Maldives 5-star water villa for two at US$575 per night in November
As the weather cools off in Europe, tropical holidays suddenly start sounding much better, and the high season for hotel prices in the Maldives is fast approaching. For this reason it's getting a bit more challenging to find interesting deals to report, but we do have a really nice one this week.
Among the most popular of the private-island resorts in the Maldives when it was known as Diva Maldives, the LUX* Maldives Resort adopted a new name in late 2011, and it's still a favorite. This is a 5-star property with 87 water villas in addition to 106 island rooms and suite, and they are running a promotion that includes 2 free nights on bookings of a week in the coming months.
A Water Villa for US$575 per night for two people on bookings of 7 nights or more at the LUX Maldives Resort. This rate includes 2 free nights (so the real rate is US$772 per night on shorter stays).
This promotion is only available through our booking partner – Agoda.com – which has the best deals in the Maldives and throughout Asia. We found this rate for a 7-night stay in mid November, but of course it depends on availability. To check your own travel dates go directly to the Agoda page for LUX Maldives.
Five-star luxury at a four-star price
When you look at the details of the LUX Maldives Resort you'll begin to understand why this one is so popular. It's one of the very few 5-star Maldives resorts to have the full range of facilities such as 2 swimming pools, 2 floodlit tennis courts, and separate activity clubs for teens and for younger children. Of course there is also great scuba diving and many other water sports, so it will be impossible to be bored here.
Considering that there are under 200 total guest rooms, it's refreshing to know that there are 8 different restaurants and bars, as well as a proper night club. Some resorts of this size have a single buffet restaurant and lounge for everyone, but at LUX you can choose different atmospheres and cuisines including Japanese, Southeast Asian, Italian, and sea food.
Large and luxurious water villas
Even the most affordable water villas at LUX are 764 sq ft (71 m²) including terrace, making them about 3 times the size of a typical city hotel room. They have a separate bathtub and shower, and an outdoor shower out on the private terrace. They also provide bathrobes for each guest, so lounging around in extreme comfort will make it hard to leave the villa.
Unlike many other Maldives resorts, LUX provides free wi-fi in each room, and you also get a flatscreen TV, DVD player, an in-room safe, minibar, and coffee or tea making facilities. Complete the picture with the wonderful tropical breezes and stunning sunset views, and this one is hard not to daydream about.
