You have booked a holiday at the Maldives’ resort that has been stealing your dreams for a long time, and it is now finally happening! You’re practically at home on our Instagram profile, so there is absolutely no reason for a pre-travel panic – or is there? Travelling to the Maldives is all fun and games until it comes to… packing. What will you wear to feel the most comfortable and at the same time shine in all your holidaymaking glory?
Hurawalhi has you covered with a handy rundown of how to dress while at the resort to help you breeze through the packing so you have more time to build your holiday itinerary in the Hurawalhi App!
Our resort upholds a tropical casual dress code:
You can expect air temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year (we wrote about the very best time to visit here), so lightweight, loose-fitting wear is suitable for our Equatorial climate. You will spend a lot of time outside, so the ladies will want to pack a few swimsuits, summer dresses and tops. A sarong or some sort of a cover-up is a great idea too for when you are walking around the resort, go to the bar or for meals.
Men mostly wear shorts and light T-shirts or shirts. For your convenience and that of other guests, wet bathing suits and going to the restaurants and bars topless is considered inappropriate.
The sun in the Maldives is harsh; UV-protection shirts, sun hats/caps and plenty of sunblock are a must, especially during water sports, boat excursions, snorkelling or when lazying by the pool. Be sure to bring a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes.
Embrace Hurawalhi’s natural bliss by going barefoot at least a little bit to feel the soft sand between your toes, but do bring a pair of flip flops or flat sandals as the sand and wooden flooring do get very hot. High heels may prove to be in inconvenience.
Bring a pair of sneakers to be able to enjoy the resort’s sports facilities, such as the gym, tennis, badminton and football.
Note that nudity is prohibited at the resort; to be culturally sensitive, we also ask you to wear clothes that cover shoulders and knees when joining excursions to local islands.
Evenings in the Maldives are warm, it rarely gets so chilly that you would need to wear a jumper, however if there is a breeze, a light long sleeve for men, and a light shawl for the women should do. Men often wear tailored shorts or lightweight pants with T-shirts or short-sleeved, button-down shirts. Women can also be seen wearing tailored shorts, nicer tops, skirts or light dresses.
There is no need to be dressed to the nines at any of the resort’s venues, but as a holiday at Hurawalhi Maldives is somehow special, you are welcome to show off that nice dress/shirt you bought for the occasion and enjoy your time on the island in a chic island style.
