Best Maldives deals in September: Water villas from US$427/night
The month of September is sort of an in-between month in the Maldives, as resorts aren't quite at their low-season lows, but they are still much cheaper than the high season rates that start in November. The weather is pretty much perfect all year, so it's all about when people have time off for a holiday.
Below you'll find the best 3 resort deals I could find, and they are honestly better than I expected. Each of the resorts listed is in the top half of guest review scores, and the bottom one is actually one of the very best in that regard.
Best Maldives water villa deals for September
These 3 are quite different from each other, so one should be perfect for most people.
Anantara Veli Resort & Spa
Water villas from US$443 per night per couple
A very good deal at the moment, the Anantara Veli Resort & Spa is a small island with only 57 guest villas, all of which are quite large. The smaller water villas here are 62 square meters, which is about double the size of a city hotel room. This is a proper 5-star resort with all the trimmings, and there is even a sister resort only a 2-minute (free) boat ride away. This allows guests to use facilities at either resort, a rare and desirable feature in the Maldives.
The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Luxury Resort
Water villas from US$427 per night per couple
On the other end of the spectrum from the resort above, the Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Luxury Resort is a larger private island with 221 guest villas, including 80 large water villas. Being a larger island it means that they have more activity and dining choices than at the smaller places. This island has 10 different bars and restaurants, so guests can always find something to fit their mood, whether they want privacy or a party atmosphere.
Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Water villas with full board from US$498 per night per couple
Jacuzzi water villas with full board from US$498 per night per couple
With 91 guest villas, the Veligandu Island Resort & Spa offers the best deal for those looking for a meal plan and an excellent resort. Here they offer the full-board (3 meals per day) plan in their standard water villas for less than US$500 per night for two people. Better still, the larger Jacuzzi Water Villas are only US$536 per night for the same thing. That rates might seem suspiciously low including the meal plans and private Jacuzzi, but it's legit and this is actually one of the highest rated Maldives resorts by guest reviews.
