          Is it possible to reach the resort by public ferry? I can see speedboats and ferrys going to Guraidhoo but no idea how to get from there to Mahaanaelhihuraa island / the hotel. Any info anyone?? has anyone found an alternative way to the one provided by the hotel? Thanks

          Good day, We are planning to visit this resort in May for 9 days and the forecast is Tstorm, thunderstorms all 9 days ((( Just wondering what is like to experience such a bad weather on the small island? Can you expect this to be few hours raining or all day raining? does it happen anytime or mostly at night? What would guests tend to do in such weather conditions? Snorkeling and fishing tours are subject to weather condition, aren't they? Can the weather be different at male and your island or it pretty much the same? Thank you for your time to reply. Kind regards, Julia
