Visitors to the Maldives exotic outlying islands often leave their super luxury resorts and memories of sun-kissed beaches only to face the frustration of spending long hours at the airport waiting for their flights home.

 Now, for many, the opening of the Holiday Inn Mal has changed that. The hotel provides the perfect stopover for visitors booked on late night flights, offering gold standard accommodation and food and beverage just a short five-minute speedboat ride from the airport.

Guests departing the Maldives are required to check out of their resort island accommodation on the morning that they fly out of Mal. Due to flight schedules that often means they have to wait up to ten hours at the airport until their flight departs, which means a very abrupt end to a great holiday, said Tabatha Ramsey, General Manager and Director of Sales & Marketing of the hotel. To address this, our hotel has developed a series of day packages, allowing travelers to use the facilities of our hotel, taking away the frustration of waiting and instead providing a pleasant and relaxing end to their stay in the Maldives.

Guests have the choice of two, day packages, both with two-way airport transfers complements of the hotels own speedboat.

The Day Use Room Package, from US$165, provides room check-in 2:00pm with a late check-out at 10:30pm.

Guest rooms feature high-definition flat screen television sets with a selection of both international and local channels, an iPod docking and alarm station and spacious bathrooms with spa-inspired rain showers. WiFi connectivity is not only a standard feature of all rooms but extends throughout the entire hotel.

The Facilities Use Package at just US$75 per person provides luggage storage while guests enjoy complimentary use of the rooftop infinity swimming pool and shower facilities, and a three-course set dinner at LIME, the hotels all-day-dining restaurant.

Additional dining options include the hotels exclusive rooftop restaurant, AZUR, or the more casually appointed caf, PANINI.

Guests can also pamper themselves to a pre-travel spa treatment at the hotels Coconut Spa, which features a range of products created by Sylvie Pelta with therapeutic massage oils such as Energy, Sensation, Serenity and Harmony, designed to rejuvenate mind, body and spirit.
