Plan Your Trip to Maldives - Guidelines on Organising a Holiday in the Maldives

As one of Asia's most popular honeymoon destinations, Maldives is a dream holiday hub for the masses. Here are some tips on how to plan the ultimate Maldivian getaway.


Time the Trip

As a year round vacation hub, there is no such thing as a bad time to visit the Maldives. But those who wish to make the most of their holiday experience should time their getaway to coincide with the best weather conditions the archipelago has to offer. The peak tourist season in the country falls between the months of November and April when sunny skies prevail. This is also the most expensive time of year to head to the Maldives as every commodity is costly due to the high influx of tourists. Budget travellers may wish to travel during the off season as rains in the Maldives do not last all day. But the winter monsoon season in October and November and once again from May to August should be avoided.


Flight Booking and Arrival Time

Next, it is time to search for affordable flights to the paradise isle. As one of the world's best loved beach holiday hubs, the Maldives is served by nearly every airline on the planet. Visitors should, however, pay attention to the arrival time when selecting a flight as sea plane and boat transfers from the airport are only available till the afternoon. Those whose flights are arriving at night will need to book accommodation in the capital city of Male in addition to the resort of their choice as they will be stuck in Male overnight.


Reserve Accommodation

When it comes to securing advantageous accommodation in the Maldives, it is crucial to pay attention to the on-site amenities on offer. As hospitality islands, each Maldivian resort is spread out over the length and breadth of a single isle so visitors must make sure that the venue meets their standards of comfort in every sense. The location of the island is also significant as Maldives attractions are not within close range of every resort island. So whether one selects the Dhigali Maldives or any similar resort, it is imperative to ensure that the location and the facilities on-site tick all the boxes.


Explore Activity Options

Although most visitors believe a vast majority of their time in the Maldives will be spent lying in front of the beach or the pool, there's much to discover and experience in this tropical island haven. Water sports lovers will be surprised to find that the country is a hot bed of activity for a plethora of water bound adventures all year long. From scuba diving, snorkelling and surfing to water skiing and parasailing, the choices are truly endless. Enlist the help of local tour operators to enjoy these activities during the holiday by doing online research on the cost, time and availability of one's favourite water sports activities.


Sign Up for Excursions

From sunset cruises and island hopping excursions to fishing trips and dolphin watching safaris, the sheer variety of outbound adventures available in the Maldives will wow travellers planning to holiday in the islands. First time visitors should sign up to experience at least one of these excursions during their time in the archipelago.
