Maldives

Maldives

The Maldives lies in two rows of atolls just across the equator, covering an area of over 90,000 square kilometres in the Indian Ocean – 99 percent of which is sea, with land being just one percent. With over 1,190 coral islands ringed by a beautiful landscape of reefs, it is the most dispersed country in the world. The complex atoll structures of the Maldives are formed on ridges rising from the ocean and its unique geography and breath-taking natural beauty has made the Maldives one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in the world. Of the 1,190 islands, more than 120 have been developed as resorts and are in operation, and at least another 50 are under development. The Maldives is well-known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs, which boast some of the best dive sites in the world.

Seabourn

Seabourn

'The Seabourn experience is unlike any other form of travel. It is luxurious, yet relaxed… elegant, yet casual… sumptuous, yet understated. A concept designed centred around an intimate boutique hotel, which happens to be at sea.

This is a world of ultra-luxury, where space is generous and crowds are few; where names and wine orders are remembered, preferences noted, and wishes granted before they are spoken.

From the luxury of all suite accommodations to complimentary fine wines and spirits, and tipping neither required, nor expected policy, Seaboum exemplifies the definition of travelling well'
