Maldives is one of the tourist destinations that travelers love to spend their holidays in despite the significantly higher cost that you will shred out compared to other tourist destinations. But getting to Maldives is definitely worth the cost, due to its breathtaking scenes and ultimate travel experience.

With the help of Dreaming of Maldives, here are some good starter tips to help you manage your location, choose a perfect resort, find a villa and to understand better about resort transfers and climate in Maldives.

Be Aware of the Extras and Taxes- Foods and drinks need to be shipped from abroad to Male (Capital Island) and then from Male to the Resorts. That is why extras and taxes are too high not only in Maldives but also in Luxury Resorts. In spite of their services, each resort needs to charge 2 taxes such as 10 percent service charge and 8 percent goods and services tax. The latter is the only tax that rises regularly.

Know Exactly What "All Inclusive" Formula Includes- You must have lots of options in choosing a resort especially if they have the "all inclusive" formula. Remember that the all-inclusive formulas are not the same in terms of quantity and quality. Inquire first before trying to book in one of their resorts. Ask the things that you really want to know before you decide to book just like knowing the precise inclusion of the accommodations and what amenities are allowed to be used.

Check the Wi-Fi Connectivity (whether it is free or will come with a cost)- Most holidaymakers want to be hassle-free and away from work stress. However, in some cases, they still need to be connected during holidays whether for pleasure or work. Some resorts offer free Wi-Fi access and others requires an extra fee for you to stay connected. There were Maldives resorts that charges to around USD150 per week or USD8-10 for every one or two hours. The paid Wi-FI access is on the high side so it is practical to check first if the place that you are going to stay has free Wi-Fi.

Check Villa location and tranquility- To make your holiday more enjoyable, avoid being located near the transport area, diving jetty or to unpleasant places that will ruin your stay or relaxation. Try to be in a serene private place where you can have more quality time to yourself or family or friends.

Boat Transfers- Boat transfers are longer than its scheduled time in case of bad weather. When Maldives water get rough, transfer time are doubled and uncomfortable; you might probably have sea sickness and back pains.
