You do not need to be connected to the outside world at Maldives 5 star resorts because there are many activities that you can experience. Reconnect with nature and experience underwater adventures. Sign up for several dive options to one of the many beautiful reefs or go snorkelling and watch sea turtles.

Based on a study that was conducted in about 26 countries across the world, it was identified that the price of internet in Maldives is considerably higher than other countries. Ahmed Maleeh Jamaal, Minister of Science and Technology has hinted that the government is opening its doors to new companies that will provide affordable internet service to Maldives.

At present, internet services are provided by two telecom giants, Dhiraagu and Ooredoo including small company Raajje Online. Maleeh said that the government will not hesitate to welcome new competitive companies that can bring the changes that the government wants.

If opportunity is provided to new companies, there is a possibility that internet service will become more affordable for the Maldivians. It is the government’s desire to steer the sector to the right direction. The government is working with Communications Authority and the 3 internet providers to lower the costs of internet service.

The Ministry also revealed that the government is considering the needs of the Maldivians for more affordable internet costs but it is also considering the economy and how it can help small and medium enterprises. Discussions are focused on finding a middle ground that will be agreeable to all parties.

Discussions are in the final stage and the government is considering proposals based on the results of the study that identified the high costs of internet services. The Ministry has expressed its hope that internet service providers will lower their prices to create a positive change for the future.

There are many things to do at Maldives 5 star resorts aside from relaxing in comfort and enjoying the breathtaking views. You can sip cocktails at one of the Sunset Villas or swim in the private pool. You can also be adventurous by joining overnight cruises in a luxury yacht and castaway picnics at an uninhabited neighbouring island.
