The first resort in the Maldives was opened
in 1972. During the last 33 years tourism has developed into one of the most important
industry in the country. In the Maldives each
resort is built on its own island - just one resort on each island. Now there are over 90 resort islands in the
Maldives, each island with its own unique natural beauty, style and concept. While some
offer you a holiday of total relaxation and peace, others offer many activities and
entertainment for you to enjoy. Some are designed using indigenous Maldivian styles while
others have incorporated the most modern concepts.
Some resorts offer a real getaway
from it all, of course with all the comforts in your room. These often make it a
point to avoid motorized water-sports, for the peace and quite you may prefer. At others
you may, get away from it all, if you prefer. However, there is a wide range of activities,
entertainment, and games on offer, so that you can get all you want, if you feel like it.
Leading brands in Maldives
Maldives has some of the leading hotel brands in the world. Some of the brands include Four Seasons, Hilton, One and Only.
Style is another aspect that you may want
to consider before you make your choice. Some resorts maintain the unique Maldivian style;
thatched roofing, sand underfoot and traditional-styled staff uniforms among other things,
with great care. While at others you would find the soft white sand on the beach and of
course the typical island atmosphere, but inside, public areas may be tiled, and the staff
uniforms, more formal.
In fact each and every resort is
unique in its own way. If you consider the individual resorts carefully before you make
your choice, you would have no trouble selecting one to suit your taste and holiday
