Private jet to the Maldives: fly comfortably to the wonders of the Indian Ocean
Reach the Maldives in total comfort and relax and discover all the enthralling places that this destination has to offer
The Maldives is one of the best tourist destination if you are looking for a moment to detox from work and the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
In this article, we will see the main benefits of flying by private jet and the best things to do once you've landed in this stunning paradise.
From the UK to the Maldives? Here's why you should fly by chartered plane
Considering that the flight time from London to Male is about 14 hours by commercial plane, it's normal that you would like to relax during the trip and fly comfortably.
A thing that most of scheduled airlines cannot offer you.
Foremost, since it is a very long flight, you will be obliged to have a layover – if not even a stopover! – and find accommodation for you and your family or colleagues.
If you choose to fly with us, it's you who decide when to leave and not the other way around. In fact, you can decide the date and the time that suit you best for both the outward and the return flight.
Secondly, passengers have always to get to the airport at least two hours preceding the takeoff, due to all the controls at the check-in point.
Not in this case.
Our staff will lead you to the VIP area where you will be able to pass the controls in no time and total privacy.
This is the reason why you can come at the airport just half an hour before the departure.
But there's more.
If you decide to fly by chartered plane, you can settle who you are travelling with: in other words, you won't have strangers sitting next to you for 12-14 hours.
Indeed, you can fly with your partner, family, or colleagues.
Do you want a relaxing flight? What Fast Private Jet can offer (instead of other airlines)
Early, I mentioned the fact of being relaxed during the flight.
With Fast Private Jet, it's possible.
What do I mean?
I mean that you can request specific services and extras that will turn your flight into an unforgettable experience.
Let me mention some of them:
- Beauty treatment
- Luxury suite
- Maxi TV screen and cinema effect
- Onboard chef and barman
- Catering service
In this way, you will be able to enjoy all parts of your trip, from the flight to the accommodation.
Once you have arrived at the destination, you won't lose time for disembarkation, as you will find your luggage straight after you set foot on the ground.
So, what's next?
Let me show you what you can do in the Maldives and make the most of this experience.
Looking for a relaxing trip in the Maldives? Here are ten unforgettable experiences you can do
#1 A luxury shipwreck
Almost all resorts offer the possibility of experiencing the thrill of a 'shipwreck'.
Together with your partner or family, equipped with a picnic basket (which in the most exclusive resorts might even be an actual meal), you will be 'abandoned' on a deserted, untouched island.
The dhoni that drove you to your destination will leave you to your own devices on a beach of fine white sand surrounded by a turquoise lagoon.
You can explore the island, enjoy great food, sunbathe and swim, feeling like a modern-day Robinson Crusoe.
#2 Hanifaru Bay
The most famous snorkelling site in the Maldives is this plankton-rich bay in the Baa Atoll's UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, where dozens of giant manta rays can be seen performing tricky acrobatics as they glide through the water, filtering nutrients.
On days when the water is transparent, seeing them appear in numbers is an incredible experience.
The Hanifaru site is also regularly visited by whale sharks, another species that feeds on plankton.
Resorts and inhabited islands in the vicinity organize daily excursions to Hanifaru Bay.
Seeing what lies beneath the surface of the water in the Maldives is a must.
Corals, tropical fish, sharks, turtles, and rays populate an extraordinary world that can only be best appreciated by diving.
All resorts and many guest houses have a diving school.
To put it simple, the Maldives is the perfect place to try your hand at this activity, thanks to:
- High safety standards
- State-of-the-art equipment
- Passionate and experienced instructors
- Water so warm that many don't even wear wetsuits
#4 Staying in Male
Thanks to the many guest houses that have opened recently, independent travellers now have the opportunity to discover the 'real' Maldives: you can stay on an inhabited island, meet the islanders, taste the traditional cuisine and have an experience quite different from that offered by a resort.
The best guest houses are those on secluded atolls, far from the modern atmosphere of Male, where you will be warmly welcomed by hospitable families who will take you to deserted islands for fishing, diving, and snorkelling.
#5 Relax in Maafushi
Maafushi was the first inhabited island in the Maldives to become a major tourist destination, and currently has about thirty guest houses and hotels.
One can have an economical holiday there, since the strong competition ensures low rates for accommodation, diving, snorkelling and other activities.
There is also a nice 'bikini beach', where tourists can sunbathe and swim without offending the sensibilities of the locals.
Moreover, being only two hours away from the international airport, the island is also effortless to reach.
#6 A dive with hammerhead sharks
Hammerheads, among the more bizarre-looking sea creatures, are easily spotted in the waters of the Maldives, provided you know where to look for them.
Few experiences are more exhilarating than a sunrise dive to a depth of thirty metres to observe an immense school of hungry hammerhead sharks seeking for food.
The best site for such sightings is the famous Hammerhead Point (also called Rasdhoo Madivaru) in the Rasdhoo Atoll.
#7 Swimming with a whale shark
The largest fish in the world, the whale shark, inhabits the waters of the Maldives; it can be observed particularly south of the Ari atoll and during the full moon, when the currents between the atolls are strongest.
Swimming with one of these tame giants of the sea is an exceptional experience.
On average about ten metres long (the largest measure almost 19 metres!), they are completely harmless because, despite their size, they feed exclusively on plankton.
#8 A trip by seaplane
There are few destinations where you can say that the means of transport is one of the attractions of the trip, but the reason is that there are few places in the world where you need a seaplane to reach your hotel.
In a country with no roads, these fast Twin Otters practically act as taxis, and taking off from the water is as unforgettable an experience as watching the spectacle of coral atolls, azure lagoons and deserted islets from above.
#9 Discover Male
The capital of the Maldives is undoubtedly the best place to meet the locals and get to know them.
The colourful houses, bustling markets and cosy teashops, where you can chat with islanders and share delicious short meals, are just some attractions of this unusual capital, a perfect complement to the luxurious atmosphere of the resorts.
Be sure to visit the National Museum, which presents the best overview of Maldivian history in the country, or the Old Friday Mosque, with its coral stone tombstones.
#10 Attend a boduberu show
Whether you're staying at a resort or on an inhabited island, be sure to catch a performance of boduberu, which means 'big drum' in Dhivehi, a traditional all-male drumming and dancing show.
It is an enthralling and authentic experience, even if it might seem a little contrived in a resort restaurant.
The rhythm is slow at first, then gradually increases to an incredible intensity, with the dancers almost entering a trance-like state.
