How to Spend Ten Days in the Maldives

The ultimate guide to ten days in our island oasis.
The Standard, Maldives is a playfully chic, effortlessly cool resort with oh-so-white sandy beaches, sparkling waters, and stunning views, creating the perfect setting for that long-awaited tropical getaway. 

We know that many of you want to make the most of every single minute in paradise here with us; however, for those who are lucky enough to have an extended stay - thanks to our Stowaway Package - for sure, you have been itching to know what there is to see and do (well, there's just a lot!) during your holiday.

This is how 10 days spent at The Standard, Maldives could look:

Day 1
On your arrival, explore the island and take in the scenery, taking note of those postcard-perfect spots for your IG Feed goals! Then, head to the adults-only (18+) Beru Bar to watch your first Maldivian sunset before enjoying a delectable buffet dinner at Kula.
Day 2
Relax and recharge after your long journey to paradise. A pampering spa session at our overwater The Standard Spa will work wonders, allowing you to beat jet lag and get your vacation off to a great start! Truly magical.
Day 3
Discover the vibrant life beneath the surface by joining a snorkeling safari trip where you can set your sights on and swim with oceanic creatures. After the excursion, lounge by our main pool while sampling craft cocktails and tasty bites at Joos Café.
Day 4
Water babies, rejoice! With year-round warm water temperatures, the ocean surrounding The Standard, Maldives provides the perfect place if you love stand-up paddle boarding or fancy the idea of exploring our island's sparkling lagoon on a glass-bottomed kayak.
Day 5
The Maldives is an idyllic scuba diving paradise with protected reefs and abundant marine life. Go scuba diving with our Dive Center team, who will always be at your side and take the utmost care to be ecologically considerate during your adventure underwater. Keep it better down where it’s wetter.
Day 6
Send your taste buds soaring while you dip your feet in the sand and relax with a glass of champagne or two under a star-studded sky. Our culinary team will be on hand to provide you with a dining experience to remember, whether it be at BBQ Shak or on the more exclusive and romantic Baby Island. Make it extra lovey-dovey with our romance package
Day 7
Go on a sunset cruise across the vivid waters of the Indian Ocean. When lucky enough, you can see dolphins jumping in the distance and putting on a show! Then, cap off your day with refreshing drinks or boozy delights at Todis Bar.
Day 8
Join an interactive cooking class at Guduguda, our over-the-water, traditional Maldivian restaurant. Our expert chef will guide you to prepare your favorite dishes, using fresh and natural ingredients from land and sea.
Day 9
Our serene surroundings make the ideal setting to get your pose on and stretch yourself to wellness with yoga. Whether you are a complete beginner or a hard-core yogi, our classes are suitable for all ability levels.
Day 10
Conclude your holiday with another indulgence at The Standard Spa. Our suggestion this time? Our 210-minute The Spa Journey that will make you feel recharged and revitalized for months to come!
