However some of you may not want to leave it to chance, and I can’t blame you for that either! After all, we all just have to treat ourselves a little every now and then – why not do it in style? I’ve put together a few little tips to help you with booking a place here for yourself (and save a few pennies while doing it!).
Getting to the Robinson Club Maldives
You can fly to the Maldives from nearly all UK airports, but none of them will unfortunately be direct. Depending where you fly from there will be either one or two stopovers along the way – check with Skyscanner to see what routes are possible from each airport. UK residents with a valid passport can obtain a free 30 day visa upon arrival to the Maldives, provided you also have a valid return ticket and sufficient funds with you as well. For all the information you need about entry requirements and travel advice, just pop over to the Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s website, where they’ve put together a fantastic summary.
It takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes for the transfer from Malé International Airport to the Robinson Club, which involves a 70 minute domestic flight to Kadhedhoo and a 30 minute speedboat ride. You’ll be able to discuss transfers with the hotel in advance before your arrival.
Booking with the Robinson Club Maldives
It’s possible to book directly through their website, but for the best deals you should definitely head over to Trivago, where they’ll compare different travel websites to give you the best prices. You’ll be able to make some great savings, so be sure to check regularly!
