Tips For A Great Maldives Vacation

  • Go all inclusive. Get a hotel package
  • Be prepared for exorbitant prices
    The Maldives is a luxury destination and you’ll very quickly find out that everything from batteries to wine is sometimes ridiculously expensive. Many Maldives vacation packages do not include this extra expense, so expect to spend quite a lot of money once you're there.
  • It’s paradise but you can still get conned
    The Maldivians are undoubtedly a very friendly bunch of people, but there are still cases of tourists being conned. The most popular trick happens the moment you arrive at the airport – Do not, I repeat, DO NOT accept anything the friendly people in the cafes give you ( even though they give the impression it’s free ). If you really need to, make sure you ask how much it is in advance or you might just end up paying 15 USD for a small bottle of water. You’ve been warned!
  • Pornographic material is illegal ( even soft porn )
    I don’t know why you would need to bring pornographic material on holiday, but if you’re thinking about it, forget it. Your luggage will be thoroughly searched at the airport and you will have to pay the stipulated fine.
  • Expect seaplane transfer delays even if you've prebooked a Maldives vacation package
    Since the airport is on its own island, you need to travel from the airport to the island where your resort is located. This can either be by seaplane or boat. Be aware though that there are sometimes delays with these transfers even in luxury hotels that provide you with this service
  • Staff expect to be tipped
  • The Maldives is not really a place to go shopping
  • Dress conservatively
    The Maldives is largely a Muslim population and dressing conservatively to respect their beliefs is highly encouraged, especially in the towns or villages. Also, many resorts discourage wearing swimming suits when at the restaurant
  • This is the place to learn how to dive as there’s nothing much else to do
