How to get to the Radisson Blu Resort Maldives

Huruelhi Island, Alifu Dhaalu Atoll, Maldives

Situated on the private island of Huruelhi, our resort hotel can be reached by a seaplane journey from Velana International Airport (MLE), also known as Malé International Airport, or a domestic flight from the MLE airport to Villa Airport Maamigili (VAM), followed by a speedboat ride to the resort. Additional charges apply for the transfers. Please contact the resort reservations department at least five days prior to your arrival to arrange your preferred mode of transfer.

From Velana International Airport (MLE)

By seaplane transfer:

Seaplanes operate during daylight hours between 6 am and 3:30 pm. For arrival, we can arrange seaplane transfer for international flights landing at Velana International Airport (MLE) before 3:30 pm. For departure, we can arrange seaplane transfer for international flights departing from the airport after 9:00 am. All times are in local time.

To arrange your seaplane transfer, please let us know at least five days in advance. Provide us with the complete name of the guest(s) traveling as per the passport, the gender and age of any children, and your arrival and departure details (international arrival and departure flight numbers, name of the hotel that you will be staying at before or after your stay with us, and so on).

The pick-up and drop-off point for the transfer is the MLE airport, and you will need to return to the MLE airport for your transfer to the resort if you are already at another place in the Maldives before your arrival to our resort.

The exact seaplane timings can only be confirmed the evening before your scheduled arrival or departure because seaplanes are operated by a third-party company that prepares the schedule the evening before your travel to and from the resort. The resort is not responsible for any supplementary charges incurred due to seaplane transfer being canceled by the service provider.

When you have arrived at Velana International Airport (MLE), our Airport Team will welcome you, help you check in for your seaplane transfer to the resort, and escort you to our arrival-only airport lounge, where you can relax and wait in a peaceful atmosphere. The waiting time for the seaplane transfer is approximately two hours from the time of check-in and is dependent on airline operations and weather conditions. Since this is a shared seaplane transfer, occasionally the seaplane may stop at other destinations while en route to and from our beautiful island. The seaplane journey takes approximately 30 minutes each way.

The shared seaplane transfer fee is USD 450 per adult (age 12 years and above), USD 225 per child (ages between 2 and 11 years), and complimentary for infants (age below 2 years) sitting on a parent’s lap for the round trip.
