Discussion on Ari Atoll

Michael H :

Heard there is a seasonal weather pattern. Is it anything to get concerned over?

"Yupp...When you ultimately plan to travel you should actually know the best time to visit Maldives. This trip to Maldives depends upon the seasonal climate and weather of Maldives. However, Maldives with its sugary white beaches, lush vegetation, pristine lagoons and serene Atolls, remain exotic and mysterious all the time. But before you seek to know the best time to visit Maldives, you should know whether you prefer the warm and sunny summers or the cool and wet rainy seasons. Climate of Maldives To decide for the best time to visit Maldives, you should know the climate of the place. The climate of Maldives is tropical, which means hot, humid and dry weather. Maldives is basically dominated by the monsoons. The islands get rainfall from July to August due to southwest monsoon and from November to March due to northeast monsoons. Visit Maldives during summer season So if you are looking for some extra hours of fun in the sun, then you should visit Maldives during the months of December to April, which are dry seasons. This is high time season for the resorts and hotels as they enjoy great demands at these times. If you want to visit Maldives during the summers, you should book the resort from your hometown through online or phone and then visit Maldives to experience the best time. Visit Maldives during the winter season The winters are pleasant with sunny weather and cool ambience. Christmas is the busiest and best time to visit Maldives. You can enjoy land sports like beach volleyball, board games, sauna and table tennis. However, the time between May and November is also a best time to visit Maldives as the skies remains cloudy, humidity remains high and there are more chances of rainfall. This is the best time for divers and snorkel-lovers to visit Maldives. As there is increased water clarity and better visibility for divers, so the water sports like jet-skiing, windsurfing, diving and snorkeling can give an amazing experience to all tourists. Hope this helps."

"In July/August the South Ari Atoll will be great. The Hilton on Rangali Island and Angaga Island Resorts are wonderful. If you get some weather it will be rain for 2 hours during the day then the sun comes out -- that just becomes the time to go to the spa. Be sure to take your snorkel and mask."
Paul Seaton :

If so, I'd love some ideas to surprise my fiance when we go for our honeymoon...excursionsto other islands, local jewellry boutiques, etc...that sort of thing. Much appreciated

kayak_number_12 :
"I had mixed reviews from friends who spend 7 days there. Take a look at TripAdvisor -- they confirm it is difficult to get a great room. The seaplane is tricky since it must fly during the day so you may have long waits at the airport. Also, at Vilu Reef the scuba is by boat not directly from the island. That will add time and cost to your dives. My suggestion would be to consider in advance what activities you want to be doing ... snorkel, scuba, Tuna fishing, swim the ocean, swim the pool. The jewelery boutiques are few and many of the shells or Shark bits are illegal to bring home. You would be better off doing the shopping in Dubai. I would find a resort with more private space for a honeymoon -- but I have only had one honeymoon so I may not be an expert. Just my suggestions. Remember the Maldives is wonderful, you will not be disappointed in the beauty of the country."

"Look for a resort island where they offer honeymooners trips to a smaller island where the couple can have a whole island for themselves for a day or two."

Pay a visit to the "heaven on earth". The Maldives are what you are looking for if you still haven't been on vacation.
