I am planning a honeymoon trip with the wife and we booked a 2 night stay in maldives. We are flying from bangkok on the 2nd of Jan 2017 but there is only one flight and it's costing $588cad / $448usd!
There is only one flight so we are kind of forced to go this route but...should we wait for more airlines to offer flights? This is supposed to be in the middle of high season so I'm not sure if I should take the gamble and wait for more flights because the fare is every week!
I want to travel from Dhiffushi to Male on Thursday 3 Nov.
Ferry schedule says departure 6.30 on Thursdays but 3 Nov is a public Holiday (Victory day) ....
Would there be a ferry on this day ?
What are the alternatives and at which price ? I need to be back in Male on Friday by the latest.
All tips welcome.
would appreciate views as to which is better as trying to decide between these two resorts for a five night stay. If anyone has stayed in both of these resorts .
Mostly interested in enjoying the scenery,relaxing, the pool , and maybe some snorkeling.
I finish a weeks boat cruise at Male Boat Pier and then flying out the next afternoon from the airport. Looking for a decent hotel suggestion. Fair few coming up upon searching. How late can I get to Hulhale/ is it worth my while going over for such a short time or get one on Male island?
So excited, in a few days I will spend a week on the island Dharavandhoo! Has anyone been there? Does anyone know if we can lay on the beach in our bikini? What about swimming? Do I need to cover up completely while being in the water? I'm prepared to cover up though. But I was just wondering.
And we have planned several boat trips including snorkeling. Do I still need to cover up on these trips: long pants and t-shirts? I've seen pics with people just laying on the beach but I am…
I am about to book a 7-day honeymoon at one of the many resorts in the Maledives.
My feeling says that there is not much on these islands than that one resort and therefore it might be most convenient to book All Inclusive (no other choises anyway for eating and drinking).
Point is that All Inclusive makes it immensly expensive!
Are the drinks expensive in these resorts? Could full board be a better option?
What can you advise? Breakfast only / Half board / Full board / All inclusive.
Anyone would be in Maldives between those dates? I'm planning to do an Asian Trip but not sure yet which places to go. But I'm pretty sure I will be in Maldives and SIngapore. I'm planning to include Malaysia and maybe Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
I hope this is not off topic. What happens if they find some coral (or shells) in your luggage at Male airport? I found a small hearth shaped dead coral on the beach and wondered whether I could be able to bring it home.
Does anybody have experience with this?
Planing a 6 month career break. First stop Sri Lanka...... Start in September and going to be leaving Sri Lanka after 30 days. As its so close would love to go to the Maldives.... Solo traveler would it be worth going? Or is it full on rain at this time!?
We are travelling to see our family in Western Australia in October and planning a couple of weeks in the Maldives en route.
So many options! We are a fairly fit mid-late sixties couple looking for a quiet stay to enjoy relaxing beach life with some swimming and snorkelling - preferably snorkelling close to the shore for a nervous snorkeller - me!
We are hoping to book a small hotel or guest house rather than the huge 5* resort hotels if possible.
Any advice on location and accommodation…
