When vacationing in idyllic luxury resorts in Maldives, one’s holiday can be as enchanting and mesmerising, relaxing and rejuvenating and as exciting and exhilarating as they wish. For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, sunbathing by the pristine beach and indulging in world class spa treatments at hotels such as the Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa are essential distractions whereas excitement and exhilaration awaits guests willing to try their hand at the multitude of water sports Maldives offers. From kayaking, surfing and snorkelling to night fishing, diving with the Manta Rays and swimming with the sharks, the Maldivian islands have it all!

For those seeking to be enchanted by the natural beauty and charm of Maldives, tourists can choose from a range of options. A day excursion to one of the many uninhabited islands will provide tourists with the excellent opportunity to take in the natural beauty of the country at their own pace. Another interesting option is a night cruise where tourists will find themselves caught between the cosmos: the bright blanket of stars above and the glimmering and glowing plankton in the waters below mimicking the ever glowing heavens.

Similarly exciting experiences await those who opt for a sunset cruise along the Indian Ocean waters. Tourists can choose to take a cruise on a dhoni, a Maldivian boat made for the purposes of fishing and experience the wonderfully colourful and mesmerising sunsets this country has become well known for. During a sunset cruise, the lucky few may be able to observe one of the world’s friendliest mammals, the adorable dolphin making its way across the Ocean waters while the departing sun sets the sky on fire in an array of hues and shades. A sunset cruise is an excellent way to witness the natural beauty of Maldives and welcome nightfall in a unique way.
