Updated 5/7/22. Note that at time of writing, the Maldives no longer has a pre-travel COVID-19 testing requirement, although travelers must complete the Maldivian Traveler Declaration Form within the 72 hours prior to their flight departing to and departing from the Maldives.
The Maldives are our favorite luxury water villa destination, thanks to the destination's long-time focus on luxury, experiential travel with an emphasis on great amenities and service, rather than cookie cutter cheap holidays, and comparatively new resorts that have further raised the bar. For 2022 these are the top Maldives luxury resort offers:
1. Cheval Blanc Randheli: Stay 7, Pay 5 + Summer Delight Offer
Cheval Blanc Randheli remains our favorite Maldives luxury resort, thanks to its gorgeous, airy villas with vaulted ceilings, fantastic dining and culinary experiences (our best fine dining dinner in the Maldives was at Le 1947 Restaurant), and excellent spa, tennis, snorkeling and diving facilities. We were even fortunate enough to view two octopuses/octopi hunting together.
Offers: The Stay 7, Pay 5 offers two complimentary nights on 7+ night stays. The Summer Delight offer for Summer 2022 has these additional inclusions:
- 10% discount on the room rate per villa per night, excluding taxes, also valid for the extra adults supplement
