Maldives

About

A double string of 1,190 coral islands to the southwest of Sri Lanka, stretching north to just south of the equator, make up the Republic of Maldives.
We have hand-picked just a few of the spa best resorts here, but have many more on our books.  So, if you’re looking to go somewhere that we have not published on our site, please let us know.

Weather

The weather in the Maldives is exactly what you expect from your tropical paradise.  Pleasant temperatures all year round, with two main seasons:  the dry season (from the end of October until the end of March), and the rainy season (from the end of April until the end of October).

The dry season is therefore the prime time to visit the Maldives, when the weather is ideal for simply lazing on the beach, or diving in and around the hot spots in the Maldives.  The average temperature during the dry season is around 27C (80F).

The water temperature in Maldives never drops below 25 degrees, and with the average sunshine surpassing 8 hours in a day, it is difficult not to enjoy the blissful weather conditions.
