The glorious islands in the Indian Ocean are open to the world again



The oceanic island cluster off the coast of India, the Republic of Maldives, has opened up its borders to accommodate tourists again. 


The Maldives expect tourism to skyrocket back to its pre-pandemic average of around 114,000 tourists a month. Since slightly opening up its borders in 2020, Maldives has welcomed over 715,000 travelers, no small number considering the distances people have to go to get there, and post-pandemic travel thawing.

Maldives is the perfect getaway for tourists seeking a luxurious and naturally-distanced island experience. Individuals can book a stay at one of the 132 resorts on one of the 26 atolls among the cluster of over 1000 islands. And the islands are perfect for anyone into the whole social distancing thing. Safety protocols are well managed and the requirements are made simple for tourists. Visitors can go an extra mile and book a stay in private overwater villas while still getting a full experience in paradise.

Tourists are itching to get a taste of travel after years of closed borders around the world. A trip to Maldives provides peace of mind for fearsome travelers because of its conceptual ‘one-island-one-resort’ program. This means each resort is housed on one of the many islands in the Republic.


It may turn out that a vacation to Maldives is exactly what Covid-weary travelers need.
