4-Star Maldives Jacuzzi water villa for US$352/night half board
More good news is coming from some of the Maldives' best resorts as we are seeing rates for June and July drop to levels we haven't seen in a long time. This week's deal is for a Jacuzzi water villa at a high-rated boutique private-island resort including breakfast and dinner for two people for only US$352 per night. That's about $70 per night cheaper than we saw for these months only a few weeks ago, so it's now an ideal time to find a summer bargain in a Maldives overwater bungalow.
The Komandoo Island Resort is one of the smaller hotels in the Maldives, so it's an ideal choice for a honeymoon or romantic trip where you'd prefer not to be surrounded by families. There are a few water sports and other activities, but this resort is more about relaxing in privacy than about running yourself ragged.
A Jacuzzi Water Villa for two people at the Komandoo Island Resort including half-board (breakfast and dinner) for only US$352 per night (plus service and taxes). The full-board price is only US$403 per night, and the all-inclusive price is US$494 per night.
This promotional rate is only available through our booking partner, Agoda.com (owned by Priceline and the leader in the Maldives). It includes free cancellation and there is no minimum stay required to qualify for the price, but rooms are limited at this rate. Check your own travel dates at the Agoda page for the Komandoo Island Resort.
Large Jacuzzi water villas perfect for romance
Out of the 80 or so Maldives resorts with water villas, there are dozens that are ideal for families, but this isn't one of them. The Komandoo Island Resort only has 45 rooms including 14 Jacuzzi Water Villas and 31 Beach Villas. There's no swimming pool and no Kids Club, so it's romantic couples who dominate the scene, making this one of the quietest and most intimate of the resorts in the area.
The Jacuzzi Water Villas are very large at 829 sq ft (77 m²) including a 4-poster kingsize bed in each and a large private deck out back. These villas are about double the size of most others in this price range, so there's plenty of room to spread out and relax between soaks in the whirlpool. Each room also comes with kimonos for each guest along with beach towels and many more luxury amenities you'd want at a 4-star resort on a tropical island.
Great house reef and excellent guest reviews
When booking such a major holiday like one in the Maldives it's wise to check the guest reviews, and when you do that for this resort you'll be even more convinced. A few years ago the reviews were only a bit above average, but in the last two years or so this is one of the most beloved resorts in the country. As the overall scores get higher and higher you can expect the room rates to rise as well, so it's a good time to take advantage of this promotional rate.
Among the things that guests sing praises over are the house reef (for diving and snorkeling) and the relaxing atmosphere. Again, there are many Maldives resorts with dozens of activities going on all the time, but this one is more about relaxing and spending time with your partner. This is certainly the lowest room rate of the year, so if your dates are available it would be wise to book soon.
