The past year hasn’t been the best. COVID-19 came with many restrictions, including closed borders. Luckily, some of our favorite travel destinations are now available. But of course, we should take all the required measures and precautions to bring the risks of spreading the virus to the minimum.
We have had the chance to spend a beautiful holiday in the Hurawalhi Island Resort, the Maldives. I will tell you all about our experience on the island. But first, you need to know how we managed to travel to the Maldives during COVID-19.
Traveling to the Maldives During COVID-19
The Maldives reopened its borders for visitors in summer 2020. So, those eager to see the picture-perfect beaches and crystal clear waters of the Maldives can now visit it so long as they test negative for COVID-19. The proof of not being a carrier of the virus is a must if you want to travel to the Maldives as it is with almost all countries at present.
So, this is exactly what we did. We took a COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to our flight to the Maldives. Luckily, we tested negative. To be on the safe side, we also got travel medical insurance. This is an optional step. However, medical coverage is always good when traveling outside your home country, especially now. The resorts are focused on enhanced cleaning, hygiene, and safety practices. And so long as the hotel areas are disinfected and the visitors follow the requirements, traveling to the Maldives is safe. You can get a PCR test done at the resort if you feel unwell.
When traveling during COVID-19, we recommend making a document checklist. Aside from the visas and passports, make sure to take the negative test results and travel health insurance documents if you have those. The hotels take precautions against the spread of the virus. In most Maldives hotels people don’t leave the area of the resort anyway. This makes things a lot easier.
After a lot of consideration and research, the hotel of our choice was Hurawalhi Island Resort. We booked the flights and the hotel for as many nights as needed.
Hurawalhi Island Resort – Everything You Should Know
The Maldives is the perfect couples’ destination. The over-water villas and walks on the private beaches won’t leave you asking for more. With this being said, the Maldives is also a great holiday destination for families. Whoever you choose to spend your holidays with in the Maldives, the most important part is finding a top-quality hotel to stay in.
Hurawalhi Island Resort is a perfect choice if you are after an unforgettable travel experience in the Maldives. This 90-villa resort is located on a gorgeous private island. The Indian ocean is at your feet and the magnificent sunset seems to be within the reach of your hands. The luxury service and accommodations make the experience complete.
Private Beach and Over-Water Villas
Over-water villas are one of the first things that come to mind when thinking about a relaxing holiday in the Maldives. Hurawalhi Island Resort has impeccable over-water villas. And one simply can’t resist the temptation to stay in these villas. Staying over turquoise water, having a prime ocean view, and the chance to gaze at the sunset is something I thought we shouldn’t miss. Where if not in the Maldives you should choose to stay in an over-water villa?
Hurawalhi Island Resort is adult-only. So, you can’t travel with children below 15. However, if you are traveling with a big family, it would be more convenient to settle in a beach villa. For couples, the over-water villas are surely a better choice. It is always possible to spend time on the island but living over the ocean for a few days is a not-to-be-missed opportunity.
If you think that your activities on Hurawalhi Island Resort will be limited to swimming, watching the sunset, and seeing things around the island, you are mistaken. There is much more the island has to offer.
First, you can engage in such water activities as kayaking, snorkeling, and windsurfing. There is also a range of on-land activities for people staying on the island. There are tennis and volleyball courts, a soccer field, fitness and spa centers in the resort. If you are interested in fishing, a fishing trip to test your luck in the waters of the Indian Ocean is something you will certainly enjoy.
Second, if you are a fan of fancy dining, can enjoy a breathtaking dinner at the undersea restaurant of Hurawalhi resort. This is the largest undersea restaurant in the world and is 5.8 meters below Hurawalhi Maldives. Not only will this restaurant provide you with an exceptional gastronomic experience but will also allow you to enjoy the spectacular underwater world. If you ever want to have a private dinner under the stars, you can have that too at Hurawalhi Island Resort.
Lastly, if you are traveling with your significant other, the Hurawalhi Island Resort has to offer such bonding experiences as a romantic escape to the isolated Dream Island. This romantic excursion will make you feel like you are in a movie. Sailing on a luxurious yacht for a few hours and even for an entire day will add to your memories from your unforgettable holidays in the Maldives.

HURAWALHI ISLAND RESORT MALDIVES
Hurawalhi is an ideal travel destination. It was an incredible experience and I even almost cried when we were leaving the island. I can’t wait to revisit this place as one can never get enough of this tropical paradise, especially in such a high-standard resort as Hurawalhi. I’m endlessly grateful for being able to travel to the Maldives in such unprecedented times. Our trip to the Maldives simply saved the year spent in lockdowns.
