DETAILED DESCRIPTION

Experience the boltholes of the global elite, where five-star luxuries are practically a way of life. Boat, fly, snorkel, scuba, swim, and lounge your way through the Maldives during your stay on the easily-accessible and absolutely stunning North Malé Atoll. Next, it’s on to Dubai, where you’ll check into one of the top hotels in the world, from which you’ll explore the City of Gold, taking in both its colorful past and its shiny, modern present. This is an nine-day journey that will leave you bronzed, relaxed, and totally in awe. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: North Malé Atoll

Fly in to the Maldives’ capital of Male, and escape the densely-populated city on a speedboat, which will whisk you away to the stunning Kaafu Atoll. Here, you’ll find everything you could ask for from a tropical paradise: sparkling azure waters, towering palm trees swaying in the light breeze, and soft, white-sand beaches. Check in to your resort of choice - we recommend the One & Only Reethi Rah or Huvafen Fushi by Per Aquum.

DAY 2: North Malé Atoll

Start the morning with a picturesque arm workout: kayaking through the surrounding crystal-clear waters. After breakfast, delve deeper into these exotic waters, literally, by taking a Discover Scuba Lesson. Replenish your energy with a tasty lunch, before heading back to Male, where you’ll explore the city on a cultural tour. Relax back at your hotel this evening.

DAY 3: North Malé Atoll

Wake up with a rejuvenating beachside yoga class. You’ll want to be sharp and wide awake for your next adventure: a sea-plane flight that will glide through the air above the Maldives’ 1,190 islands, giving you a view of the atolls like no other. The afternoon is yours to enjoy at your leisure, until it’s time to step aboard a Dolphin Cruise for sundowner drinks amidst an awe-inspiring sunset.

DAY 4: North Malé Atoll

Enjoy some time spent snorkeling this morning. You’ll have some time to relax before your next adventure: parasailing, which will give you a whole new perspective as you hang in the air behind a speedboat. You’ll no doubt be hungry after all that activity, and this afternoon you’ll learn how to prepare your own specialty lunch using fresh, local ingredients, during a cooking class with a master chef. Round the day off with an indulgent trip to the spa, before enjoying dinner and drinks by the beach.

DAY 5: North Malé Atoll

Get your day off to a great start today with a Tai Chi lesson, followed by breakfast, and a private lesson on the sea life that surrounds the islands from a resident marine biologist. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy however you like, be it beachside, poolside, or at the spa. You’ll want to look your best for tonight’s private dinner on the beach under the stars - it doesn’t get much more romantic than this!

DAY 6: Dubai

Say goodbye to the Maldives today as you transfer to Male and depart for Dubai. Once arrived, you’ll be chauffeur-driven to your ultra-luxury hotel of choice, be it the Armani Hotel, Burj Al Arab, or The Palace at One&Only Royal Mirage & Palm. Spend some time getting acquainted with your plush new surroundings. In the evening, ascend the Burj Khalifa, the tallest man-made structure in the world. Savor drinks and unbeatable panoramic views of the city at the sky-high At.mosphere restaurant, perched 442 meters above ground.

DAY 7: Dubai

Step out into Dubai’s exciting streets and explore this Arabian gem. Start your day in style aboard a helicopter, which will provide you with a whole new, bird’s-eye perspective of the city. Stroll through the narrow alleyways of the Bastakiya quarter, enjoying the eclectic mix of art galleries and cafes housed in former Persian merchant shophouses. Engage in enlightening discourse over the culture of Emiratis with locals before sharing a traditional meal. In the afternoon, head to the Dubai Museum to learn about life in the Middle East before discovery of oil. Then, as the locals do, take an abra (water taxi) across the creek to visit the gold, spice, and perfume souks. Return to the hotel to unwind with a spa treatment before dinner. Optionally, those celebrating a special occasion may wish to take an indulgent private romantic 4-course dinner cruise aboard a luxury yacht accompanied by live entertainment.

DAY 8: Dubai

Spend the morning at leisure how you please, whether relaxing at the resort, enjoying the beach and water sports, visiting the Dubai Miracle Garden, or viewing contemporary art at the local galleries. In the afternoon, be ready for an off-road adventure out in the desert. Take a ride on the sand dunes, weaving through the trackless desert and tackling high and low dunes. Take a wildlife drive thorugh the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve, and if you wish, stop by the camel farm and take a ride on the desert animal. Celebrate the end of your magical trip at a secluded camp privately set up amongst the rolling dunes just for you. Watch a bellydancing performance, indulge in aromatic shisha, get authentic henna tattoos, and have a private falconry demonstration. Enjoy a multi-course traditional Arabic dinner by the bonfire under the stars.

DAY 9: Departure

Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast before your transfer to the airport for your flight home.
