Before booking a holiday in the Maldives, you need to find out a lot about your hotel in the Maldives, especially if it is to be your honeymoon Hotel in the Maldives, the island hideaway of your dreams. You can do a lot worse than to concentrate your search on the South Male Atoll
The South Kaafu or Male Atoll is just below North Kaafu Atoll and this is the place in Maldives where tourism first started.
The whole Male atoll, both North and South is really the tourist centre of the Maldives and has the largest number of resorts. There are a lot of diving and surfing sites on this atoll.
This is quite a large list of Hotels in the Maldives on the South Male Atoll. They are about as close to the airport as you can get. This information can be used as a basis of further investigation before you choose your Hotel in the Maldives.
It’s a big decision to make when you book a vacation to the Maldives, because you might feel that one beautiful palm fringed island surrounded by turquoise sea, a multicoloured and faceted reef, and thousands of brightly coloured marine life to view is much like another.
This just isn’t true. Each island, each hotel is different.
You need to think about the size of the island, the number of rooms, where the rooms are situated. You need to work out how small and intimate you want it to be, bearing in mind that an island you can walk around in ten minutes may appear to be paradise at first but become claustrophobic very quickly. You might view the boat trip to the island with horror, so you need to know how long the transfer is.
The list of South Male hotels isn’t complete, but should form a basis for investigation before you make a decision on your holiday in the Maldives
