    • Weather in the Maldives late October/early November?

      Maldives May 27, 2015 at 3:33 AM

      Hi everyone!!
      We are strongly considering the Maldives for our honeymoon in the last week of October and first week of November. However I have recently read mixed reviews on the weather and I just wanted to ask on here, has anyone travelled around this time and if so what has it been like? It is such an expensive trip that we would hate to think we could be rained in for the whole trip! Don't get me wrong, we wouldn't mind an odd shower here and there! Please can someone advise as we need to book soon :-) look forward to hearing from you all xx thanks.

      Hello Friends,
      I am planning to spend 1month in the Maldives and do a scuba diving course. I am in search of a resort at decent rates where I can afford 1month stay and enjoy the Maldives. Can you please help me in providing the details of resorts available there or a website which can share the information of economical resorts.

    • Maldives on a budget

      Maldives Apr 2, 2015 at 4:58 AM

      Hi!
      Me and my girlfriend would be doing a visit of 8-9 days to the Maldives after our trip through India.
      The plan is to do some island hopping. I have found some prices for the speedboats and the sea planes but they are too expensive for our budget.

      I have read about the cheap taxi boats and ferries (Dhoni's) that are transporting the locals to the islands on a regular base. They are very cheap, offcourse the trip would take longer. Is it possible to book them (as a foreigner) there or do you have to book them in advance?

      Anyone that has some experience with using them?

      Also some good islands to visit that are not hours away from Malé? (South Malé atoll, North Malé atoll, Alifu atoll: Maafushi, Guraidhoo, ...?)

      Thanks for the help!
      Best,
      Mike

      My idea is to spend the first day in the capital, and the rest in a resort or sailing around the archipelago. The main question is how to have the best rate price / quality. The very high prices are common and someones are forbidden for me and wife.
      Please, may you advice me which is the best way to consume a reasonable amount enjoying these islands?

    • Romatic hideaway, Water villa. Please suggest

      Maldives Nov 21, 2014 at 3:06 AM

      Hi all,

      We are planning our honeymoon, and search for a romantic private water villa.

      We like:
      - Romantic
      - 'Local style' (it should not look like a european modern hotelroom)
      - Restaurant with only sand under our feet
      - A small pool on the villa sun-deck
      - Fantastic snorkeling direct from the sun-deck

      We do not like / do not need:
      - Shows and karaokee in the evening
      - Fitness / golf / tenniscourt
      - A lot of fancy, modern luxury
      - Ipod docking, TV, Home Theater system, ...

      I think you get the picture ;-)

      Please suggest based on your personal experience

      Thank you in advance
      Ulrik and Tina

    • Veligandu or Six Senses Laamu

      Maldives Oct 19, 2014 at 12:56 AM

      Hi, I will be visiting the Maldives in late-October. I've narrowed down my choices between a Jacuzzi overwater villa at Veligandu (all inclusive) and a lagoon- or ocean-facing villa at the Six Senses Laamu.

      Although Veligandu looks great, the Six Senses rooms and overall resort layout look more elegant and "dreamy" with more attention paid to design and details. Overall the price difference is about $450 a night (Veligandu being the cheaper of the two.)

      I am worried that the Six Senses might be more susseptible to rain because it's location is more southernly. Do you think that this might make a significant difference as far as rain goes? I don't mind the occasional shower but wouldn't want to be stuck in torrential rains.

      I know no one can predict the weather and I'm going during the rainy season, and I also know that this is a subjective choice. But if it were up to you, which option would you choose? Thanks!

      Traveling to Maldives and Seychelles from Jakarta.

      Maldives Oct 4, 2014 at 1:44 AM

      Dear Travelers

      I have set a plan to visit Maldives and Seychelles for approximately 10 (ten) days. On this occasion I have some questions in regard of that travel plan:
      1. I will do take-off from Jakarta. So, what is the finest itinerary for that upcoming trip (A: Jakarta-Seychelles-Maldives-Jakarta or B: Jakarta-Maldives-Seychelles-Jakarta) as we have to compromise with the availability of the flight schedule?.
      2. Is there the direct flight from and to Jakarta for 2 (two) itinerary options as above (A & B)?. If unavailable (if transit is needed), what is the plane with its shortest flight hours for those options as above?.
      3. What is the best Live Cooking Restaurant in Maldives and or Seychelles which serves the Mediterranean menus?.
      4. What is the special and or necessary thing that I need to prepare for those destinations (Maldives & Seychelles) if I will do traveling to those places on summer season?.

      Wishing I can get the answer from this forum and I really appreciate for the response.

      Thank you in advance for sharing.

      With Warm Wishes

      Gratuities ???

      Maldives Sep 7, 2014 at 3:08 AM

      Just wondering if its best to tip the staff on a daily basis or leave a lump sum on the last day .
      In your opinion how many dollars should I allow to cover all tips during a two week stay?
      I appreciate most of the Indian and Maldivian staff have family commitments and rely on our generosity to survive and I know only too well what a struggle that can be.
      I am now well into retirement and I'm not afraid to admit it I do have to watch the pennies (most of my holiday gear came from charity shops) but I know what you're thinking, if I can afford to visit the Maldives then I can cough up a few bob in tips.
      So what do you recon the average amount should be?
