Top Maldives Resorts To Visit In 2020

January 16, 2020

If you’ve decided upon the Maldives as your
holiday destination for 2020 you are guaranteed the wow-factor – these
beautiful tropical islands strung across the equator in the Indian Ocean are
every bit the paradise you imagined. They all have the trademark sugar-soft
white sand beaches, aquamarine lagoons and barefoot casual luxury so how can
you pinpoint the one that’s right for your dream trip? Our collection of top
Maldives resorts to visit in 2020 is a good place to start.

Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi

Kudadoo Maldives Private Island by Hurawalhi is a sustainable, ultra-luxury retreat with the Anything.Anytime.Anywhere all-inclusive concept offering ‘everything under the moon’. Unlimited dining, unlimited spa treatments, unlimited water sports and scuba diving are all included in the package. Your personal butler will curate moments of magnificence at every turn – from days of effortless adventure to evenings of fine dining under the sea; from experiencing the healing qualities of Lonu Cave – the Maldives’ first Himalayan Salt Chamber, to joining the sommelier in the owner’s wine cellar. This award-winning luxury escape is 100% solar-powered, stunningly designed and guaranteed to take your breath away.

Hurawalhi
Island Resort

Home to the world’s largest all-glass undersea
restaurant, Hurawalhi Island
Resort
is a 5-star naturally chic
adult’s escape that prides itself in treading lightly on the environment. The
house reef surrounding the island is spectacular and teeming with life – you
can join the resident marine biologists for snorkelling and learn more about
the fragile eco-system. From the first meal at Hurawalhi, you will embark upon
an exquisite culinary journey where the collection of choices and attention to
detail, not to mention the otherworldly views are sure to sate your appetite.

Veligandu
Island Resort & Spa
 

Voted the most romantic resort in the
Maldives, 4.5-star Veligandu Island Resort & Spa is a definite favourite among couples. The quality
of food and beverage offerings at the resort is matched with the high standard
of service delivered by the long-serving and dedicated team. With the picturesque
sandbank to enjoy, excellent house reef for diving and snorkelling and close
proximity to world-famous Hammerhead Shark Point, ‘Big Blue’,
memories are just waiting to be made.

Komandoo
Island Resort & Spa
 

A true adults-only escape, Komandoo Island Resort & Spa is a 4.5-star boutique resort that is tailor-made for romance. On land, all is peaceful and serene with lush tropical paths meandering along the island, but venture along the house reef and you’ll find a very different story – it’s absolutely buzzing with life – huge shoals of fish darting around, turtles gliding by and moray eels watching from within the coral blocks. Experience the thrill of diving with an underwater scooter at Felivaru Kandu where the big fish like to hang out or opt for a more relaxed pastime with a treatment at the award-winning Duniye Spa.

Meeru
Island Resort & Spa
 

Meeru Island Resort
& Spa
is often cited as having one
of the best beaches and lagoons in the Maldives and is a popular choice with
both families and couples. As one of the larger Maldives resort islands, it
offers a wide variety of activities – you can enjoy a bicycle ride around the
island or even a game of golf on the pitch and putt course. If you’d like to
find out more about local Maldivian culture you can visit Meeru’s museum, if
relaxation is your top priority a visit to the spa will nourish the mind, body
and soul. Romance is always on the menu in the Maldives and Meeru is a popular
choice for couples wanting to renew their wedding vows, it’s the perfect
location for the whole family to celebrate with you as it has not only a kid’s
club but a teens club too!

Vilamendhoo
Island Resort & Spa
 

Vilamendhoo Island
Resort & Spa
 
is a 4.5-star resort and home to one of the best house reefs in the
Maldives, made perfect for snorkellers by way of the easy access from many
different points. The island occupies an enviable location close to popular
whale shark and manta ray hotspots so if you’re a scuba diver or snorkeller,
you will be guaranteed an amazing experience. Vilamendhoo has dedicated adult’s
only and family areas with activities to suit all tastes. Kids will love the
wading pool and playground while adults can indulge in the spa treatments at
award-winning Duniye Spa and sunset cocktails on the luxury deck.

Kuredu
Island Resort & Spa

Variety and choice are key features at Kuredu Island Resort & Spa; this large 4-star resort offers room categories and all-inclusive packages to suit all requirements with a vibrant dining and bar scene to match. Home to not only one of the largest dive centres in the Maldives, but also to the largest community of green sea turtles in the Maldives – meet them while snorkelling or diving and learn more from the resident marine biologist. At Kuredu you can be as active or laid-back as you wish, play golf at the 6-hole course, practise your swing at the Maldives’ longest driving range, go to the gym, enjoy water sports or take a yoga class. The kid’s club has an incredible selection of activities and offers babysitting too – Kuredu is a place for happy kids and happy parents too while the adult’s only area is a peaceful haven for couples.

Innahura Maldives Resort 

At Innahura Maldives Resort, life is easy. The atmosphere is unpretentious and
laid back and the island offers all the essential components of a Maldives
holiday at a more affordable price. Whether you’re travelling alone, with your
partner, family or group of friends you will love the uncomplicated concept of

When to Visit Maldives in 2020

January 16, 2020

If you’re planning a trip to the Maldives in 2020 and want to know when to visit, we’ve got good news…Maldives is a year-round holiday destination! With air temperatures sitting at around 30°C, bath-like sea temperatures of about 28°C, the equatorial sun shining almost every day and just enough rain to keep the palm trees green and vegetation lush, this is the idyllic tropical destination.

Two main monsoons govern the weather patterns of the Maldives and split the year into the low and high seasons.  The North-east Monsoon brings the high season with it and runs from November to April. At this time of year, the weather is usually great with long hours of sunshine, flat, mirror-like seas and great underwater visibility. This is the busiest time but, unlike other destinations, the beaches aren’t crowded and you’ll always be able to find peace and solitude.

The South-west Monsoon is from May to October, the Maldives’ low season, and you can experience less settled weather with a higher scattering of clouds, some rain but still a lot of sunshine. The underwater visibility can be reduced by higher levels of plankton and, for marine life enthusiasts, this is a cause for great celebration as the plankton-rich waters bring the gentle giants of the ocean – whale sharks and manta rays as well as an even greater abundance of fish. Lower prices make this a great value time to enjoy this dream destination.

As you look forward to your holiday, don’t worry about checking the weather – due to the vast area over which the Maldives is spread, and micro-climates varying even from one island to the next weather forecasts are unreliable; instead, visit the resort’s website and start planning the adventures you will have. There is a holiday of a lifetime awaiting you at Crown and Champa Resorts, all year round.
