The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.

Named for the ruggedly beautiful mountain range that towers behind it, The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa is characterised by clean-lined design and luxury. Situated on the Atlantic Ocean where the sea meets the sky, the hotel, with its brilliant white façade, is used by sailors as a nautical navigation point. Cape Town lies just fifteen minutes away by complimentary shuttle, and outdoor activities include walks and picnics in Table Mountain Park, helicopter tours and whale watching. Equally tempting is a salt-glow rub or a pine-and-rosemary-infused body wrap in the Sanctuary Spa. Enjoy a sundowner on the terrace at sunset before dinner at the award-winning Azure, and drift off to the sounds of the ocean in an airy room done in contemporary Cape style with all the classic European comforts.
