Drop everything because we’ve got a spectacular new deal here on a trip to the Maldives. Been wanting to visit but don’t have enough points? Worried that the cost for transfers is going to wring you dry?

Travelzoo has you covered here with an all-inclusive stay in an overwater bungalow at the adults-only resort, You and Me Maldives.

Book Your Dream Trip to the Maldives From $2,699

We get that nobody wants to pay for a vacation, especially when you can use points and miles for your stay. But the Maldives is one of those special destinations that warrants forking over some cash, especially when it means you’re spending so little for a week in an overwater villa.

In this example, you’d be spending 7 nights at You and Me Maldives in an overwater bungalow, with all meals and drinks included. Even better, lunch at the resort’s underwater restaurant is included, as is a free massage and a dolphin cruise.

We had the pleasure of staying at You and Me Maldives during its previous promotion on Travelzoo. It was an incredible experience and well worth the cost. Though the price has increased since then, this is still a great deal.

Why Is This Such a Big Deal?

We’ve been posting about the Maldives for a while now, especially since it tops the list of many travelers’ bucket lists. However, even when redeeming your points for a trip to the Maldives, you spend quite a bit on your stay. This is because you need to account for the costs paying for food, drinks, and transfers.

As an example, it’ll cost you 480,000 Hilton points for a 5-night stay at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island (with the 5th night free for elite members). This can score you either a beach villa or an overwater villa.

We value Hilton points at 0.5 cents each, which means you’ll be redeeming $2,400 worth of points for your stay. However, that just gets you the room — and nothing else.

Instead, you can choose to pay $2,699 up front with this deal. You’ll be able to save your Hilton points for a better redemption, plus your drinks and meals will be included. You’ll also be able to earn rewards with the credit card you use to purchase the voucher.

Of course, you’ll also need to travel to the Maldives from the U.S., the cost of which you can hopefully offset with your points and miles.

Hot Tip:

When paying cash for travel rather than using points, we recommend using a travel rewards credit card for these purchases. For example, using the Chase Sapphire Reserve® to book your travel package would earn 3x points per $1 spent.

Final Thoughts

The Maldives is an incredible destination to visit, which is one reason why it’s so popular with points and miles travelers.

However, there is a time and a place to use those miles — and this isn’t one of them. Instead, take advantage of this pricing to score 7 nights in an overwater bungalow in the Maldives at an all-inclusive resort for just $2,699.

It doesn’t get much better than that!
