Welcome to paradise. Welcome to the Maldives

Making memories under the Maldivian sky at the beautiful Club Med Kani & Finolhu resorts.

From the moment you set foot on Male, you know.

This is paradise.

The clear blue water, white coral sand beaches and a constant temperature of around 28 degrees makes this place the closest thing to heaven. We were picked up by a speedboat and brought first to the Club Med island of Kani where we got the perfect welcome and were guided around, showing us the different restaurants, beaches and the endless recreational opportunities.

Our second visit was to Club Med Finolhu, a small neighbour island offering exquisitely designed villas positioned overwater in a more quiet, romantic setting. Also known as the world’s first 5-start resort to be completely powered by the sun.
It was exactly what I wished for.

The perfect set up for a week of total relaxation.

We only stayed 7 nights
but will remember these islands for the rest of our lives.

From 'le chef de village' Merlin, over Bepari serving our drinks to captain Rayan who always made sure we had the best table and service during dinner, the Club Med team really stood out in terms of hospitality and customer care.
Thanks especially to the lovely Francia, for whom nothing was too much to ask.

Genuine friendly people who want you to have the best time.

We ate langoustines for lunch that were captured in the morning.

You’re in the midst of the Indian Ocean so it’s kinda logic that fresh fish & sea food are on the menu each and everyday.
But don’t worry if you’re a carnivore or want a to eat a pizza, ‘cause Club Med provides a huge buffet with a large choice of freshly made food.


Romantic beach dinners under the Maldivian stars...

As I said before, this is paradise.
It’s like everything is photoshopped.
The environment leaves you breathless.

Although Club Med is known for its animation, certainly on Kani island they provide a full program of entertainment, it’s perfectly possible to avoid the fuzz and just enjoy the sunset while having a tete-a-tete with your partner.

At Finolhu, total relaxtion & calmness reigns.

Spend your time on the beach but don’t forget to explore the magical beauty the Maldives have to offer.

At Club Med Finolhu you feel like Robinson Crusoe washed ashore of a luxury island.

A private, intimate and utter romantic place ideal for couples who want to enjoy the view and each other.
All villas feature Maldivian architecture with modern interiors, a private outdoor pool and of course stunning vistas.

The resort is fully powered by solar and therefore an eco-lover's paradise.

This trip was one of our best vacations yet.
Memories made!
