Maldives among the Top 50 Best Countries to Travel in 2022

After two years of border closures, cancellations, and travel restrictions, 2022 is the year many people are hoping to get back out there and return to their favorite destinations. Planning a new adventure is always a thrill, but finding the best places to visit in 2022 can be a hassle.

Though the hospitality industry was hit hard by the pandemic, many properties used the forced downtime to renovate rooms, add new amenities, and expand outdoor spaces to offer even more once guests return. 2022 is when many travelers will venture further from home, and even overseas, for the first time since the start of the pandemic, finally reaping the benefits of these valiant efforts.


Maldives is among one of the top countries that utilized their down time during the COVID-19 pandemic to renovate and rebrand. Now, the Maldives is open for tourists and is doing better than ever. Maldives has over 166 accommodations catering to all sorts of travelers.

The new debuts of 2022 includes the new Joali Being nature retreat, which leads guests on a transformative wellness journey. Alila Kothaifaru Maldives debuts in February with 80 beach and overwater villas on the Raa Atoll. Coming to the same atoll in May, also with 80 luxury villas, is Emerald Faarufushi Resort & Spa on a massive lagoon primed for snorkeling.

Along with Soneva Jani, they’ve debuted Soneva Soul, a new spa complex melding ancient and modern techniques. Other vacation favorites are unveiling new digs like the sleek, contemporary renovation of Naladhu Private Island and the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, debuting in February.
