Hi, I'm planning a visit to Maldives for me and the wife in Mid June for about 3 full days. I would like some suggestions on recommended private beach resorts based on the following info I have:
a. Due to the short duration I prefer a closer island hence transfer by speedboat.
b. I prefer a more modern resort
c. the primary item on the to do list will be snorkeling (no diving) with probably manta rays/whale shark or anything amazing. Prefer if they're at the house reef or excursions are fine. The location if preferable to be close to these types of activities.
d. Half board preferably breakfast and dinner.
e. Prefer Beach villa, over water villa with or without pool/Jacuzzi
f. Budget is about USD2000 for 3 nights, I’d expect for decent resort accommodation, meals, activities, some drinks and transfers to airport. Is this budget doable?
On another note, the travel time in 2018 coincides with fasting and Eid celebration, will there be any restriction, escalation in prices, or limited service that might hinder our travel plans at the time?
