Just back from… the Maldives


Emma Sparks, Deputy Editor at Lonely Planet, recently returned from a trip to the Maldives.

Tell us more… I spent five days exploring an island nation I’d always dreamed of visiting, in as many different ways as possible – by land, sea and sky. I stayed at Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa which is tucked away on a private island in the southernmost atoll of the archipelago. If you want a far-flung, middle-of-nowhere island escape, this is it.

In a nutshell… I can confirm: the Maldives looks just like it does in the brochures. The water is that blue. The sand is that white. The over-water villas are as epic as you imagine. But there’s more to these tropical isles than meets the eye. Drag yourself off the sunlounger and dig a little deeper to find abundant wildlife, rich culture and fascinating history.
