December - Pre-Christmas chill-out in The Maldives

For a pre-Christmas week's chill-out there's nowhere better than the Maldives - complete relaxation, with nothing more to do than read a good book or go for a swim. Each island is quite different so it's important to choose the right one for you - just ask if you're not sure!
