Maldives

Now in its fourth edition, Maldives is of value to every visitor, from backpacker to billionaire. Attracting jetsetters, honeymooners and those in search of a safe, stylish and hasslefree holiday, the Maldives are changing rapidly. Expanding air links with Europe have made it the world's preferred playground and this edition includes over 20 new resorts in addition to the 90 already covered. Whether you want to visit unspoiled coral reefs on a diving safari, go big game fishing, or sip exotic cocktails before a gourmet meal, the Maldives is the place to experience a simple yet enchanting holiday.

With the publication in 1959 of Jiving To Gyp, a sequence of poems, when he was 18, Royston Ellis embarked on a writing career that has spanned more than 50 years and resulted in over 70 of his books being published in the UK, USA and in translations in French, Russian, Italian, German and Sinhala. Leaving school when he was 16 he became a rock 'n' roll poet, performing "rocketry" with Cliff Richard's group, The Shadows, with Jimmy Page and, in Liverpool in 1960, with John, Paul, George & Stuart who later became The Beatles (a name Ellis suggested instead of the spelling Beetles).
In 1961, after writing The Big Beat Scene (republished in 2010), he left England for a life of travel that took him to the Canary Islands (where he wrote The Flesh Merchants), to Dominica (where he wrote the bestselling Bondmaster series of novels as Richard Tresillian) and in 1980 to Sri Lanka where he still lives. He is the author of the Bradt guides to Sri Lanka, to Mauritius, and to Maldives, of India By Rail, and of other books about the Maldives and Sri Lanka, including the 2012 publication, The Kurumba Story. He is also the biographer of former President Gayoom of the Maldives, and the former Vice President, Ali Umar Maniku, and has written histories of Sri Lanka hotels and of The Ceylon Planters' Association.
