Luxury Gay Holidays in The Maldives

The Maldives is a dream destination for many, and for good reason. With some of the most stunning resorts in the world, friendly locals, a relaxed atmosphere, and plenty of drinks to go around, it's no wonder that a holiday to this island paradise is on so many people's bucket lists. A luxury gay holiday to the Maldives is made simple when you book with Out Of Office, despite the country's official laws.

We recommend

Despite its reputation as a tropical paradise, the Maldives has a dark side when it comes to LGBTQ+ rights. Under Sharia Law, which is enforced on the hundreds of islands that make up the Maldives, being gay or lesbian is a criminal offense punishable by up to eight years in prison and 100 lashes. It's a shocking reality that many travellers may not be aware of.

Despite this, the Maldives is a popular destination for LGBTQ+ travellers looking for a relaxing and romantic gay holiday. Although public displays of affection are not advisable in Male, resorts offer private accommodations and secluded areas where couples can enjoy intimacy and romance. With private pools, overwater bungalows, and pristine beaches, LGBTQ+ travellers can celebrate their love in a breathtaking setting without fear of discrimination. However, it's important to note that same-sex marriage is not currently legal in the Maldives.

Many resorts have a welcoming attitude towards same-sex couples and alcohol is readily available. Out Of Office have seen an increase in the number of gay couples enjoying a gay Maldives holiday each year, yet as with any destination, it's important to do your research and make informed decisions before traveling.

At Out Of Office, we specialise in combining inclusive service with exclusive travel experiences, but you can find non-LGBTQ+ specific information on travel in the Maldives by visiting our Maldives destination page.
