One year in the Maldives at a fixed price: luxury resort wants to attract tourists with “All You Can Stay”
A hotel in the Maldives has launched a unique offer for tourists with an extra large portion of wanderlust: a two-person bungalow 2021 can be rented for a whole year for a fixed price.
During the corona pandemic, the vast majority of long-distance tourist trips fell into the water. A hotel in the Maldives will offer an extraordinary solution for pent-up wanderlust next year: For a fixed price of 25,287 euros (30,000 US dollars), interested island tourists can rent an overwater bungalow for two people – for the whole of 2021.
For just under 2,100 euros per month, the special guests of the Anantara Veli Maldives Resort can stay as often as they want on the private island of Veliganduhuraa. The bungalow will be ready for tourists from January 1st, 2021, but they may only stay until December 23rd. A Christmas party on the beach is not included in the proud price. The package includes all transfers from the capital’s airport to the resort and back as well as breakfast. Extras such as snorkeling trips or massages are offered to year-round tourists at a discount. The special offer of the luxury hotel can be booked until November 30th.
Maldives: The Foreign Office warns against tourist travel
The government of the Maldives is offering a matching customer loyalty program for sun-hungry tourists with the necessary change from December: According to the website, travelers get points for every border crossing, which in turn determine their status within the program. Members then rise from bronze to silver to gold status and receive unspecified rewards and privileges as a result.
The Maldives are heavily dependent on tourism. Although the borders have been open to tourists again since July 15, the Federal Foreign Office is still issuing a travel warning for the island state and advising against unnecessary tourist trips to the country due to the corona pandemic. The capital Malé is currently particularly affected. Accordingly, visitors need a negative Covid-19 test to enter Germany, while returning travelers must carry out a PCR test in Germany and go into quarantine.
