If you’ve chosen to spend your holiday in the Maldives, then an amazing getaway awaits! Before you go, check out these insights to help you fully enjoy your stay.
While you get accommodation on local islands to truly experience the best of the Maldives, 5 star hotels or resorts on private islands are ideal. Choose one that can easily be reached from the airport and Male via speedboat (seaplane transfers are more costly) and consider an all-inclusive plan to make full use of the dining options.
Another signature experience that’s not to be missed is to stay at an overwater villa, uniquely located over the ocean. Such options are available at resorts like Adaaran Prestige Vadoo with sunrise or sunset views; other additions include a plunge pool, a private deck for sunbathing or dining and steps or a ladder to the waters below.
Look to enjoy both snorkelling and diving in Maldives that provide encounters with countless marine species amidst colourful coral. Other water sports like parasailing, flyboarding and Seabob adventures are on offer too, while key excursions include sunset cruises, whale submarine exploration and dining on secluded sandbanks.
Laws & Regulations
The local laws are linked with the Maldives being an Islamic nation. You cannot bring alcohol or pork products into the country and on local islands, you must dress conservatively covering bare shoulders and legs; these rules, however, do not apply to private resorts where you can wear bikinis and enjoy alcohol.
