Maldives Mega-deals Blog

Forum members (and those who lurk with out posting, of whom I am sure there are many!) are always looking for the best deals available for their once, twice, thrice (ad infinitum) in a lifetime trip to the Maldives. This thread is for you!

Please share the knowledge. I'll start...

I, and several others, have recently booked a great deal at Outrigger Konotta. This deal might be for you if you want an extensive beach villa with a private pool on what looks like, and is being reported to be, a super island. The current offer equates to an upgrade from B&B to all inclusive (table service restaurant rather than just a buffet) - I reckon I've saved around £2k.

I've spent a little over my original budget, but think I am getting so much more for my money than I would have done elsewhere...and because it's a bit over budget, I wouldn't even have considered it if I hadn't seen it mentioned on this forum, so I wouldn't have known about it if it hadn't been for the generosity of other forum members sharing their knowledge.

Thank you everyone and if anyone else is there September 2018, I'll see you at the bar!

66BJF, no but the offer is available from a variety of agents, advertised by the resort up to March 2018. I asked a couple of agents to do me quotes for September. One told me I'd need to contact them again in a few months as there was no offer available for my dates, whilst the other made it their business to contact the resort to see what they could offer me. Needless to say I booked with the second!

I've linked this thread to the Top question on recommended agents who specialise in the Maldives so that it will always be easy to find.

I have seen Atmosphere Kanifushi on the Best at travel site for May June next year at (from) £1419. It has been on their site for a few weeks and looks like a real bargin if it is correct.

Is this a good idea? I can see the thread getting inundated with people pretending they've found an amazing deal through some agent that absolutely definitely no way José has anything to do with them.

Ok so the idea was that these are genuine (mega) deals or sales or special promotional rates originating from the Resort itself. These are usually time-limited. Preferably the poster (as with 123) has actually bagged the deal and thus proved it to be genuine or, at least, seriously looked into it.

No need to mention actual agents or actual quotes - as most of the recommended agents will offer the mega deals originating from the resorts which they have contracts with.

I can't see this being allowed because TA offer deals don't they ? And I'm sure we all shop around for our own deals.

Even so I like it so well done 123
