Hi and welcome to the forum.

At the top of the forum is a “sticky post” titled “Which Resort Island should we choose?” Perhaps you could take a look and come back to us with some answers to the questions it poses, as this will tell us a bit more about your wish list for your trip and your must have’s/nice to have’s in a resort and most importantly when you’re planning to travel, for how king and what your budget for transfers to your resort and your accommodation and meal plan is.

Do be aware that “all inclusive” in The Maldives doesn’t mean “ everything included” as is often the case in the Caribbean etc. You’re normally restricted to taking all meals at a buffet restaurant and drinks from an AI menu only, which could exclude premium brand spirits, “special” coffees such as lattes, espressos etc. Every island has its own AI plan, so it’s important to check this out and decide whether AI really is the best plan for your stay.

Once we have a better idea of your wish list, budget and time of travel we’ll be happy to make some appropriate suggestions; with well over 100 private resorts to choose from it can be pretty baffling and we’ll be delighted to point you towards resorts that tick the right boxes!
