Can I go now – Maldives
The Maldives, open since mid-July, are one of the most naturally socially distanced destinations one could visit. Factor in that the resorts are limited to one hotel on an island and this slice of Indian Ocean paradise looks particularly appealing in our current world situation.
Our pick here is Soneva Jani which has just 24 over-water villas, each one opening onto its own stretch of sparkling lagoon. They’ve all got private pools and some even have a slide from the top floor straight into the lagoon – hours of fun for children and adults alike! There are all sorts of other fun touches including retractable roofs, opening at the press of a button, to reveal starry night skies. Five restaurants, an observatory NASA would be proud of, and a beachfront silent cinema (guests are provided with Bluetooth headphones) provide plenty of evening entertainment.
Spend your days snorkelling around the house reef, diving in the rich marine sites nearby, or simply relaxing in this tropical idyll.
For a ‘fly and flop’ holiday we can’t think of anywhere better.
Update 15 September
The UK Foreign Office’s current advice for Maldives is similar to much of the globe and ‘against all but essential travel’. The US State department’s advice isn’t quite as forthright, but at Level 3 where they suggest travellers ‘reconsider travel’. We have arranged for clients to travel in such circumstances, but understanding the situation and having the right travel insurance in place is key. Please do talk to us if you’d like to:
