Maldives Holidays and Holiday Packages for 2024

Maldives has cemented itself as a titan of tourism and hospitality. Since the beginning of tourism in Maldives in 1973, the country has garnered critical acclaim as one of the best holiday destinations in the world. This archipelago serves as an escape from the upbeat city life and everyday stresses, offering a soothing environment with its aquamarine ocean hues and unbelievably fine sand. 

A trip to the Maldives is already considered to be a memorable experience no matter what you do but why not make it a bit easier on yourself? The resorts have a fantastic variety of packages that makes Maldives holidays that much better. If you’re looking to make your planning less hectic, we would like to present you with some amazing Maldives holiday packages that are top of the line and sure to leave a smile on your face.

Why Choose Maldives for Your Holiday?

The picture above is already an amazing reason why you should pick Maldives as your holiday retreat. Everything that’s tied to the beach and the ocean is something to be witnessed with one’s eyes rather through a photo lens. Each step you take has the fine sand gently caressing your feet, making it feel like you’re almost walking on snow. The blue and green hues dance across the sea, captivating all who stare. A burst of colours fill your vision when you go underwater as corals sway with the waves, with marine life going about their day in the reef.

Aside from the aesthetics of this island nation, Maldives has a lot of activities and experiences for you to pick from. Snorkelling, surfing, diving and anything water related is a given in a country like this. You can also go island hopping to check out how locals truly live so you can get that authentic Maldivian experience. You can take a yacht out to the sea, go kayaking, wakeboarding and all that jazz too! You can even play golf at select resorts so golf enthusiasts won’t be left wanting. A Cinema Under The Stars experience, flyboarding and beachside yoga are some of the other things you can do as well.

One of the newer activities that Maldives has taken to is horseback riding! There are currently two resorts that offer this experience by the names of Siyam World Maldives and Kihaa Maldives Resort.

Maldives is home to over 170 resorts, all of which are luxurious havens for you to indulge in. They come with varying accommodations, such as beach bungalows, overwater villas, large party houses on the beach or over the water, private accommodations for couples, huge homes for travelling families and everything in between.

Let’s go through some tips that’ll help you choose the perfect holiday package for you!

Budget and Travel Preferences

Firstly, you’re going to want to land on how much you’re willing to spend on your trip. This will serve as your benchmark during your planning phase, making it easier to figure out the type of vacation you want to have, ie: the activities, the type of accommodation, meal setups and so on.

This also allows you to pick how you’d like to travel from Velana International Airport to your resort of choice. Maldives is a country made up of hundreds of islands separated by the sea so getting to your resort requires either travelling via speedboat or seaplane. Seaplanes are more expensive than speedboats but will get you to your destination faster so it’s up to you to weigh the pros and cons and pick for yourself.

Do Your Research on Resorts and Tour Operators

If you’re going to travel to a new place or if you’re doing something new even, you probably do your research and it’s going to be a good idea to research the resort you want to stay in, along with some tour operators as well. We at MadlyMaldives offer our booking services to any and all prospective guests who want to make their booking experience easy, pleasant and in line with what they want for their trip.

Resorts in Maldives are spread out all over the country, with some of them being located near important and activity-specific places. Some are located in or near UNESCO Biosphere Reserves so diving and snorkelling in those areas would be a treat. There’re also resorts close to renowned surf locations, manta ray spots, frequent whale shark areas and more. So don’t shy away from googling your heart out when planning your trip.

Look Up Reviews and Testimonials

Tour operators and resorts will tend to have a testimonials or review section about their services, with customers detailing their experience so it’s always a good idea to read up on user reviews for a well-rounded decision.

Package Inclusions and Exclusions

Lastly, ensure that you read the package you’re looking at carefully. Check to see if it offers the experiences that you’re looking for so that you don’t miss out during your trip. A lot of packages have varying accommodation options, meal plans, experiences, etc so keep your eyes peeled.
