Leading Expert on Maldives Holidays Chooses Kindle for His Resort Guide

After 20 years of publishing guidebooks and coffee table books on the Maldives, Adrian Neville has turned to the Kindle app to distribute the fifth edition of his renowned guidebook ‘Resorts of the Maldives’.


Cork, Ireland -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/10/2014 -- Adrian Neville is almost certainly the only person in the world who has visited every single resort in the Maldives, let alone photographed and reviewed each one. And he has been doing this since 1994. His knowledge of the histories, development and comparisons between resorts is unrivaled. It’s no surprise that his ‘Resorts of the Maldives’ has become the definitive guide to choosing a Maldives holiday.

Each resort is its own island and with a holiday in the Maldives costing anything from £2,000 to £70,000 for a week, it is an expensive mistake to end up in a resort that doesn’t suit you. In an effort to best answer the simple question ‘What is the right resort for you?’ Adrian Neville gives his in-depth, independent and candidly written views on each and every resort. Along with the pros and cons and the comparisons with similar resorts, each review carries specific prices for drinks, excursions and dives, as well as an indication of its relative price and how dense the island is with rooms.

Until today this publication has only ever been available in the traditional book form.

From today, launched exclusively in Amazon bookstores around the world, holidaymakers, travel consultants and industry personnel will be able to purchase and download the 210 page full colour guide.

Taking the decision to go digital Adrian Neville said, “I made the decision to release the new edition electronically as I think we have now gone over the tipping point. For the first time electronic books are outselling paper books. For the last few years I have seen a really noticeable rise in the number of guests around the resort pools and in the lounges, bars and restaurants using their phones and tablets.

The ‘holiday read’ is now downloaded onto the kindle app at home, not purchased from the airport. At the same time, resorts are spreading their wifi across the island so guests can continue to download and follow up on whatever links take their fancy. To leverage this, we have included many links to other sources of information and comment and direct ways to book the next holiday. It’s an exciting new way of doing things and there’s no going back now.”
