JetSet Destinations: Maldives

When you daydream of a beach holiday do you see yourself lounging on a white sand beach, enjoying a sunny day looking out to crystal clear lagoons while sipping on a mojito?  Relaxing to the sound of the waves and the perfect breeze in the palm trees?  Snorkeling through stretches of unspoiled reefs and seeing the an abundance of marine life?

All this and more awaits you in the Maldives… located in the Indian Ocean 300 miles south of India.  With over 1,000 small coral islands among 26 atolls, these resorts offer seclusion, privacy, stunning ocean views and the most luxurious overwater villas in the World!  With World-class snorkeling and scuba diving this truly makes the Maldives a unique beach destination.

Many of the luxury resorts offer unique concepts including over and underwater dining, underground wine cellars, underwater spa treatment rooms and more.  One of the top luxury resorts is the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadhaa.

The Park Hyatt is known specifically for their incredible marine life. Located in the southern portion of the Maldives, just miles from the Equator on the North Huvadhoo Atoll, the Park Hyatt is on an atoll, which is believed to be the largest and deepest natural atolls in the world.  The marine life here is more abundant and varied than anywhere else in the Maldives making it very special.  The island is small enough to walk around in about 20 minutes and each of the 50 villas offer their own luxurious setting either on the beach or overwater.

JetSet Destinations: Bhutan

Bhutan, a remote Himalayan Kingdom where collective success is measured by “Gross National Happiness”, offers a journey like no other. Amankora, a collection of five lodges each in a distinct and significant location, facilitates the discovery by providing each guest a dedicated guide, private driver, and highly personalized itinerary.

Whether climbing ancient mountain trails to arrive at a secluded Buddhist monastery; traversing lush valleys in search of the black necked crane who migrates across the soaring mountain peaks from Tibet; soaking in a traditional wooden hot stone bath stoked with steaming rocks and medicinal herbs; or savoring a Bhutanese chili flavored feast in a candlelit Potato shed; one is afforded the time and space for reflection and introspection.  The captivating natural beauty and purity of the landscape, people, and culture result in a transformative life experience and a deeply personal spiritual awakening.

A visit to the Land of the Thunder Dragon should sit at the top of life’s bucket list.
