Huge 5-star Maldives water villas w/Jacuzzi tub for US$420/night
It's a good week when one of the resorts we recommend most has a 30% off promotion going. The Irufushi Beach and Spa Resort Maldives only recently parted ways with the Hilton chain, and in this case it might actually help more than hurt because this 5-star property outshone most other Hiltons. The most recent reviews are as consistently glowing as the previous ones, so this still remains a top choice.
Right now you can book a water villa at the Irufushi Beach and Spa Resort Maldives for only US$420 per night for two people including breakfast. These same water villas sell out at around US$800 per night in high season, so this marks one of the steepest discounts in the Maldives.
A Water Villa at the Irufushi Beach and Spa Resort Maldives including breakfast for two people for only US$420 (plus tax and service) per night.
This rate includes a 30% discount and is only available on Agoda, which is our booking partner in the Maldives and the low price leader. There is no minimum stay required to get the discount, but availability is limited and the promotion may end at any time. Check your own dates on the Agoda page for the Irufushi to see if it's available when you want to go.
Huge water villas with private outdoor Jacuzzi tubs
Even the smallest class of water villas at the Irufushi is 85 square meters including its large private deck, which makes them nearly 4 times the size of a typical city hotel room. In other words, these are suites all the way through. Among the best features is what they call an i-Spa bathtub located in a walled-in portion of the sundeck, so it's like a private spa in your own room.
Of course the villas come with all the luxury amenities you'd expect, including a flat-screen TV, coffee/tea service, refrigerator, and even bathrobes for each guest. You also get a glass floor section in the middle of your water villa for observing the sea life below, even at night.
Ten restaurants and bars, plus much more
Among the many reasons we recommend the Irufushi so emphatically is that it has all the best of a smaller romantic resort because the water villa area is so private, but also the best features of a large luxury resort. There are 10 restaurants and bars to choose from, so you can always find something with just the atmosphere you are in the mood for, whether it's casual or posh.
They also have a long list of water sports and other activities including everything from fishing to tennis to a fitness room. And obviously the spa, which has 20 individual spa pavilions, is one of the nicest in the Maldives. If you are considering the Maldives in the coming months, this is one of the first deals you'll want to look at.
