People who want to relax in a beautiful island surrounded by azure waters go to Maldives. Whether you are simply strolling in the beach to enjoy the beautiful sunset or dozing off in the room at Fairmont in Maldives, the chances of having a disappointing vacation is slim to none. Life in the island is so relaxed and you will be sad to leave the place.
Maldives is composed of ring-shaped atolls – North Ari Atoll, South Ari Atoll, Laamu Atoll and many others. Within each atoll is a group of islands that is typically anchored by a small airport. The Velana International Airport, the main entry point for all travellers is located in the Kaafu Atoll. From the airport, a traveller can take a separate flight or a speedboat to transfer to the hotel.
The best time of the year to visit Maldives is during the dry season which is between December and April. However, expect accommodations to be very expensive. Those who plan to scuba dive or snorkel are guaranteed storm-free days and crystal-clear waters. It does not mean that travellers cannot visit Maldives during other months of the year. Balmy temperature in the mid-80 will allow guests to swim and sunbathe.
One of the things that visitors must not miss is fishing at sunset on board a 60-foot dhoni, the traditional Maldivian wooden boat. Another unique adventure is island hopping where guests are taken to nearby islands to snorkel and enjoy a packed lunch of barbeque. Some resorts design intimate escapes for couples with a fully packed picnic basket.
The best scuba diving sites can be found in Maldives. The waters are fed from the Indian Ocean and are rich with nutrients. Divers will be astonished at the amount of marine life from the brightly coloured tropical fishes to the reef sharks, whale sharks and sea turtles.
An understated but sophisticated Maldivian vibe awaits visitors at Fairmont in Maldives, a personal getaway that is not just a 5-star resort. The place is magical and guarantees a luxury escape from all stresses. Rooms have every convenience and luxury that guests expect to enjoy.
