Virgin Holidays' view

Discover two distinctive, stylish destinations in one holiday. A vibrant city, Dubai is ideal for a few days — absorb the unique culture and exploring exciting attractions, before you get ready to kick off your shoes and relax in the Maldives. Find a secluded spot on the beach, grab a snorkel and explore the coral reef and enjoy the chilled our vibe of the beach bar. You might not want to leave. 


Stop 1: Dubai

Dubai is home to one of the world's largest shopping malls, as well as the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. In this vibrant city of contrasts you’ll also find plenty of culture, including bustling souks selling traditional Arabian products. For something different, leave the hustle and bustle behind and head to the sand dunes on a desert safari excursion.

Your Maldives experience starts with a speedboat or seaplane transfer from Malé. When you arrive at your resort, it’s time to immerse yourself into island life.

With a choice of dining options at all of our resorts, and warm, attentive service in abundance, we're pretty sure you’ll love it here as much as we do.
