Top 10 Stays in the Maldives

Hey guys! I'm Sarah Royall over at Salty Luxe! We quit our 9-5 jobs a few years back and started traveling to the most beautiful places in the world. Hands down one of our favorites to explore is The Maldives. It's world renowned for its incredible beauty, luxury resort stays & unique, tailored experiences. Comprising of over 1,000 palm dotted islands & seemingly endless fringing coral reefs - you feel a world away from reality. With our current international climate, this is the most brilliant feeling imaginable. 

There is no doubt, if you’re looking for an upscale, all immersive vacation, you’ve come to the right place. And if you need the perfect bracelet pack to match perfectly, find out how to win the Salty Luxe Pack at the bottom of this post! 😉 There is never a bad time to visit the Maldives. Wet season is April - November & dry season Dec – April. Both seasons bring about beauty & opportunity, depending on what you’re looking for!

‘Wet’ season will have you experiencing bucket list moments like swimming with whale sharks & manta ray, with tropical downpours making way for many hours of sunshine. Where dry season is very warm, with more stable weather overall & perfect for a dependable beach stay! So pick a date and stay at one of these 10 resorts for an experience of a life time!
