Enjoy Over-The-Top Luxury at These Dreamy Maldives Resort

Sometimes the best things come in small packages. With just 120 square miles of sandy shores in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is among the smallest countries in the world but one of the most desirable travel destinations. 

Despite its size, it’s home to more than 150 resorts, including some of the most over-the-top and luxurious resorts on the planet.
