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.
Beach Villas bring the beach to your doorstep. These are very chic villas. They have open-air verandas and they give you direct beach access. You can also upgrade to a Family Beach Villa for more space.
Pool Beach Villas come with a private pool and sun loungers. The Pool Beach Villas are right by the beach too, so you can easily head for a dip in the Indian Ocean.
Ocean Villas give you the iconic overwater bungalow experience in the Maldives. You’ll be surrounded by the Indian Ocean. The villas come with a private outdoor deck.
This is the top luxury choice. Ocean Suites are suitably grand for a romantic trip, coming with a private plunge pool where you can stargaze at night.
