Everyone should visit Maldives at least once. It's a beautiful country which consists only of small islands. It is located in Indian ocean and has beauty of its own. It is the relaxed vacation you need, away from hustle bustle.
People usually choose Maldives as honeymoon destination and i totally agree with especially after all the hectic functions of a wedding.
The best time to visit Maldives is November to March, otherwise the heat will be too much to tolerate.
We started our journey from Mumbai. We boarded a midnight flight to Malé, which had a layover in Colombo. We had chosen Srilankan Airlines which was good but if you are a vegetarian then I will say go with Air India or some other airline as we did not like the Veg food provided on the plane.
We landed in Malé in the morning around 8:30 -9:00. There is an "On arrival visa" for Indians in Maldives so you don't need to worry about it before hand.
Remember Maldives is half an hour behind Indian Standard Time. So take care about connecting flights as per time difference.
Once we were done with all the formalities at customs and collected our baggage, a guy from our resort was there to receive us at airport. Most of the resorts provide this facility at an additional cost, I will suggest do take it as it wont be possible for you to find your way to island without it.
The resort had booked a domestic flight for us till Dharavandhoo and from there it was a boat ride till the resort island. You can opt for sea plane as well which will directly take you to your island.
There are ample of small islands in Maldives and most of the resorts own the entire island. You can choose based on your budget and reviews online.
We chose Kihaad. It was an island in Dharavandhoo.
In the afternoon we just used to relax in the room as its too hot outside .
