Goal: Stay at 50 Private Island Resorts in the Maldives

The Maldives is one of my favourite countries in the world. I love private island resorts, and the Maldives has more than any other country. 

My goal is to stay at 50 private island resorts in the Maldives for the following reasons:

1. To experience a lot in one of my favourite countries in the world. The world’s flattest country has given me some of my best memories and I would like to experience as much as possible.
2. Many resorts are truly world class experiences and different from one another. Even the cheaper luxury resorts are truly excellent and feel special. Why not experience as many as I can?
3. The Maldives is the most popular destination on my social media accounts and my website. Why not cover more?
4. Many other reasons including, I always feel happy in the Maldives, and I would love to promote tourism in this country. Visitors can count on a memorable experience and help the country at the same time.

I have stayed at 37 private island resorts in the Maldives, two city hotels in Malé and also been onboard the luxurious Four Seasons Explorer cruise. Adaaran Select Meedhupparu has Adaaran Prestige Water Villas added as a luxury product on the island of Meedhupparu. That is why I count my number as 37. My goal, for now, is 50, but as I love the Maldives, I might reach 100 over the coming years.

STATUS: 37 OF 50 PRIVATE ISLANDS RESORTS STAYED.

Deadline: It’s my goal to complete the 50 this summer.
