It doesn't get much better than the Maldives!

Having worked in travel for over 11 years my first trip to the Maldives was well overdue - and my experience completely exceeded my expectations!

The Maldives consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands groups in a double chain of 26 atolls, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometres, making the country one of the most distinctive destinations in the world. From the moment the sea plane took its position in the sky I was mesmerised and overwhelmed by what my eyes witnessed. Never have I seen such natural beauty or such vibrant and vivid tones of blue!

My "home" during my brief visit was Diva, which boasts space and variety not often found in the Maldives. It's the perfect choice for the more active, so if exhilaration is your middle name, take a chance and see if you can find a whale shark to swim with... Families are also well catered for here and your little ones will love the daily feeding of the stingrays and baby shark and of course the Kids' Club and all of its activities. With seven restaurants and six bars to choose from you are not short of choice here. For a little pampering make sure you book a visit to the Infinity Spa, which offers 11 treatment pavilions set within the gardens and four treatment pavilions over the water.

From the moment I arrived in the Maldives the hospitality I received was second to none; this really is an ideal location to spend quality time with your loved ones. It might have taken me 11 years to get there but it certainly won't be 11 years before I go again; I can't wait to my return with my own family!
