As AJK said, min 4 nights i think also would be good. I did 4 nights, and i prob could have done at least 1 more. Its amazing there.
+1 min 4 . i did 4. i started getting edgy after 4 nights only because my work was getting backed up. and internet was crappy . but hace in mind cost. many ppl would do 6 if it was cheaper

How many days is ideal to stay in the Maldives?

I'd say 4-5

If you can do two different resorts even longer

Thanks guys!

I wanna leave Motze Shabbos and be back for the next Shabbos. Can I push in a nice Madives getaway in such a short time period?

No. Not unless you wanna do a 48 hours of flying for about the same 48 or so hours on the ground.

Actually, I take that back... looks like you can do EK and have a nice-ish stay of 3.5 days:

Not impossibly, or even impractically tight, but sure.

It's just an illustration. That'd be the absolute max time you'd be able to get in MLE.

Personally, I'd stay for shabbas (as I did). Was glorious, but I understand if a person feels like he needs to have a minyan on shabbas.

Hey I am not up to spend 26K for flights  :( :P

As Joey said, it's a bit to tight for Shabbos, also when I will get there Monday morning won't I be terribly exhausted?

Im sure that saying Nishmas on the purch of a OWB is something not explainable 😊

If you're flying F I don't think you'd be terribly exhausted, and even if you are it's not like your arriving to a full schedule in the Maldives.

Maybe stop somewhere in Europe over Shabbos?

Asia would be closer. Many great places for shabbos there.

If you can sleep for even a few hours on the flights, you shouldn't be exhausted. Plus, you'll be lounging around, so if you nod off a bit, not a big deal.

I spent shabbos there and enjoyed it just fine.
