New Art Gallery Opens In The Maldives
Those travelling to the beautiful Maldives for a holiday will be spoiled with stunning white beaches and warm, tropical waters. Many of the resorts on the island offer five-star accommodation with the opportunity for a completely relaxing and pampered stay. It is no surprise, therefore, that the Maldives is on the top of many people’s wish-lists when it comes to holiday destinations. With all that the Maldives has to offer, it hardly needs anything else to attract visitors to its shores. But a unique art gallery has just opened – and the only way to access it is by seaplane or speedboat.
This exclusive art gallery is the first in the world to be accessible only by boat or seaplane, and those lucky enough to visit will be greeted with a cocktail before being shown through to the gallery and given the opportunity to view the many stunning prints that are only available in the Maldives. Per Aquum gallery is located on Huvafen Fushi island, and the first exhibition is truly remarkable. Photographer Paul Reiffer said of the exhibition, “We've done it in part because it's quirky. If you look at it from a commercial view, it's a stupid idea but we wanted to do something a bit different and it completely works. There's never really been an opportunity to exhibit my work because getting staff and equipment to the Maldives is a pain. It's not a high pressure sales gallery, it's about people seeing my art and the exhibition itself.”
The exhibition is split into two parts, with one showing Mr Reiffer’s photographs of the beautiful Maldivian scenery and the other showcasing a number of cityscape scenes shot during his travels around the world. Reiffer said that those who live in the Maldives tended to prefer his cityscapes while tourists prefer his shots of the Maldives.
Holidays in the Maldives
The Per Aquum gallery is just another great reason to visit the stunning Maldives. For so long, this tropical destination had been something reserved for the rich and famous, but the great news is that it is now accessible to everyone.
All-inclusive holidays to Indian Ocean destinations are available for everyone, and they are popular with honeymooning couples, families, and groups. This beautiful part of the world really does have something to offer to everyone, regardless of their age.
When it comes to Maldives luxury holidays, many top resorts around the islands offer fine dining, beautiful surroundings and plenty of land- and water-based activities. A lot of the top resorts cater to children, making them ideal for family holidays. With dedicated kids’ clubs, children’s menus and babysitting services, these resorts ensure that both children and their parents can enjoy the holiday.
