White sandy beaches, glistening turquoise waters, oceanfront huts, and luxury resorts make up this pretty island country in South Asia. As a Muslim, wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy this while still having your religious needs taken care of?
The Maldives is a popular destination — not just for honeymooners but also for Muslim couples and families. After all, Islam is the official religion here, with the majority of the population being Muslims. In the past few years, the country has invested more in Islamic tourism to attract Muslims from all over the world to experience a halal island escape here.
It’s no wonder then that finding halal food in this country isn’t a mission, with plenty of Maldivian resort islands offering halal food or a fully-tailored halal experience. While there are no official halal resorts in the Maldives, every resort can accommodate Muslim customers through customized booking packages. This is where Go Ocean comes in!
The Maldives is one of the most halal-friendly island destinations in the world, offering delicious halal food and an unforgettable Muslim experience. The country boasts more than 1190 islands. Each resort in the Maldives is a private island, with all the resorts offering halal food.
Not just halal food, other Muslim facilities are also at one’s fingertips in the Maldives. Every Maldivian resort has a mosque on its island. Most of the halal-friendly accommodations also offer privacy without sacrificing adventure and thrill. Muslim tourists booking a halal hotel or resort are very likely to find themselves having access to complete pool and spa privacy.
Whether you’re a newlywed couple or traveling with kids, Go Ocean can help you choose the right resort for that dreamy Muslim-friendly island getaway.
Yes, certainly! All the guesthouses and local restaurants and cafes serve halal food. Resorts, on the other hand, have the permit to import and sell pork and alcohol but all their meat products (including chicken, beef, and lamb) are 100% halal.
If you’re seeking a fully Muslim-tailored experience, you can book a resort with us and have all your Islamic travel needs taken care of. When Muslim clients book with Go Ocean, our team directly contacts the resort/hotel to arrange for an Islamic-friendly stay.
First, Go Ocean makes arrangements with the booked lodging in advance to prepare for our Muslim clients’ stay. We request the resort to remove all alcoholic beverages and other non-halal food items from the client’s room. These are replaced with non-alcoholic and halal food and drinks.
Next, we request the resort to prepare for the catering of the client’s Muslim-friendly requirements and preferences outside their room space too. For instance, at the resort’s F&B outlets. This means a customer’s package is fully customized so that their resort only serves them halal, non-alcoholic products.
Go Ocean also briefs guests on how to determine if a specific menu item has pork or not and how to abstain from these dishes. For instance, a general Maldivian rule is that any food or beverages containing pork or alcohol have to mention this either on the menu or buffet.
With Go Ocean’s help and guidance, it’s almost impossible for clients to accidentally consume pork or alcohol and risk ruining their island vacation.
