GETTING HERE

All guests will arrive into the Maldives at Male’ International Airport, a specially built island, close to the capital Malé. After completing Immigration and Customs formalities, guests proceed to either the seaplane terminal to board a Trans Maldivian Airways Seaplane, or the Domestic Terminal to continue their journey by Domestic Flight. Our preferred Domestic Carrier is FlyMe which operates regular daily flights from Male to Dharavandhoo. The flight time on their new, comfortable and air-conditioned ATR 72-500 turbo prop aircrafts is about 20 minutes after which you will be transferred on a speedboat ride (approximately 45minutes) to your Maldives resort on water where your holiday island experience awaits you – Reethi Faru Resort.
