One of the distinctive features of Maldives is most visitors will experience a transit journey once they arrive at Velana International Airport in Male before finally arriving at their resort. Depending on the location of the resort and its distance from Male, the transfers are either in speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight. The transit time varies from a 10 minutes boat ride to an hour’s plane ride.If you prefer to feel the exclusiveness of Maldives, a distant resort only accessible in a seaplane would be suitable. All transfers are timed and our travel consultant is handy to guide you accordingly.
