Drone Policy — Maldives Resorts

Drones are the trendy photography equipment amongst most travellers. A drone in the Maldives would be perfect in capturing its beauty.

In the Maldives out of respect for all guests’ solitude, privacy and safety, 99% of resorts have designated their island a No-Drone fly zone. Therefore refrain from flying drones anywhere on most islands in the Maldives.

Resorts with the exceptions, mostly have designated areas where it can be used.

This is not the complete list but a few resorts that have been gathered.

Adaaran Club Rannalhi: We do allow using drones at our Resort except for the water villa area.

Six Senses Laamu: For guests wishing to fly a drone, they can rent the picnic island, a deserted island located 40 minutes speedboat ride from the resort, and fly their drones there.

Ayada Maldives: We are allowed the guest to fly a drone in public area due to privacy policy, guest can fly the drone in Magu Main Restaurant beach area and Zero Degree beach. In any other area is prohibited.

Four Seasons Maldives: Drones can only be used on the beach far away from all the accommodation, escorted by our security team.

Taj Exotica Maldives: Guest may bring the drone, however, it can fly the drone at 24-degree restaurant beach-side.

Angsana Velavaru

Fairmont Sirru Fen Fushi: Out of safety concerns and in respect to the overall individual privacy of our guests, Fairmont Maldives prohibits the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or drones in the resort — including recreational users and hobbyists — without the prior written authorization from the Marketing & Communications Department of the resort.
