It's great to know that you have decided to go to the Maldives.
Maldives offers you plenty of options to choose from. You have the option of staying either in a private resort island (those that are private islands with no more than one hotel to an island and are surrounded by the blue azure seas all around) or you could choose to go the local way, by staying in a local island guesthouse/hotel and mingle with the locals. I am assuming, you would opt for the former. I am also attaching a map of Maldives which will give you a sense of the geography.
A holiday in Maldives does not really require any itinerary, as all you would be doing is relaxing at a holiday resort. In terms of what activities you could engage in while you are there, I can pass you the information as soon as you have chosen your resort. Activities and their related prices vary from resort to resort and there is no general rule of price thumb.
DAY 1 - Arrive in Maldives
Your first day begins as soon as you arrive into Ibrahim Nasir Male International airport. Photo below gives a glimpse of what you are about to keep seeing for the next few days!
Upon your arrival, you will be met and welcomed by a representative who will assist you with your transfer formalities (all the hotel counters are located just a few feet away from the exit gate of the airport). Depending on the mode of transfer booked, you will be then whisked away to your resort by one of the following means:
- If you are booked to transfer by speed boat, you would be taken over to the jetties where the boat would be waiting for you.
- If you are booked on a sea plane, a mini bus or car would take you to the sea plane terminal, located across the runway of the airport.
- If you are booked on a domestic flight, you would be assisted with check-in formalities at the domestic terminal, located just about 50 feet away from the international one.
Once you arrive at your resort, you will be served refreshments, your check-in formalities completed and you would then be taken to your room or villa that has been booked for your holiday. The rest of the day is free and you can spend it at leisure. Overnight at the hotel.
