About the location
Made up of more than 1,000 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is the quintessential get-away-from-it-all destination. It's a one-hotel-per-island affair, with properties ranging from luxe hideaways with stylish restaurants and bars, to rustic-chic retreats that draw on traditional Maldivian design. 

The islands come with a natural colour scheme of green, white and blue - green for the glossy palms, white for the sugary sands, and blue for the photo-perfect lagoons that surround them. Beneath the waters things are just as spectacular, with colourful coral reefs and exotic sea life just a short swim from the beach. The Maldives is also home to some of the best scuba sites in the world, and hotels can arrange boat trips for keen divers.

Being surrounded by the sea means that fish (tuna in particular) is a key focus in Maldivian cuisine. Coconut is also used liberally - mixed into creamy curry sauces, sprinkled on top of salads and used in rich desserts. You'll also find plenty of dishes inspired by Sri Lankan and Indian cuisine.
