditions, the optimal time to visit is between January and April. For extraordinary diving excursions, avoid poor weather – as this will limit visibility.
