Welcome to Paradise Island

Paradise Island

The aptly-named Paradise Resort is located on North Malé Atoll, less than six miles (10km) from the airport. The resort, referred to locally as Lankanfinolhu, is very small, as the entire island is only 3,200 feet (1km) long and 750 feet (230m) wide. The resort uses the space well though, and offers activities like squash and volleyball, and watersports and scuba diving in the crystal-clear waters. Paradise Island also has a spa and three restaurants serving Japanese, Italian, and Western cuisine, and a 24-hour bar with a disco.

Information & Facts

Dhivehi is the national language in Maldives. English is widely spoken in addition to German, French, Italian and Japanese, spoken by the resort staff.

The Maldivian Rufiya (MVR) is divided into 100 laari. The resorts in Maldives are generally expensive and travellers should ensure they bring sufficient funds. There are no cash machines and travellers' cheques are rarely used, but there are currency exchange facilities available at resorts and banks. Major credit cards are accepted at most resorts and hotels. US Dollars can be exchanged at the airport, banks or hotels. Guests staying at resorts can settle their accounts in hard foreign currency (US Dollars are best), credit cards or travellers cheques. Banks are usually closed on Fridays and Saturdays.
