MV-MLE-FACTS-GET-AROUND-ISTOCK-000018167684Small-580x120

Welcome to Maldives ! You just landed in Male and you are now wondering how to reach your hotel/guest house ?  Well, landing at Malé international airport is just the first step of your journey. Forget the boring and endless bus/car ride to your hotel and get ready for an exciting and exotic transfer.

Because of Maldives geographical situation you will need to fly or cruise to your hotel.

Some resorts can only be reached by boat, and some require a seaplane transfer. But for others you’ll have the choice between the two. Speedboat transfers are usually arranged for resorts or local islands located in North Male Atoll & South Male Atoll. You will find plenty of resorts in this area ( see list below ). According to your resort location , your speedboat transfer from the airport will take between 10 and 60 minutes.

Speedboat can operate 24hrs a day while seaplane will fly only from sunrise to sunset ( 6am till 5pm). No matter at what time your international flight will land in Male, your speedboat will be waiting for you and will be transferred immediately to your final destination. The speed boat jetty at the airport is only a 1 minute walk from the arrival terminal.

Do not worry, seasickness is something very uncommon in Maldives. Sea is usually very calm and rides are very peaceful. If the weather is anything sort of calm perfection ( usually during monsoon period ) it can be exhausting and a bit bumpy ( same and even sometimes worse with a seaplane transfer ! ).

According to the location of your resort, you will pass other islands en route  (resorts, local islands and tiny uninhabited picnic islands) and be sure to keep your eyes open for dolphins, flying fishes, mantas, whale sharks…

Unfortunately speedboat transfers to your resort/guest house are usually very expensive if arranged through your hotel or resort. Therefore we recommend you to book your speedboat transfer independently of your stay. Some local travel agencies can arrange private speedboat transfer to your hotel with rates up to 50% less expensive than resort prices.
