Every moment in the Maldives is woven with threads of sun, sea, and soulful experiences. But before you surrender to the laidback magic of Nova Maldives, here are some Maldives travel tips that every discerning traveller should know.

  1. Best Time to Visit:

The Maldives offers year-round allure, but for those seeking endless sunshine, December to April promises clear skies. However, if you’re a keen diver or surfer, the monsoon months, from May to October, bring their own brand of charm with richer marine life and rolling waves.

  1. Packing for Paradise:

Nova, with its laidback shores, encourages you to embrace island living. Lightweight clothing, a good sunblock, a wide-brimmed hat, and your favourite book are essential. While swimsuits are perfect for the beaches, remember to pack modest clothing if you’re planning on local island visits.

  1. Currency & Connectivity:

While the Maldivian Rufiyaa is the official currency, Nova also accepts US dollars and major international credit cards for your payment. As for connectivity, rest assured, that while you’ll feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle, you’ll always be just a click away from your loved ones with our seamless Wi-Fi.

  1. Dive into Maldivian Waters:

The underwater world of the Maldives is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. Even if you’re not PADI certified, Nova offers beginner courses to help you plunge into the deep blue. And for those already in love with the ocean, our Aquaholics team promises unparalleled underwater adventures.

  1. Respect Local Customs:

The Maldives is a proud nation with deep-rooted traditions. When visiting local islands or interacting with Maldivian artisans at Nova, remember to respect local customs. A simple gesture, like greeting with “Assalaamu Alaikum,” can forge heartfelt connections.

  1. Sustainable Travel:

Nova is deeply committed to the environment. We urge our soulful travellers to tread lightly, making conscious choices during their stay. Whether it’s using reef-safe sunscreens, participating in coral replantation activities, or choosing eco-friendly water sports, every little step counts.

  1. Exploring Beyond:

Nova offers more than just a picturesque retreat; it’s a gateway to the heart of Maldivian culture. Check out our weekly Holhuashi event, visit neighbouring islands, or simply chat with our team members (our very own soulmates!) to unravel the tales that weave the fabric of the Maldives.
