Spending the night at the airport
Malé airport is small and somewhat run down, so there are not many amenities. It is recommended to have headphones or earplugs.
Where to rest:
Mostly there are uncomfortable metal seats, but in the Departures area of the Domestic Terminal you can find better couches inside a waiting room. Another option is to use one of the seats located in the ferry terminal, across from the enclosure. VIP lounges are also available, and some of them are open 24 hours a day. SEE VIP LOUNGES
