Maldives - Speedboat transfer from Male to Paradise Island

Hi All,

I am Nikhil from India & have selected Maldives as my honeymoon destination in the first week of December. Kindly give me your valuable suggestions on my following queries -;

1) Should I book Paradise Island through a trader or do self booking

2) In case if I self book it, what can be the challenges and mainly what will the speedboat two and fro from Paradise Island cost me.

(Any other suggestions are kindly welcomed)

Regadrs,

Nikhil

I wouldn't book Paradise Island... They sell it in India a lot, but, in my opinion (i visited it), it's an ugly Island, there's no reef, really crowded (specially the ow, which looked like the market), ...

Apart from that,it's always cheaper (almost always), to book through a travel agent thanthe resort website. The transfer is organised by the resort (look carefully that it's included in The offer) you don't buy it on your own, it's around 120-200$ Per. Person.

Other suggestions: read The FAQ and say your budget...

As for your original question.

1) See how you get the best deal (You should try both) and compare. Do though always check any available or confirmation direct with the hotel. In order to make sure you get what is offered.

And all is correct.

2) The transfer will cost you apx. 117 USD PP, But keep in mind that locally you will face some taxes additional on it when you decide to arrange it local.
