Top Resorts for Adult-Only Holidays in the Maldives

October 30, 2019

Whether you are planning your honeymoon, anniversary trip or a couple’s getaway with friends, the Maldives is an ideal choice. With stretches of white, sandy beach and lush tropical islands surrounded by turquoise lagoons, few places are as beautiful as the Maldives. For travellers seeking the privacy and tranquillity that adult-only resorts offer, here are a few properties that fit the bill.

 

Komandoo Island Resort & Spa couples the charm of a small island with the beauty of the Maldives. Welcoming guests 18 years and above, Komandoo is a haven of relaxation, guaranteeing peace and privacy. The 4.5-star resort offers 65 well-appointed villas, located over-water or on the beach, affording you spectacular views of the scenery. With a buffet restaurant, an over-water à la carte restaurant, and two bars on-site, your dining needs are well met. The two of you can get pampered at the award-winning Duniye Spa, which provides indulgent treatments. Further, you can spend your time enjoying the variety of laid-back leisure activities Komandoo offers, from dining on the beach to luxury sailing.

 

5-Star Hurawalhi Island Resort strikes the perfect balance of relaxation and excitement. Stay in lavish villas located over the lagoon or on the beach, dine in stunning settings such as underwater in the famous 5.8 Undersea Restaurant and embark on unique adventures from dolphin safaris to swimming with manta rays. Escape to Hurawalhi and enjoy the best of the Maldives on an island where you can be in the moment, and connect, unimpeded by the demands of the outside world. Hurawalhi welcomes guests 15 years and older.

Kuredu Island Resort & Spa, Meeru Island Resort & Spa, and Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa also have much to offer for travellers seeking an adults-only getaway.

Maldives Travel Guide: The Best Time To Visit The Maldives

October 30, 2019

The Maldives boasts of balmy temperatures all year round, making it the perfect destination for barefoot tropical luxury. Travellers in need of some sun, sand and sea, can spend a few weeks in the Maldives, basking in the sun, lazing around on the beach and exploring the astonishingly clear sea. A frequently asked question is the best time to visit this beautiful archipelago. There is no wrong time to visit the Maldives as the two seasons that the country experiences each offer a different kind of adventure.

The best weather is witnessed between November to April, with very little rainfall, sunny days and excellent visibility in the sea for snorkelling and diving. As a result of this, November to April are the busiest months, and the room rates tend to be a little steeper. This is the perfect time to embark on your diving adventure, have a symbolic ceremony on the pristine beach or even celebrate Christmas and usher in the New Year in paradise. With Crown & Champa Resorts, you can experience this and more, coupled with lavish accommodation and excellent service.

From May to October, the monsoon season is experienced. This brings about some rainfall, which often doesn’t last long, and reduced visibility. However, due to the increased amount of planktons in the ocean, this is the best time to spot manta rays, whale sharks and a variety of other marine life. Between May and October, the islands are quieter. This is an excellent time to go swimming with whale sharks and to trade in arduous city life for a few relaxed days on the beach. Our resorts have some of the best beautiful and unspoiled beaches in the Maldives. The prime location of some of our resorts puts you close to manta ray cleaning stations and whale shark points.

Whichever time you visit, you are guaranteed a wonderful time in the Maldives with Crown & Champa Resorts. With exclusive offers from our resorts’, you can have your dream Maldivian vacation whenever you please.

Happy World Tourism Day From Crown & Champa Resorts | #WTD2019

September 27, 2019

From its humble beginnings in 1972, with only two resorts, the tourism industry in the Maldives has grown in leaps and bounds. Now, with every new opening, we are seeing innovative solutions and extraordinary experiences that push the envelope of hospitality. September marks the day when World Tourism Day is celebrated. This year, the theme is ‘Tourism and Jobs: A Better Future For All’.

Globally, the tourism sector is a significant source of employment, accounting for one in ten jobs, due to the labour-intensive nature of tourism. Tourism is also a major driver of global economic growth. This rings true for the Maldives, with tourism contributing to 23% of the country’s GDP. The World Bank predicts that tourism will continue to be the main driver of economic growth for the Maldives.

As we reflect on the role that the tourism industry plays, we are also considering how Crown & Champa Resorts contributes to the sector. Specifically, the quality of jobs we are creating and how inclusive we are in that process. With over 3,000 team members in our employ and more job opportunities becoming available due to our expanding property portfolio, we are continuing to empower more people by offering competitive salaries and a variety of benefits.

With the growth of the tourism industry, now more than ever, we are conscious of sustainable tourism. Beyond the environmental-friendly measures we have implemented across all our properties, we regularly take part in awareness campaigns. Most recently, our properties organised World Clean Up Day activities and rallied the support of guests and team members in cleaning up neighbouring islands.

Crown & Champa Resorts remains committed to creating livelihoods and taking care of this beautiful country we operate in.

We are grateful to you for choosing Crown & Champa Resorts as your preferred choice in the Maldives. We look forward to welcoming you to our properties in the coming days.

Sincerely,

Martin Vossen

Chief Executive Officer
