Nowadays the natural beauty, the never-ending view of Blue Ocean, the undisturbed seascapes and the serene natural environment make the Maldives a special place for the many visitors who come here.

The sun, sea, and white coral sand are abundant in the Maldives; and the little tiny islets give a glorious sense of happiness and of being far away from the world and its troubles. Hence, the Maldives has become known to many as the place to learn "the art of doing nothing".

Overview of a tropical resort

Resort Maldives Maldives Hotels

A tourist resort, by the Maldivian definition, is an island all by itself It is dedicated specifically to the enjoyment of its own client. Most of the well-reputed hotels in the country fall under the definition of the tourist resort.

In addition to its own private beach, which goes all the way round the island, each island has its own encircling house reef which serves as a coral garden and natural aquarium. The shallow waters enclosed by the house reef serves as a large natural swimming pool.

Each resort is carefully landscaped with the natural vegetation judiciously preserved. The only manmade edifices on the typical resort would be the rooms and suites reserved for use by its guests, the buildings housing restaurants, cafe's, shops, lounges, bars, discos, diving schools and the like, in addition to staff lodgings and housing for support services in the nature of power generation, laundry, catering, etc.

Given this micro environment, it is amazing what most resorts have on offer. Air conditioning, hot and cold fresh water round the clock in the toilets, mini bar and private telephone in the guests' rooms is more the norm than the exception. Restaurants and coffee shops cater to the most demanding palate. Bars are well stocked and provide a convivial atmosphere. On-island shops offer a wide range of products, especially souvenirs and artifacts.

A wide variety of activities ranging from aerobics to volleyball and table tennis are on offer for the conventional sports enthusiast. Aquatic activities starting from the more conventional wind surfing and water skiing to parasailng are also on offer.

In short, a tourist resort offers everything one needs when on a tropical island holiday!
