Like drops of emeralds scattered across an aquamarine backdrop, situated on the most traveled ocean of the ancient world, the tiny island nation of the Maldives is a treasure trove of a unique collection of idyllic palm-fringed islands, ringed by unspoiled reefs, teaming with a kaleidoscope of ever-changing colors, patterns, shapes and textures that never fails to fascinate beneath the surface.
The Maldivian tourism industry has progressed a long way during its thirty years of existence and its popularity as an exclusive tourist destination is increasing both in its major generating markets in Europe as well as in new markets from around the globe. The Maldives continues to be distinguished for the sustainable and ecologic development of its tourism industry, high quality standard and secludedness of its position in the Indian Ocean, far away from the world’s problems.
With your first look the islands are hardly differ from each other - apart from their size: tropical vegetation with palms, mangroves, Scaevola, Frangipani or Hibiscus bushes, powder-white sandy beach, surrounding turquoise-blue seas. In fact the versatility of Maldives is in the detail, because of the “one island-one resort concept“ each resort is on an island of its own and the resorts in Maldives offer a broad spectrum with respect to conception, architecture, style and comfort. To plan a vacation in the Maldives, you must be well informed about your own interests and ideas in order to find the matching island under the vast list of possibilities.
