Resorts on Unofficial Time Zones

The Republic of Maldives is an archipelago of 1192 coral islands grouped in 26 atolls in the Indian Ocean about 417 miles (671 kilometers) southwest of Sri Lanka. The country relies heavily on tourism, and more than 100 of the islands are developed exclusively for tourism with one resort per island.

Some resorts have permanently added 30 minutes, 1 hour, or even 1.5 hours to Maldives Time to make the most out of the evening light. Be sure to check with your resort to find the current local time on the island.
