FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Yes, 18+. All retreat attendees must be over the age of 18 for legal reasons.

♥  DO I NEED TO ARRANGE A VISA?

No. Maldives supplies a Free Visas On Arrival to all nationalities, subject to tourists being able to produce a confirmed reservation for each night of their intended stay, as well as a departing flight. You may be required to produce these to immigration upon entry into Maldives – Indulge Maldives will supply you with the correct documents.

♥  WILL I NEED ANY EXTRA SPENDING MONEY? 

Our aim is to make this Maldives surf retreat as inclusive as possible. You may need extra spending money for things such as additional excursions, snacks or souvenirs.

♥ WHERE CAN I PURCHASE ALCOHOL?

As Maldives is a 100% Sunni Islamic country, meaning alcohol is prohibited except on resort islands. We have planned a resort day trip with an all inclusive drinks pass for you. There is currently a floating bar boat off Thulusdhoo Island. We cannot guarantee if it will be there in March, but if it is, you can take a USD$10 transfer & purchase alcoholic beverages on board for USD$6-15 per drink.

♥  WHAT IS THE MAIN CURRENCY USED IN MALDIVES?

The main currencies used in Maldives are US Dollars & Maldivian Rufiya. On local islands, Maldivian Rufiya or USD is required to purchase items like souvenirs, snacks and extra activities & watersports. You can simply withdraw local currency from an ATM upon your arrival at the airport, at the ATM at Thulusdhoo Island, or you can exchange your cash at the airport.

♥  WILL SOMEONE GREET ME AT THE AIRPORT?

Yes! From the moment you first arrive in Maldives you will experience our airport greeting service and will take a group private charter speedboat to our accommodation. Upon departure, we will return with you to the airport to ensure a smooth departure process.

♥  IS THERE A RESTRICTION ON SURFBOARD SIZES?

No, however it is important to double check with your airline carrier. We encourage you to pack your surf boards very securely with lots of extra padding to prevent them being damaged upon your arrival in Maldives.

♥  HOW MUCH FREE TIME IS THERE?

Most days there will be scheduled free time. This is an opportunity for you to engage in extra surfing, explore the island on your own terms, laze on the Bikini Beach, read a book or take an additional excursion.

♥  AS MALDIVES IS A MUSLIM COUNTRY, DO I NEED TO DRESS MODESTLY?

As we will be staying on a local island, it is important to dress in accordance with Ministry of Tourism laws. This means a little modestly when moving through the village section of an island. We recommend packing 1-2 long skirts or dresses & 1-2  t-shirts, along with your normal casual day wear.

♥  CAN I DRINK THE WATER IN MALDIVES?

No, not unless you like drinking salt water! The hotel will provide drinking water. It’s also easy to purchase extra water bottles from local shops, for around 30c for 1L. If you have a refillable drink bottle, this would be especially ideal to bring to help reduce our plastic impact during the retreat!
