Maldives - Private Travel

With more than 1,200 pristine white sand islands in the Indian Ocean, many of them exquisite luxury resorts and private islands, the Maldives is considered the ultimate in private travel. This island paradise is home to countless coral reefs, offering up watersports galore. The seemingly endless crystal-clear water and soothing vibe are guaranteed to melt away care within an hour of your arrival.

Beyond the exquisite beaches and island resorts, visitors delight in the unique Maldivian culture, influenced by India, the Middle East, and Thailand.

Despite its size, the archipelago of Maldives is tailor-made for exploring. To truly enjoy this glorious collection of exotic islands, chartering a boat or a plane to hop from island to island at your leisure is highly recommended. With an impressive selection of luxury hotels and resorts boasting private pools that are themselves mere steps from white sand beaches, the Maldives is the perfect place to unwind and relax. Life revolves around the water in the Maldives, with opportunities to indulge in all-day adventure and overnight intrigue. Excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, and waterskiing are propped up with deep-sea fishing, whale-watching, and windsurfing. This region of the Indian Ocean is home to a variety of marine ecosystems, housing more than a thousand species of fish and more than 20 species of whales and dolphins. Beyond the exquisite beaches and island resorts, visitors delight in the unique Maldivian culture, influenced by India, the Middle East, and Thailand. Be sure to schedule time to explore the capital city of Malé as well. Its pretty pastel buildings, charming local shops, and award-winning restaurants result in truly authentic bespoke travel time.

Waldorf astoria maldives ithaafushi, patina maldives, finolhu baa atoll maldives, hurawalhi island resort, vakkaru maldives, joali maldives, gili lankanfushi, what our clients say about adore maldives.

Jazz with ADORE Maldives was phenomenal and enhanced our experience beyond expectations. From arrival to departure my family was treated with a warm welcome, smooth processing, and a calm organized departure. Jazz and her team are knowledgeable professionals who care and make the time to personalize your experience. Highly recommend Jazz and her team to help you plan your trip to paradise.

I can’t say enough about Adore Maldives! I initially tried to book the UAE and the Maldives with a travel agent based in the US. Adore Maldives had phenomenal reviews so I contacted them and Jazz responded immediately. She is very knowledgeable, honest, and one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to work with. We usually use Virtuoso travel agency in the States but their recommendations are based on a few resorts that a few of their clients have visited. Jazz is local and therefore very familiar with the Maldives.

The team from ADORE Maldives went above and beyond to make sure we had a the best experience in Maldives. They were waiting for us at the airport when we arrived (and I got some lovely flowers!) and they were there when we departed from Male to assist with the security screen and check in process as well. The booking process was also very easy. They provided several options and requested additional information from the hotels on their facilities and activities, which greatly helped us made an informed decision. Thank you ADORE Maldives Team!

We’ve been visiting the Maldives for many many years and we’ve dealt with many travel agents in the UK, India, Sri Lanka and of course the Maldives. Patrycja, Shanoon and their teams are impeccable, offer a prompt, thorough and personalised service. I couldn’t recommend ADORE enough and praise them for the fantastic customer service, very hard to beat offers and overall experience. Well done to everyone at ADORE , we’ll now book to return next year 🙌🏻 💙

You can expect a tropical climate almost all year round. However, the best time to visit is between November and April, with peak season between the driest months of December and March. The monsoon season runs from May to October, peaking in June.

Transfers and getting around on your Maldives holiday

When journeying from the airport to your luxury hotel, or when hopping between islands, you'll travel either by boat or seaplane.

Once on your island, you can explore the island on foot or bicycle if the resort has them available.

Why should I visit the Maldives?

Consisting of 26 coral atolls 1,000km from Sri Lanka and home to white sand beaches and shimmering turquoise lagoons, the Maldives is an effortlessly beautiful country. Whether it's the North Malé Atoll and its popular dive spots like Banana Reef and Prisca, or the Raa Atoll's extensive array of luxurious accommodation options, you'll find something to inspire you.

The pristine waters of the South Ari Atoll are a hotspot for whale sharks, which you can observe while snorkelling. 

As for couples, all you'll need to do is enjoy the wonderful barefoot luxury to get a taste of romance. Swimming in the inviting warm water of your infinity pool is the best way to end the evening, or how about a relaxing spa treatment at Velaa Private Island to escape the stresses of everyday life?

