Price of food and drink

Hi,

I'm soon to visit the beautiful holiday island in the Maldives but only on a half board basis. Can anyone advise me of the sort of prices I will be paying for alcohol and extra meals.

any other advice would be very welcome.

Thanks :-)

Hi Chancerbasil

The name of the island would be even more helpful

Chancerbasil - If you don't get any joy from forum members, you could try emailing the island to ask for info re prices. The address is :

Rough guide to prices (current at October 2008):

coke: $5

shot of spirit: $5

mixer: $4

bottle of wine: $34 upwards

large bottle of water: $5

pint of beer: $7

so, very expensive. However, the food is not that bad for lunch (we were on half board).

plate of calamari and chips: $8 (enough for 2 people)

pizza: $12 (enough for 2)

Just remember that everything has to be flown/shipped in to this island - and that contributes heavily to the cost.

Hope that helps.

Just to warn you.....Don't know about these 2 islands but everywhere else I've been they have added 10% service charge onto the price of everything.
