TRIP OF A LIFETIME
ALL-INCLUSIVE. 5-STAR ADVENTURE.
Trips of a Lifetime Series: Maldives 2023
The pandemic taught us that life is short. People have regrets. Go out. Create memories. It’s time.
We’ll take you to the exact spot in the picture above. If you missed the 2022 edition, come with us in April 2023, stay in a 5-star resort all-inclusive and check off one of the lifelong bucket list trips. We provide the COVID-19 travel insurance, too. Oh, and not just that – we will throw in some other cool stuff as well, like a dinner in an underwater restaurant and ride in seaplane across the country.
Plus: meet and be inspired by 10 other travelers, uniquely selected for this adventure, to make friends for a lifetime and be part of an exclusive group – The Spark Society – that’s forming a tradition of going on further adventures and trips of a lifetime together.
Dates: April 12-20, 2023. Other dates may be available, see the form.
INSPIRATION. REJUVENATION. SELF-LOVE.
After setting up exclusive trips to Italy, Brazil, Thailand, Transylvania or Argentina & Uruguay, we are opening an invitation for 10 people to come with us to the Maldives, in 2023. 9 days. 8 nights. 10 amazing, interesting people. 1 Life-changing experience. Exclusive group. Spark all your senses.
1. We'll Stay Here - All-Inclusive Style
We will stay in a 5-star resort – see image above – on an all-inclusive plan! The regular price for these water villas is +$1,000US/night.
2. Seaplane Ride Over The Maldives
Experience a flight over the country. We will take off AND land on water. Bucket list! The regular price is $500/person. You fee is included.
3. Have Dinner In This Famous Underwater Restaurant
Another bucket list item? YES. Try this by yourself when you go to the Maldives and pay $280US at the door. Your entry fee/dinner is included with us. You’ll be taking a picture right in this spot, where the couple in the image above is.
4. Visit a Local Culture - Immerse in The Culture
We will visit a local island so that you can see how the natives live. You might be surprised. It will be a good day.
5. Water Sports
This will be a very relaxing vacation, so stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and all the non-motorized sports are included in the price. Trip of a lifetime.
6. Snorkel Magic
See some amazing marine life besides what you witness at the underwater restaurant. We will be in the right place for that.
7. Local Transportation Between Locations
Have you ever heard the saying “You don’t know what you don’t know”? Those who want to take on Maldives by themselves don’t know about many hidden yet mandatory hefty charges (up to 1k) for domestic transportation – e.g., boats and planes for in-between islands, activities, etc. We take care of everything.
8. Exclusive Group
All participants are carefully selected prior to the trip, so you will be in a great, quality company.
9. COVID-19 Insurance
We’re proud to offer every single one of our guests COVID-19 insurance. Also, we’ll pay for the PCR test on the way back, if your country requires negative tests to re-enter. All the advice and news about the local rules and regulations will be provided. We’ve got this!
DEADLINE FOR EARLY BIRD PRICE
WHO THIS IS FOR
✓ 9-5’ers or someone who’s been working long hours and wants to detach from daily reality.
✓ Mid-life crisis individuals who don’t want to have regrets.
✓ Someone who is looking for a nice mix of culture and rustic adventure.
✓ Individuals who want to recharge their life and press the reset button.
✓ Someone who wants to surprise his/her partner with an incredible birthday or anniversary gift (maybe even a wedding proposal – we’ll get it on camera, too). Whether you’re looking for 40th birthday trip ideas (or 50th, even 60th), you’ll Spark. The Maldives vacation packages should be special, and this takes the top.
✓ Ladies who are searching for perfect mother-daughter trips.
✓ Someone who is coming out of a relationship and wants to experience things they feel they’ve been missing out on and celebrate being single. Essentially, someone who is looking for things to do after divorce or separation. We are known as one of the best remedies.
✓ Freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to spark their business spirit with sun and ocean, and meet some partners in crime who may become creative collaborators, or just inspire a brilliant idea over cocktails.
✓ Someone who has had a list of bucket list trips but ALWAYS found reasons not to start checking them off.
WHAT THIS TRIP IS NOT
✗ A trip where international flights are also included. Your flights to the Maldives are your responsibility.
✗ A mastermind conference or MLM business. #HateThatS%*t
✗ One drama-queen friendly zone. Leave your problems at home.
✗ Similar to the other regular Maldives vacation packages. This trip is not listed on platforms like TripAdvisor or GetYourGuide. We screen all the participants.
✗ A big group of people where you get lost in the shuffle.
✗ Your average trip.
