We know how great a couple of weeks in India can be; but what about if you like to mix your holidays up a little bit? Do you tend to spend a couple of weeks travelling around a variety of places to ensure you see all the sights and get the best of all worlds? Sun, Sea, Sand and Culture? If that’s the case and you’re currently planning a trip to India, have you considered stopping off for a week in The Maldives either on the way there or the way back? It’s definitely a place we’d recommend for a break which is a little bit different but highly relaxing. As such, we want to offer some guidance on the very best Maldives hotels and what to do when you’re there.
The Maldives are an island nation located in the Indian Ocean; as such making it the perfect retreat after a hectic holiday in India, being just a short plane journey away. What is brilliant about The Maldives is that, whatever time of year you go, you’ll always get a similar temperature. The Indian Ocean keeps the islands heated to anywhere between 24 and 32 degrees all year round which brings about a lovely climate to relax in.
If you’re currently considering a trip to The Maldives around your stay in India, we would single handedly recommend you stay at The Banyan Tree Resort Vabbinfaru, the best hotel we’ve stayed in on the islands by a long shot. The resort is clean and tidy and always has a welcoming atmosphere; what more could you want.
When in The Maldives; our top recommendation of what to do is to go out and look at some of the marine life which the islands have to offer. With over 1,100 species of fish, 5 species of sea turtle, 21 species of whales and dolphins, 145 species of crabs, coral reef and much more, it’s one of the top locations in the world to go snorkelling and see something beautiful! We couldn’t recommend it enough to you.
All in all, The Maldives are just a short flight from India (being just 250 miles away) and offers an incredibly relaxing break at a price more affordable than you may think!
