On this Dubai and Maldives holiday, you’ll indulge in luxury whilst relaxing on white sand beaches. Start in Dubai, where you can head to the top of the Burj Khalifa, shop in the Dubai Mall and head into the desert for dune-side barbecue. Then fly to the Maldives, where a week of peaceful relaxation awaits. Snorkel in crystal clear waters, eat delicious food with the sand between your toes and wander hand in hand along the beaches. If you’re looking for blissful serenity – you’ve found it.

Depart the UK from your chosen airport. On arrival in Dubai, you will be met at the airport and taken to your hotel where you’ll check in for three nights.
You have 2 full days in Dubai so why not head down to Jumeirah Beach for some relaxation or head to one of Dubai’s many world-class shopping malls for the latest designer fashion.
We’ve included a desert safari with a BBQ dinner for a completely different experience of Dubai. Head out onto the sand dunes on a land cruiser for a rollercoaster ride up and down the sand before visiting a camel farm for a short visit. Once you reach the camp you will experience a traditional Arabian welcome with coffee, tea and dates. Relax in the tent furnished with carpets and cushions or take a camel ride before enjoying a 3 course BBQ meal alongside an exotic belly dancing performance.
After breakfast, you will be driven back to the airport for your flight to the Maldives. On arrival, you’ll be met and taken by seaplane to your island paradise.
Welcome to the Maldives, a lush nation with a big heart made up of nearly 1,200 tiny islands. We’ve booked you a Deluxe Beach Villa at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, so you can run into the turquoise water for a quick snorkel before breakfast or catch a magnificent sunset from your deck.
Spend your days kayaking through the crystal-clear ocean or learning to dive on the colourful reef. In the evening, settle down for a sumptuous meal, whether you fancy a relaxing cocktail at the bar or a private candlelit dinner on the beach. This is a week in paradise – just lie back and soak it all up.
After breakfast, you’ll be taken by seaplane back to the main airport in time for your flight home. You’ll arrive back in the UK later the same day.
November to March is peak season in Dubai, with moderate temperatures meaning the opportunity to be outside, there are major festivals and sporting events on at this time and room rates will be at a premium. May to March brings hot weather, good for beach breaks and desert camping. From June to September the weather is hot and humid, hotel rates are at their lowest and it’s a great time for diving.
The Maldives catches the monsoon from Sri Lanka, meaning that the wet season lasts from May to October. The dry season runs from November to April, when prices are higher, but the sun shines all day long. The temperature is consistent all year round, generally somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius.
