The Maldives is one of the most advertised place on earth. I am sure everyone is secretly wishing to be there at least once in their lifetime. Hence, it is not the easiest trip to do since Male is a tiny island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, it is a long trip from most of the countries and the hotels are very expensive.
However everyone will admit that the Maldives is a very special on earth. The clear waters, the white sands, the tiny islands spread on the water give the traveler a great experience.
Once you arrive on Male, you will have to get either a speedboat or a sea plane to go to your hotel. There are hotels very close to Male but there are islands close to two hours away from Male. When budgeting for your trip in the Maldives, do not forget to calculate this cost.
There are many hotels in the Maldives; from luxurious 5 star hotels to smaller 3 star hotels. You can choose the one which fits your budget. I would say that some of the hotels might be overpriced. At the end of the day, the Maldives is all about the view! You can enjoy the view from any hotel!
Do not forget to snorkeling in the reefs and swim with the baby sharks!
