For offering affordable accommodation options, incredible package deals, a host of delicious local food, and many exciting activities, the Maldives is the ideal location for a budget-friendly vacation. Here are tips to keep in mind when planning an affordable trip to the Maldives.
Book your accommodation in advance
Maldives is a popular destination, and accommodation prices can vary greatly depending on the season and demand. You can often get a better deal and save money by booking in advance. Look for guesthouses or local hotels rather than luxury resorts, as these can often be more budget-friendly options.
Consider an all-inclusive package
Many resorts offer all-inclusive packages that include meals, drinks, and activities. Whilst these packages may seem more expensive up front, they can save you money in the long run as you won’t have to worry about paying for meals and activities separately.
Look for deals and discounts
There are often deals and discounts available for Maldives travel, especially if you book in advance. Keep an eye out for special offers and discounts on flights, accommodation, and activities. Home to plush Maldives villas, the elegantly designed and luxurious VARU by Atmosphere offers rewarding offers.
Explore the local islands
Whilst the Maldives is known for its luxury resorts, many local islands offer a more authentic and budget-friendly experience. Consider visiting a local island and staying in a guesthouse or hostel, which can be much cheaper than a resort. This also allows you to experience the local culture and way of life.
