Planning a vacation to the Maldives? If so, you are in for a treat! Here’s some useful information that will help in your preparation for this unforgettable getaway.
Picking the Season
The dry season, when the weather is at its best, generally runs from December to April and everything from city hotels to 5 star resorts in Maldives are on offer. However, don’t discount travelling during the monsoon period (May to October) because though it rains it’s rarely throughout the day, while rates are less too.
The Maldives is not one island but is rather made up of over 1,100 corals islands! Some of these islands are inhabited, while some are private islands each home to a resort the likes of Adaaran Prestige Water Villas. Of course, many of the islands are uninhabited and are perfect spots for a secluded escape for the day.
Do keep in mind the Maldives is a Muslim nation and follows strict laws and traditions. Bikinis are not allowed in public and neither is alcohol consumption; however, these rules don’t apply to private island resorts. Also, keep in mind to dress conservatively when visiting religious sites and refrain from public displays of affection.
Since the islands of the Maldives are spread across vast distances, seaplanes, ferries and speedboats are the commonest forms of transportation. Do check ahead how to get to your resort or island of choice and the added costs it will incur.
