I’m not sure why I didn’t think about this earlier but the stars have aligned perfectly to create one hell of a deal at the moment.
You can book a fully refundable stay at the Intercontinental Maldives in an Ocean Pool Villa with breakfast and Club benefits for $500 per night!
What really sets this deal apart is the fact that EVERYBODY gets an included breakfast, afternoon tea and 2 daily hours of free flowing cocktails, cheese and canapes. Not only that but the restaurants at this hotel appear to be charging very reasonable prices for lunch and dinner too.
More along the lines of London or New York prices than the 200% of Monaco prices charged at most luxury Maldivian resorts.
Seaplane transfers are an additional $600++ per adult and $300++ for children. That’s an unfortunate inevitability of staying at any Maldivian resort that isn’t close to the capital and all of its shipping tankers and long haul airplane traffic.
