About the Maldives
The Republic of Maldives is a state in South Asia. It’s situated in the Indian Ocean, directly west of Indonesia and southwest of Sri Lanka, about 750km from the mainland. The location has gained much popularity in recent years as a luxury holiday destination for its unique accommodation, high quality food and service, and a range of entertaining activities. The best time of year to visit is November through April, outside of monsoon season. During this time, you can expect hot, dry weather and if you book outside the Easter holidays, generally quieter resorts.
