The hotels which our tourists choose most often for their travels.
Maldives: no news, no shoes
Maldives is a resort that has already become a household name, because absolutely everyone dreams to visit it at least once in a lifetime. No wonder we associate recreation in the Maldives with picturesque scenery of the Indian Ocean: last minute tours from Moscow for two people in this beautiful country really guarantee the opportunity to get at their disposal miles of secluded beaches, enjoy high-quality hotel services and never cease to marvel at the beauty of local nature. The choice of tourists is more than a thousand different islands and they all have a good selection: with blue lagoons, spacious beaches and exotic flora.
Types of vacation
The Maldives is a tourist destination that needs no introduction, but it’s not just beach vacations that attract travelers here. Shopping tours and excursions to Islamic shrines are what you can find in the densely populated cities, but the active tourists in the islands waiting for a stunning diving with the opportunity to visit marine reserves and underwater caves, and surfing, for which here go wave hunters from around the world.
For a lazy time in paradise tourists choose one of the fifty islands of North Male. It is the main archipelago of the Maldives, where tourism began to develop first. Proximity to the airport was one of the reasons why the era of luxury hotels flourished in this place, but do not forget that the coast of these islands is strewn with white sand. A large number of crystal clear lagoons with turquoise-clear waters only strengthen the status of the paradise place for this atoll.
If sunbathing by the sea and relaxing aren’t part of your plans, welcome to Ari Atoll. All kinds of sports are available, including diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, parasailing, water skiing, canoeing, catamaran rides, and more.
However, do not limit yourself to just this atoll: there are many more islands in the Maldives where even professionals of water sports will not be bored. The Baa and Raa atolls, for example, are great places to dive with schools of dolphins, while Laviani is teeming with exotic underwater fauna.
Flight to the Maldives during the winter vacations – perhaps the best gift for the New Year, they will tell you in any travel agency and will be absolutely right. Everyone’s favorite holiday falls on the high season: by this time of year the constant rains are over, so beach-goers can get a “under the tree” beautiful tan, and divers – a sea of impressions from diving in the most comfortable weather conditions. Moreover, already a week before the holidays the Maldives “change” in the New Year’s atmosphere, however, noisy animation with fireworks should not be expected. Here the holidays are celebrated in a quiet and peaceful way.
How much is a tour to the Maldives?
A tour to the Maldives is not a pleasure from the cheap: you can not buy an “all-inclusive” ticket with a flight from Moscow in 2022 for the price of Turkey or Egypt, but “loopholes” are still available. The price may well depend on many factors. The prices are influenced by the season: the proximity of the equator is one reason for the stability of weather conditions in the Maldives, but the climate on the islands is not always ideal. From May to October it often rains and wind blows, so the high season is considered the period from November to February.
A special role is played by the stardom of the hotel. Most local hotels are complexes of bungalows, which are given 4 or 5 stars. In order to save money, you can consider more favorable three-star alternatives, but the difference in terms of accommodation will be very noticeable.