If you’re looking for a Spark Experience that is more cultural and involves exploring check out any of the following editions:
Thailand Bucket Lists (Wow theme)
Argentina & Uruguay (Wine & Tango theme)
Visit Transylvania (Dracula theme)
Tuscany Vacation Packages (Dream theme)
Amazon Jungle Tours (Goosebumps theme)
Visit Cartagena, Colombia (Mystery theme)
OH, WAIT! YOU WILL ALSO BE HERE (See below)
We will also take you on a sand bank escape, in the middle of the ocean. Prepare to be blown away. Bucket list items for bucket list trips. Cheap Maldives packages will not give you this option. With us, your fee is included. Here is a video:
What else makes this trip one of the best Maldives vacation packages?
What else makes this trip different than the other Maldives vacation packages? The people. Here is one of the last Spark cohorts in countryside Italy, at a 1696 Tuscan villa.
WHO ARE THE 10 SELECTED APPLICANTS?
Similar to the Spark Experience participants who join the Italy, Brazil, Transylvania, Argentina & Uruguay or Colombia trips, we are carefully selecting the people that will be coming to the Maldives. Hence the application form at the bottom of this page. We’ll tell you why.
The people you meet represent the most meaningful part of a travel experience, especially if you want to turn it into one of those trips of a lifetime. Do you know how in a group sometimes there’s someone who the rest refers to as: ‘that guy’ or ‘that chick’? That’s not going to happen here. After phone interviews, researching social media profiles, and getting references, we’ll put together our travel dream team. You’ll be with people who have life stories to tell and knowledge to share.
We want all 10 people who come with us to leave as best friends at the end of the Maldivian adventure. The Spark Experience really offers life-changing trips. The idea is to keep in touch forever, become an exclusive community over time, and go on other memorable, bucket list trips together.
Here is the kicker: you won’t know who the other travel partners are until a week before the trip!

COVID-19 CONTEXT & CANCELLATION
We are proud to provide COVID-19 insurance to all our guests during this trip. We’ll take care of the paperwork too, so you don’t have to.
The Maldives doesn’t require you to quarantine upon arrival, but a simple PCR negative test. The test must be taken no more than 96 hours before the scheduled time of departure.
If your country still requires a test when you return, we will also facilitate that in the Maldives and cover its cost.
Your trip could be canceled by you before April 10, 2023 and refunded by us IF your country of residence requires mandatory-paid hotel quarantine (not home quarantine) during April 2023. Fair enough?
HAVE YOU MET YOUR HOST? HERE IS WHY YOU SHOULD TRAVEL WITH HIM
Your main host will be Sorin Mihailovici, the producer of the Travel by Dart series. One of the best things that happened to him was when he left from his TV job at a desk. It challenged his entrepreneurial spirit.
Sorin’s breakthrough came after a trip to South Africa that he initially didn’t want to take because he wanted “to wait until he makes more money”. However, his best friend pushed him to go. Although Sorin spent more money than he anticipated, the African getaway changed his life. It made him realize that life experiences are far more intrinsically valuable than things, it revitalized his mind, sparked his imagination, and inspired him to create the venture that ended up being his bread and butter today. You’re just about to be part of it.
More InspirationIf you’re looking for a creative spark, Sorin is an entrepreneur who has been a TV producer, made the State’s “most wanted” list in Romania, acted in movies and commercials, worked as a TV producer and created his own series, Travel by Dart. Sorin is also the founder of the mega-popular Scam Detector, a platform that exposes the world’s most notorious scams, so traveling safe is his priority. Sorin has been featured on Forbes, ABC, BBC, CBS, FOX, Global, and CTV. We really hope to meet you in the Maldives for an event that doesn’t compare to the other regular Maldives vacation packages. So come with us, and let’s make some real magic together. We are not a travel agency. We are a lifestyle agency.
THE TEAM CAPTAIN
The reason you’re reading this page. 60 countries visited. Over 400 flights taken worldwide. Read more above.
THE ISLAND CHIEF
Mariam is quick silver. She does a million things and she does them well when it comes to life changing trips. A lot of it is for Spark.
One of the main reasons we set up everything in the Maldives successfully. Resourceful, smart, helpful.
THIS IS WHY YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT
To put everything into perspective: if you always wanted to go to the Maldives and stay in a dreamy water villa or a bungalow all-inclusive, here is what you would pay if you would book it yourself:
- Water villa cost: between $800-$1,600US/night. Even with the lowest fee, 8 nights (x$800) cost $6,400US.
- Underwater restaurant dinner: $280US/person (fee to get in).
- Seaplane ride: $500US/person.
- Activities (sandbank, local island trip, water sports, etc): $300US/person.
That’s a total of $7,480US – IF you book it yourself. Not here. If you really want to take Maldives off your bucket list trips, you’d be silly not to enter your name below now.
