The Maldives is one of those bucket list places you just have to experience!  Located in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives consist of more than 1,000 islands that are surrounded by a lagoon and beautiful, clear water.

Among these islands, there are more than 100 resorts in the Maldives offering the ultimate luxury vacation. We stayed in an overwater bungalow as part of our dream honeymoon that also included a visit to London and a safari in Sri Lanka!
