Located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, The Maldives are about as close as you can get to paradise on earth. The Maldives are an incredibly dispersed nation. When you're on one of the 1,200+ different islands that make up the Maldives, you're truly in one of the most remote slices of paradise the world has to offer.
Many islands in the Maldives are home to single resorts. Once you step foot on one of the islands, these fully self-contained resorts have everything that you might want, from world class dining and spa facilities to fully featured water sports centers. With some of the most pristine electric blue water, the extensive reefs of the Maldives are bustling with an abundance of marine life. Whether you want to relax in your overwater bungalow or suit up for some scuba diving to get a closer look at the marine life, you'll definitely be able to find something your speed in the Maldives.
With such remote locations, many resorts focus on the importance of eco-friendly practices and acting sustainably. These resorts are in a very unique position as fully featured five star resorts in the middle of the ocean. The utilization of renewable energy sources and efficient waste management are essential in order to reduce their ecological footprints as much as possible. The Maldives were unlike anywhere I've had the chance to visit before and it was truly amazing to see how much work goes on behind the scenes in order to create that classic Maldives experience.
