The Maldives is a fantasy come true, with nothing but turquoise water, palm trees, and white sand beaches as far as the eye can see. If that sounds like your cup of tea, leave the planning to Orbitz by booking your flight and hotel together as a package, and start shopping for bathing suits.
Overwater bungalows are a signature feature of the Maldives. Reethi Beach Resort sits on a tree-shaded islet, and its overwater villas are breezy havens for ocean lovers. Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort’s thatched-roof overwater villas are particularly charming, with peaked roofs and colorfully accented rooms.
All-inclusive resorts are a fantastic way to reduce hassle and maximize relaxation on your Maldives vacation. Centara Grand Island Resort & Spa Maldives is everything you could want from an island resort, with beach suites and water villas to choose from and all food, beverages (minibar, too!), and non-motorized water sports included. Lily Beach Resort & Spa has overwater units arcing across brilliant blue water, and a beach bar, beach cabanas, food, Wi-Fi, and even supervised kids’ activities are included.
November to early April is the ideal time to escape to the Maldives for some serious sunbathing. Tropical rains are most common during late April to October.
Booking in the off season from April to October is the best way to find cheap vacations to the Maldives. Check out all-inclusive resorts or those with lots of amenities, so that once you’re there, you don’t have to worry about budget. Booking your flight and lodging together is also a great way to save time and money. Orbitz offers customizable vacation packages to the Maldives starting as low as $678.