No matter which luxury resort you end up choosing, you'll be able to enjoy an unforgettable holiday experience from start to finish. Sample wonderful Maldivian cuisine at Soneva Jani on the Noonu Atoll or discover one of 32 magnificent dive sites at Constance Moofushi on the South Ari Atoll. Alternatively, you can go swimming with beautiful marine life inhabiting the sparkling blue waters at Four Seasons Resort Maldives Landaa Giraavaru .

The best things to do in the Maldives

Relax on your private beach or in your private pool, spot tropical fish meandering around the colourful house reef and enjoy the comforts of an overwater villa. Whether it's watersports at Fairmont Maldives or the dive centre at LUX* South Ari Atoll , there's a host of amazing things to do in the Maldives.

Snorkelling through crystal clear waters while observing whale sharks, manta rays and reef sharks is an unforgettable experience. Perfect for exciting family holidays or romantic honeymoons, the water conditions are ideal for both adults and children to explore – with all necessary equipment provided.

On the North Malé Atoll, the luxury Maldives resort Gili Lankanfushi offers the award-winning Meera Spa to soothe and help promote balance. Not only that, but there are excellent sunset and fishing excursions throughout the islands. As such, you'll always have something to do, even if it's simply soaking in the rays.

What to eat in the Maldives?

You'll find some world-class dining experiences during your holiday.

At One&Only Reethi Rah , the resort's à la carte restaurant, Fanditha, focuses on a delectable assortment of Mediterranean delights in its beautiful beachside setting. Her Kitchen at JOALI Maldives prides itself on its immersive cookery experience where you share an exquisite banquet over a long table. Some luxury Maldives resorts also boast underwater restaurants for a truly special meal.

Surrounded by pristine waters, the beautiful resort Soneva Fushi has a diverse array of dining options. Tuck into traditional Maldivian cuisine with exceptional service at Sobah’s or enjoy stunning panoramic views with Mediterranean-inspired dishes at Fresh In The Garden. From the range of fresh treats at Mihiree Mitha to the delicious banquets at Down to Earth, Soneva Fushi is a foodie paradise.

Voted as the 'World's Most Romantic Restaurant', Crab Shack at Soneva Jani provides a fantastic offering of crab-based courses. Located on a soft white beach in the south, Crab Shack is the perfect spot for lunch and drinks before returning to your private villa and unwinding.

The best Maldives Islands

Whether it's the Noonu Atoll, North Malé Atoll, Raa Atoll, South Ari Atoll or Baa Atoll, you're simply spoilt for choice when it comes to luxury boutique resorts. Some of the beautiful islands include Malé, Hulhumalé, Biyadhoo, Fihalhohi and Maafushi. The slice of island life at Conrad Maldives Rangali is seriously special while the secluded isles of Six Senses Laamu are ideal for watching dolphins play.

During your next luxury getaway, why not visit the uninhabited islands? Plenty of resorts allow you to explore the soft sands, turquoise waters and lush palms of these castaway islands. Not only that, but you can enjoy a peaceful picnic on the sandbanks or even catch a spectacular sunset.

Whichever island you end up choosing, the range of beach suites and beach villas available are sure to leave you feeling utterly at peace throughout your whole stay. From the breathtaking private islands to the divine Fari Islands, your beach holiday in the Maldives will be unforgettable no matter what.

Luxury Maldives Travel Guide

luxury travel expert maldives

An archipelago consisting of 26 separate atolls, the Maldives is made up of more than 1000 coral islands. Influenced by various cultures over the centuries, including Indian, Arab, African, Portuguese and Dutch settlers, it became a British protectorate in the 19th century. The Maldives then gained independence from British rule in 1965 and has since developed into an independent and popular tourist destination. Viewed as the ultimate paradise spot with untouched white sand beaches, clear lagoons and low rise, often over-water ultra-luxe accommodation, it’s a frequent first choice for honeymooners and A-listers.

Useful Info

How to get there

Expect to be on a plane for between 10 to 12 hours, followed by a speedboat transfer, domestic flight or seaplane to your resort (the latter part of the journey is a picturesque experience and very much part of your Maldivian holiday adventure). Malé is the main international airport, with direct flights from London, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle and Bristol. Many visitors like to combine the trip with a few nights’ stop-off in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha or Muscat. British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways are among the carriers who fly to the Maldives.

