    If you seek, you can get a creative end to your palate, the Michelin chefs have lined up some unique trademark dishes just for you.

    On very personal experience, I have certain food allergies, which with age I grew out of. With age still, the smell or the mention of the food nauseated me.
    I went a bit daredevil once, to try dishes that consisted of my old allergies. Knowing it would take a toll on me, not due to allergies, but that my taste buds would instantly reject them; I rose up to the challenge.
    I went through several dishes to which I thought I would have a rough ride but fell madly deeply in love with each bite I took.

    The Maldives you made me fall in love with great cuisines all over again!

    Why the Maldives people ask me?

    Comparing other destinations of Sun, Sea, and sand; Maldives is a destination I have truly had the blessing of experiencing its virtues.

    Very often people question what is special in the Maldives other destination do not have. What do we seek in our vacation memorable, fun and better yet an escape from our lives our own castaway; breaking free from stress, tired life, busy life, the worries we carry that would be more like the blunt truth our distraction.

    Has anyone wondered from a business perspective why in the small islands all international brands globally come together in one country? Where else does this heaven of luxury exist? Why fashion brands open resorts as a franchise in the Maldives?

    Yes, there is the obvious that the Maldives has to offer the luxury, pampering, the tropical weather, sun, the clear blue waters, coral and the breathtaking marine life that is always stated and emphasized on.

    The Maldives is a seclusion destination, a switch off destination, an escape destination. The aura of Maldives is such that you truly emotionally and mentally disconnect from worldly worries. A destination you feel your honeymoon is endless, your family vacation is fun-filled like the whole island is your playground. Your worries, stress and busy life take a sink. This is neither a party destination nor a shopping fiesta. It’s your solitude.

    The Maldives is where a vacation is not complex, a destination that spells vacation away from home, stress, work the perfect getaway and one of the few destinations where it is on arrival visa for 30 days for the whole world. The time you’re truly disconnected from the world and you concentrate on the people you share your journey with.

    That is why the Maldives is special! The Maldives is your Robinson Crusoe experience, your escape, your family time and your never-ending honeymoon.

    THIS is MALDIVES!
