Looking to go somewhere special this year? Is the Maldives on your bucket list? These special offers to the Maldives will help you plan a trip to paradise.
When it comes to bucket list destinations, the Maldives is up there with the best of them. The Maldives is one of the few places I have been to where the incredible images you see on Instagram do live up to reality, so when special offers to the Maldives are announced, it is something I get excited about!
I have been very fortunate to visit three different islands, but I still find it difficult to describe what it is like when you step onto the islands for the first time. I was blown away by their beauty and serenity, but also by how different each island was and the variety of facilities available – and this is coming from someone who was selling holidays to the Maldives for 24 years before I visited.
The Maldives has won the world’s leading destination for the past four years, and it is not difficult to see why, but did you know there are over 1200 islands in the Maldives?
Choosing an island to suit you is extremely important, so I have teamed up with Ireland’s Maldives specialists, Simply Maldives, who have been visiting the Maldives for over 20 years, and can recommend the perfect island to suit you.
There are boutique-style islands that are best suited to honeymooners, while others have a wider choice of night life and activities available. Some islands are great for families too, with kids clubs, banana boat rides and luxury two-bedroom beach houses.
I usually recommend all-inclusive resorts in the Maldives, but it is vital that you check what is included. Holidaying in the Maldives can be expensive, as most produce and drinks are imported, so choosing the right all-inclusive arrangement is almost as important as choosing the right island.
Some all-inclusive packages only include dining in buffet restaurants, and house wine or beer. Others have premium offerings with a choice of dining options, a stocked mini bar, water sports and sunset cruises.

Simply Maldives have a wide selection of resorts to choose from and will advise you on the best island to suit your taste and budget. However, I have chosen three islands below that offer great value for 2024, this is just a sample of the many offers available.
1. Kuramathi Island Resort: 25 – 30% off & Free Upgrades

If you have been following me for a while you will know how much I loved Kuramathi Island Resort – that sandbank is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on. Kuramathi epitomises barefoot luxury, but also offers superb dining and accommodation options to suit couples, families and groups.
It is one of the Maldives largest islands, and caters for all tastes and budgets with a choice of beach bungalows and water villas for couples, as well as two-bedroom duplex beach houses for families. There are 12 restaurants to choose from – nine of which are à la carte, as well as seven bars. If you want barefoot luxury, but also want a choice of dining and nightlife, then look no further.

25% off Deluxe Water Villas + Free Upgrade to All Inclusive:
2 Sharing from €3495 inc Flights, Speedboat transfers, Meals & Drinks
I had the pleasure of staying in a Deluxe Water Villa in Kuramathi and I felt like I was living in paradise. They are built on stilts over the ocean, so it is possible to jump straight into the sea from their massive deck. There are also steps down to the water – I am not the best swimmer, so this suited me perfectly!
The villas are beautifully decorated in bright modern style, with a king-sized four poster bed, free standing bath, and glass doors that open fully, offering direct access to the deck and the lagoon.
I can’t recommend these highly enough, you can see a full tour on my Instagram highlights. I loved balmy night caps on my balcony while taking in the views – it was pure bliss.
