About this Destination
The resort’s grounds cover the 107,000 m² of Funamadua island in the Gaaf-Alif Atoll in southern Maldives. Located about 60 km north of the equator, the resort is surrounded by a spectacular, almost untouched coral reef (the resort’s reef is 20 to 200 m away).
Established in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives islands are multi-faceted. The culture, traditions and customs of the country are influenced by Indian, Sri Lankan, Malaysian, Arab, Persian, Indonesian and even African influences. A fabulous cultural mix that makes all the richness of the Maldives.
The official and the most common language of Maldives, Dhivehi, or the Maldivian language has been influenced by various languages like Arabic, French, Persian, Portuguese, Hindustani, and English through the ages.
How do you say hello in Maldives?
While the more casual, informal way is frequently shortened to “Kihineh.” Asking some favour and you want to say “Please”, you say “Adhes kohfa.” “Thank you” is translated to“Shukuriyaa.” And “You're welcome” is “Maruhabaa.” in Dhivehi.
The currency of the Maldives is called the Rufiyah, which is linked to the dollar at around 12.75 Rufiyah to the dollar. However, most resorts and many local islands will accept the USdollar (bring small denominations such as $1, $5 and $10) as payment.

The Maldives has a year-round hot tropical climate. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The temperature rarely falls below 25°C (77°F).
