3 nights Dubai - 7 nights Maldives

  • Maldives

Virgin Holidays' view

These contrasting destinations make for an exciting getaway. Dubai has so much to offer and is home to iconic attractions. Discover the city's fine dining restaurants and vibrant nightlife, soak up the culture or perhaps try indoor skiing or venture out on a desert safari. After a few days exploring, head for the more laid-back atmosphere of the Maldives. You can slow things down by relaxing on the beach, snorkel with the fishes or maybe visit the whale sharks. It's time to relax in paradise.

Itinerary

Stop 1: Dubai

Start your holiday with a few days in Dubai. You can go shopping in one of the world's largest shopping malls or the souks. Be adventurous and experience the desert on a desert safari excursion. Visit the Burj Khalfia, the world’s tallest building, and see the fountain show.

Day 1: Flight to Dubai

Fly daily from London Gatwick with Emirates.

Days 14: Enjoy Dubai

Check into your hotel, then hit the Emirates Mall for some shopping or enjoy a trip along the creek on an abra (a traditional wooden boat), then stopping off at the souks to soak up the Middle Eastern atmosphere. If you're into theme parks then a trip to Dubai Parks and Resorts, located on Sheikh Zayed road, is a must! Middle East’s largest integrated leisure and theme park destination is home to three theme parks: MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, Bollywood Parks™ Dubai and LEGOLAND Dubai, and one water park: LEGOLAND Water Park, meaning there will be guaranteed fun for everyone.

Day 4:

Fly on to the Maldives with Emirates.

Stop 2: Maldives

You've arrived in the Maldives. These picture perfect islands really are as beautiful in real life as in the photographs! With white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and gently swaying palms you will soon relax into the pace of island life.

Days 411: Enjoy Maldives

Your Maldives experience starts with a speedboat or seaplane transfer from Malé. Upon arrival, you’ll get a true insight into island living, with stunning beaches and a choice of activities, both on land and in the water. Colourful marine life and plenty of underwater sites mean that the snorkelling and diving here is nothing short of spectacular. A special occasion? Upgrade to a secluded water villa (some have private pools) and you can take a dip straight from your private deck. With luxury spas at many of our resorts, delectable cuisine and warm hospitality, there’s a good chance that you won't want to leave.

Day 11: Fly home

Fly home via Dubai with Emirates.

Thank you for your patience and understanding


We’re sorry to say that it’s taking much longer than usual to process your refund. It’s taking longer than we’d like as well. This is due to the number of requests being sent to us and our teams working from home.

We’re doing our best to help every customer, but we’re not able to always meet the 15, 45 or 90-day timeframes we originally stated for every customer. As always, we’re grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding. It means the world to us.

We'll be in touch soon


We’re keen to help you rearrange your holiday plans and our team are currently working through requests in order of departure. We’re helping those customers in June at the moment so please bear with us, someone will call you back.
