Discover some of the most idyllic white sand beaches in the world surrounded by turquoise lagoons, home to incredible marine life. With over 100 hotels to choose from we can advise the right island for honeymooners or families, couples or single travellers, sun worshippers or water babies, foodies or spa junkies.
The Maldives is made up of over 1200 islands scattered between a handful of atolls in the Indian Ocean. Each hotel occupies its own island with talcum powder beaches and azure waters so the difficult decision lies in selecting the right island for you, which is where Wix Squared comes in.
Access your castaway island by seaplane, speedboat or scheduled aircraft, then choose between a stilted over-water villa or a sandy beach villa. Every island has pros and cons, some have phenomenal house reefs, others pride themselves in exceptional service and culinary excellence, whilst several provide the perfect family retreat with plenty of activities.
We will help our clients select the best located villa on each island, reserve spa treatments and advise on the most memorable activities to pre-book, whilst securing competitive rates at each hotel.

99% of the Maldives is covered in water and it is the smallest country in Asia. It is also the lowest country in the world with an average ground level of 1.5 meters.
Eid marks the end of Ramandan and is based on the lunar calandar. At this time Muslims will celebrate with a huge feast over a 3 day period.
What to Eat
Try catching a yellowfin tuna, wahoo or mahi-mahi then having it sliced into fresh sashimi or cooked on the barbeque in front of you the same day.
What to Read
‘Beach Babylon’ by Imogen Edwards-Jones. Go behind the scenes in some of the most luxurious hotels in the world with a comical take on how to deal with demanding guests.
What to buy
With some of the best diving in the world in warm turquoise waters why not invest in a PADI course and take your certificate home with you.
Some of the islands we work with have a very relaxed and natural feel, yet still offer a high level of luxury with incredible food and service. Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani, Gili Lankanfushi and Six Senses Laamu have a ‘no news, no shoes’ policy whilst we can offer fantastic deals to combine the two COMO hotels, Maalifushi and Cocoa Island, both with a Robinson Crusoe vibe.
For a more modernised, contemporary style, Huvafen Fushi with its underwater spa or Amilla Fushi could work well. Alternatively to really push the boat out, consider One&Only Reethi Rah, Cheval Blanc or Velaa. Whilst the Anantara Kihavah, Niyama and the two Four Seasons hotels (Landaa Giraavaru and Kanuhura) work well for families.
The prices of activities, food and drink are not cheap in the Maldives hence you might be tempted to consider an all-inclusive island such as the ultra-modern Park Hyatt Hadahaa, the slightly rustic Constance Moofushi or the trendy Lux or JA Manafaru hotels.
Coco Privé and the Four Seasons private island offer exclusive experiences whereby you have the entire run of the islands to yourselves. Cheval Blanc has the ‘owner’s island villa’ which can accommodate 8 guests and the Private Reserve at Gili Lankanfushi is a floating paradise only accessible by boat.
The first cinema paradiso was built on Soneva Fushi’s helipad and a number of other islands now also offer this experience, projecting classic movies under the night sky accompanied by popcorn and your favourite tipple.
The turquoise lagoons and coral reefs lend themselves perfectly to kayaking, snorkelling, diving, surfing, paddle boarding and sailing. And we know which islands have the most vibrant house reefs, the best surf or the calmest lagoons.
With limited light pollution in the Maldives, it is easy to appreciate the star lit sky. We move your bed to the rooftop of your villa, organise an evening with an astrologer to view the constellations in an observatory, or open up the retractable roof on your villa at Soneva Jani.
Therapists from all over the world showcase their skills in the Maldives. Choose from an underwater treatment room at Huvafen Fushi, a complimentary massage at Amilla Fushi or Cocoa Island’s incredible hydrotherapy treatments.
Wix Squared can organise romantic beach dinners surrounded by candlelight, cheese and wine tasting in a private cellar, barbeque lunches on a remote sandbank, breakfast in bed at sunrise or a special blindfolded meal to heighten your senses.
Some islands target honeymooners and romantic getaways, whilst others are more child friendly with educational kid’s clubs and activity schedules for all ages. We know which islands suit each age bracket and which butlers and staff are best assigned to families.
After a week relaxing, dip into some culture in Colombo which is just a short hop from the Maldives, where we can arrange Segway rides, walking tours, tuk tuk rides and culinary experiences.
There are a number of direct flights between Male and southern India. Enjoy the relaxed way of life in Kerala along the sleepy backwaters or engage your cultural antennae in Tamil Nadu.
Fly with Emirates or Etihad for a short break in Dubai or Abu Dhabi en route to the Maldives. Enjoy the water parks, shopping malls and 360˚ views from high rise buildings, helicopter rides or seaplanes over the UAE.
The Maldives is the perfect destination to cast yourselves away with your closest family and friends to experience life on a private island for the entire time or as a day trip from your carefully chosen hotel. Celebrate on a deserted island or sandbank where we can ensure the following are on standby; private seaplanes, lavish speedboats, numerous watersports, expert chefs, trained masseuses, dive/snorkelling instructors, musicians, dancers, acrobats and even an edible palm tree cake for the guest of honour.
There are a number of boats that we work with in the Indian Ocean and we can either look to accommodate you all on one vessel or a number of separate boats with the best crew on board to cater to your every need, as you island hop from one picturesque island to another.
