There is a very good reason the Maldives is a popular destination with the rich and famous, it's pretty incredible. But it also comes with a hefty price tag.
However, this doesn't mean you can't enjoy a luxury getaway this summer, because we might have just the place for you and it's in Greece. Check it out below:
OK, so it might not quite be the tropical huts you see on Instagram, opening right out onto the ocean, but it's damn close.
Not only that, the Stella Island Luxury Resort will also save you a whole lot of dollar.
Located right on the Crete coast, with its own private beach, the adults-only hotel offers guests a luxurious stay with the option to upgrade your room so that it's over the water and you can physically swim up to it (or do a cannonball first thing in the morning, whatever tickles your fancy).
The hotel boasts a lagoon-style outdoor pool and a spa stretching around the entire resort.
Guests can also choose from two bars as well as a buffet or a swanky a la carte restaurant.
Every room also comes comes with a flat screen TV, hairdryer, air conditioning, bathrobes, a safe and slippers.
Visitors will also be able to enjoy the minibar, room service and tea and coffee making facilities.
What more could you ask for?
If you like the look of it, you will be able to choose from the Island Villa Private Pool, Overwater Bungalows, Premium Swim Up, Luxury Swim Up, Premium Pool View and Luxury Pool View.
And if you're wondering what each of the rooms holds in store, their names sum them up pretty well.
According to prices on Booking.com, four nights in a luxury double room with a pool view in September will set you back £1,470 per adult, per night.
However, obviously prices vary depending on when you book and which room you wish to stay in.
But by the looks of things, you'll have to be quick, because rooms seem to be selling fast.
Greece is currently on the UK government's amber travel list. This means holidaymakers will need to take a Covid test before returning to England, before quarantining at home for 10 days on arrival and taking additional Covid tests on day two and day eight since their return.
If they are fully vaccinated, they only need to take the day two Covid test on arrival in England and do not need to quarantine unless that test is positive.
