Private jet travel to The Maldives

Situated in the Indian Ocean south-west of India and Sri Lanka, The Maldives is a chain of over a thousand islands. Its remoteness is a big part of its appeal, along with some of the best beaches in the world, abundant sea life and lush landscapes. 

Most of the islands in The Maldives are tiny and uninhabited, but over 100 have been developed for tourism. With exclusive villas and and resorts spread across multiple islands, this gives a secluded and luxury experience. The peak tourism season is December to April when the weather is warm, dry and less windy - making The Maldives a perfect winter sun destination for those from the Northern Hemisphere.

26 of the islands are actually atolls – a ring-shaped coral reef encircling a lagoon – and the North and South Atolls are home to many of the most exclusive places to stay, including secluded water villas which can only be reached by boat or seaplane, or whole private islands available to rent for a truly exclusive experience. The many excellent dining opportunities take advantage of the stunning surroundings, including underwater restaurants, and private dining on the beach.

A trip to The Maldives revolves around the water, whether for sailing, jet skiing or fishing. It is famously one of the best places in the world for diving and snorkelling, with crystal clear seas, warm water temperatures and a rich variety of sealife inhabiting the vibrant coral reefs.
