Don't have the time or money to take a vacation right now? Here is a virtual trip, from me to you! The Maldives... ahh, take me!
Welcome to the Maldives
Welcome to the Maldives, where sands are white as the smiles of the locals, where fish swim happily in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, where the weather is a dream, and the deep rays of the sun wait to engulf you their arms.
In ancient times, the shores of the Maldives welcomed lost travellers. Still welcoming, these shores remain, providing a tranquil haven for visitors.
The Beach House
We're warning you: Upon arriving at this seemingly perfect island nation, subsequent vacations will likely pale in comparison. The island of Manafaru exudes pure paradise, with luxury water villas floating atop emerald water and beach suites surrounded by lush vegetation and wildlife. Fringed with banana and mango trees, the Beach House's completely remote location ' hidden on nearly the opposite side of the world from the US West Coast ' translates to less crowds and more peace and quiet. Customize your experience by choosing from 4 different levels of water villas and private-unit beach suites. Three restaurants with 5-star cuisine ensure you'll be well fed, and the stunning Amazon Pool, the country's finest, promises you'll stay cool. The place is brand-spanking new (with an opening in February 2008) and reasonably priced, so book your room before the rest of the world discovers the best kept secret in the Indian Ocean.
