Most Maldives hotels offer free cancellation. Consider booking refundable hotels rather than non-refundable ones. Just look for the ‘free cancellation’ message during your hotel search. Prices can vary, but right now we believe that flexibility matters.

Many Maldives festivals revolve around the Islamic faith. If you’re visiting in August, join the locals in celebrating the famous Eid al-Adha, which follows the completion of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.
