Maldives 4-star water villas for US$434 per night
When most think of the Maldives, they picture luxury with an island twist, romance with a touch of adventure, ocean breezes mixing with the gentle sea and a home away from home. But there is so much more to paradise.
The Maldives serve as your entrance into another world. One that has become increasingly popular over the years. Because of this, resorts have begun to dot the island chain, each completing with the next, trying to appeal to the most amount of visitors possible. This can make finding your perfect resort a bit of a challenge but if you're looking for tropical island charm on a budget, we just might have the right one for you. The Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa with overwater rooms starting at only US$434 per night is perfect for budget island vacationers who seek adventure, romance and sunny skies.
A water villa at the Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa for US$434 (taxes and resort fees extra) per night for two people with breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Only available through Agoda and great for travelers looking for a secluded island vacation that's friendly with your bank account, this nightly rate is a crowd pleaser. However, this particular rate is limited to days within June and July, with higher rates found throughout other parts of the year. Because of this, it's best to check your proposed dates on Agoda for the Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa as quickly as possible. With both a beautiful location and a low price, these rooms don't last long.
A romantic getaway
If you're looking for the ultimate in privacy, you've found it. With your very own water villa, you'll be treated to a private walled-in outdoor wooden terrace equipped with sun loungers, a shaded area, tropical plants for that jungle feeling, stairs that lead straight into the clear, warm ocean below and a jacuzzi perfect for those romantic nights under the stars.
Within your room, you'll find coastal tropical decor helping to create that island vibe, a king size bed, either wood or titled floors, a 32 inch flat screen cable TV, iPod docking station, air-conditioning, a mini bar (fully stocked), an espresso machine, free internet and an open air bathroom complete with a rain shower and double sink.
Aside from a picture perfect reef surrounding the island offering underwater activities such as scuba diving, free diving and snorkeling, guests will find other great activities that will help draw you out of your room. Those seeking water activities will find windsurfing, kayaking and catamaran adventures. Equipment is easy to rent and lessons are always available to guests.
If you're looking for some fun on land, you'll find lots to do with a fitness center, table tennis, billiards, football grounds, a swimming pool (as well as a separate children's pool), darts and a volleyball court.
If you decide to go back out on the reef after trying all of the other activities but don't want to go alone, there are snorkeling boat trips that will help you venture out to further parts of the reef and its channels.
