Easter 2019

Help! My family and I would love to go to the Maldives. Easter hols 2019 travel between April 6th and April 23rd for ideally 14 nights but minimum 10 nights. All inclusive. 2 adults and 2 children (14,13) want diving and snorkelling. Everything I’ve seen is over 10k. Is 7k an impossible budget?!

Hi

I am going in August 2018 to a 4* island called Vilamendhoo for 13nights AI basis. This is classed as low season. It has cost me for 2 Beach Villas with my teen boys 15&13yrs, flights, transfers and taxes 10,200.

April is classed as High Season so I think you will struggle with 7k.

Have you priced up the popular budget islands like Reethi Beach?

I think your budget is a bit low too, I’m afraid. You’ll get more for your money in low season if you could go at a different time? Vilamendhoo is a great option with teens...

Hi welcome to the forum

Im sure you can get something in yiur budget. Embudu is a well known divers island for instance. I recommend contacting a good Maldives specialist agent to see what is actually available.

Purely Maldives

Can all get you a good deal and have fantastic knowledge of the Maldives...

I think one thing that will help bring something in on budget is if you shared a villa rather than requiring 2 (where poss). We have four teens so have to juggle this problem/expense! I’d also contact some specialist agents - even if they can’t quite do your budget, they’ll be able to tell you how far you’d need to stretch it.

Suggest you look at Meedupharu (has semi detached villas), Reethi Beach or Reethi Faru (this has family villas with 2 bedrooms)

Also use travelbag site to get estimate costs (need to click through book to get total with transfers) - then contact the agents above.

Another vote for Reethi Beach or Reethi Faru 2 good islands where you get very good value (by maldives standards) Reethi Faru has family rooms may save a bit.

April is only just outside high season and of course during school holidays you will pay a premium I think your budget for 4 people is a bit tight even for 10 days especially all inclusive.

If you can wait until the summer holidays it may be achievable as this is low season.

Another note all inclusive can be limited in The Maldives you really need to research what’s each resort includes as the teenagers probably won’t be drinking much alcohol full board may be worth considering.