When to visit

The peak tourist season is January to March when the weather is generally dry and there’s minimal rainfall. It’s an excellent time for water activities as visibility is at its best. And the temperatures are comfortable, ranging from 25°C to 31°C during the day. May to November is a quieter time, characterised by more rainfall and higher humidity, although showers are usually short-lived and followed by sun. Those seeking a balance of busyness and settled weather may choose to travel during the shoulder seasons.

Ideal holiday types

Romance is synonymous with this part of the world, providing the perfect environment to switch off and connect with one another in breathtaking and peaceful surroundings.

Families also love the Maldives, with all-inclusive resorts offering kids’ clubs and large self catering villas — some with huge slides right into the lagoons.

Watersports are abundant here; snorkelling, diving and swimming the reefs allows visitors to discover some of the world’s most colourful tropical marine life.

Spa breaks are popular, with the isolated nature of the islands allowing travellers to focus on their personal wellness in five star resorts.

Eco-friendly activities like coral planting and marine conservation projects are on the rise.

Ozen Life Maadhoo – M6m

luxury travel expert maldives

Imagine dining six metres below the sea, surrounded by colourful marine life, bathed in the aquamarine hues of the ocean. This is the reality of a meal at M6m , Ozen Life Maadhoo’s signature restaurant. Begin your culinary journey with champagne and caviar at the upstairs lounge, before descending into this magical world; a sublime setting for any anniversary, proposal or bucket list experience. All tables are placed to face the watery spectacle, so you can enjoy the freshest seafood and wine pairings, while mesmerised by the view. M6m serves lunch and dinner, with the latter reserved for over 12s.  Read our review of the Ozen Life Maadhoo

Ozen Reserve Bolifushi – ORIGINE

luxury travel expert maldives

Ozen Reserve Bolifushi offers several restaurants, including this multi-sensory dining experience at ORIGINE. Many of the veggies and herbs come handpicked from the Chef’s Garden, these are paired with the freshest local seafood and high-quality cuts of meat. The hotel’s Elite Cellar Selections provides a choice of over 80 labels of wines to accompany your meal (the illuminated “Cuvee Library” collection can be seen through floor-to-ceiling glass panels). Comfy armchair-style seating, ambient lighting and glowing amber hues create a convivial and warm atmosphere.  Read our review of the Ozen Reserve Bolifushi

Soneva – Flying Sauces

luxury travel expert maldives

Follow a 200-meter trail by zipline through a canopy of trees, to reach this dining platform and open kitchen. Part of Soneva Fushi, Flying Sauces is an incredible treetop culinary experience set 12 metres above ground. It has the largest collection of wine and fizz in the Indian Ocean, thanks to the resort’s library-like cellar and incredible views. Once you’ve arrived and removed your harness, you’ll take seats around a huge circular table seating up to 12, for breakfast, lunch, high tea, or dinner, by Chef Rasal Jayawardene. Flying Sauces meals range from one hour and 15 minutes to around three hours.

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi – Li Long

luxury travel expert maldives

This experience is designed to feel like you’ve been invited to a meal at one of Shanghai’s noble residences. Choose to dine in the main restaurant or reserve the private dining room, with a direct outlook on the lagoon. The timber construction houses polished wood floors, leather seating booths and traditional aesthetic elements such as carved screens. And there are a handful of candlelit tables outside on the overwater deck. The kitchen boasts Maldives’s first classic wood-fired oven in which most of its recipes are perfected; do try Li Long’s signature roasted Peking duck and finish your meal with a nourishing Chinese tea.

Stay In an undersea villa

luxury travel expert maldives

It’s all about the water in the Maldives, whether on it, in it, or in this case, under it. At the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort, you can sleep 16 feet below sea level. The en-suite master bedroom is set in a curved acrylic tunnel that serves as your own private 180-degree aquarium. Upstairs in The Muraka villa, are two bedrooms and a bathroom with ocean facing tub and an outdoor deck with an infinity pool. You’ll also have a butler on call 24 hours a day.


Go snorkelling

luxury travel expert maldives

Book your holiday for the dry season, if you want to get the best possible snorkelling experience. Some of the best spots in the Maldives for this pursuit include:

  • Hanifaru Bay (a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve famous for manta ray and whale shark sightings)
  • Maaya Thila (known for its abundant marine life)
  • Banana Reef (one of the oldest and most popular dive sites)
  • Kuda Rah Thila (ideal for both snorkelling and diving)
  • Fushifaru Thila (part of the Lhaviyani Atoll, with colourful fish, turtles and some hammerhead sharks.

