If you are looking for a luxury island getaway the Maldives should be at the top of your shortlist. Crystal clear waters lap up the soft, white, sandy beaches of a private island surrounded by a turquoise lagoon teaming with tropical wildlife. Throw in some luxurious accommodation (often with your own private swimming pool), fine dining, 5-star service and 8 hours of sunshine a day and you are starting to get a sense of the magnificent Maldives.
We have already seen the Maldives, Bali, Florida, Barbados and Florida in our original post about the top luxury long haul holiday destinations popular with UK holidaymakers looking for an opulent place to enjoy a week or two. Quite clearly there are a lot more than 5 luxury holiday destinations with regular departures from the UK. Whether it is the stunning beauty of St Lucia, the excitement of Dubai, or maybe a lodge where you can see some animals.
