How to EnjoyChristmas in the Maldives
Christmas falls during the peak season to visit the tropical islands of the Maldives, making it the ideal destination for the holidays. The warm weather, calm waters, adventurous activities, and magnificent views of the Indian Ocean make it a perfect getaway from the cold climates of the Northern Hemisphere.
But how can you enjoy a tropical Christmas in the Maldives? From water sports to island hopping, relaxing spa treatments and more, there’s a variety of ways you can celebrate the holiday season in the Maldives.
Most islands offer myriad water sports that you can engage in such as scuba diving, snorkelling, open water swimming, surfing, and stand up paddleboarding. The calm waters during this time period help make it suitable for individuals of varying abilities, so do not be afraid to bring your kids along.
Keep in mind that if you are scuba diving, you will have to be PADI certified. Even if you are not, many resorts such as Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma Maldives offer these courses, so you can explore the vibrant reefs and intriguing shipwrecks near the islands. From whale sharks and manta rays to crabs and sea turtles, you’ll be swimming with the exotic marine life while Santa gets busy delivering presents under the tree! Don’t worry, we hear he swaps the sleigh for a jet ski to reach our islands.
Each island possesses something unique, which makes things more interesting. Some of the islands may feature an iconic resort, some may have natural wonders, and there are a few where you can witness local life.
A great example of a unique natural wonder, can be seen in Vaadhoo island in Raa Atoll. This island is populated by the local community and is home to the ‘sea of stars’; a unique stretch of beach that glows a radiant blue during the evening. Just like that, many other islands have something different to make them stand out from the rest.
However, if you’re keen on spending the whole day on a private island, the resort you’re staying at should be able to plan a picnic on an islet just for you and your loved ones.
Rejuvenate in a Spa
With modern spas and wellness centres located in several resorts in the Maldives, you can have a truly pampered Christmas! Swap the usual holiday stress for a relaxing massage in the tropics during your stay. Whether you’re travelling with your family or partner, spa centres can cater to all groups of travellers to ensure everyone is rested, relax and refreshed.
Each resort in the Maldives always has something unique about its treatments. From the rustic beauty of the island to unique spa treatments in special complexes that are underwater, you can expect nothing but the best in services and facilities. Your mind, body, and soul will be ready to take on the world once more when you leave.
The hospitality provided at several island resorts allow you to enjoy the best of the country. Many hospitality providers always have something unique for their guests to enjoy.
Some islands are great at providing idyllic dining facilities such as a grand Christmas feast where you can dine under the starry night sky, complete with a decorated tree, festive music and more. Similarly, there are other islands that specialise in providing an intimate setting that would make their guests feel right at home. The staff of the island resort will be more than happy to accommodate your special requests as well.
