Abi David, Private Sales Manager explains what you need to take into consideration when booking your luxury Maldives holiday.

 

Transfers Are Key

 

Depending on the island chosen the method of getting there after arriving in Malé can vary enormously both in terms of experience and cost. The islands closest to Malé tend to be the most established resorts, as they were developed first, and will have relatively short speedboat transfers – ideal for those with younger kids after a long flight or those on a budget. Seaplane transfers are the norm for those medium-range islands and, while more expensive, are an incredible experience and really add to the luxury maldives holiday. The more recently-developed islands tend to be further from Malé with a domestic flight followed by a boat transfer. This adds to the journey time but the pristine, Robinson Crusoe feeling on arrival more than makes up for it.

 

Luxury Overwater Choices

 

Like the South Pacific, the Maldives is famous for its luxury overwater villas. The sound of waves lapping underneath your private deck and the opportunity to snorkel straight from your villa is a big draw and particularly popular with honeymooners. Do you like waking to the rising sun with a nice coffee in hand on the outdoor deck, or viewing the setting sun in the evening with a cool glass of something? This will determine which island and which room category to choose, depending on which way the villas face.

 

Make It A Tailor-made Twin Thing

 

The Maldives makes a brilliant twin-centre destination either after a cultural tour of Sri Lanka or a city break in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Most would choose to end in the Maldives for complete rest and relaxation to finish their luxury holiday, especially after a Sri Lankan tour, but the Arabian cities are very easy to do en-route home too with numerous daily flights. In the low season summer months these routes are the only way of getting to the Maldives from the UK on scheduled flights so why not take advantage of that to create the ultimate tailor-made escape.
