Male Airport Hotel
Male Airport Hotel or Hulhule Island Hotel to give it is proper name is the only hotel located on the same island as the airport. The airport island is next to Malé, the capital. Although the airport is known as Malé Airport (MLE) it is not on the island of Male itself. Male Airport Hotel is less than a five minutes drive from the airport and a free hotel shuttle is available around the clock. Malé is a ten minute boat trip away. Male Airport Hotel also provides guests scheduled complimentary transfers between the hotel and Male island.
Although you may not wish to stay at the airport hotel, this may happen depending on your flight arrival and departure times. Some resort islands can only be reached by seaplane, others by boat. With some resort you have the option. Seaplanes only fly during daylight hours, usually you need to arrive at the airport before 3.00pm or you won’t catch the connection and you will need to stay in to the Male Airport Hotel.
If for any reason your flight is delayed and you arrive late and miss your connection you will be looked after by the airline and booked in to the hotel, but you will not get a refund for your first night lost at your resort.
If you have a very early flight in the morning and the seaplane or boat cannot leave early enough to get you to the airport your 3 hours before, then you may need to leave your resort the day before, whilst it is still daylight. Talk to us at Mainly Maldives and we will do everything we can to avoid this happening to you, after all, you want to spend as much time on your island of choice as you can.
Note: Emirates have a flight that lands at 15.05, which will make the seaplane, barring any delay, if possible take an earlier flight, even if it is a little extra.
