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.

About the Hotel
Landaa Giraavaru’s vast natural wilderness incorporates 103 thatched bungalows and villas of contemporary Maldivian design within a UNESCO reserve. Hidden behind traditional turquoise gates, all land-based accommodations have their own beach access, pool and lush genuinely private gardens. Beach Villas and Family Beach Villas also have a 12-metre lap pool, sand-floor living area with sofas and toes-in-the-sand dining, and sea-gazing loft. Perched on stilts over the tranquil lagoon, the Water Villas – some with pools – offer panoramic Indian Ocean views through floor to ceiling windows, spacious sundecks, outdoor showers, and nets for over-water lazing.
Food and Drink
Sample Italian specialties like veal Milanese with Sicilian caponata as you watch the sun sink below the horizon.
Enjoy savoury Arabian fare at Al Barakat, named after the historical scholar who brought Islam to the Maldives, before visiting the bar for coffee and a shisha water pipe.
Enjoy Asian specialties for any meal throughout the day in this dramatic restaurant with three thatched-roof pavilions separated by reflecting ponds.
Set directly on the sand, dine on fresh-caught seafood while gazing into the tranquil sea.
For special occasions, a unique setting can make it even more memorable. Choose from a dreamy dinner on a private sandbank, a dramatic mid-ocean dinner, a sumptuous beach barbecue, and more.
Watch lemon sharks and reef fish in the clear turquoise waters below Seabar, sip frozen margaritas and snack on tapas-style sharing plates and light bites.
Al Barakat’s Shisha Bar is open to the sea, with curtained sofas and ornate lanterns – an atmospheric setting for pre-dinner drinks or Turkish coffee and shisha pipes.
In the casual sand-floor setting of Blu Bar, enjoy exotic juices, tropical cocktails or a refreshing young coconut.
