Packing questions...

What plug adaptors do you need in the Maldives?

Do you need malaria tablets?

Are beach towels provided for you?

What toiletries are in the rooms?

Do they have hair dryers in the rooms - and ladies are they any good?!

Are Iron's available?

Hmmmmmm I think that is it for now! Going in two weeks and need to start getting sorted but we are stopping in Dubii first for 5 days and I have a feeling we might buy a few bits there so want to try and pack only the essentials (Although me and packing only the essentials do not go in the same sentence!!) I also have to educate myself that I will not need a million pairs of shoes for the beach!!

As well as all the above help can you let me know the essentials to take as in what is not out there and what NOT to take!

Thanks for your help

Hi Sares

Don't need plug adaptors English type 3 pin . Not a Malaria country don't need tablets,Beach Towels provided,Toiletries in rooms.Can't answer the how good the hair driers are but since it's Hilton I would guess OK.Probably got irons but you can get one by asking and have a good laundry service. You will not need a million pair of shoes full stop you won't wear them.This is a 5 star resort there's little or nothing they can't supply if you ask for it

The only shoes that you need are flip flops - and you don't even really need those as the Conrad provides them. You really won't wear any other shoes and probably won't want to walk around in them since it's sandy everywhere. I brought shoes just to wear to tne wine cellar, but they provided slippers, so you don't even need them there.

Hair Dryers are fine. They will bring an iron/board to your room in 2 minutes. They have great products for shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and bath gel. No need to bring that. I think everyone else got the rest.

I would only take a few cute dresses for the evening, but no shoes except flip flops. I brought kitten heels and never wore them once. I also brought one light cardigan. Cover ups and swimsuits are all you need plus maybe one other day outfit in case you go to the ithaa cocktail people wore shorts or skirts to that.
