Maldives 5-star water villas for US$659 per night
The idea of paradise is often conjured up on Hollywood movie sets where they either recreate island escapes or use an actual island for only a few brief scenes. But who needs a movie set when there's the real thing? In the island nation of the Maldives, you'll find countless islands dotting the sea, creating that picturesque escape you've always dreamed of.
You'll also find a large variety of resorts to choose from, with most offering a selection of beach front and overwater rooms. Some come with all of the amenities while others pride themselves on simplicity. If you're looking for an amenity rich island vacation at a great price, you'll find exactly that at the Coco Bodu Hithi with overwater rooms starting at only US$659 per night.
A water villa at the Coco Bodu Hithi Resort for US$659 (taxes and resort fees extra) per night for two people with breakfast included.
Available only through Agoda, this nightly rate is sure to please travelers looking for a great stay at an even better price. Keep in mind though, that this rate is only available within the months of June and July with an increase in rates during other portions of the year. But because this rate is such a good value, international travelers flock to this resort, making the need to check your own individual travel dates on Agoda for the Coco Palm Bodu Hithi Resort pretty important. Rooms do fill up quickly with cancellations being very rare.
Light and airy rooms
With constant views of the ocean and the beach, you'll find yourself peacefully existing with nature without having to step outside. Each villa serves as multiple rooms with screen separated living spaces. The master size bedrooms feature a kind size bed, flat screen TV, stereo and views of the ocean's waters. You'll also find that the villa includes a secluded outdoor shower, indoor tub, mini bar, DVD player, private safe and an espresso machine.
Once you walk outside, you'll find yourself on your very own private terrace where you can enjoy the views while relaxing on a comfortable day bed or in your private pool.
A gym with a view
Those who love to exercise, even while on vacation, will find another form of paradise with not only a well stocked fitness room, but one that is on stilts and over the water. With an amazing view of the ocean, you may find it hard to concentrate on your workout routine. You'll also find that a section of the gym is equipment free and slightly removed, serving as a great place to take a rest between workouts.
After a great workout, you can then turn the nob down and relax in the resort's spa where you'll be privy to numerous treatments from Indonesia, Thailand and India. You'll also have the option of partaking in several different water activities and excursions.
