Your transfer will be arranged either with your travel agent or directly with your resort.

The method of transfer depends on the distance of your resort from Male. For islands nearer Male speedboat transfers are the least expensive option. For greater distances resorts may offer a domestic flight transfer, which involves a flight to another airport in one of the atolls with the journey to resort completed by boat, or a seaplane transfer where the flight lands in the ocean at your resort. The seaplane is the most expensive option.

Your chosen resort will price the transfer for your, as will your travel agent if you're using one.

The cheapest transfer will probably be a domestic flight to the SAA and then speed boat. A sea plane is definitely less hassle but more expensive.

You need to contact your agent or the resort to book your transfer.

If you're staying at a resort on a private island (as opposed to a guesthouse in a village in an inhabited island) then there's no public transport you can use. You'll need to book your transfers through the resort on the method they suggest.

If you're staying in a guesthouse, then you can use a public ferry to get there, but check the timetable: most islands only have one ferry a day and there are no ferries at all on Fridays.
