  4. Hotels with seaplane transfer in Maldives: 15 resorts

Many Maldives hotels can only be reached by air: they are located far from Velana International Airport. In this case, seaplanes come to the rescue, which can take off from the surface of the ocean and land on the water. This is the most expensive transport in the Maldives, but also the most unusual. And the views that open up during the flight are breathtaking!

Often hotels located nearby or along the route jointly rent a plane. So tourists are provided with a group transfer, and the seaplane makes several stops on its way. You can also order a private seaplane, but its cost can be $ 16 thousand in two directions. As a rule, in addition to the seaplane, the tourist has the opportunity to choose a transfer by boat or domestic airlines to the atoll.
