Maldives Resorts with Speedboat Transfer | The Honeymoon Guide
Estimated reading time: 18 minutes

Are you ready to jet off to paradise but not so keen on hopping onto another flight after landing at Maldives‘ Malé International Airport?

Well, you’re in luck! We’re diving into the crystal-clear waters of the Maldives, but forget the seaplanes and domestic flights — today, it’s all about that speedboat glam with our best Maldives resorts with speedboat transfer!

Picture this: You’ve just touched down in Malé, and instead of boarding another flight, you’re whisked away on a speedboat that zips through the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.

We’re talking about resorts in the North Male Atoll and South Male Atoll that are just a quick, scenic boat ride away from the airport.

Sure, you could take a domestic flight to another atoll and then hop on a speedboat, but why add extra steps when you can start your dream honeymoon the minute you step off the plane?

So, buckle up (or should we say, ‘life-jacket up’?) as we sail through our top picks for Maldives resorts with speedboat transfers!

Pros and cons of Maldives Resorts with speedboat transfer

There are many reasons to choose a Maldives speedboat transfer. They’re less expensive than a seaplane transfer, making it a budget-friendly choice. 

A Maldives speedboat transfer is faster. You don’t have to wait around the airport like you sometimes have to with a seaplane and you’re on your island resort in anywhere from 10 to 75 minutes.

They’re ideal for couples who have travelled from further afar and for those with a fear of flying.

Unlike seaplanes, speedboats can operate at night, offering more flexibility for arrival and departure times.

The luggage allowance on a seaplane is limited (usually around 20kg) whereas you can match your Maldives speedboat transfer luggage allowance with your airline luggage allowance if it’s higher.

However, there are some cons too. 

A seaplane is a quintessential Maldives experience and although you will get a taste of the view of the islands as you fly in on your international flight, it’s not quite the same as the stunning aerial views of the atolls and reefs from a seaplane.

Plus, landing on the water is a lot of fun and there aren’t many destinations in the world where you can do this.

Speedboats are practical for resorts relatively close to the airport. However, if you suffer from seasickness, it might be uncomfortable.

If you are staying on an island that is very close to the airport and the capital, Male you can often see the tankers and other ships cruising by.

While many couples and other travellers stay in the resorts close to the airport and have a wonderful time, sea traffic dilutes that castaway desert island ambiance that the Maldives is famous for (and that you’re paying big bucks for!).

To sidestep this, consider choose an island at least 20 minutes away.

Resorts close to the airport are great if you want a few days of relaxation to recover from jet lag, are arriving later, travelling on a tighter budget or if you want to do a two centre Maldives honeymoon.

The good news is that there are some beautiful resorts for every budget, from affordable to incredibly lavish for couples seeking Maldives resorts with speedboat transfer!
