Amazing Maldives 5* pool villas deal for travel up to 2022
The Maldives are still on the red list, but with this offer available until the end of 2022 and being refundable, it is worth considering. The resort of The Residence Maldives at Dhigurah is rated 5/5 on TripAdvisor and National Geographic Traveller listed the resort as one of the “world’s best new hotels” in 2020
The best price I can find it for elsewhere is around £600 more per room per week, and that’s a non-refundable rate with only breakfast.
This deal is valid until 20 December, 2022. A supplement of US$100 (approximately £73) per room, per night, applies to stays from 10 January-28 February, 2022 (payable directly to the resort). It’s not available 24-31 December, 2021; 1-9 January, 2022.
The deal is through Travelzoo, who I have used several times in the past for great travel deals. You have join/sign up to get the offer but it’s free and there is no catch.
Here are the options you can choose from:
- Half-board options (including daily buffet breakfast and daily buffet or set-menu dinner in The Dining Room):
- £2158 (£1079 per person)… seven nights’ accommodation in a Sunrise Beach Pool Villa for two
- £3249 (£1624.50 per person)… seven nights’ accommodation in a Lagoon Pool Villa for two

Hilton luxury hotels offers – Conrad, Waldorf and LXR
I have often written about the benefits of booking with a Hilton Impressario agent such as our own partners Debonair. Hilton IMpressario gives you extra benefits on top of many Hilton Honors perks and points. You get the perks on Waldorf Astoria, Conrad and the new LXR Hotels & Resorts.
Usually you get:
- Complimentary Breakfast for two
- 100 USD hotel credit per stay (or local currency equivalent)
- Room upgrade (subject to availability)

There is now an even better offer on selected properties:
- $200 credit
- Guaranteed upgrade when booking
- free breakfast for two
- double Hilton Honors points
The rates are flexible so you can cancel and don’t need to pay upfront. It’s the same rate you would pay if you booked the best flexible rate direct with Hilton, but with lots of added extras. It’s available for stays until December 31, 2021 with a minimum 2-night stay.
There’s a few of my favourites in there.
- The Biltmore Mayfair, LXR Hotels & Resorts
