Frequently asked questions:

Is it better to get all-inclusive in the Maldives?

All the resorts in the Maldives are located on smaller islands off the capital city Male. As such everything needs to be transported to hotels and resorts via air or boat and this makes it complicated, naturally adding to the cost of any items including food at the resort. For this reason, it may be better to choose an all-inclusive option.

When should you go to the Maldives?

The best time (in terms of weather) to visit is between November and April.

How many days should I spend in the Maldives?

4 or 5 days is sufficient to enjoy a resort in the Maldives.

What should I consider when booking a trip to the Maldives?

When booking a trip to the Maldives, there are a few things you should consider such as accessibility, value add, and price.

Accessibility is important because you want to know how you will get to the resort. The options are usually via speedboat, seaplane, or a combination of both. You might want to opt for a closer resort to Male, due to the ease of accessibility especially after getting off a long haul flight.

Value add is important because you want to know what is included in your all-inclusive package. Due to the nature of the resorts having everything delivered to them via boat or seaplane, prices for everything are significantly higher than “normal”.

A package that includes meals and drinks is great because you know the cost of everything up front and can plan accordingly. Also, return transfers can cost as much as your airplane ticket to the Maldives. So packages that include transfers would compare favorably over others.

Price is important because accommodation could cost anything from $500 to $5000 per night. It is important to consider the rate per night and include taxes to get an overall costing for the duration of your trip.

Overwater villa or beach villa?

An overwater bungalow will offer you stunning views of the lagoon below and is a great option if you want to be close to the water. They are typically more expensive than beach villas.

A beach villa offers you direct access to the beach and some might have a pool. They are a great option if you want quick access to the beach and a private plunge pool.

It is possible to choose some nights in an overwater villa and the remaining nights in a beach villa.

Whichever option you choose, you won’t be disappointed.
