Currency & Tips

Going to Adaaran Club Rannhi in a couple of weeks, very excited but a bit of trepidation due to mixed reviews :/ But hey ho it's the Maldives!! :)

What currency would people advise we take for tips? English pound? American dollar?

Any tips help appreciated ;)

USD is the best currency to take. Never mind those reviews. It is pretty difficult to not have a great time in the Maldives :)

Have a great holiday.

The Maldives are stunning and the most relaxing place on earth. Relax and enjoy. If you go on any holiday with a grateful, cheerful and friendly attitude you'll enjoy wherever you go.

Currency is US dollars. Small denominations are better for tipping.

Forget the negative reviews. Some people are never happy, or are only happy when complaining about something. Take the good from the reviews and look at the lovely photographs. You'll love it!

Being your first time in Maldives, you'll love it, don't worry.

Just don't expect luxury as it's a budget island and everything will be great...
