How to reach the resort from Male Airport?

One of the items that are convenient about the Waldorf Astoria Maldives is that it is often reached by speedboat from Male Airport, so you don’t need to take a flight, which sure is convenient.

Initially, the roundtrip transfer cost USD 370 plus a 23.2% tax and repair charge. Because it seems, that was an error, and therefore the hotel is really charging USD 350 one-way plus a 23.2% tax and repair charges for transfers between the airport and hotel.

So a roundtrip boat transfer for the 30-minute ride will cost USD 862 approximately.

Compared to other resorts, this resort offers roundtrip speedboat transfers at a slightly higher price but this is completely matched by its beautiful view during the ride.
