Sparkling white sun-kissed beaches;
crystal-clear lagoons studded with profusely-colored corals;
azure warm seas with an undisturbed, exotic marine life;
palm-fringed islands; the pervading serenity; all of it
summarized by the famous Moroccan traveler Ibn Battuta
describing Maldives as "One of the wonders of the world".
Maldivian archipelago located 300 miles southwest of the
southern tip of India and 450 miles west of Sri Lanka is a
beautiful string of 1,190 low-lying coral islands scattered
across the equator in the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean,
giving us a rare glimpse of what is aptly described as a
The Sun, the Sand and the Sea.
These are just the three simple realities beckoning tourists
from far and wide to these little islets, giving as a result, a
glorious sense of happiness and proving to be a heavenly getaway
from the world and its worries. No wonder then that tourists
flock in large numbers to the 70-odd self-contained island
resorts provided with all the comforts and warmth exuded by
traditional Maldivian hospitality.
