If there could ever be a true visual of “paradise on earth”, Maldives could certainly fit the description. Home to some of the most spell-bounding sights, it is a cluster of islands that you need to visit at least once in your life. And what can be a better option than to enjoy the luxuries of a private jet while you’re visiting this beautiful country that welcomed a record 1.67 million tourists in 2019. More on this later, let’s first take a look at some of the reasons why the Maldives makes for an ideal vacation destination.
Away from the hubbub of the fast-paced city life, beaches in the Maldives are a pure depiction of relaxation and serenity. You can spend hours enjoying the mesmerizing views, spending candid moments with your loved ones or simply, unwind. The view, both early in the morning and after the sun sets, are breathtaking and heavenly, to say the least.
When you are done relaxing and want to enjoy some fun moments, there are plenty of water sports and activities you can take part in and make your trip memorable. From having an out of the world experience like swimming with the sharks to diving into the coral reef, kayaking to canoeing, jet-skiing to snorkelling, there’s a lot to enjoy in this beautiful country.
This one’s for the food lovers. Do not miss out on relishing the local cuisine, known for its unique and tantalizing taste. There are numerous restaurants and cafes; some of them also offer breathtaking views of the horizons. You can easily find both local and a range of international cuisines in these eateries.
The Maldives presents an opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. It allows you to take a much-needed and deserved break from your worldly life and stay close to nature’s captivating beauty. For an even better experience, you can also visit spas and wellness centers in the Maldives.
The country houses numerous high-end resorts that are perfect if you are seeking a serene experience with an element of luxury.
Empire Aviation’s first Luxury Partners include companies with a particular focus on the luxury resorts of the Maldives – one of the perennial favourites among private jet charter clients, offering 14 airports including five international airports and some private island resorts with their own runways.
Multi-award winning Soneva owns and operates a range of 5-star luxury resorts across the Maldives, including Soneva Fushi – properties inspired by nature and offering the ultimate in privacy. Soneva offers experiences with ‘Intelligent Luxury’ in mind – that translates to peace, time and space.
Luxury is about reconnecting with oneself and the natural environment, and so the experiences Soneva creates for guests are as far removed from the urban environment as possible. The ‘No News, No Shoes’ approach suggests a slower, more appreciative lifestyle. Spending a short time at Soneva resorts allows people to forget about life’s supposed necessities. The team wants people to recognize the energy and water we consume and take for granted and hopes to get customers involved so that they can help spread the good word.
Why not combine Soneva Fushi with a private jet charter? The Embraer Legacy 600 series was launched in 2000, and it has proved to be one of the most popular mid-size business jets ever since. The Legacy 650 is the latest in the model range, and it is the backbone of Empire’s charter fleet of business jets, with three 650s currently available for aircraft charter. It’s easy to see why this aircraft is so popular.
With its seating capacity of up to 13 passengers, the three-zone Legacy 650 has one of the largest-in-class baggage compartments, which is accessible in-flight. It can comfortably carry a larger group (along with all the baggage) on non-stop flights of five to six hours duration, perfect for a trip to the Maldives. The large cabin is comfortable and offers broadband connectivity and worldwide phone service (as well as a large washroom, fully berthing premium leather seats, an extensive galley and low cabin noise).
Here are some of the reasons why you should visit the Maldives on the Legacy 650, a lavish private jet available in Empire Aviation’s fleet:
