Always dreamed of visiting the Maldives? Setting foot in this magical region is like entering a different world. Endless expanses of azure waters teem with rich marine life and colourful coral reefs, and the stretches of pristine beaches invite you to discover in a host of cultural, culinary and wellness experiences. From leisurely romantic retreats and precious family holidays to a tropical adventure spent exploring the vast ocean, the Maldives promises an escape to the paradise you seek.
From north to south, the islands and atolls of the Maldives offer a range of experiences as diverse as the tropical life that surrounds them. While powdery sands and blissfully warm waters can be found all around, each island boasts unique reef systems, underwater installations, and particular marine species you can spot on your dive. Explore the endless ocean in whatever way you feel called to — from active water sports like kayaking and water skiing to leisurely cruises on a private yacht.
There’s plenty of ways to play in paradise on land too, including private or bespoke arrangements. Join expert-led fitness and wellness programmes, unwind with indulgent treatments at overwater or outdoor spas, or venture out for a walk through lush greenery. Throughout the day, feast on an array of local fare and innovative international cuisine. Come dusk, retreat to your own private sanctuary.

Sirru Fen Fushi is our very own secret water island, as the locals call it. Located in the most exclusive atoll in the Maldives, this resort lagoon is home to the Coralarium — the country’s first and only coral regeneration project and underwater art installation. Through snorkelling tours led by our marine biologist, you’ll discover a stunning blend of art and science, as well as the resort’s 9-kilometre long house reef.
On the resort grounds, the outdoor treatment rooms and serenity pool at the spa offer a different kind of rejuvenation. For the creatively inclined, there’s also the art studio, where you can unleash any inspiration sparked by this tropical wonderland. As you make your way through all that’s on offer, don’t forget to stop by the marketplace to grab a bite of traditional Maldivian cuisine.

After hours, retreat to your overwater villa, or perhaps one of two underwater Aqua Villas, and try to spot up to 13 species of sharks on your dive — something you’ll only be able to do at Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort! Younger ones can stay entertained too, with an indoor sports centre for children, and an enriching programme of events including nature walks and treasure hunts.
