My husband and I are planning a trip to the Maldives from 3 - 11 February 2017 and would appreciate some ideas and suggestions regarding the planning of this trip. We have 8 nights to spend in the Maldives, and thinking of visiting the South Ari Atolls and arrive by seaplane. ( the reason we are interested in the South Ari Atolls is that we hear it's better for snorkelling & diving, but please correct me if I'm wrong!)
We have a few 'must have' requirements/wishes and these include: a resort with superb photo opportunities surroundings (as we are both keen nature-photographers), an all inclusive package, over-water villa, fantastic house-reef & diving and loads of excursions ( for example island hopping, sand-bank picnic, day-trips etc.) We would also prefer a resort that is less popular with large groups of families with kids. Although be love children, we would love to spend our holiday in a quiet, tranquil environment but still have the opportunity to socialise with other people over cocktails.
Our budget allows 4/5* and if the resort has everything we dream of, we won't mind spending money.
I look forward to your ideas and suggestions and thank you very much!
