House-sized Maldives water villa with half board for US$378 per night per couple
It seems like the phenomenon of “flash deals” has fallen a bit out of favor, but if you are looking for a Maldives resort you'll be happy to know about this one. At the moment, the Filitheyo Island Resort is running a 50%-off Flash Deal on all their villas, including their 16 water villas. To be honest, this doesn't look like a full 50% off, but these are honestly the lowest prices we've seen at this resort, so it's a bargain nonetheless.
The thing about this resort that stands out is that the water villas are absolutely enormous at 146 square meters each, including private deck. That's about triple the size of most others in this price range, and this is a 4.5-star resort with good reviews, so it's one to consider for sure.
A Water Villa at the Filitheyo Island Resort in the Maldives for only US$378 per night (plus tax and service) including breakfast and dinner daily for two people.
This rate is part of a Flash Deal on Agoda.com and it won't last long. There is no minimum stay required to qualify, but availability is limited so it's best to check the Agoda page for the Filitheyo Island Resort for your own dates and then lock it in if the Flash Deal is still going.
Among the largest water villas in the Maldives at an amazing price
Again, it's hard to overstate how much space you get in these water villas. At 146 square meters each, they are the size of a family home in the suburbs in most of the world. But most suburban homes aren't situated over a crystal clear lagoon with excellent snorkeling below. These water villas also come with a four-posted bed and a Jacuzzi tub, so they are very popular with the honeymoon crowd.
In fact, the resort doesn't allow guests under the age of 12, and they don't have much in the way of family entertainment so this is basically a de-facto adults couples resort. That should be good news for many people who prefer to relax in the Tropics without constantly splashed by screaming kids running by.
Two restaurants and excellent island amenities
The Filitheyo Island Resort has two restaurants and two bars, so guests always have options, unlike many of the other smaller resorts that have one central buffet restaurant and that's all. Of course there is also a luxury spa here that offers a wide range of massages and other treatments.
The resort has a high rated diving center in addition to a great number of other water sports on offer, but the primary activity seems to be just relaxing in the warm breezes between dips in the lagoon. With two meals per day included, this is easily one of the best summer deals in the Maldives at this rate for water villas of this size.
