Maldives Resort Offers $30,000 'All You Can Stay' Deal For 2021

Maldives Resort Offers $30,000 'All You Can Stay' Deal For 2021

A resort in the Maldives has devised a unique deal that offers the very wealthy a chance to stay for as long as they like during next year, but obviously, it's going to set you back a fair whack.

This 'all you can stay' deal is being offered by the Anantara Veli resort on the South Asian island paradise, and it will give you a personal holiday crash pad for the entirety of 2021 for the price of $30,000 (£22,772).

It sort of puts the all you can eat buffet to shame, doesn't it?

The package covers the use of a two person bungalow that is suspended above the azure waters throughout the whole year, as well as airport transfers and breakfast chucked in as a sweetener.

On top of that, you'll also get discounted add-ons for other stuff that the adults-only resort has to offer.

That means that you can get money off on spa treatments, cooking lessons - to learn the local cuisine - and water-based activities like snorkelling, scuba diving and surfing.

While the price tag is going to put a load of people off - not many have that kind of cash - it's actually a decent price for what you get, and it's significantly cheaper than renting another second home for a year, or even buying a property to escape to whenever you want.


It's also helpful that the government of the Maldives recently announced a tourist loyalty program across the whole country in an attempt to keep folks coming back for more.

In September, the Indian Ocean island chain's government announced 'Maldives Border Miles' which is a three-tiered system for tourists based on how much money folks spend on their holidays.

It's not immediately clear how that will work exactly, but there are Gold, Silver, and Bronze levels that will bring added rewards and perks for people who visit regularly and - most importantly - splash the cash while they are on holiday.

This is all because the Maldives is particularly dependent on tourism to stay afloat, and obviously it has been a difficult year for the industry.

However, the country has been pretty quick to open the borders once again, even with the coronavirus pandemic still raging on in many countries around the world.

The fact that it's a fairly remote place in the Indian Ocean certainly helped, and the fact that most tourist accommodation is on private islands and atolls helped too.

According to the data from Johns Hopkins University's coronavirus centre, the Maldives has seen 12,085 confirmed cases and 41 deaths since the start of the pandemic.
