Itinerary

3 Nights – Dubai
7 Nights – Maldives


✈ UK – Dubai (3 Nights): You’ll start your holiday by flying from your chosen UK airport to the diverse UAE city of Dubai for 3 nights where ultra-modern city-life meets beach side fun. Everything here is ‘World-Class’ from the shopping, hotels and restaurants to the golf courses, indoor skiing and water parks; they are some of the best in the world!

Choose one of the dramatic modern hotels to stay in and enjoy the sunshine and water parks by day and some of the finest bars and restaurants in the world by night. There are also traditional markets for browsing and bartering to the extravagant ‘Supermalls’ – you’ll realise that shopping is serious business here! There’s also every kind of activity from dune buggy adventures to high-speed jet ski tours – so you can spend a day out in the desert or on the water.

Take a lift to the top of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building and also enjoy an abra trip (wooden water taxi) to see the old Dubai at Deira. With over 5,000 restaurants and some of the world’s best chefs, there’s plenty to choose from – enjoy the popular Friday brunches as well as cocktails at the top of towering skyscrapers.

✈ Dubai – Maldives (7 Nights): After making the most of this incredible city you will then fly on to the Maldives for a week on this idyllic archipelago. Here each island is home to a single resort so you’ll find your tropical desert island dream. Scattered across the Indian Ocean, each island also has its own personality from the ultra-luxurious to the more Robinson Crusoe laid-back vibe, but one thing that unites them all is their tropical-paradise beauty which inspires total relaxation.

Depending on the resort you choose, you will be met at the airport on the main island of Male and be whisked off in either a speedboat or seaplane onto your chosen island – now that’s not a bad way to travel!

With fine white sand, palm trees and crystal clear blue waters The Maldives really are the ultimate exotic beach escape. With tiny boutique hideaways to all-inclusive resorts, and contemporary hotels to rustic retreats, there are a plethora of hotels to choose from and each one enjoys the exclusivity of its own island.

Along with outstanding spas and fantastic gourmet restaurants the Maldives is the ultimate romantic destination where you can totally chill out and at the end of the day enjoy sun downers savouring the most beautiful of Indian Ocean sunsets.

✈ Maldives -UK: After a week on paradise you will be collected by speed boat or sea plane and taken back to Male where you can fly back to your chosen UK airport.
