Im going to visit India, then down south to Sri Lanka Colombo then off to the Maldives. There are many resorts in the Maldives and I'm trying to find out which one would be the best.I'd be grateful if anyone has had some firsthand experience in traveling to the Maldives and could shed some light. The one that stands out the most is Gili Lankanfushi. This resort seems to have the highest ratings and best reviews according to Trip Adviser.
Some other resorts that are on my checklist are Bandos, Paradise Island, Vakarufalhi, Baros and Medhufushi. I think i also prefer the option of using a speedboat rather than a seaplane as this could increase the cost significantly right?
Yes, Gili Lankanfushi was rated first for reviews in 2014 and has won several awards, so there's no way you can go wrong there. Medhufushi and Vakarfalhi Island resorts are a bit further and im sure you will have to get a seaplane. Not only that you may have a layover as seaplanes dont fly at night. I have seen a bunch of resorts on http://www.maldivesresortdeals.com and some other resorts to consider are the Banyan Tree, Four Seasons Resort, Club Med Kani and Adaaran.
It really depends how much you want to spend. Do you have a budget? Maldives has many cheaper resorts and guesthouses too, there shouldn't be a problem around availability but expect to pay more during peak season as usual. about 3 years ago
