Maldivas Does Give Off the Desperate Housewives Vibe

Although Maldivas plot might seem a bit slow initially, things start getting interesting quickly. With all these characters in the plot, it wouldn’t take much for a TV show to get boring – but not Maldivas! You can’t help but wonder how these women’s stories will intertwine before they meet again. In addition to a fantastic plot, this TV show is full of celebrities: Bruna Marquezine and Manu Gavassi are just two of them, mixing drama with reality in their appearances in this hit series.


The series has a very good plot, but it’s also (sometimes) slow-paced and its dialogues lacklustre. However, the story of a woman returning from her mother’s death to solve the mystery around it makes Maldivas worth watching.

As you watch the first episode, an intriguing storyline immediately draws you in. Suspense builds up plot after plot, and with each episode, it keeps getting better and more fascinating. When you think nothing could surprise you any longer, a new mystery waits to be discovered.


Most episodes leave on a cliffhanger, and you can’t wait to watch the next one and discover what happens. And in the end, Netflix doesn’t give away too much information, which helps to keep things exciting and keeps us wanting more after we finish watching an episode.

Maldivas Series Didn’t Disappoint On Many Fronts

The plot is absurd but entertaining to watch. It’s an exciting story about female friendship, envy, how we handle adversity and our motivations for doing things. It is a peaceful and luxurious condominium in Bela Vista, one of the most expensive neighbourhoods of Rio de Janeiro and located in the beach area of Ipanema.


The building, as one might expect in this social vortex of the “Cidade Maravilhosa”, is the habitat of some very peculiar characters that, with their stories, secrets and combativeness, will provide us with plenty of adventures.

Although much of the action is set against a backdrop of white sand beaches and glistening waves, Maldivas is set against a wealthy residential community in Rio de Janeiro. The series follows the story of a 30-something young woman who has just arrived from their hometown of Goiânia to search for her mother, who left her as a child.
