Strategically situated on Kooddoo Island, Mercure offers convenient accessibility with a 50-minute  domestic flight from Male International Airport, facilitating a seamless transition from the mainland to  the island paradise. The absence of an additional speedboat journey provides direct access from the  domestic terminal to the charming villa accommodations.
