Maldives luxury resort

Accessible tourism overview:
We are a team of can-do people, and we are able to customise our tours and experiences to ensure that anyone can make the most of our tour options. We have welcomed a range of guests with different disabilities and ages and our guides are only too happy to help accommodate their needs. Our youngest guest has been 6 months old and our eldest guest has been in their 90s so the team are used to working with different age groups and adapting the tour and activities to be encompassing regardless of age, ability or experience. All we ask is that we are made aware of any specific requirements at the time of booking so that we can plan in advance.
Limited mobility:
We can offer ground floor accommodation options or properties with lifts and our activities can be adapted by our experienced and professional guiding team.
Guests with wheelchairs can be assisted to negotiate Male as well as most of the local islands we visit. We offer resorts where access around the property is on wooden board walks or paved pathways so there is no fear of wheels getting stuck in the sand. Some of our partner dive centres offer special days for locals with disabilities to try dive or snorkelling in safe and controlled conditions. If this is of interest then we maybe be able to accommodate this into your stay with us.
Cognitive conditions:
The people of the Maldives are naturally laid back and relaxed and you will find stays on local islands calm and peaceful. We select small family run properties and if you have specific requirements in regard to the activities included on our tours we are happy to tailor-make. We have a relationship with a local autism centre which allows us to access accompanying support if necessary.
'Free from' food:
As you may expect from an island beach nation the Maldives imports over 90% of its food, discounting the abundance of tuna, chilli and fresh coconut that form part of our staple diet. We appreciate that our guests may have special dietary requirements and are used to dealing with allergies, intolerance and special requirements. Providing we know in advance either before or at the time of booking we will do our best to meet your dietary requirements or at the very least advise you on what alternatives will be on offer.
This trip ensures safe and welcoming travel for LGBTQ travellers. It allows everyone to enjoy and discover our island paradise.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Maldives luxury resort


The Maldives is a fragile environment. It is more fragile and more in danger than most other places on earth. The country’s existence relies on healthy coral reefs and a moderation of the sea level rise. The Maldives struggles to eliminate all the rubbish produced by over 1 million tourists per year and whilst educating locals in waste management is all part of a large project, as visitors to their home we encourage our guests to support in the following ways and help by leading by example. For this reason and for the obvious difficulty in eliminating several materials, we suggest to bring back the empty containers of shampoo, bath foam, conditioner, cream and photograph film, Reuse plastic bags in shops. We are currently, in the process of designing and producing roll away shopping bags that will be given as a welcome gift to all our guests, with the opportunity for guests to purchase additional bags for us to distribute within the community.

We choose suppliers that match our environmental values. The resort we partner understands that maintaining the natural and local environment is of paramount importance and endeavor to evoke environmental awareness among their employees and guests whilst implementing sustainable policies to minimize the impact on the environment. The resort itself is adapting special arrangements to reduce power consumption as much as possible. For example using low consumption lamps whilst the air conditioning system also works as a water heater using the heat exchanger inside. This small but ingenious invention allows us to save an average of 1,200 KW per day and contributes to making the property an eco-resort.


Travelling with respect
We work to create good relationships between tourists and the local community. Visit's are arranged to the nearby inhabited island where income from tourists goes directly into the islands economy.

Campaigning for change
We recognise local issues and actively campaign to address them. We have this year shown support in conjunction with our partner PADI Dive Centres by involving ourselves in public awareness dives for various campaigns including, Dive for Diabetes, a condition prolific in the Maldives, Dive for Gaza with all funds raised being passed to the Maldives Gaza charity and Environmental Awareness dives to clear rubbish from local island harbour areas.

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 24 Sep 2016 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Snorkelling with Manta Rays. You need to be a very strong swimmer to get in the sea with the Mantas as they move very quickly. You also need to be confident with your snorkelling equipment as you will need to get it on/off very quickly. The marine biologist who co-ordinated the trip is very supportive and gives you lots of advice on how to be in the water.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

The Maldives is an expensive destination so you need to factor this into your holiday spending budget. Bottles of water/fizzy drinks are 3 - 4 times dearer than you would expect to pay in the UK. We found it worked well to be on the half board tariff and to buy a snack at lunchtime, but there was a limited choice of light meals. Check the small print of any deal as often only the buffet choice is included (even in the AI packages) and al a carte options are a costly extra. Everything attracts additional 22% local taxes so this pushes up you costs. There is not a lot to do in the evening so download some movies/tv shows to you Kindle/ipad.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The resorts employ local people so it helps the economy, but they also employ a lot of foreign workers which means money often goes outside the country.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was good, but for what it cost it should have been stupendous

Hi Elayne,

Many thanks for providing your feedback and advice to future guests.
We are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday. I know that you were excited to encounter manta rays so it comes as no surprise to learn it was one of the most
memorable aspects of your holiday!
As you note Maldives resorts can be an expensive option which is why we also provide local island holiday options which ensures your money goes directly back to the local communities with whom we work.
We would love to welcome you back to the Maldives in the future and perhaps next time you would consider a combined resort and local island stay.

Thank you again for your comments, which we will also share with the resort.
Kind Regards,
