#CreedDestinations: Maldives

Since its launch in 2007, Virgin Island Water has captured the spirit of sunny getaways and luxurious resorts. Inspired by sailing, the scent compliments relaxed vacationers lounging beachside with cocktails at the ready, making it the ideal accessory for a trip to the tropical paradise of the Maldives. The chain of twenty-six atolls stretch the warm waters of the Indian Ocean forming the Maldives archipelago. These white sand beaches are peppered with private bungalows and surrounded by clear blue waters. Here’s a guide to exploring this exotic destination.


Although the islands are in the middle of the Indian Ocean, there is food from every corner of the world. The local seafood and coconuts are two signature ingredients in Maldivian cuisine. Whether you’re enjoying a local fish curry dish or a sushi roll at a luxurious restaurant, the seafood in this topical paradise will surely make your taste buds dance.

Peruvian cuisine is on the rise, with many high-end restaurants blending traditional recipes from Peru with European and Asian touches. Enjoy a fresh ceviche with a glass of white wine as a starter, followed by a pollo a la brasa straight from the grill, and finish with a sweet suspiro de limeña for dessert.


The twenty-six atolls that form the Maldives contain thousands of islands, some inhabited by locals, some by luxury resorts, and some only by exotic wildlife. Life on the islands is calm and slow paced – no need to be monitoring time in paradise.

The Soneva Jani encompasses a collection of Water Villas and Island Sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal clear waters in the Noonu atoll. It’s the perfect home to let the time fall away as the sound of waves gently rock you to sleep. Surrounded by pristine beached and lush tropical greenery, the privacy is endless and the beauty to explore is boundless.


Dive in and experience the rich and colorful life of the Indian Ocean. In the waters of the Maldives, one can discover mantas, turtles and a plethora of exotic fish amongst coral reefs. Kayak through the crystal-clear water, feel the wind from a sailing boat or jet ski along the coast for a taster of adventure. With some of the whitest sand in the world, the Maldives are the perfect destination to soak in the sun and pristine natural landscape.
