The buzz and bling of Dubai combined with the peace of the Maldives offers 10 days of fabulous contrasts. The Arabian desert provides a playground in 4x4s and after a spree in the Dubai Mall, home to a myriad of designer labels, collapse on the pristine white sand of a Maldivian beach where Robinson Crusoe meets intelligent luxury and the desert meets the ocean.


  • The wonderful display of the Dubai Fountain which takes place every evening right outside the Address Downtown.
  • Snorkelling with turtles, Manta Ray and Whale Sharks in the Maldives' only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru.
