Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort
Upon my fourth trip to the Maldives, I decided to do something different by booking a resort further away from Male. After arriving in Male, I had to take a one hour flight to The Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort (click here) which is located in the waters of Gaafu Alifu Atoll. I reserved the over the water villa at a decent rate (if you book in advance). I booked a solo boat trip so I could go out and fly my drone. The property was amazing with great hospitality. The restaurants were all superb and the bars offered hookah.
