I just got back from the most amazing week-long solo trip to the Maldives. It was a dream come true to visit those beautiful islands and luxurious overwater bungalow resorts. As someone who loves solo travel, this was the perfect getaway for rest, relaxation, and indulging in tropical island bliss.

Booking My Solo Maldives Tour Package

After years of longing to go, I finally booked my solo trip to the Maldives. I used The Travel Makers, the best travel agency in Dubai, to customize and book one of their Maldives tour packages from Dubai. The travel consultants there really helped me plan out my ideal itinerary for 7 nights/8 days on two different island resorts. This gave me a mix of experiences, while optimizing my budget.

Choosing the Islands

Given that there are over 100 island resorts to pick from, the hardest part was narrowing it down! I decided on 3 nights on Embudu Village for a peaceful, laidback vibe and 4 nights at the luxury Cheval Blanc Randheli resort for total indulgence. The Travel Makers package included all my transfers by speedboat and domestic flights to get between the islands.

Arriving in Paradise

Stepping off the plane and taking my first boat ride over crystal blue waters, I was blown away by the beauty of it all. I truly had arrived in paradise! The overwater bungalows with glass floors to see fish swimming below were exactly as I had pictured. And the swaying palm trees, white sand beaches, turquoise lagoons seemed untouched by modern world.

I knew this solo trip to the Maldives would be amazing, but it exceeded all my expectations. Over my eight days split between the two islands, I had the time of my life!

Key Highlights

Here are some of my favorite moments and activities from the trip:

Embudu Village:

  • Snorkeling right from the beach to spot vibrant tropical fish, sea turtles and even baby reef sharks!
  • Experiencing a fancy candlelit dinner for one on the beach
  • Strolling the island to meet locals and witness daily Maldivian life beyond the resorts

Cheval Blanc Randheli:

Here, I indulged in total luxury.

  • Overwater spa treatment – lying on a massage table gazing down at the sea below through a glass floor has to be the ultimate relaxation! 
  • My oceanfront overwater villa had its own infinity pool and slide into the lagoon. I spent hours just swimming there with schools of fish. Truly magical!
  • Gourmet dining for one without any judgment – just excellent personalized service as I savor 5-star cuisine meals.
  • Sunrise yoga on a private sandbank in the middle of the ocean. An incredible start to the day!

The Perfect Solo Getaway 

I cannot recommend the Maldives enough to anyone wanting to treat themselves to a solo getaway. With some planning support from a travel agency near me like The Travel Makers, they customized the perfect itinerary. I could alternate between peaceful simplicity and total luxury across a few different islands.

The Maldives offer the ultimate setting to indulge, relax, renew and just enjoy your own company without any loneliness. I met welcoming locals and fellow solo travelers along the way too. After this dream solo trip to the Maldives, I’m already dreaming of when and where my next solo adventure will be! But for now, I’m still reminiscing these amazing memories.
