The Maldives is where hours feel like moments and days shimmer like fleeting sunbeams. Amidst this soulful escape, one question often lingers in the minds of many: “How long should I spend in the Maldives?” At Nova Maldives, we’re here to help you find that perfect rhythm.

  1. The Short & Sweet Escape (3-5 Days)

A short stay can be rejuvenating for those looking to dip their toes into tropical wonders. Over a few days at Nova, revel in the laidback luxury of an over-water villa, savour the culinary delights at Soul Kitchen, or dive into the lagoons for a glimpse of the vibrant marine life. This is the perfect teaser, giving you just enough memories to yearn for more.

  1. Immersive Island Experience (7-10 Days)

Most travellers find a week to ten days ideal to truly immerse themselves in the Maldivian rhythm. Explore diverse islands, each with its unique charm, or engage in wellness experiences at Eskape Spa. Adventure out on excursions like dolphin watching and sunset fishing trips, before soaking up the island’s slow-paced vibe for the rest of your stay.

  1. The Ultimate Getaway (14 Days and Beyond)

For those who wish to truly disconnect and lose themselves on our shores, a longer stay is a gift to the soul. Dive deeper, both figuratively and literally, exploring underwater treasures like manta rays and whale sharks. Nurture real connections with both fellow travellers and locals, absorbing tales, traditions, and the warmth of Maldivian culture. Try out every culinary gem Nova offers and find your favourite sunset spot. 

While these are general guidelines, the real answer lies in what your soul seeks. Some come for a weekend of romance, while others seek month-long solace.
