Dreaming of a holiday amidst white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters without breaking the bank? The Maldives, often associated with luxury, has a few secrets up its sleeve for the savvy traveller seeking a budget-friendly escape. Find out more about the art of cost-effective indulgence for a holiday which will be both unforgettable and affordable!
Choose Speedboat Transfers
Arriving in style doesn’t have to mean emptying your wallet. Opting to stay at an island resort which can be reached by way of speedboat transfers from the airport can be both thrilling and economical. These transfers not only whisk you away to your tropical paradise but are much cheaper than more costly seaplane options at faraway properties. With that in mind, look to choose a resort in places like South Male Atoll which can be reached by speedboat.
Select an All-Inclusive Plan
For a memorable stay in the Maldives, 5 star resorts that offer premium all-inclusive plans which cover accommodations, meals, drinks, and even a range of activities are perfect. You’re not only treating yourself to convenience but also unlocking significant savings since you will be based at the property. Ideal options include OZEN LIFE MAADHOO which offers gourmet cuisine, premium alcoholic beverages, airport transfers, excursions, snorkelling, spa rituals and more as part of its all-inclusive plan.
Check Offers & Book Direct Benefits
Resorts are known for their desire to pamper guests, and that extends to their special offers and direct booking benefits. Before you hit that “Book Now” button, check the resort’s website for promotions, early bird and stay longer deals and flash sales with amazing discounts. Additionally, instead of going through online travel agencies, booking directly with the resort can often score you exclusive benefits and savings all without draining your travel fund!
Travel in the Off Season
Timing can increase your savings too, even when it comes to planning your Maldives adventure. Off-season travel, typically during the wetter months (from May to October), offers an opportunity to experience this paradise at a fraction of the high-season cost. There will be showers but don’t worry, these will usually not last the whole day and you will have time to soak up the sun too. Apart from lower rates and more special offers, this period is one with fewer fellow tourists too.
