GREAT VALUE
You can't beat $600/night for an overwater suite in Maldives! We booked an all inclusive package, and the food choices were simply excellent for all 3 meals. The overwater suite is the way to go, otherwise why go to Maldives at all? Free tennis court / rackets and balls, surfing available, on site wedding photographer for hire, incredible sea life, two double-sided outlet converters provided in the suites. Rooms are visibly old but the overwater suites are still pretty great! Visit Maldives December through April. Check out nearby Sri Lanka! $188 per person for a non-stop round trip flight.
