The best part about doing multi-island stays in the Maldives is definitely the excitement of knowing you have another amazing place ahead of you after leaving your previous (equally beautiful) island home. No holiday blues here (something everyone who’s ever been on holidays anywhere amazing can definitely relate to).

Then there’s the fact that changing islands keeps everything exciting and somehow managed to stretch more out of that ‘holiday feeling’ (why have just one “Oh my gosh!!!” moment when you can have several on each new island… 😉 ).

Sidebar: Island hopping in the Maldives is more than just an indulgent experience – it can be a also  be a great way to help your budget when you’re visiting the Maldives and you can chop and change your itinerary quite easily to match your budget while getting amazing experiences…. but more on that later! For now, here’s our latest video from the Maldives!

    I follow your blog and have derived great inspiration from it in the past. But I feel compelled to bring something to your and your readers attention regarding Maldives.

    My 32 yr old brother went to Maldives for his honeymoon in July 2016, and he died there.
    The Dr was throughly incompetent and gave him unneceesary dangerous medicines (to reduce his blood pressure and also his heart rate) that caused a normal, healthy young man to die.
    The effect of those medicines could have been reversed if the place had some basic emergency medical facilities like an oxygen mask, or a defibrillator. Had those been available, my brother would have survived.

    He stayed at the Sun Aqua Vilu Reef Resort in Dhaalu Atoll. Medical specialists we have spoken to since agree that the medicines should not have been given without a thorough check up.
    A day before my brother died, another honeymoon couple drowned in a resort owned by the same company.

    Maldives is a popular tourist destination, especially with honeymooners. But what we didn’t know before this happened to us is that the country lacks the most basic medical infrastructure.
    The resorts are mostly remote, access in case of an emergency is hard, and medical facilities are practically nonexistent. The hospitals in Male are no better and we were told by the consulate staff that they don’t trust any of the hospitals in Maldives, and even for minor ailments everyone who can afford it, including the Prime Minister of the country travels abroad for treatment.

    I know millions of people go here and come back safely. When we are planning vacations, we don’t plan on falling sick or having an upset stomach due to bad food (my brother’s case). We don’t think of checking up on a country’s medical system unless we are planning on moving there. We always assume the best and merrily go on our holidays. And thats how it should be.

    You don’t have to take my word for it. Do your own research. Better to be safe than sorry.
    Read the US Dept of State’s travel advisory to Maldives. Other countries have also posted similar advisories.
    I wish someone had told us about this before, then perhaps my brother’s story and life would have been different.

  • INCREDIBLE colors! Love that pink and blue combination 🙏🔮
