Guide When Planning A Trip To Maldives

There are many reasons why tourists choose to spend their holidays at Maldives water villa aside from its romantic vibe. The water of Maldives is known to be crystal clear with bountiful marine creatures to marvel with such as sharks, rays and fishes. Tourists are also treated with many activities when staying on the island. For travellers planning to visit Maldives for the first time, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Make sure to check the weather before booking anything. It is ideal to book between the months of November and April because of the sunny weather. This is also the peak season so expect the prices to be higher than off season rates including the accommodations and the local experiences. Travelers on a budget should go during the shoulder season which is right after peak season and before the offseason starts.
  • For cheaper flight tickets, book routes that are departing from the Middle East Asia either domestic or regional are recommended. This means landing in Male and riding a speedboat going to Maldives or board a domestic flight to Maldives. If you have the budget, you can splurge on a roundtrip ride via seaplane.
  • Travelers are known to book flights weeks or even months ahead of time in order to get cheaper deals. The same goes when booking accommodations in Maldives. This is most important during the peak season because there is a high possibility of hotel rooms getting fully booked. Research ahead of time to know the best island to stay in and the hotels or accommodations rated highly be previous guests.
  • If you happen to have already booked Maldives water villa during the Ramadan which lasts for a month, there are a few things to keep in mind such as dressing properly when roaming around the local islands and do not indulge in public display of affection. There is no pork and alcohol during this period this is why it is best to book another date outside of the Ramadan period. Majority of the establishments will be closed and the staffs are away as this is a time for them to be with their respective families.
