Few people will want to spend an entire holiday sunbathing and swimming (although some do!), and so all resorts are careful to provide a programme of excursions and activities for guests. Bear in mind that this is the only way you'll be able to leave the island during your stay, public transport being nonexistent and opportunities for sightseeing almost as scarce. It's therefore important to give some thought to what you'd like to do other than sun-worship, and check that the resort you're interested in can cater sufficiently to your interest.
While all resorts have a diving centre, the uniformity ends there; you'll have to check and see if the resort you're planning to visit has a water-sports centre or its own spa, organises guided snorkelling or yoga and does any number of other activities you're interested in. For example the only resort to offer a golf course is Kuredu in Lhaviyani, although there are plans to build a second golf course on one of the islands in the new wave of resort development.
