Summer Island Village – Maldives

If you are looking for the cheapest water villas in the Maldives, you’ve found them here at Summer Island Village. It has 16 water villas, but they are almost nothing like the stand-alone units at most places. These are in groups of four rooms, so each “villa” has one or two neighbors with shared walls.

Summer Island Village does offer great value though, as it operates on an all-inclusive basis, including alcohol. There are 92 beach rooms as well which are cheaper. This is definitely not an ideal place for a honeymoon, but it could work well for those wanting a private-island holiday on a tight budget.

Location

The Summer Island Village is located on Ziyaaraiyfushi Island, which is 34 kilometers north of Malé International Airport in the Maldives.
