Those seeking secluded destinations for a 2021 holiday when travel resumes should plan ahead for a trip to the Maldives, the Indian Ocean nation that lends itself perfectly to social distancing thanks to its unique geography and one-island-one-resort offering.

A naturally self-isolated paradise, the Maldives is home to powder-white sands and azure atolls, whilst its high-end resorts offer visitors days spent lapping up the luxury of the Indian Ocean and indulging in activities for every kind of traveller.

In the Maldives physical distancing comes naturally. As an archipelago nation, the geography of the Maldives lends itself to the distancing one needs during these times. Made up of 99% tropical waters, each of the Maldives’ 1,190+ islands are scattered throughout the middle of the Indian Ocean, providing travellers with an enormous amount of space to relax, unwind and rejuvenate in the comfort of their own company.

Unknown to many holidaymakers, the Maldives is world-famous for its unique one-island-one-resort offering, meaning that one hotel occupies an entire island to itself. These individual bubbles provide tourists with true desert-island escapism and the option to minimise their contact with the outside world if they wish. This feature not only keeps guests as safe as possible but also offers a highly personalised getaway where their every need is met by dedicated resort teams.

Home to some of the world’s most beautiful retreats and with an abundant choice of private villa facilities for guests to choose from, all of the Maldives’ resorts have reopened in-line with the COVID-19 safe tourism guidelines issued by the Maldivian Ministry of Tourism in June 2020. A pioneer in breathtakingly luxurious getaways and bucket-list experiences, the Maldives is well known for its extravagant resort offerings. It is also home to a number of premium all-inclusive retreats, ensuring the nation is the ideal destination for all travellers keen to avoid crowds during their holidays this year.

Restless wanderlusters can plan for unforgettable excursions offered by resorts to undiscovered sandbanks and travellers to the Maldives can also snorkel in reefs teeming with tropical fish, embark on private sunset dolphin spotting cruises or spend afternoons diving with the manta rays and whale sharks. For those looking for some much need R&R, practice calming yoga flows to the sound of the Indian Ocean on resort beaches or enjoy wellness treatments in under-the-sea treatment rooms, spas built on stilts over crystal-clear lagoon waters and in tropical gardens.

This naturally socially distanced haven makes for the perfect post-pandemic getaway thanks to its natural safety insurances and luxurious offerings.
