Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort

A 4-star overwater resort offering lots of great outdoor amenities to enjoy, the Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort is a great choice for those wishing to stick to a smaller budget during their holiday and those seeking a resort stay near an airport. Here you'll find that room rates start below the US$500 mark. You'll also want to note that since this resort is on the same island as an airport, you won't have to worry about paying an extra fee for a sea plane or speedboat ride to the resort. Even with these low prices, the resort still offers guests a nice amount of things to do and see, including scuba diving and snorkeling. Both of these activities are highly rated, making this resort a good one to check out if you're more interested in the ocean compared to the land.

All in all, there are 68 villas on the island, 43 of which are situated over the water. Out of these 43, there are 3 different types of water villas to select from- the sunset water villa, the sunset water villa with a pool and the over water villa. All of these are the same size and offer the same amenities. The only difference being their location and the fact that one category comes with its own private pool.

What the reviews say

Though there are only a small number of reviews available, all of them rate the resort very high. Many visitors state how they love the scuba diving and snorkeling available right off of the beach and would recommend it to their friends and family. Also, the rooms are stated as being very spacious with excellent views of the ocean beyond. The staff members receive lots of praise as well with guests stating how attentive they are and how they seem to remember every detail.
