Experience two completely contrasting destinations in one holiday on our Dubai and the Maldives multi-centre. Take in the bright lights and the hurried exploits of the locals within the modern metropolis of Dubai, followed by a soothing, laid back retreat to the island nation of the Maldives.

This multi-centre holiday allows you to make the most of a stop over in Dubai with a few days of exploring. Plan for a two or three day stop off here before continuing your journey to the Maldives. Indulge in the city’s fine dining, luxurious accommodation and majestic sights. Head into the gorgeous desert landscape that surrounds you and immerse yourself in the quiet beauty of the dunes. View the futuristic architecture and savour a shopping experience unlike any other at some of the world’s largest shopping centres before embarking on a scenic desert safari.

Your adventures in the UAE will soon transform into something very different when you touch down in the Maldives. Here, your holiday is about doing as little as possible and focusing on letting every bit of stress melt away. Make the most of the warm, powdery beaches, the year round sunshine and the crystal clear waters as you enjoy the luxurious facilities in your hotel.

Start your Journey

Day 1


Futuristic skyscrapers, luxurious living and bright city lights best characterise the urban borough of Dubai.

Adventurous travellers should visit the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building. The Dubai Mall is ideal for shopping, with over 100 shops on offer. Those wanting to relax should visit the Palm Jumeirah artificial archipelago for beaches and water sports. In the evenings, the boardwalk of the Palm Jumeirah is dotted with the country’s leading bars and restaurants, perfect for foodies and those wanting to explore. Finally, for an insight into Dubai’s history, a visit to the Dubai Museum is a must. It is located in the Al Fahidi Fort, the oldest building in the city.

Despite the fast pace of the city, there are also ample opportunities to connect with nature too. Venture into the dunes on a desert safari, concluding the exploit at a traditional Bedouin camp for a night of gazing at the expansive, undisturbed sky.

Day 2


Take in the miraculous beauty of the beaches of the Maldives and feel the rejuvenation of both your body and your mind.

The island nation of Maldives is home to views that will take your breath away. These views take the form of glistening, crystal waters and sandy beaches that stretch for miles. Most visitors opt to visit Maafushi island for its beautiful sands, interesting history and underwater world teeming with creatures. You also can’t go wrong with Meeru Island, Malé Atoll, and the residential, manmade island of Hulhamale.

In between lounging on the beach and soaking up the sunshine, history lovers can visit the Hukuru Miskiy mosque. It’s known for its unique coral boulder composition. The National Museum is where you will find an array of interesting artefacts, including royal antiquities which originated during the Buddhist era.
