the Maldives didn't already have enough water villa or overwater bungalow resorts, the list continues to grow longer almost monthly. At the moment there are over 90 different overwater resorts in the world, and now the Maldives alone has about 60 of those.
These four resorts have been under construction since 2010, and getting an exact opening date for them tends to be difficult. The resorts tend to open later than originally planned, and most go through what they call a “soft opening” where they begin accepting guests (usually at special rates) while the finishing touches are being applied, or sometimes rooms are being finished.
Another challenge is that these water villa resorts tend to hypnotize potential guests with their photos, and yet they don't take (or at least release) promotional photos of these places until after everything is complete and perfect. So we don't have photos or guest reviews for a few of them, but it's still fun to see what's coming online finally. Two of these resorts have overwater rooms STARTING at around US$3,500 per night, so I'll meet you there, okay?
Good afternoon from California, USA.
I’m looking to visit Maldives in August 2021. Can you please tell me the Covid-19 restrictions for Maldives resorts and are all resorts now opened for vacationing??
This will be a family vacation and what is a good recommendation for a family experience there at Maldives?
Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.
Maldives reopened its borders to tourists of all nationalities on 15th July 2020. There will be no further incoming travel restrictions to the country. So far there have been very few cases of COVID at any of the resorts and if you are vaccinated you should be fine.
For families I highly recommend Meeru Island, which is among the largest islands and the most affordable for all-inclusives. Since it’s a large island they also offer more pools and activities than most others as well. Have a great trip! -Roger
We are considering a 10 week stay and are avid scuba diverstrying not to break the bank
We don’t need fancy we come for the diving. Any help would help. Where should we be looking for to be close to the diving?thanks Bob Hastings. 🌴🐋🦈😎
Ten weeks in the Maldives is an extremely long stay and I’m not aware of any diving resorts that cost less than US$3,000 per week. You might try Indonesia as they have great diving resorts at much more reasonable prices. -Roger
