Top 10 Best Hotels near Male Airport 2022
Best Maldives Resorts Accessible by Speedboat from Malé Airport
Updated Dec, 2021
The white powdered sands of the sprinkled atolls that make up the Maldives have, for some time, enthralled travelers seeking peace and luxury in stunning surroundings. The most phenomenal resorts in the country are located further away from Male (Velana) International Aiport and can only accessible by a seaplane transfer. But for holidaymakers looking to get to their beautiful, secluded Maldivian paradise as quickly and easily as possible the resorts that can be reached by speedboat present an appealing option.
Upon arrival at Male international airport, guests are met and immediately swept directly from the terminal to the boat and whisked to their island resort in as short a time as 30 minutes, regardless of the time of day or the weather conditions. The resorts accessible by speedboat transfer from Male airport are ideal for visitors who want to make the most of their time in paradise since the boats can be scheduled in line with return flights, allowing for maximum time spent paddling in warm crystal waters. What's more, these resorts are closer to the capital city of Male, that may attract travelers seeking a little taste of authentic Maldivian culture.
We chose our 10 favourite Maldives resorts accessible by speedboat from Velana International Airport in under an hour. Have a look to see which resort suits your needs whether you're looking for luxury, budget, family friendly or adult only accommodation.
