As you might have read or heard, the Government in the Maldives has imposed a three-week state of emergency, commencing on the 6th February.
This is as a result of a long-running dispute between various political factions within the Maldives. See https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/maldives for the official UK Government travel advice.
The political unrest is essentially focused on the island of Male, somewhere with no or little interest to most tourists and is hardly visited. The international airport is located on the adjacent island Hulhule, and again is strictly a transit point.
As all of the resort islands are totally self-contained, with usually a one hotel per island policy, international clients will not be adversely affected by these internal political issues. The UK travel advice contains some sensible advice on not discussing or becoming involved in political debate, but why would you when there are so many wonderful distractions to occupy you.
We will adhere to the travel advice of the UK Government, but at this stage, we see no reason for you to be concerned. This advice is essential as a courtesy and to counteract some alarmist news you might see or hear elsewhere – frowns sell news more than smiles, unfortunately.
