$334/night Overwater Villa at Beach House Iruveli Maldives

The Maldives is as aspirational as travel gets. Even on points, the Maldives is an expensive destination. On top of airfare to Male, seaplane transfer (which runs upwards of $500 per person RT), meals, and activities, there is the obligatory paid upgrade to an overwater villa that can easily cost an extra $350/night.

Beach House Iruveli (formerly the Waldorf Astoria Maldives) offers 1,000 sqft overwater villas with pool, daily breakfast, and free wifi, starting at $334/night, which is quite a bargain.

$334/night Overwater Villa at Beach House Iruveli Maldives

This rate is on par with the upgrade fee at the Park Hyatt Maldives, except you don’t have to spend any points. At high-end resorts, you’ll be lucky to pay $344/night for a beach villa, let alone a water villa with a pool.

I searched a few random dates in June and the water villa was available for $374/night, a slight markup. The number of rooms bookable with this rate is limited, so if you’re sure about your travel dates, I’d book fast.

The hotel website shows a rate of $444/night, so you’re looking at a substantial savings over a week-long stay.

Keep in mind the resort does have a seaplane transfer fee, though I was unable to get a number in time for this post. This can run around $400.
