Ehrm, it does not quite work like that, you have to say how much you can spend,

Resorts go from 200 usd a night at the real budget end, to 50k a night at the real high end.

Activity costs depends on what you want to do, and unless you tell us, we can't tell you the cost.

Food costs, like anywhere in the world, depends on what you order from the menu and how many courses.

So, you need to provide more info, have a look at the faqs and repost.

It's one resort, one island, so all that is on that island is the resort. You can't island hop, without spending a lot of money and then you pretty much have to be going to stay at the next island,,you can't just turn up.

Transfers can be expensive. Maybe you need to do a bit of research on the destination first and then decide. Somewhere in the Caribbean may be better for you,

Your biggest challenge will be finding somewhere on budget. Get with a good travel agent like purely Maldives in the uk, who cater to a global clientele if it's still the place for you.

Ps as for dinners, you obviously have to eat in the resorts restaurant, you are captive on the island and all that is on the island is the hotel and it's guests. Cost depends on what you order and star rating of the resort, but say an average of 30 usd for a main course.

Pps how you get there depends on which island, and the distance from male,,,so can be boat if close, seaplane, if not so close and domestic flight if not close at all. Costs escalate the further it is.

Do not stay in male, no one does, it's an industrialised capital.
