Where may I stay?
It's difficult to beat the ideal mix of large, white sandy beaches, finest blue seas and tropical sun, along with a lot of resorts in Maldives. Shops and hotels go a step even further than this by producing a cool, modern touch that makes visitors feel right, like at the home. On the Ari Atoll lies the unique hotel in the island group, the Dhoni Mighili. This breathtaking hotel holds only twelve individuals and visitors show up both by private airplane, a luxury boat or charming dhoni. Or, when the North Male Atoll is more for your taste, the Hufaven Fushi is a boutique resort that is only 25 minutes by speedboat from the Male' International Airport. Unwind by your own personal swimming pool, since there is only your holiday apartment. Genuinely indulgent, nonetheless, worth every cent.
So what can I see?
The islands that make up Maldives are all small and you can isle jump in between. Many people come for the Maldives diving and snorkelling. However, it might be convenient travelling to Male, the capital city, where mosques, markets and shops might bring you back to reality. If not, just take in the attractiveness of the ocean and the coastlines from your market retreats.
How do I get around?
Just a few of the islands fall within the significantly regulated tourist zone, which the government has applied to prevent harm of villages and natural landscapes. But you still can fly or use speedboat or a dhoni if you wish to move between isles that are allowed.
