REVIEW – Amilla FushiApril 12, 2021
Latest update: The price for a standard room has now increased to 120,000 IHG points per night, which would cost $600 during one of the very frequent IHG 100% points sales.
The best hotel deal in the Maldives?
Did you know that 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! (…even though the normal price is closer to $1300 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 are charging very reasonable prices for lunch and dinner too.
When I visited in April of 2021 I found that prices at the Intercontinental were on average around 50-70% of what they charge at the two Hilton properties above.
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).
So how do you book this fully refundable stay in a Maldivian ocean pool villa, with tons of extras for only $500?
