Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa is situated on its own island—one of 250 inhabited isles among the over 1,100 comprising the Republic of Maldives—and is surrounded by tropical turquoise waters and its own lagoon. We are conveniently located 15 minutes away from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport by speedboat and 1 km away from the neared inhabited island—so guests will not be inconvenienced with overnight stays in Malé or long waits for seaplane transfers.
