Airport Transfer

One resort is one island in the Maldives. Each island is separated from the rest by sea. That means you need a transfer to get there. Resorts located close to Male' International Airport or Male' Atoll often use speedboats for transfer. For remote locations seaplanes are the most effective mode of transfer but it flies only in day time. If you are arriving at late afternoon or evening you may have to spend first night at Male' City or Hulhumale' to take seaplane next day. Otherwise, there are numerous resorts within reach of domestic flights that operate both day and night. Most of the travel agents and tour operators include transfer charges in the package, shown as a separate charge. In some cases you have to pay transfer charges directly to resort on arrival. If you are not aware you may find it surprising when the resort asks to settle it. So, be sure to check what is included in your package. If you are coming to stay in a guesthouse the transfer may be organised via public ferry.

Best All Inclusive Resorts

Constance Moofushi

Over the years Constance Moofushi has remained as one of the top and highly popular resorts on Maldives Finest. It has widely established its reputation as the destination that offers a gigantic All Inclusive package. The daily updated ranking on Maldives Finest is based on guest reviews from trusted sources. This indicates overall guest satisfaction, including the All Inclusive package offered by the resort. There are 3 room categories in this resort; 24 Beach Villas, 56 Water Villas and 30 Senior Water Villas, making the total rooms to 110. Room size of the Beach Villas is 57 sqm, Water Villas measure 56 sql and the Senior Water Villas occupy an area of 94 sqm. It is needless to say all the room types come with air-conditioning, ceiling fan, bathroom, hairdryer or whatever basics are there in all Maldives resorts.

Beach Villas are the cheapest accommodations available at Constance Moofushi. It is smaller than other two room categories but maintains same standard of architectural beauty and comfort of the room. It is just less spacious and located on the island rather than the water. If you are seeking best value Beach Villa may be the best choice. Whichever you room type you choose the amazing All Inclusive package is available to you, there may be minor changes in room amenities but that is not a big deal at all. Manta is the main restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Alizee is an A La Carte beach grill located few metres from the sea, serves only dinner from 19.30 hrs till 22.00 hrs. All Inclusive guests are entitled for one meal at Alizee during the stay. There are two bars that serves All Inclusive drinks; Manta Bar and Totem Bar. As the name suggests Manta Bar is just next to Manta Restaurant and guests can conveniently walk a few steps after dinner and enjoy the evening.

Lily Beach Resort

The 125 fully All Inclusive resort is located in South Ari Atoll, it takes about 25 minutes to reach by seaplane from Velana International Airport. Lily Beach is also a top ranked island on Maldives Finest, on 4 January 2023 it held the position of 37 out of top 50.

Diving and Snorkeling

Much of the Maldives lies underwater and many of the visitors love to discover beauty of the Maldives coral reefs and fascinating marine lives. There is no official count of reefs in the Maldives, but it is believed to be more than 4000. A typical resort in the Maldives would have around 20 dive sites around, including house reefs of different islands and individual reefs. This means divers will not have to get bored of diving the same spot over and over again. But, in every resort the divers have their favourite spots. Which dive point you want to go also depends on many factors such as weather conditions, tide, current, visibility etc. Instructors working in various resorts chose a point based on these factors. If you are a guest you can also tell them what kind of fish or coral you want to see and they give preference. Instructors sometimes ask guests which dive point they want to go and if many guests choose one point that’s there they go. Most of the guests want to see sharks in large schools, manta rays, turtles, whale sharks and colourful corals. The underwater world is just a fascinating place; it is highly recommended to every guest to give it a try. Even if you are not a certified scuba diver many resorts offer introductory dives with a Dive Master or Instructor taking person care of you. If you like to it you can do the courses in resort and get international certification. To do an Open Water course it usually takes less a week, perfect if you are on a 2-week holiday. Some guests think snorkeling is enough. It may be enough, till you try diving. When you dive you are very close to fish, they are just a few inches away from your face. In most dive sites they are not scared of guests and tend to be friendly. But, it also depends on the type of fish, sharks often do not come that close like sweetlips or groupers. If you are totally new to the water you can start by learning to swim, always wear lifejacket and never attempt to swim alone. There are more safety tips for that and it is important to be aware of all that. Otherwise, many resorts offer private snorkeling excursions and you can ask for swimming lessons if you want.

Villa with Water Slide

Having a water slide in the villa is a trending feature many guests like to have, especially if you are on honeymoon. In classic tourism this facility is part of water parks and more commonly popular among the kids. Now in Maldives there are few resorts that offer water villa with slide.

Beach villa with water slide is less common but available if you are seeking just that. But, the real fun happens over the water in a clear lagoon that is not too deep and also not too shallow. When you slide down it gets you into the beautiful lagoon. This feature is very ideal for honeymooners, fun is not only for kids. See the water slide resorts with important details.

Private Island & High Privacy Villas

Some of the luxury resorts that feature high privacy in their villas are known as private islands and they are usually smaller in island size as well as number of rooms. These 5 star hotels are also regarded as ultra-luxury resorts. Butler service is an essential part of the holiday, including packing and unpacking. Villas in private islands often have dedicated dining area, usually both indoor and outdoors. Guests would have some meals in the villa, but for the most part they usually visit the outlet or have it on the beach the restaurant. A short walk or buggy ride for the meals is enjoyable and at the outlet you can see all the different varieties of food options, especially if there is a buffet.

Island Beach

Maldives mostly follows "one island - one resort" consept. Few resorts such as Cheval Blanc Randheli or Crossroads is comprised is more than one island. While most of the islands have white sand beach there are few islands that have rocky beaches. Quality of beach greatly varies depending several environmental factors. A gorgeous resort would have beach all around the island and it would be soft to walk barefoot. It is common that all islands undergo little bit of sand erosion which may affect around 10% of the beach. It is a natural process that brings refinement to pristine beaches. Most of the islands are not that fortunate, sand erosion occurs upto half of the island. This means the beach sand moves to different locations of the island, usually it is seasonal. So, by looking at the pictures you may see a beautiful infront of the villa category you are booking but when you get there it may be different. Since it is natural factors resorts do not guarantee beach presence. All resorts have beach somewhere in the island.
