What else do you have in life that is yours if not your moments?
The Maldives is a tropical nation in the Indian Ocean composed of 26 ring-shaped atolls, which are made up of more than 1,000 coral islands. It’s known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs.
However, tourism is the largest economic industry in the Maldives, as it plays an important role in earning foreign exchange revenues and generating employment in the tertiary sector of the country. The archipelago of the Maldives is the main source of attraction to many tourists visiting the island country.
Baros Maldives has been named the world’s most romantic resort for the sixth time. The resort has garnered the title, awarded by World Travel Awards, for the past four years in a row, and it’s not hard to see why.
Guests at the resort can choose from 77 ultra-luxurious villas, each of which comes with a private deck, beach sun loungers, an in-villa bar, deluxe bathrobes and slippers, yoga mats, a pillow menu, an outdoor rain shower, Wi-Fi, and a TV with a surround-sound system. Many have their own private pools.
There are multiple fine dining options to indulge in, as well as adventurous boat and sea excursions, a luxurious spa, and traditional Maldivian vow renewal ceremonies.
For honeymooners, nothing compares to the Maldives’ just married credentials. The archipelago’s trademark accommodation is stilted water villas, which come with four-poster beds and infinity views of the sea. The Islands’ restaurants, meanwhile, have turned tables for two into an art form.
Hospitals in Maldives
Medical facilities are limited to two hospitals on the capital island, and neither has a trauma unit. Treatment can be expensive so make sure your travel insurance is comprehensive.
