Asia + The Middle East
Experience your very own Robinson Crusoe hideaway
The Maldives epitomise the escapist idyll: powdery white beaches, turquoise water and coral reefs teeming with sea life. Every resort is on its own private island, which means that you’re not really going to a country at all, but straight to your island hideaway. And with each having its own character and quirks, it is crucial to understand those nuances between the resorts, before working out which one is right for you.
We have spent a lot of time seeing and staying at all of the different properties in the Maldives, understanding what makes them tick and what their pluses and minuses are. This enables us to match the right island or combination of islands to your style, taste and the particular experience that you’re looking for.

We work in some of the most ecologically and culturally sensitive parts of the world, so have always been conscious of operating in a way that has a positive impact on both the environment and the people.
When you travel with us, we will make a contribution on your behalf to one of the following charities: All About the Light Foundation in Africa, ABOUTAsia Travel & Schools in Cambodia, the Alalay Foundation in Bolivia and Scott Polar Research Institute in the Polar Regions.
If clients are interested, we are always keen to get them involved in local projects and conservation efforts. Whether it be whale counting in Antarctica or rhino relocation in Kenya, you will leave knowing your actions have made a difference.
Our service includes booking and managing all your international and domestic flights. However, you can also book your own international flights if you would prefer. We can also organise private charters and private jet travel for both international and domestic flights.
We have a fantastic VIP service in place to help you navigate the airport and make your journey as smooth and easy as possible. We can collect you from your home, take you to the airport and escort you through check-in and immigration to avoid any queues, straight through to the airport lounge before boarding your flight. The same service can be put in place on your return journey.
We understand that one of the most important factors to our clients is flexibility to give you as much assurance as possible when booking your next trip. We are extremely flexible and are on hand to discuss with you the latest updates on flexibility in any one of our destinations.
We have excellent relationships with a handful of insurance companies who provide various forms of cover. Each one offers a different policy with varying terms and conditions, so we strongly recommend getting a series of quotes and discussing your personal requirements in detail with them in order to find the best one for you.
Booking and travelling with an accredited tour operator is more important than ever. cazenove+loyd is a bonded tour operator and is ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Our ATOL number is 3208. This means that the UK government guarantees all funds paid out to a bonded operator and is bound to pay in full if the bond holder is unable to deliver as contracted. This gives our clients peace of mind and full financial protection. Please see our booking conditions for further information.
We have put the relevant measures in place so that our destinations are ready to welcome you safely. In all of our destinations, sanitation and hygiene in our vehicles and the properties we work with are extensive, with cleaning protocols rigidly followed as well as other necessary safety requirements. We always arrange private vehicles and guides for our clients when travelling in a destination.
The price of our service is dependent on the intricacies of the itinerary. No two trips are the same. Our philosophy is to make every detail tailored just to you.

Stories from The Maldives
"All the arrangements meshed beautifully and we felt well-cared for and pampered from start to finish."
Our visit to Kudadoo Maldives Private Island was an incredible experience. What a relaxing and incredible time we had! Our villa and its design (the architectural wiz of the amazing Yuji Yamazaki) was utterly stunning. Everything Kudadoo provides is in the true word AAA: anything, anytime, anywhere. What a special and truly spoiling environment! A first-class experience.
I had the most unbelievable stay at Six Senses Laamu. Not only did I find it simply beautiful but also the whole feel and atmosphere in general is simply hypnotic. Our water villa was a joy to spend time in. Its layout was stunning and incredibly comfortable. The beds were amazing too, but for me, the water villa enabled me to be instantly at one with the reef and ocean. What an experience!
