HOW LONG SHOULD I SPEND IN THE MALDIVES?
For honeymooners and romantics, the appeal of Maldives never ends, but for the most part, we recommend taking between four days and a week to enjoy all the islands have to offer. For this reason, it is recommended to add Maldives as the relaxing conclusion to a more extensive itinerary.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT THE MALDIVES?
Rain is a part of life in the Maldives, and most months will see some precipitation. Temperatures remain roughly the same throughout the year, and in the wet months, torrential downpours rapidly give way to bright blue skies. If you don’t mind the occasional monsoonal deluge, the Maldives are suitable at any time of the year, and with watersports being so integral, you’ll likely already be wet! From December to April, rainfall drops from 230mm of rain in the wettest months to a monthly average of 75mm, so these months are definitely the preferred times to visit.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM ACCOMMODATION IN THE MALDIVES?
With so many islands, there are equally as many accommodation options to choose from. While these vary in style, luxury and budget, the standard of service and facilities varies comparatively little, and you are all but guaranteed to be both pleasantly surprised and profoundly satisfied with almost any villa or resort you visit, especially when staying with our preferred and recommended partners.
If you aren’t a fan of the ocean and tropical beaches, the Maldives might not be an ideal destination, but if this is the case, you are very unlikely to choose it, nor would we recommend it, anyway. It is a wonderful place to relax and unwind, but equally filled with waterborne adventure and entertainment. Food is of an exceptional standard, with seafood playing a significant part on the menu, though most resorts and accommodations will satisfyingly provide for all diets. Though it is paradise wherever you go, it is worthwhile investing that little bit extra to achieve what will truly be an unforgettably magical island experience.
