At Purple Roofs, we list thousands of gay and lesbian owned and friendly accommodations around the world - bed and breakfasts, vacation rentals, hotels, guest houses, and much more. We also list hundreds of gay and lesbian friendly travel agents and tour operators.
Unlike many other travel directories, Purple Roofs is not a simple repackaging of mainstream hotel chains for the gay and lesbian market (though we do have a couple of the gay-friendliest) - instead, we offer thousands of locally owned accommodations that you won't find in one place anywhere else.
This is our Maldives Gay Travel section - here, you'll find Maldives gay friendly and lesbian and gay owned bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels, vacation rentals, and other accommodations.

Nika Island - Nika Tour
The resort is exclusively designed by an Italian architect to be the only resort in the Maldives with full privacy for its clientele; each villa is designed with separate Living room, Bedroom, Bathroom and a Private beach. The island is surrounded by a wonderful house reef just a few meters from the beach for those who love to discover the underwater world . The Resort is named after the majestic banyan tree called “Nika” in Dhivehi the local language. The giant tree which shoots down its roots into the Nika soil to support its growing weight is home to many types of birds and fruit bats. This tree is believed to be about 355 years old or more. The constant care and effort of our gardeners keeping the vegetation of island healthier and well maintained, allows keeping the temperature of the atmosphere cooler than any other island in the Maldives.
