If you’re a digital nomad looking for a country in which to work remotely, then the Maldives is the place for you, and here’s more on what you should know.
Why Choose the Maldives?
The Maldives is a safe destination with a laidback atmosphere, genuinely friendly people, and plenty of experiences to enjoy when you’re not working. Furthermore, it offers a 30-day visa on arrival, and you can look to extend it once there, while many resorts will welcome long-stay guests as well. Additionally, the country has good internet connectivity too which is essential for remote working.
Staying at Private Resorts
For accommodation, an ideal choice would be a private island resort in the Maldives; villas beside the beach or over the waters of a lagoon or the sea make the perfect place to work from, and some feature pools too. To add to the convenience, you can select properties like VARU by Atmosphere that offers a premium all-inclusive plan; it covers all meals, premium alcohol, cocktails, complimentary non‐motorised water sports, unlimited snorkelling, full access to the sports & recreation centre and more!
Wellness & Water Sports
Part of the joys of remote working here is the chance to fully relax and feel rejuvenated at resort spas where you can experience Maldivian and traditional holistic healing rituals. Of course, those in search of some adventure can also look forward to underwater escapades while snorkelling or scuba diving to see colourful coral and fish. There are lots more thrilling water sports and excursions too to ensure there’s never a dull moment!
The Maldives enjoys a warm tropical climate with plenty of glorious sunshine and an average year-round temperature of around 29°C to 31°C. November to April is generally the peak season with the greatest number of sunny days though rates will tend to be higher too. That said, the off-peak season from May to October is great for travel as well and though it may rain, it won’t be for the whole day, while rates will be less as well.