Take a flight in a seaplane

luxury travel expert maldives

The seaplane is a key mode of transport within the Maldives, connecting the main international airport with various resort islands scattered across the atolls. But if you arrived by speedboat, regular plane, or want to expand on your existing experience of flying by air and sea, you can take a sightseeing trip for breathtaking views of the atolls, islands, and turquoise waters. Most resorts will arrange these excursions, or you can contact a local provider to enquire about routes. Again, you’ll find the dry season to be the best time for this, due to stable weather and increased visibility.


Go on a submarine adventure

luxury travel expert maldives

Submarine tours in the Maldives often reach depths of around 100 feet (30 meters) or more, providing a unique perspective on coral formations, marine life, and underwater landscapes. The duration of the tours vary but typically lasts around 45 minutes to an hour. Suitable for all ages and physical abilities, this is a super way to enjoy the immersive underwater spectacle without any physical exertion or getting wet.


Have a spa underwater

luxury travel expert maldives

Having slept underwater, why not spa underwater?! Huvafen Fushi’s treatment rooms lie eight metres below the surface, creating a mindful and deeply calming environment in which to indulge in a massage or signature ritual, incorporating techniques from the East and West. Beata Aleksandrowicz — a former Sunday Telegraph wellness contributor and Spa Awards judge — is the expert in-house therapist at Huvafen Fushi.


Play golf at Kuredo

luxury travel expert maldives

Part of the Kuredu Resort and Spa, the Kuredu Golf Club comprises a 6-hole Par 3 academy course, a driving range with 10 practice bays and a putting green — all surrounded by palm trees and the soothing sounds of the adjacent ocean. A PGA-qualified pro is on hand if you’d like any tuition. There’s a golf shop. And there’s a sports bar for after the game, where a big screen shows all the major fixtures. The course has been in situ for two decades now and has become a bucket list venue among golfers.


Go sunset fishing

luxury travel expert maldives

Take a two-hour trip into the far reaches of the Maldivian lagoons, as you drop lines into the depths of the reefs. Not only is this a scenic and satisfying activity, it’ll give you an insight into local culture, as you sample the traditionally practiced activity. And you can taste your catch the following day, as the chef prepares and serves it for your lunch or dinner. A guide will be on the boat, along with a range of beers, soft drinks and all the equipment you need to be successful. It’s a sustainable pastime too, operating on a catch-and-release basis, other than the allocation of one fish to keep per person.


Take a star-stuck astronomy dinner

luxury travel expert maldives

The dark skies of the atolls are made for stargazing with your lover. Soneva Jani has harnessed this, with its So Starstruck Astronomy Dinner. The raised platform standing over the sea, serves as an observatory, with its huge 16” telescope and handful of dining tables. This guided experience is led by the resort’s in-house Astronomer, with the opportunity to learn more about the night sky and be amazed. Paired with a fancy meal and drinks, this is a Bond-like, once-in-a-lifetime encounter with nature.

Ozen Reserve Bolifushi

luxury travel expert maldives

Ozen Reserve Bolifushi is an ultra-luxurious resort nestled in lush tropical vegetation and surrounded by white beaches and turquoise waters. This exclusive island offers 90 stunning villas, each with a private swimming pool and beautiful ocean views. Just a short 35-minute luxury catamaran ride from Velana International Airport, the resort welcomes you to experience the epitome of relaxation and opulence. Villas feature timber flooring, high ceilings, and spacious bathrooms, providing a perfect blend of tradition and luxury. Some water villas even have slides leading into the lagoon. Culinary delights await you with a variety of dining experiences, showcasing traditional Indian dishes, Middle Eastern delights by the beach, and gourmet seafood creations complemented by excellent wines and champagnes. For adventure enthusiasts, the resort boasts one of the finest house reefs in the South Malé Atoll, making snorkelling and diving experiences extraordinary. A PADI-certified dive centre arranges courses and expeditions for exploration. Indulge in relaxation at the spa, offering 100% organic treatments, or stay active at the overwater gymnasium. Non-motorised water sports and semi-submarine adventures provide ample opportunities for marine exploration while complimentary bicycles are available for leisurely island rides around the island. Families are warmly welcomed with a Kid’s Club and Teen Lounge, where regular events and activities, including the educational Island Treasure Hunt, keep younger guests entertained. Read our expert review here .

Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi

luxury travel expert maldives

The ultimate in exclusivity, you can book your own private island within the already super private Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi; it comes with five pools, a cinema, two spas, a children’s playground and an entourage of chefs and butlers. Found in the South Male Atoll, the resort is spread across just over two miles and three islands (including the private one), accommodating 11 dining venues, watersports and a sprawling wellness centre. Shakira recently shared snaps on social media of herself and her family at the hotel, living the Maldivian dream, paddle boarding and taking speed boat rides from the hotel.

Angsana Velavaru

luxury travel expert maldives

Translating as “Turtle Island” in the local Dhivehi language, Angsana Velavaru is a wonderful place to snorkel and dive if you’re dreaming of coming up close to Maldivian marine life. It has its own PADI 5-star Gold Dive Centre and a Marine Lab (dedicated to protecting coral reef ecosystems through research and conservation) where you can join a class or a snorkelling safari. Those preferring to take it easy can visit the outdoor treatment pavilions of the award-winning Angsana Spa, or bliss out at the infinity pool with a design cocktail from the bar. Meanwhile, kids are catered for with activities at the Rangers’ Club.

COMO Cocoa Island

luxury travel expert maldives

With two private house reefs teeming with green turtles, reef sharks and bigeye trevally, this is an elite dive spot. 33 overwater villas have an understated design, adding to the sense of serenity encouraged at the resort. COMO Cocoa Island is a place to disconnect from the outside world; take a yoga class in the open-air studio, book a Shambhala massage treatment beside the lagoon, ease aching muscles in the hydrotherapy pool and take a wellness class to get fine-tune your holistic well-being. The food is created to balance flavour and nutrition, with organic ingredients rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals, served raw, steamed or grilled for optimum health benefits.

Six Senses Laamu

luxury travel expert maldives

Since opening a little over a decade ago, Six Senses has maintained a strong commitment to sustainability. Shoes are discarded on arrival, making it true barefoot luxury, and with the opportunity to feel the soft silver sand between your toes, and soak in your own glass-bottomed bathtub with marine life passing beneath, who needs footwear? It offers some unforgettable experiences and excursions, like sunset dhoni cruises, private picnics, sand-dune dining, chilli dining (at a communal table, surrounded by a garden of chilli plants), Cinematic Orchestra DJ sets and jungle movie nights.

Luxury Travel in Maldives

The Maldives are a trailing necklace of twenty-six coral atolls in the Laccadive Sea, 300 miles away from any major body of land. This remote strand of islands immediately conjures images of great palms, waters an unfathomable shade of cobalt, and thatched-roof overwater bungalows that ooze of romance and luxury. Maldives is the perfect destination for anyone seeking a beach vacation or a few days at the beach to cap off another adventure. It will be hard to find a better honeymoon destination than these islands; with year-round sunshine and clear skies, your only worry will be your tan lines.

But although Maldives tours take the idea of “island paradise” to a whole new level, there are other big reasons to visit. The snorkeling and scuba diving, for one. Divers have the opportunity to come face to face with whale sharks, manta rays, hammerheads and green turtles in this underwater playground during their private luxury vacation in the Maldives.

Of course where you stay plays a huge role in your Maldives vacation. We can’t stress enough how important the right locale will be in your experience. At some properties you can luxuriate with a spa treatment and watch the fish swim by; some properties are quaint and cozy, others grand and sophisticated. There are many exquisite resorts to choose from when arranging luxury travel in the Maldives and Absolute Travel’s team of experts can tell you the differences between them and help you handpick the best place to rest your head.

Frequently Asked Questions about Luxury Escapes Maldives

What is maldives.

The Maldives or Maldives Islands is also known as the Republic of the Maldives. This island country in South Asia is situated in the Indian Ocean. It comprises a twin chain of 26 atolls oriented north-south, located about 700 km southwest of Sri Lanka and 400 km southwest of India.

Is Maldives safe for tourists?

Indeed, the Maldives are undoubtedly among the safest places on earth. The rates of crime and incarceration are both quite low. However, in recent years, particularly in the nation’s capital city of Malé, small-time robberies have become prevalent. Pickpockets should also be avoided in crowded situations. Avoid displaying pricey items that can attract unwanted attention.

The safety of their visitors is a top consideration for luxury resorts because they are located on private islands. They all have well-designed security systems. However, it is best to lock your belongings in safe deposit boxes rather than leave them in your room unattended while you go for a walk outside the hotel.

What is the cheapest time to go to Maldives?

