Here’s a guide on how to pre-plan your trip to the Maldives:

Where To Stay


When you think of The Maldives you think of luxurious overwater bungalows, resting above the ocean. JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa, Amaya Kuda Rah Maldives Resort and Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives are all luxe resorts filled with anything you could imagine.

While the islands are known for their luxury hotels that can be quite pricey, The Maldives does have budget-friendly options. The Standard Huruvalhi Maldives, SAii Lagoon Maldives, and the RIU Atoll are all reasonably priced resorts with the luxe feel you’re looking for when visiting.

What To Do While You Are There


Walk out of your overwater bungalow to enjoy the warm white sand and clear ocean water. If being one with the locals is more your speed, take a day trip to Male and explore the city center.

If you want to explore one of many other islands that make up The Maldives, Dhigurah is a crowd favorite with bikini beaches, restaurants and cafes, and lots of souvenir shops.

Where To Eat


Cuisine on the islands range in variety because of the ties to India, Sri Lanka, and neighboring Asian and African countries. The Ledge by Dave Pynt is a great place to try modern Australian barbecue cuisine. Tapasake is a Japanese fusion restaurant serving fresh-caught fish for their sushi and sashimi feast. Bokkura mixes modern takes of ndian, Pan Asian, and Western cuisine into one menu, making it something for everyone.
