Urgent last minute baggage panic!

Hi, we fly tomorrow and we are well over on our luggage, oops!!! Can any one tell me if there is a hairdryer at Meedhupparu in the beach bungalows?

Hope some one can help,

can't answer your question specifically, and it's easy for me to say as what hair I have is dry as soon as I step out the shower.....but the general consensus is forget hairdryers anyway due to the humidity.

Even my other half who won't venture out of the house unless every hair is perfectly straightened in exactly the right place doesn't bother.

If all else fails, you could always see if you can buy a little travel hair dryer once you have cleared security in London. Mrs D has one and it hardly weighs anything but is surprisingly effective.

If you're over the limit going to the Maldives just chuck at LEAST half of it out- you won't need it!

You don't want shoes only flip flops perhaps ,you most certainly don't want loads of clothes just bikinis,some sarongs and light dresses /tops for the evening. You don't need towels they are supplied.You do need lots of sun tan oil and books - there you are hand luggage only

We went in January 2011 & there was a hairdryer in the bathroom.

I have long hair but found it quickly dried in the lovely heat so ended up not needing it much!

We took far too many clothes so be ruthless with your packing, chances are you won't need it all.

Enjoy your holiday, Meedhupparu is amazing!

Funkykat me and hubby are flying tomorrow from Manchester and my suitcase is over as well so looking to remove some clothing . I decided not to bring my hairdryer as the description of rooms says hairdryer, so this will do for me. But I have brought my straightners just in case...lol
