A dreamy escape split between glitzy Dubai and the serene Maldivian sands, with all travel, a beach villa and seaplane transfers

With its pristine beaches, tranquil waters and romantic palms, the Maldives provides a truly indulgent idyll to lounge away your days in. Spend a week soaking up the gorgeous landscapes and slow island pace, after diving into the high-rise glamour of Dubai for an electric three nights. Clustered among the world’s most opulent real estate, this super-charged city promises a world of designer shopping, perfect beaches and supreme luxury.

Kicking off in the UAE, you’ll spend your first three nights at Sofitel Dubai Downtown. Towering gracefully amid Dubai's cloud-free skyline, this is one of Sofitel's most striking and elite hotels to date. With a blue mirrored facade reflecting the sea, this central city bolthole is a spectacle inside and out.

By day get your fashion fix at the world’s largest shopping mall, only a short (and air conditioned) walk from the hotel. Then hit the spa or a laze on a lounger by the infinity pool for some post-shopping therapy and spectacular views of the Burj Khalifa – the world’s largest building. By night, enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the hotel’s 31 Bar while you soak up the panoramic views of Dubai. When hunger strikes, take your pick from French, Thai, Arabic, Italian or Chinese cuisine.

Then, you’ll swap city for sands and head on to Filitheyo Island Resort - an authentic natural and rustic island hideaway in the south of the Maldives. You'll arrive James Bond-style by seaplane and have seven nights to explore the island's natural lush foliage and sugar-white shores. Filitheyo Island Resort is Faafu Atoll area’s only resort, so you are well and truly away from it all as you relax to the sounds of the turquoise ocean lapping the warm tropical sand.

What is a deposit?

In short, you pay Secret Escapes a non-refundable deposit to secure your holiday, then you pay the holiday supplier the remaining balance of the holiday - as advertised - at a later date (before you travel).

We've added deposit-only sales to enable our members to get early-bird access to more amazing holidays, and because we know that planning and paying for a holiday can take time.
