If you’re planning a trip to the Maldives, here are some key insights that you should keep in mind which will help make your getaway truly unforgettable.
Choose the Right Resort
Take time to select the right resort island for your stay and keep in mind that those closer to Male and the international airport will offer speedboat transfers that will cost less too. Since most of your dining will be at the resort, check if it offers meal plans too along with key experiences that make for memorable holidays. Ideal options include Baros Maldives which also features a dedicated 24-hour villa host, destination dining, holistic spa rituals, water sports, excursions and more.
Stay At a Pool Villa
On your holiday, look to indulge in a stay at resorts in Maldives with private pool options at its villas; you do deserve to treat yourself and your loved ones after all! Select a property that offers the choice of overwater and beach pool villas, the former providing direct access to a tranquil lagoon below and the latter, to soft sandy shores. You can laze in the pool, work on your tan on a sundeck or enjoy modern comforts and laidback island bliss.
Try Snorkelling & Diving
In the Maldives, snorkelling and diving are your gateways to the magical world that lies beneath the waves with a chance to see colourful coral and denizens of the deep! Stay at a resort in the North Male Atoll that has a thriving nearby house reef and a PADI Five-Star Gold Palm Dive Centre that offers training, certification, and underwater excursions even at night. Be it reef fish, harmless sharks, manta rays, turtles, moray eels or even shipwrecks, there’s plenty to discover.
Consider the Off-Season
Travel during the peak season in the Maldives, from November to April, means you can enjoy lots of sunshine and calm seas; however, if you can’t visit during this time or the rates are too high, don’t fret, there’s an alternative! Don’t discount planning a holiday here in the off-season from May to October; while it may rain, this usually won’t be for the whole day so you can still experience sunshine and adventures. What’s more, the rates and airfare will be relatively less as well.
