11 day sample itinerary

Dubai and The Maldives Multi Centre

Desert metropolis combined with island paradise

Take the chance to visit two of the world's most popular luxury destinations on one unforgettable holiday. Dubai is perfect as a stopover before you continue your journey to some far flung destination, and ideally we recommend staying at least three nights so you can see and experience much more. What better way to make the most of your holiday time than to spend a few days topping up your suitcase with purchases made in the state of the art malls, visiting Burj Khalifa;the tallest building in the world or escaping to the desert for an exhilarating 4x4 dune bashing safari. Follow that with the ultimate in glamorous getaways on a Maldives holiday where you can indulge in a slice of paradise, relax and soak up the sun. What better way to show off those new purchases you made in Dubai?Your experience will start with a seaplane journey over the atolls or boat trip where you can spot pods of dolphins and distant islands. The diving sites are incredible and your private island resort will satisfy your craving for peace and privacy.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Stay at the most iconic hotels in Dubai
  • An easy stopover destination only four hours flight from Maldives
  • ​The perfect beach and city combination
  • Great opportunity to do some shopping before heading to the beach
