Maldives - 2010

05 April 2013

The Maldives – the dream destination…the words “paradise”, “exotic tropical waters”, “crystal clear water” and “white sun-drenched beaches” will never be a cliché to describe this stunning destination – and as a bonus, each resort is located on its own private island.

We are about to visit the Maldives during beginning May 2010, just before the monsoon period arrives in June. We decided to try out a little island hopping experience, in order to experience more than just one of these stunning islands. We have chosen our two favourite islands in the Maldives – that is if you are looking at great value for money, but still have the experience of a lifetime, as obviously there are many exclusive luxury 5* resorts to choose from, but for now, we will focus on the great value-for-money options – the resorts that appeal to most visitors tastes, expectations and of course, their budget. Our choices was naturally 4* Sun Island and 4* Club Med Kani.

Below is a summary of each resort’s information. A detailed update will be published upon our return from the Maldives in a month’s time.

Sun Island is located within the South Ari Atoll, 107kilometers south of Hulhule International Airport and 30 minutes by seaplane.

The resort offers a wide variety of accommodation to cater for different tastes from and the room categories varies from Deluxe rooms to Water Bungalows build on stilts over the water. The resort also offers all the necessary facilities you would expect from a good 4*. Here you will find 5 restaurants, catering for different culinary tastes, from Italian to Thai, Seafood and International cuisines. The bars serve a wide variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, plus a range of exotic cocktails.

Club Med Kani on the other hand is located within the North Male Atoll, 20km from Hulhule International Airport and 30 minutes by speedboat. This resort is a paradise with lots to offer at excellent value.
