When we first went to the Maldives in 2005 before I joined TA we had no idea of what to expect in the way of facilities other than the main ones listed in the travel brochure. The upshot was that we took some stuff with us that we never needed and didn’t take other things things that would have been handy.
Resorts have kept up with Trends & Technology since then eg WiFi, Apple docking stations, flat screen TVs, Nespresso machins, irons & ironing boards etc, but is there anything that you “Would Like” ether supplied in the Villa or as an extra Facility provided by the Resort.
I will start it off with a small selection of some of my (and Mrs Misty’s) “Would likes” when we visit the Maldives.
1. Extension lead. Power points never seem to be where you want them; we always take one with a single 3 pin socket on the end.
2. A cloths line with pegs, in the bathroom or somewhere discreet as you don’t want everyone’s washing spoiling the views. Some Resorts provide the pull out cloths line and some provide Towel racks that can be used to dry cloths. To cut down on cloths we tend to wash smaller items during our stay especially as we stay for 10 to 14 days, we always take a travel elasticised one compete with pegs.
3. Resort TV. A channel on the TV to let you know about daily activities and a running daily total of your expenditure, especially useful if you are on B&B. The only resort we had this was Velassaru.
