Kuoni Insider

The Maldives just feels exclusive. Stepping off a speedboat onto a jetty floating above the Indian Ocean – encircled by abundant marine life in crystal clear waters, the soft white sands of a private island awaiting you – has a serious ‘wow’ factor.

Even the value resorts have an air of seclusion hard to find elsewhere in the world. Seven different islands later and I’d still return in a heartbeat."
