Where to go next:

This week Thompsons says: It must be the Maldives

This archipelago’s hundreds of tiny islands are often called the pearls of the Indian Ocean. The Maldives are regarded by seasoned travellers and wannabes alike as the most perfect tropical paradise on Earth.

A sprinkling of the islands are host to fairytale desert-island boutique hotels, from thatched beach-front bungalows to state-of-the-art villas on stilts in the sea with open-air bathrooms and private pools.

There is, however, a dark cloud looming over this garden of Eden. With the highest point only 2m above sea level and the constant threat of melting ice caps, climate experts have warned that some of the islands could slip under the waves within 20 years.

The good news is that Thompsons Holidays has recently launched its Thompsons Maldives Specialist Collection. The collection offers the best value at expertly chosen resorts at the best locations on selected islands.
