Nestled halfway between Indonesia and Africa, the world’s lowest-lying nation welcomes you to its white sandy beaches, sparkling turquoise tides, and thousands of beautiful islands. From coral reefs to lagoons to scuba diving, Maldives is a country stranded in time—beautiful, majestic, and welcoming you with open arms.
The dress code in the Maldives is mostly informal. However, the local Islamic population might get offended by nudity and scanty clothing in public places, and the Government enforces rigid standards. Bikinis and other scanty beachwear are not acceptable in Malé or on any other inhabited island. When entering a mosque, it’s customary that the legs and the body are covered.
Dhivehi is the native language. However, English is widely taught and spoken.
Maldivian Rufiyaa (MVR) is a non- convertible currency only available in the Maldives. US dollars is an acceptable legal currency, pegged at USD 1.00 = MVR 15.42. All major credit cards and currency notes such as Euro and Sterling Pounds are also accepted.
Banknotes and travellers’ cheques can be exchanged at the Velana International Airport and the foreign exchange bureaux in Malé. Credit cards are also accepted.
Tourist establishments have Wi-Fi access, usually for free.
From crisscrossing coral reefs in, a glass-bottomed boat, to taking a nap in your private overwater bungalow, experience life like never before.
Male International Airport (MLE) is the main airport, which connects the Maldives to all major countries in South-East Asia including India. These are the three international airports in the Maldives apart from the Male International Airport.
There are quite a few domestic airports as well which serve atolls like Laamu, Dhaalu, and Gnaviyani to name just a few.
It depends on individual to individual, but most travellers prefer between 3 to 7 nights. On an average, 4 to 5 nights are sufficient, and the vacation can split the stay with two nights at the beach property, and two nights at the water villa. Or you can spend two nights at each of the property and one night at the water villa. You can plan your visit whatever way you like!
