Our resorts are ready to welcome you When we’re allowed to visit Maldives
So, what changes can you expect ?
Firstly, to enter Maldives all arrivals must hold a Covid Negative PCR Certificate issued no later than 96 hrs prior to arrival. In resort, all facilities remain operational, however, each resort may introduce a reduction in operational hours based on occupancy. Each Resort has introduced :
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitisation procedures in line with Government protocols.
- Social distancing measures in place in all public areas.
- Enhanced cleaning and sanitisation of all guest Villas. Guests villas will be kept vacant for 24 hours prior to the next guests arrival.
- Seating arrangements in restaurants adjusted in line with social distancing rules.
- All staff will wear face masks and have undergone 14 day quarantine in their return to work in the resorts.
- All staff have undergone Covid Heath & Safety training as implemented by the Government of Maldives.
- To return to Ireland a Negative PCR certificate is also required. This can be arranged in resort for clients at a reduced rate of USD$50-$60 per person depending on resort.
Whilst here in Ireland, our government has implemented a travel ban, which we feel is disproportionate given the factual number of confirmed travel related cases, Tourism in Maldives is currently back to 60% of pre-covid levels.
Once the travel ban is lifted, Maldives will be one of the most sought after holiday destinations, especially for the Honeymoon sector, many of whom have had to postpone their wedding plans during this pandemic.
With daytime temperatures of 32C and night time temperatures 27C year round, the focus is on AL FRESCO dining ( weather permitting ). In addition, all bars have extended their outdoor areas, thus reducing risk during this pandemic. Maldives has had a low infection rate compared to most other countries and with government protocols and covid negative entry requirements, Maldives is one of the safest tourist destinations to visit.
