Soak up the magic of the Maldives with Adaaran's exclusive resorts, and discover a tiny nation offering big experiences.

Make a splash

A Maldivian getaway needn't be purely about tranquil beaches and R&R. The warm waters are perfect for trying your hand at windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding and catamaran sailing — or, for the more adventurous types, jumping on a jet ski and zooming across the surface.

How: Adaaran Club Rannalhi is the go-to destination for anyone wanting to take full advantage of the sparkling seas, offering a wide range of water-based activities.

Take the plunge

It only takes one dive in the Maldives' colourful waters to see why the archipelago has become a mecca for divers. With stingrays, sharks and brightly coloured fish among the marine life on offer, this spot in the Indian Ocean is hard to beat.

How: Taking to the seas and diving into an underwater wonderland is easy at Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi, which has its own reef and nearby diving sites. Grab a board, too, as Hudhuranfushi's gentle waves make it the perfect spot for anyone after a spot of surfing in the Maldives.

Go exploring

The islands hold a wealth of things to see and do: from early-morning fishing to dolphin-spotting at sunset and embracing the traditional Maldivian way of life on the island of Meedhu, there's something for every kind of traveller.

How: Adaaran Select Meedhupparu offers guests a number of tempting trips, showcasing the rich culture and spectacular beauty of the Maldives.

Tuck in

Experience first-class dining options, from traditional Maldivian fare to the finest European plates. Sip a cocktail at sundown or take a lazy breakfast at dawn, all paired with a view fine enough to match the food.

How: Take a seat at the Fine Dining Restaurant at Adaaran Prestige Water Villas, enjoying a holistic meal one day and a tempting continental buffet the next.

Take five

Unwind amid spectacular surroundings, indulging in treatments that draw on the traditional practices of the Maldives. Look after both body and mind with a holistic spa experience, including aromatherapy massages and Balinese-style therapy, and enjoy complete rest and relaxation.

How: The Chavana Spa at Adaaran Prestige Vadoo caters to every guest's need, providing outstanding service in the tranquil ambience of Vadoo resort.
