Solo travel

Hi, I'm going to Sri Lanka in Dec-Jan. As I'm close to Maldives I really want to go... Maybe for 4-5 nights. Is it okay for solo as know it has a reputation for couples? I just want to relax, read, swim, dive and have a massage. Can anyone recommend a place for solo travelers?

Thank you in advance!

Yes, there's no reason why single travellers shouldn't enjoy a trip to the Maldives.

For anyone to be able to recommend a suitable resort for you, you'd need to give an idea of your budget in US dollars per night and what that should include.

Thank you for your reply. I'm more concerned about a resort not being all honeymooners than budget

Given resorts vary from a couple of hundred to 30,000 USD per night, the budget is absolutely key to making any recommendations.

Please don't reply if cant answer my question. Clearly I am not looking for $30000 if on my own. Again, my question asked for resorts that may have solo travelers.

Actually it is not clear how much you would spend. Anyone on this forum who is willing to advise you will ask the same question as Mike and Kat and being rude will not attract much help.

So, once again, what is your approximate budget for your trip not including international flights?

How am I supposed to know if you're looking to spend 30k a night without you telling me? Some people spend that, some people might find 1k a night outrageous. We're all different, hence the question.

We're all willing to help, but I suggest you remove that chip from your shoulder and enable us to help you.

In order to offer relevant suggestions we need to know approximately what your budget is. We'd be wasting both your and our time by just randomly reeling off a very long list of resorts.

We aren't being awkward, we're asking so we can help you.

I have thought about going solo to the Maldives so tend to keep an eye out for resorts that may work for someone traveling on their own. Suggest you look first at some of the larger islands like Kurumba, Kuramathi, Reethi Beach, Meeru. All these are lower mid priced and have (I think) a mix of families, couples and friend gruops. However, when I visited a very small island (Gangehi) there was a solo traveller who appeared to be having a great time so don't eclude smaller islands. I also remember a post or reveiw from a solo traveller to Embudu (cheaper budget island speedboat from airport) who recommended that for solo ttraveller . I would suggest that the experts on the forum would be able to give you a much better answer if you could at least give a ball park figure for accommodation cost and an indication as to how important snorkeling may be to you (presumably not v important given you didnt mention it). If you don't want to share this info I suggest you use a site like travebag to find islands suiting your budget and then look on Tripadvisor as to how many solos have posted reviews. Finally, if it is this year you are going you have left it rather late and may not get your first choice anyway. Enjoy it when you get there, its heaven on earth!
