During much of the past year, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused many holidays to be cancelled or postponed leaving the travel industry in turmoil across the globe.
The far-flung island nation of the Maldives however, has been a success story amongst holiday destinations during the chaos of the coronavirus outbreak.
Those who are desperate for a well-earned escape but are hesitant about whether it is safe to travel will feel reassured with the measures in place in the Maldives.
The Maldives’ government was quick to establish rigorous screening and medical protocols as well as resort procedures to keep visitors and staff members safe.
The unique ‘one island, one resort’ set up, along with the spacious outdoor lifestyle, makes social distancing natural, even in non-covid times!
Pre-holiday and on-arrival testing, as well as standard quarantine for any arriving team members, keeps the resort islands a safe place to be. Once at the resort, guests enjoy all the usual freedoms of a holiday in paradise – snorkelling, scuba diving, water sports and more, secure in the knowledge that their safety is the Maldives’ top priority.
The World Travel and Tourism Council’s ‘Safe Travels Stamp’ was awarded to the Maldives in September 2020 in recognition of the measures taken in making it a safe and enjoyable destination – quite an achievement for a small island nation in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
The Maldives has shown the world how, despite a world health pandemic it is possible to continues to be a popular and safe holiday destination.
After a year of lockdowns, restrictions and worry it’s time to look forward, embrace the hope of the vaccination program and enjoy freedom again – never has there been a time when a holiday in the sun was more needed!
