Is it time you took a well-deserved break? The Maldives is the perfect place to get away from it all and here’s a quick guide to help you plan this long-awaited holiday!
For a crowd-free vacay, nothing beats staying at a resort on its own private island which is what you can do here! While you get family-friendly options, for more romance, consider properties like Anantara Veli Maldives Resort only for adults. Pro tip: book through official resort websites for exclusive offers, benefits and packages.
What’s in Store
For resort accommodation in the Maldives, over water bungalow options are ideal especially if you haven’t experienced it; built over a lagoon, they offer direct access to the water below for swimming or snorkelling! You will also find all you need on the island itself be it dining venues, spa treatments, wellness programmes or fun activities.
Things to Do
Snorkelling and diving are not to be missed; some resorts offer special experiences too like snorkelling with whale sharks and manta rays. Wakeboarding, kayaking, parasailing and flyboarding are amongst the many other water sports on offer. You can also enjoy sunset cruises, dolphin watching, Maldivian cooking classes and movies beneath the stars!
Keep in Mind
After you land, island resort transfers are by speedboat or seaplane; consider staying at a property in the South Male Atoll for quick speedboat transfers that cost relatively less too. Also keep in mind that since this is a Muslim nation, on local islands, you can’t consume alcohol or wear revealing clothing; this does not apply however to private resorts.
