overview / intro

We found a good deal for a week long stay at a fancy resort in the middle of one of the atoll of islands in the Maldives. It took 2 days of travel to get there and 2 days on the way back since it's pretty much on the other side of the world, but totally worth it.

It is a super unique location and experience to see all these tiny islands in the middle of a huge ocean. They are somewhat close to each other (a couple miles in any direction) but far enough that you feel isolated on a private island and can barely see the next one in the chain on the horizon.

Most of the islands are private resorts. Ours had a gym, sport courts, several pools, many beaches, bars, restaurants, and about 100 bungalows/rooms. We opted to go all in and enjoy one of the villas that sits above the water in a shallow coral reef pool area. We could dive off the back deck into the water and snorkel or swim around and see the fish, coral, jellyfish, etc..

Each day was a different experience. We did snorkel trips to swim with turtles one day, we saw manta rays another day, and ocean dolphins, went on a sunset boat cruise, visited a tiny sand reef island that you could walk around in about a minute. Other days we worked out, went to the beaches, relaxed in the villa porch, visited all the bars.


  • splurge on an above water villa for the unique experience and to swim whenever you want
  • go on some guided trips to see fish, sharks, manta rays, turtles, reefs
  • you can skip the capital of Male, there's not much to do there and it's just a point of transfer for international flights to the other islands / resorts
