Welcome to the forum. All of summer is the wet season in the Maldives so expect a mix of weather.

Why do you wish to stay close to Male? There are better resorts than Paradise island in the same price range. What has attracted you to just that one?

Hi

The summer months in the Maldives is January to April if you visit in August expect unsettled weather.

May I ask who has recommend paradise island ? This is an island that I wouldn't visit personally.

Hi lynphd

Thanks for the quick reply

First the travel time for Ireland ,it about 18 hours

I was thinking I nice short boat trip

Don't fancy an other hour are so on a seaplane , but if you go that far you mind as well go that bit further

To be honest I've only started looking the last few days and paradise island looks good has great reviews

But definitely open to any suggestions

I see the temp is up around the 30 in august but I'm guessing you can get quite a bit of rainfall as well

The temperature is the same all year, it is the rainfall, wind and storms which pick up in the wet season. As Darryl says that is approx end April through to end Dec.

I say around 1800 Euro for 7 nights

Was looking at Booking.com and there's seams to be a good choice for that price range

That was Aug though am I a bit daft going in august 😕

Be careful with the likes of booking.com and ensure that all taxes are included in the price quoted and transfers are costed, too. The Maldives have pretty hefty goods and services taxes totalling 23.2% plus a green tax of $6 USDper person per night. Also any food and beverages not included in your chosen meal plan and any excursions etc will also attract 23.2% taxes on top of the published prices normally indicated by ++. Most forum members will get quotes from recommended agents. If you look at the Top Questions on the right hand side of the page on the main Maldives forum there is a link to information on them.

Can I just clarify that you have 1600€ per room plus another 1600€ for extras = 3200€?
