Despite having problematic laws concerning LGBTQ+ rights, the Maldives is one of Out Of Office’s most popular destinations. Due to the geography of the Maldives, each island is essentially run by the resort that occupies it. We work with an incredible selection of resorts, many of which have LGBTQ+ management, that are welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community.


The Oceanview Pool Villa has a nautilus shell shaped ceiling, glass doors and a teakwood four-poster bed. Your private walled garden is full of greenery, it boasts direct Indian Ocean views and it has its own pool. It’s just a short walk to the beach.
