Where better to escape the Olympics than an idyllic island retreat in the Maldives? Olhuveli Beach & Spa Resort has its very own time zone, an hour ahead of the capital Malé, making sure guests truly ‘get away from it all’ and have more opportunity to enjoy the day sunbathing on its award-winning beach, swimming or snorkelling the crystal clear lagoon and sipping cocktails at sunset.
Another reason to escape to Olhuveli is that it has one of the only registered kite-surfing schools in the Maldives and kite-surfing is going to be a new sport added for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. So don’t watch the Olympics, start practising now and you could be participating in the next one!
