Escape and relax in the Maldives
With winter firmly on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about leaving the cold and the wet behind to escape to a desert island paradise. Getting away from it all is just the tonic we all need right now and the Maldives offer exactly that. The picturesque tiny island of Raa Atoll is home to the luxury Heritance Aarah resort, the perfect place to leave the worries of the world behind.
The island is 40 minutes by seaplane away from Male airport and its white sand beaches are surrounded by nothing but the bright blue ocean. You'll enjoy seven nights premium all-inclusive at Heritance Aarah with all your meals taken care of. At the hotel, you'll find everything you and your family need to enjoy a wonderful escape - from pools, kids club, recreation centre, teen activity room and daily entertainment.
With a wealth of dining options to choose from - from Ralu's French and Italian cuisine to Ginifati's seafood menu and Ambula's contemporary Sri Lankan and Maldivian food - and attentive service, you're certain to return home feeling well looked after.
Your luxury resort
Nestled in the Raa Atoll, just 153km away from Male International Airport, Heritance Aarah is the ultimate in serene and secluded relaxation. The Medi Spa's rooms are all set over the lagoon offering luxurious health and beauty treatments as well as yoga by the sea. The food and drink is excellent, with the Ralu Lounge Bar specialising in rum and rum cocktails and you'll find luxury L'Occitane products in your room.
With this exclusive offer, readers will enjoy a number of wonderful added benefits. Depending on the weather and availability, you'll enjoy three free excursions, such as a sunset or sunrise cruise, a local island visit or a search for dolphins. Snorkeling, windsurfing, canoeing are all included, while jetskis and waterskiing are available at a supplement. You'll also enjoy a 30-minute massage for two people at the spa and an introductory scuba-diving session.
Your free room upgrade
Readers will enjoy a free room upgrade to one of the 56 Ocean Villas with a private sun deck. Or you can opt for one of the five Family Beach Villas, which have direct access to the sands, Jacuzzi and outdoor shower. And as if looking out over the azure waters from the comfort of your room isn't enough, you'll also enjoy complimentary butler service throughout your stay.
