We visited the Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort in April 2023 using a Travelzoo voucher and couldn’t be happier. At the time, we paid $3,129 for 5 nights in an overwater villa. All meals, drinks, and transfers were included, as was a complimentary excursion.
Now, Luxury Escapes is offering the same deal — but even cheaper. You can stay 5 nights for $2,309 in a beach villa:
Or, you could pay $2,639 to stay 5 nights in an overwater villa:
This is an excellent deal all on its own, with the ability to buy now and choose dates later — all the way until December 2024.
But, it gets even better.
Stacking Promotions To Save Money
While you may have never heard of Luxury Escapes, both American Express and Rakuten have. We’ve seen an Amex Offer for Luxury Escapes floating around in the past, and it’s back again. In this case, you can spend $500 and receive $100 back on your purchase.
Meanwhile, you can get yourself 2.5% cash-back by clicking through Rakuten first.
You can choose to either earn cash-back or American Express Membership Rewards with Rakuten. We always recommend earning Membership Rewards points since they’re worth more than twice as much as getting cash-back.
In this instance, you’ll get 5,773 Membership Rewards points for booking a beach villa. We value Amex points at 2.2 cents each, which comes out to an additional $127 worth of points.Hot Tip:

This is such a great deal that some of us have already purchased it!
Sure, you could redeem hundreds of thousands of points for a stay in the Maldives, but why bother when you can opt for an all-inclusive option that includes the otherwise very expensive transfers?
Save your points and spend the same amount of money by jumping on this excellent deal from Luxury Escapes.
