Transfer Fees from Male Airport to Resorts

Ultimate bucket list item:  The Maldives.  We all know that it is expensive to stay in the Maldives and it is just as expensive to travel to the Maldives.  There's one expense that I have been seeing that most travelers don't anticipate and don't consider before booking their flight:  Transfer costs from Male Airport to their resort.

There is always transportation from the airport to your hotel or resort no matter where you travel, but, the transfer prices in the Maldives can leave you with sticker shock.  Despite the prices, it is well worth experiencing this part of the Earth, even if it's a once-in-a-lifetime trip. 

Following are fees to some of the most popular Maldives resorts.
