If you’ve decided to holiday in the Maldives then congratulations, for unforgettable experiences await! Of course, planning is key and here’s a quick guide that can help.
One Island, One Resort
The country is made up of numerous islands and each resort is on a private island! Be it at a beach, overwater or garden villa, Maldives accommodation options cater to both families and couples. What’s more, everything you need is on the resort island including water sports, dining options and spa treatments.
To get to your resort of choice you will have to take a seaplane or speedboat or a combination of the two. Properties the likes of Reethi Faru Resort have their own airport representatives at the Male International Airport which makes life easier since you will get all the assistance you need regarding the transfers.
You have the option of visiting other islands too. Excursions to inhabited islands are great to soak up some local culture. For a secluded escape, you can plan a trip to a deserted island to enjoy pure privacy with loved ones, snorkel to your heart’s content and have an intimate beachside picnic.
What to Pack
Light cotton clothing, swimwear, flip-flops, sun hats, sunscreen and sunnies are essential. You can wear bikinis at private resorts, but not at public beaches. Also, keep in mind to dress conservatively on local islands and cover bare shoulders and legs especially when heading to religious sites.
