If you are planning your holidays and are interested in visiting a beach or island resort, then you might want to consider a trip to the Maldives. Maldives, a paradise in the Indian Ocean comprises of 1,192 islets with around 200 islets that are inhabited and contain many beach resorts. To provide you the luxury of the finest hotels, solace to your inner soul and relaxing aromatic therapy in world-class spas, Maldives could be your dream destination.
Maldives has well over a hundred beach resorts that can suit your budget and your tastes. Most of the islands are almost entirely resort properties, so it might be better to look at more than just the best deals (there are many) in the market, but you should make a choice from what suits you the best. You need to ask yourself what it is that you might like to do on your vacation. For instance, do you prefer a small idyllic island with only a few guests or would you rather a large island resort with lot of guests and facilities like spas, swimming pools, bars, discos, restaurants, diving centers, healing centers, jacuzzis, saunas, beauty salons, recreational facilities that offer wake boarding, windsurfing, scuba diving, beach volley ball, clubs and more. If you are traveling with kids then you might want to look out for a resort that provides children’s activities. Or maybe you’d like to have a combination of all of these choices.
For those just married and planning for a honeymoon trip in Maldives, it’s helpful to ask a travel agent to investigate the many excellent honeymoon offers that the resorts provide. Although, strangely enough, you cannot have a legal wedding in the Maldives, you can find some resorts that even arrange wedding ceremonies with no legal status.
Once you have decided on the ideal resort that can cater to your needs, you may also find a water bungalow if you like to stay near to the beach and enjoy the beauty of sea and nature in midst of its natural splendor.
Some of the many resorts that can provide a great deal and fulfill of your needs include Taj Exotica, One and Only Reethi Rah, Kanuhura, Four Seasons Kuda Huraa, Rangali Hilton, Angsana Ihuru, Constance, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, Soneva Fushi, W Maldives Retreat and Spa, Anantara, Maayafushim Coco Palm Bodu Hiti and Dhiggiri. If you arrive at an odd hour of the night and have to travel to the island of our choice by sea plane, you might have to stay a night in at the Hulhule Hotel at the airport or in a City Hotel in Male. As the airport is not on the same island as Male, you will have to take a local boat (Dhoni) to reach Male.
It’s probably be a good idea to use a travel agent to book your trip. Consider getting an all inclusive price including the speed boat or sea plane fares. Contacting the resorts directly may be a little expensive and may also be inconvenient without having a local guide. If you also wish to enjoy the excellent diving from the Maldives beaches and want lessons, you will have to purchase that service separately as the diving schools are generally not included in the offerings of the resorts.
