Flight path from Johannesburg to the Maldives

A top rated spot in the Maldives is the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, on the South Male Atoll, with its lagoon views & some rooms have pools on their terraces. If you select a deluxe lagoon villa (directly over the water) choose an odd-numbered unit which is not facing Male. Do go snorkelling & jet skiing.

Top review

Denise and Chad landed in Malé for an adventure in the Maldives: "Being handed a landing card also provided us with some interesting facts. For example, did you know that materials deemed contrary to Islam, including "idols for worship" and "bibles" are illegal? Before arriving I had no idea the country was 100% Islamic...We walked around trying to find some traditional Maldivian breakfast, but as it is often like in Sri Lanka, these local shops were filled with men and I just wasn't comfortable enough to walk in...It was GORGEOUS ... every morning we woke up and had breakfast with a view of the gleaming turquoise waters and bright white sand...Day two took us to Biyadhoo Island Resort where we could freely drink and sun tan in bikinis. Yes, those are also restrictions in this Islamic country. Being ultra-conservative, alcohol is illegal except on resort islands along with women wearing bikinis."
