Best Maldives resort deals for April: Water villas from US$344/night
The Maldives is close to capacity from December through March, but by April we start seeing some interesting promotions. Instead of highlighting just one at a time, we'll now be picking out the best deals each month so you can choose the best one that fits your style.
One deal below is for a very modest price, while the others are only a bit more expensive for resorts with added benefits. One of them is fully all-inclusive, and the other is a 5-star resort with a private pool on the terrace of each of its huge water villas. These room rates are close to half what they are in December, so they offer excellent value for savvy tourists who also prefer to avoid the peak crowds of the holidays.
Large water villa with half board for US$344 per night
The Velidhu Island Resort in the Maldives offers some of the least expensive water villas in the region, and in April they are running a promotion for only US$344 per night (US$405 including all taxes) for two people. Unlike most others in the Maldives, these water villas do share a wall with another unit, but they are still very large at 800 square feet including the private terrace. There's no swimming pool or Kids Club, so the Velidhu is unofficially an adults resort.
Two free nights in a 7-night stay in a 5-star water villa with private pool, US$471 per night
The Beach House at Iruveli Maldives is a resort that doesn't offer promotional rates too often, but right now they have a water villa for an average of US$471 per night (US$559 including all taxes) when you book a one-week stay. The rate includes 2 free nights and is all the more incredible when you learn that these water villas are 110 square meters (1,184 square feet) and each has a private plunge pool out on its generous private terrace. For only a bit more you can get an Ocean Villa, which comes with its own steam room and sauna.
All-inclusive 4-star Maldives water villa for US$485 per night
For those who prefer a fully all-inclusive holiday, the Chaaya Lagoon Hakuraa Huraa Maldives is the best deal in the month of April. You can get a water bungalow there for only US$485 per night (US$523 including all taxes) for two people. The resort has 70 of these water bungalows to go along with 10 island bungalows, so it's a smaller private-island resort. Even food is famously expensive at these remote Maldives resorts, so when all meals as well as all alcoholic drinks come with a room rate like this, it's a great bargain.
