If you’ve decided Ostrov Hotel is the destination for your next holiday, then you will need to know how to get there. The majority of visitors to the Maldives arrive at Velana International Airport (which is also known as Male International Airport). From there, you have three options to get to Ukulhas Island on which Ostrov Hotel is situated.
To travel like a local take the speedboat. Its fair pricing, reliability and ease-of-use make it a great option for those coming to Ukulhas. There are two journeys from Velana International Airport to Ukulhas Island every day, one at 10.30am and the next at 4pm. One-way tickets cost $50 per person for adults, $25 for children aged two to 12 years old and free for youngsters below two years old.
Those looking for a bit of luxury and speed before their Ostrov Hotel stay can take a seaplane. Although the costs are much higher than the other two options, views are breath-taking and kick off your Ukulhas stay in style.
Flights run between 6am and 4pm with a one-way ticket costing $260 for an adult. A one-way ticket for children aged between two and 12 years old cost $156, while tickets for infants under two years old are free.
For budget travelers, the public ferry is a wonderful option. Those taking this can expect a long journey (around four and a half hours) but magnificent views of the ocean.
Ferries leave Male on 9am on Mondays and Thursdays and 9.45 am on Wednesdays and Sundays. Tickets cost a very pocket-friendly $2.50 per person.