The ideal months to explore the Maldives are May through November if you would like to avoid high prices and congestion. Although there is occasional rain, the thunderstorms pass fast and won’t keep the day from getting better. The islands’ low season falls during this time. There won’t be many people at the resorts, and prices are expected to be their lowest.

The Maldives are known as a luxury vacation destination. But for $100 per day, my husband and I had the trip of a lifetime.

  • The Maldives are often known as an expensive luxury destination with five-star resorts. 
  • However, my husband and I traveled to the local islands in the Maldives for just $100 per day.
  • By visiting the local islands, we were able to save money and learn about the Maldivian culture.

Insider Today

With glamorous overwater bungalows, five-star resorts , and a decadeslong reputation for indulgence and luxury, the Maldives are known as a vacation destination for the rich and famous.

My husband and I are budget travelers through and through, and on a recent jaunt to Southeast Asia, we found cheap flights to the Maldivian capital that were enough to pique my interest.

Could the Maldives be traveled on a tight budget? Or were we doomed to spend the trip marooned on one of the world's most expensive islands to visit?

We found that we could travel to the Maldives for $100 per day as a couple — it just took a lot of planning.

The key to budget travel in the Maldives is visiting the local islands

Instead of traveling to the expensive, private-resort-owned islands that are separate from local communities , we island-hopped and splurged on the iconic underwater activities that make a trip to the Maldives worthwhile.

When planning our trip, we did extensive research and chose three local islands that offered unique underwater attractions: Gulhi, Ukulhas, and Omadhoo.

In Gulhi, we'd snorkel with sharks and see the stunning reef systems in the open ocean. We'd travel to Ukulhas, where visitors can snorkel with Manta Rays en masse year-round.

And finally, we'd visit Omadhoo for its pristine beaches .

The local Maldivian Islands were affordable and beautiful

During our trip, we stayed in locally-run guesthouses that offered a complimentary traditional Maldivian breakfast of finely ground coconut and tuna called Mashuni each morning.

The rooms were pristine, and because of the island's small size, everything was beachfront.

We spent our time on the islands strolling the finest white-sand beaches I've ever seen, systematically working our way through the menu of the local restaurants.

Each massive tuna-centric dish only cost us around $2 to $4 per plate. Even still, the trip felt luxurious and romantic.

It was simply the best beach vacation we've ever experienced.

We teamed up with other tourists to save money on tours and excursions

Another perk of visiting the local islands is the reasonably priced tours.

We quickly realized that the price per person would plummet if we could find fellow travelers to share the trips with.

Rather than opt for private excursions, we joined small groups of like-minded travelers for one tour on each island.

We spotted dolphins, snorkeled in vibrantly-colored coral gardens, saw clouds of tropical fish, and swam with all the mega-fauna we had hoped to.

These excursions proved the waters of the local islands had just as much to offer as the private-island resorts.

We utilized the public ferry to travel between islands to keep our costs low

Public ferries in the Maldives run regularly, albeit infrequently, to all the major inhabited islands.

These budget-friendly ferries churn slowly through the open ocean with bench seats and open-air windows.

We painstakingly scoured online ferry schedules and crafted a 14-day itinerary of island-hopping that allowed us to visit multiple islands with no ferry journey lasting longer than five hours.

Sure, we lost a few days to transport, but reading a book with the wind in my hair as we drifted through dolphin-filled waters hardly seemed like a waste of my precious vacation time.

By staying on the local islands, we got to experience more of the Maldivian culture

We had originally intended to visit the local islands to obtain luxury with a budget price tag.

However, we soon discovered that what we loved most about our budget-friendly experience was getting a good look into the local culture.

Since we weren't staying in secluded private resorts, this also meant that we had to be more aware of the country's rules.

For example, many tourists may not realize that bikinis are not allowed on most public beaches in the Maldives.

By staying on the local islands, we got to interact with members of the community and learn about their incredible sea-faring history. We also enjoyed mouthwatering local cuisine.

Additionally, we felt good knowing the money we spent went to locally-owned businesses instead of mega-resorts.

As a couple, we spent just over $1,400 to spend 2 weeks in the Maldives

By booking the cheapest local guesthouses, utilizing local ferries, and choosing our underwater attractions carefully, we saved big and were still able to relish in the pristine white-sand beaches that make the Maldives famous.

Our verdict? The Maldives are an underrated budget-travel destination and should be on every traveler's bucket list.
