Tropi-Gal Getaways in the Maldives

11 August, 2020

When was the last time you had a wholesome, healthy getaway with your best girl? We know it’s been a while considering what a crazy year it’s been. But it’s about time to plan your next getaway, and there’s no better place for strong, beautiful women to unplug, and escape together than the Maldives. So, get ready to take notes – soon you’ll be packing your bags, and your best friends!

It’s a common concern for female travelers on whether a destination is relatively safe for them to explore, but thankfully, the Maldives is quite a safe destination for female travelers – even if they’re going solo!

And this isn’t just at the resorts where women can find solace in the safety and security of a private island. Female tourists can be reassured of the safety at – and are actually encouraged to travel to – local islands, where they’ll have the chance to experience local island life.

As one of the most sought-out tropical destinations in the world, the Maldives is truly a gateway to meeting all kinds of people, of all ages and backgrounds, so ladies can look forward to making new, like-minded friends in paradise.

And just as a side note for any single ladies or single moms who prefer to travel solo or with their kids, just to ease your mind, that’s what Kids Clubs are for: to entertain the kiddos while you get out there and soak up the vitamin sea you deserve.

And for the moms that need a break and some well-deserved Me Time, we’ve got you covered, too! You can try a range of relaxing and indulgent treatments at the spa.

Or relax in your villa with the page-turner you’ve been meaning to read for a while! If you’re puckish, we can always deliver to your villa.

We’ve said it before but we love to say it again: the Maldives is a great destination for anyone. Not just honeymooners, couples, and lovebirds – everyone, and if you and your sisters are thrill seekers looking for adventure, you’ll find loads to do here.

Or maybe you’d prefer to bond with your sisters in the underwater world of remarkable dive sites like Kandooma Thila alongside the Maldives’ rich marine life. No problem.

Or perhaps you and your gal pals love a healthy paddle followed by some of the best rights you’ll ever surf? That’s exactly what you can find in the Maldives.

Maybe you want to be the envy of all your friends and colleagues with amazing photos on your social media?


But don’t limit yourself to the services and activities offered at private resorts. Look into cool arrangements like yoga retreat packages, surf retreats, and dive safari boats. And if you’re not yet a seasoned diver, yogi, surfer, etc. your next question should be: How can I learn? Our answer is: Just keep reading.

Let’s take surfing as an example. Look for events like surf camps such as Pam Burridge’s Surf Camp where you can learn from and get coached by actual surfing legends. Stop and think about that for a moment – a full week of surfing with Australia’s first professional surfer girl, a trailblazer for a whole generation of surfers. In the Maldives. May as well call your girlfriends now.

And for the girls who just want to take it easy and truly unplug from the rest of the world, resorts in the Maldives offer plenty of activities just for that, like SUP yoga, aqua Zumba, cooking classes, and of course, spas – for you to level up your vacation mani-pedi.


Today women are more empowered to travel at their own whims, their own discretion, and on their own terms. Ladies, this is the era of loving, treating, and giving yourselves the experiences you want and deserve.

Take the opportunity to embrace the beauty of the planet (and the Maldives offers such a vibrant perspective of Mother Nature!) and reflect, relax, rejuvenate. Make it extra memorable by going on a sunset cruise or enjoying your favourite drink as the day melts into night in the tropics, and take the time to focus on you.

Guest Pausing by the Kandooma Beach

Now more than ever is the time of women supporting women, but it’s important for women to celebrate and have fun with women, too. That’s what girl trips are for and the Maldives offers one of the best gal getaways for you to celebrate your sisterhoods with your best girls.
