Maldives 5-star water villas with private plunge pool for US$557 per night
An island paradise is generally comprised of a tropical white sand beach, clear waters filled with colorful fish, palm trees dotting the shoreline and a room filled to the brim with amenities and comforts. All these qualities can be found at most of the resorts in the Maldives. Taking it up a notch however, are the overwater resorts that feel the best experience is one placed gently above the ocean.
One such resort is the Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu Resort. Here guests will find a slightly different approach to luxury island living with a ‘no news, no shoes' feel. Here, the most important thing is relaxation with some fun mixed in. For those looking to relax and truly escape it all,you can do so with rooms starting off at only US$557 per night for two people.
An overwater villa at the Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu Resort for US$557 (taxes and resort fees extra) per night for two people.
Available through Agoda, this nightly rate is available during the month of July and offers guests a chance to enjoy an overwater 5-star resort for under US$1,000 a night. With that said, it's important to note that rates do change throughout the year so if a summer island vacation within this price range is in your future, you'll want to book quickly as others may be thinking the same. This particular rate is well below the usual low season rate, making it an incredible deal.
