From staying at the world’s most luxurious hotel to watching the stingrays in the Maldives to discovering the stunning views of Mallorca, we’ve rounded up some of the top experiences across the globe to add to your bucket list.
The Maldives’ pure white sand beaches, crystal clear water and year-round incredible temperatures make for postcard-perfect memories that are certain to last a lifetime. Jumeirah Vittaveli resort is located in the South Male Atoll and offers guests a wide range of activities to make their stay even more unforgettable. One such experience is seeing the stingrays. Just before sunset each day at Jumeirah Vittaveli upto 100 stingrays make their way to the resort’s Maadi Point beach. Such a phenomenon is unusual, given that that rays usually spend their days away from the lagoon in the deep sea and are not seen around the reef, making the entire spectacle even more special.
