What to Know About Maldives


There are over 1,000 islands in the Maldives, and yet only 192 are inhabited by locals. Many of the remaining islands have been repurposed, and are now tourism escapes. With over 89 different resorts across many different islands, it’s easy to see why the Maldives remains one of the most popular tourist locations, especially for elite travelers. For those that have never been to the Maldives, here are several important tips that you should know.

Maldives Traveling Tips

  • Maldives is a Religious Nation – The resort life and the country life is very different, and before you go to the Maldives you should be aware of local laws and customs and follow them to the letter. On resorts, you’re free to drink openly and dress as you please. But keep in mind that alcohol is forbidden outside of the resorts, and many of the behaviors that are acceptable in other tourist countries could receive scorn off the resorts.

  • There Are Only 5 Airports – There are airports on Gan Island, Hanimaadhoo, Kadhdhoo, Kaadedhdhoo, and the main airport on Male. We at evoJets can book your private jet to the Maldives at any airport, but keep in mind there will be a bit of added travel time for you to arrive at your specific island resort, depending on where you are staying.

  • Most Resorts Are Amazing (Although Not All Resorts are Created Equal) – With almost 90 different resorts to choose from, there is certainly something for everyone. But since a Maldives vacation is likely about luxury and relaxation, you may first want to check out W Retreat, GiliLankanfushi Maldives, Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Six Senses Laamu, and Baros Maldives as great places to start.

  • Service is Incredible – The Maldives prides itself on its outstanding service. The staff at many of these resorts handle every single need. That makes the Maldives a great place to visit when you want to get pampered.

  • Your Activities Will Depend on Your Resort - Keep in mind that, depending on the resort, there may be few non-beach activities around, so finding a place that you’ll enjoy for its service and amenities is important. The restaurants, bars, and activities on each resort are usually the only ones in the area, and so you should take the time to pick a resort that has the activities you want to engage in.

  • April to October is Rainy Season – Rainy season isn’t necessarily a bad time to travel to the Maldives, but it can be inconvenient and may affect the quality of your trip. The “dry season”, from November to the end of March, is the best time for a stay, making the Maldives a great holiday trip.

No matter where you go or what you decide, the Maldives can always be a great experience. With white sand beaches, crystal water, and excellent quality resorts and service, the Maldives is the go to spot for many private jet travelers with evoJets.
