Enjoy luxurious holiday lettings in Maldives

Maldives is a luxurious option for holiday lettings. Comprising 26 atolls and over 1,000 coral islands, the area is known for long, soft-sand beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs for snorkelling and diving. You’ll find busy fish markets, boutique shopping, gourmet restaurants and historic sites. Resorts occupy several of the islands, making for an all-amenities travel experience. It’s a great choice for business trips, romantic excursions or a family holiday that will create memories you will carry for the rest of your life.

How to get around

Travel within and to Maldives villa rentals

Most people travelling to holiday lettings in Maldives will catch a flight into Velana International Airport. From there, a representative from your resort will likely escort you to your destination, which usually requires a ferry, seaplane or other water transport to arrive. Most areas you’ll visit are very walkable, and even the capital city is only 2.2 square miles, so walking is the best bet. Travel between islands is best accomplished by yacht or private boat. In the capital of Malé, taxi service is available.

Food & drink 

Traditional Maldives cuisine and dishes to enjoy

Just steps from your holiday lettings, you’ll find amazing and flavourful local cuisine. Bis keemiya is a dish similar to a samosa crossed with a curry puff and a spring roll. Usually stuffed with cabbage, eggs and onions, it must be tasted to be appreciated. Boshi mashuni is a banana flower salad made from blanched, shredded flowers, coconut and spices, then mixed with onion and Maldavian chilli. Garudhiya is a fragrant fish soup that fans of dashi or miso will love. Huni roshi is sort of the Maldivian answer to naan, a coconut flatbread that makes an ideal side.

Essential info

What to know about a holiday rental in Maldives

Maldives is a hot country all year round, with temperatures that average a low of 23°C and highs reaching around 31°C. The high season is between December and March, with travel increasing during these times, and the monsoon season from May through October means a lot of rain and wind. The country is generally safe for travellers, but avoid protests and rallies in the capital when heading out to explore from your holiday rental. Maldives is an Islamic nation, meaning alcohol can be difficult to come by and is expensive. The official language is Dhivehi, but many, especially in resort areas, do speak English.
