Updated January 2023. Note that at time of writing, the Maldives no longer has a pre-travel COVID-19 testing requirement, although travelers must complete the Maldivian Traveler Declaration Form within the 96 hours prior to their flight departing to and departing from the Maldives. Note that your passport must be machine readable and have at least one month's validity, you must have pre-booked your hotel accommodation and have sufficient funds for your intended period of stay, you must have a confirmed airline ticket for return to your home country or for onward travel, and travelers from certain African and South American countries must present a yellow fever vaccination certificate.
The Maldives are our favorite luxury water villa destination, thanks to the destination's long-time focus on luxury, experiential travel with an emphasis on great amenities and service, rather than cookie cutter cheap holidays. New resorts have further raised the bar. For 2023 these are the top 10 Maldives luxury resort offers:
1. Cheval Blanc Randheli: Stay 7, Pay 5 + Summer Delight Offer
