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.
Seventy-eight individual retreats are available. 28 land based Beach Oasis including three twin Beach Oasis; 25 spacious, overwater Ocean Oasis and 21 Ocean Oasis Lagoon View retreats; 3 Seascape Escapes, junior suites and one Extreme-WOW villa, the 2-bedroom Ocean Haven which comes complete with its own private swimming pool.
Each room (or retreat as they are known) features an extensive state of the art BOSE sound system, 42” plasma screen TV, CD/DVD, spacious indoor and outdoor living areas, plunge pools, barbecues for private dining, outdoor tropical
showers and day beds for lolling in the lap of luxury. Smooth, stylish interior design and all the modern gadgetry one could possibly need are an integral part of the appeal.
Food And Drink
There is an electric mix of 6 bars and restaurants at W Maldives Retreat and Spa. Kitchen, the all-day dining bistro, and Fire, where you have a choice of 4 different barbeques, provide menus for everyone’s palate. Swim up to the pool bar Wet and order a light lunch.
In the evening, at sunset you can enjoy a cocktail and nibbles at Sip, whilst next door is Fish – the signature seafood restaurant set over the water and under the star; a beautiful great way to soak in the atmosphere and perhaps see a
shooting star. There is even a dining option on your own secluded island, Gaathafushi.
If you want to let your hair down then after dark visit 15 Below, the place to see and be seen. It is known as the only true nightclub in the Maldives, with its own resident DJ and set underground.
Flirt with the adventure over the water with our adrenaline filled water sports or go underneath with DOWNUNDER, the PADI certified team of dive masters, and discover some of the best dive spots in the Maldives all within close proximity to the resort.
Alternatively, unwind, destress and switch off. Escape and be pampered at the Away Spa. Reminiscent of a dhow, a traditional Maldivian boat sporting elegant forms and vibrant sails, the spa sends you on a journey of transformation. A massage, body wrap, sunburn soother, perhaps immersions in tropical therapies or individual cleansing steam baths, the world is your oyster as you indulge.
