About Maldives

The Maldives, officially known as the Republic of Maldives, is a country located in the Indian Ocean, consisting of around 1,200 islands. Situated to the south of India, the Maldives is also approximately 800 kilometers from Sri Lanka.
Each year, the country attracts tourists from all over the world, especially honeymooners. The luxurious hotels on the islands, known as 'resorts,' are considered among the world's best hotels. Because most of the Maldives is at sea level, it is estimated that the islands will be underwater in the near future. 
Due to the threat of submersion from rising sea levels, Maldivians have the option to relocate to Australia. Nevertheless, the substantial influx of tourists to the islands annually drives the local population to sustain their livelihoods through tourism and other endeavors.
The capital city of the Maldives is Male, where the international airport is also located. Upon arriving in Male, visitors can reach their hotels via seaplanes and speedboats. The currency used in the Maldives is the Rufiyaa. However, due to the country's status as a tourism paradise, you can also make payments in dollars and euros in many places.
In the Maldives, only around 300 of the 1,200 islands are inhabited, while about a hundred islands are home to hotels. Typically, hotels are built on their private islands and offer bungalow-style rooms, stunning turquoise waters, and almost year-round sunny weather, creating a tropical paradise.
A significant portion of the Maldivian population practices Islam. Although Buddhism was the predominant religion in the past, Islam is the prevailing belief today. While tourism forms the backbone of the country's economy, fishing also holds a significant place in the Maldivian economy.
Some of the most famous hotels you'll come across in the Maldives include W Retreat Resort, Huvafen Fushi Resort, Banyan Tree Resort, and Sheraton Resort. These hotels offer tourists two different accommodation options: overwater bungalows and beach bungalows. First-time visitors and honeymooners often prefer rooms above the crystal-clear waters, but beach bungalows are equally luxurious and comfortable.
Regarding dining, the Maldives is influenced by Sri Lankan and Indian cuisine, but you can also find numerous alternatives from world cuisine, especially in tourist facilities, including French, Italian, and Spanish flavors. Keep in mind that many hotels generally enforce the 'no news and no shoes' rule, meaning you leave your shoes and the outside world behind when you step inside. Moreover, many hotels do not allow children under 12. If you plan a family vacation, it's a good idea to contact your chosen hotel in advance for information.
