Maldives is a unique country to visit for vacations. Your experience in this exotic country will be most likely shaped by the resort you will choose to stay, since most of the hotels are located on secluded islands. You could choose to stay in the country’s busy capital, Malé, which will give you more things to do, however, since you are going all the way to the Maldives, you should do it the right way!
Another option would be to stay in more than one resorts, however, this would cost you a lot of money and time, since you will have to move around the islands.
