Plan your trip

Epicure - - TRAVEL FEATURE -

Upon ar­riv­ing at Ve­lana In­ter­na­tional Air­port on the is­land of Malé, you'll be greeted by a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Noku Mal­dives. The friendly staff will es­cort you to the ferry or sea­plane (Trans Mal­di­vian Air­ways) ter­mi­nal. Depend­ing on the volatil­ity in the weather, you could be tak­ing ei­ther trans­port or a com­bi­na­tion of both to reach the re­sort.

Mal­dives is hot and sunny all year round, with av­er­age tem­per­a­tures of 23°C to 31°C. The best time to visit is be­tween Novem­ber and April; the other months are low-sea­son pe­ri­ods due to mon­soons and the high tides.

If you are look­ing for a lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher to cap­ture the best mo­ments of your wed­ding, hon­ey­moon or birth­day, try Asad’s Pho­tog­ra­phy (@asad.photo on In­sta­gram). Rates from US$1,500. www.asad.photo

Wifi con­nec­tion in Noku Mal­dives is a bit spotty, so it’s bet­ter to pur­chase a lo­cal SIM card from the air­port be­fore board­ing the sea­plane or speed boat.

Mal­dives is a Mus­lim coun­try, but the Sharia law is not prac­ticed in most of the is­lands ex­cept for Malé, the cap­i­tal.
