Hotels in Maldives
In the decades since the islands became a tourist destination, dozens of resorts and hotels in the Maldives have popped up, with many offering all-inclusive stays where room, board and scheduled activities are factored into the cost of staying. What’s more, some resorts practically control their own islands, and it’s not unusual for visitors to spend all their time on resort grounds, kept apart from local laws forbidding alcohol and the consumption of pork. However, if you’re more interested in a bit of independence, consider booking a Maldives hotel room in one of the many above water bungalows that dot the islands, which sit on stilts above the islands’ crystalline waters. Or if you’re looking for hotels in Maldives that have more of a homey and budget-friendly feel, consider booking a Maldives hotel room in the many guesthouses and inns on atolls like Vaavu and Addu, where costs are significantly lower than those at the resorts and afford self-starting guests the opportunity to set their own schedules.
