“Kako spet Maldivi, a nisi tam že bila?” in “Pa kaj vidiš na teh Maldivih, a ni tam en sam dolgčas?” sta tipična komentarja prijateljev, ko izvejo, da grem “spet” tja. Ko kasneje na družbenih omrežjih objavim kakšno fotografijo, se plošča hitro obrne: “Packa, ti na plaži, pri nas pa kidamo!” in “Koliko pa stane en teden na Maldivih? Jaz bi tudi!”. Okusi so seveda različni in tudi žepi niso vedno dovolj globoki, da bi si lahko privoščili pobeg v ta raj sredi Indijskega oceana. Za tiste, ki vas zanimajo počitnice na Maldivih (mimogrede, zaradi podnebnih sprememb naj bi bila večina otokov pod vodo do leta 2100), sem pripravila nekaj nasvetov in odgovorov na najpogostejša vprašanja.
Ah, Maldives. What can be written about this tropical paradise that hasn’t already been said? Are words even enough to describe this heaven on Earth? Well, for one thing, every island is unique and a little bit different and each traveler has his own idea of paradise. I have visited Maldives 4 times and I can say with no doubt in my mind that I will keep coming back. After all I have added the islands in my travel favorites list. Because Maldives represent everything that a beach lover wants and needs to recover from everyday stress. If you are asking yourself how much does one week in Maldives cost, when is the best time to visit Maldives, which island should you choose and all the basic information for a hassle free vacation in Maldives, you came to the right place.
It was a rainy November and shitty December in Slovenia so we made a last-minute decision: we are going to Maldives for Christmas! Because with Maldives you just cannot go wrong. At least if you plan your vacation carefully and read my blog with Maldives travel tips first. 😉 For this time we chose Holiday Island Resort & Spa, mainly because it is a part of Villa Hotels & Resorts group which we already knew from our last Maldives experience. And because it promised all in one: fantastic beach, all-inclusive option, beach bungalows and rather fast connection to the island.
