What to expect on your Maldives holiday

There is not a lot to expect in the Maldives beyond a fabulous and relaxing holiday. Days spent lying in the sun reading books or listening to music, delicious fresh fish cooked to perfection, fresh fruit in abundance and impeccable service.

For those that dive, the clear waters are teeming with fish and night dives, in particular, can be fascinating. If switching off and doing absolutely nothing is your ideal holiday, look no further than the Maldives.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.
