Do I have to travel by domestic transfer?

The Robinson Maldives resort relies solely on domestic transfers for guest transfers due to the considerable distance between Malé and the Gaafu Atoll, making seaplanes currently unavailable for this route.

However, opting for a domestic transfer offers significant advantages:

  • The arrival window for your international flight is much larger with a domestic flight as they aren't limited to flying during daylight hours - like seaplanes
  • Domestic flights are more easily accessible
  • They are usually the cheaper transfer option
  • You often have the option to bring a greater quantity of luggage
