    My New Year’s resolution?

    Stay at one – or maybe two – of these awesome Maldives resorts.

  2. Margaret Carding says:

    I’ve never dined in an underwater restaurant. The one on Niyama Private Island would be a good place to start.

  3. Ed says:

    I love the idea of arriving by speedboat. Very different from a package holiday coach transfer!

  4. Alex says:

    After all the travel doubts of the last 2 years and worrying about red lists it would be great to have a big family holiday to the Maldives. As we haven’t been anywhere I think we can blow a bit on the holiday budget this year and stay somewhere really special.
