Halaveli Heaven: Diving, Snorkeling & Relaxing on a Five-Star Island Resort in the Maldives

Jan 9, 2014  |   Contributor: Carol Driver

Jet skiing across the bumpy waves, the spray from the Indian Ocean would’ve obscured my vision if it wasn’t for my sunglasses.

Maldives Private All-Villa Resort One&Only Reethi Rah

Oct 1, 2012  |   Contributor: JustLuxe Team  |  2 Comments

New luxury resorts have been popping up all over Maldives, perhaps due to its exotic ambiance, sought after seclusion, and tropical views that appear to be in shot in technicolor.
