Though the island nation is warm and sunny year-round, the best time to visit the Maldives is from November to April in order to make the most of the dry season. The monsoon season runs from May to October, peaking around June.

Experience a sense of calm from the moment you step off the plane as life slows into a relaxed rhythm. With exceptional service and indulgent treatments, many of our luxury wellness hotels in the Maldives host an array of experiences that tap into the mind, body and soul. Enjoy days filled with yoga classes beside the sea and treatments with organic ingredients, before gliding alongside manta rays and spotting dolphins, topped off with sensational earth-to-table dining.
