I don’t know about you, but a huge part of the Maldives’ charm comes from the overwater villas in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Living in Singapore has got me partly averse to crowd, so any place away from civilization is always a pleaser. Why, having a private island all to yourself? Hell yeah! As superficial as I may sound, I was looking forward to ambling along the spine jetties of these Maldives luxury hotels, having the salty air between my hair and my dress dancing to the wind.
As you browse through the list of resorts in the Maldives that I’ve listed below, you’ll find that not all resorts have exorbitant rates – you may still get a chance to stay in an overwater villa or a beach villa without having to pay $1000 a night, depending on where you look. If you are looking for a way to travel on a budget in Maldives, it’s possible! You just have to stay on a local island, like Maafushi, and that was exactly what my boyfriend and I did when we were there in January.
While most of the Maldives’ resorts attract honeymooners, there is also a surprising number of travellers that come here for a family vacation. No matter where you stay, the views will still be wondrous, and the underwater life spectacular. Even if you aren’t too keen on diving, don’t miss out on snorkelling. Most hotels, not to mention resorts, provide snorkelling gear at no cost to you.
The prices of rooms per night that I’ve listed below act as a reference point and are calculated based on off peak periods.
Travel tip: travel during off peak periods!
That’s when you can make the most of the Maldives’ hotel deals. Prices can be slashed by up to half! Find out when the off peak periods are.
