Whilst the undoubted attraction of a visit to The Maldives is its isolation from the rest of the world, one of the draw-backs is the lengthy time it takes to arrive in paradise.

After your international flight touches down, LUX* North Male Atoll is just a short luxury speedboat journey away - meaning no frustrating waits for connecting domestic flights or onward seaplane transfers.

Enjoy a 60 minute scenic speedboat ride from Male’ or a 15-minute seaplane transfer, observing the Maldives from above.
