05 Things to Keep in Mind When Selecting a Maldives Resort – Enjoy the Perfect Getaway

Planning a much-needed holiday to the sunny Maldives? While there is much to look forward to, you will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to private resorts. With so many options it may be difficult to select the right one so here are some things to consider before making the final decision!


Easy to Access Island

For the location of the resort, remember that each one is located on a private island which can be close or far away from the international airport on Hulhulé Island near the capital, Male. To reach the property, you will generally have to take either a speedboat or seaplane. Resorts in Maldives that are in the North Male Atoll are within easy reach of the airport and can be thus accessed by speedboat; keep in mind that this will not only save on time but costs as well since seaplane transfers are usually more expensive.


Accommodation Options

When it comes to choosing your accommodation, consider resorts like Adaaran Select Hudhuran Fushi that give you the option of beach and overwater villas for either families or couples. Both types of living spaces have their unique charms be it a location right by the shore or providing direct access to the waters below anytime you want. If you have never stayed at an overwater villa before, it's worth experiencing what it's like to sleep above the ocean or a lagoon and some offer magical sunrise or sunset views as well.


All-Inclusive Plans

Keep in mind that once at a resort, you will most probably be spending most, if not all, of your time there when holidaying in the Maldives. Hotel restaurants can be found at each property, though to fully make use of what is on offer, consider opting for resorts that provide all-inclusive plans. Look for those that not only cover meals as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages but feature other benefits too; these can include access to a kids' club and sports facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi, sunset cruises, non-motorised water sports and more.


Facilities and Excursions

As mentioned before, since you will be based at one resort, check to see what kind of facilities it has on offer; it should ideally have more than one restaurant and bar, an onsite spa, activities like tennis, football and volleyball and a kids' club, which is perfect for those travelling with little ones. Additionally, it should also provide excursions, so you have the option of enjoying sunset cruises, dolphin watching, big game fishing, photo flight adventures and encounters with sharks too.
