10 Best Hotels in Maldives for Under $200 per Night

The Most Cheapest Resorts in the Maldives


Feb, 2021

Enjoy affordable luxury when staying at the perfect resorts in the Maldives for a stunning experience. A sleek Water Villas, a white beach and turquoise water on the beautiful island as close to the nature as it takes are unmatched. Sadly, luxury boutique and upscale hotels in the Maldives typically cost anywhere from 500 to a thousand of dollars a night, and many guests in no position to regularly spend such funds.

But that doesn't mean an affordable dream stay is unattainable. It just requires more explore. With a little searching you can find hotels that offer luxury accommodations, great facilities and locations. Best of all, you can get everything the Maldives has to offer at cheap rates.

If you love the feeling of luxury without overvalue, you'll love these amazing properties — especially considering they are all $200 a night or less, depending on the season, and sometimes all year round.

1 Reethi Beach Resort

Booking.com

Best Experience:   Honeymoon, Beaches, Diving, Value

A lovely, all-round resort, Reethi Beach is a lush island with an unspoilt setting and follows the relaxed Maldivian way of life. In each of its aspects, you will find a piece of all the best that makes this resort so special. On the water, choose from catamaran sailing, canoeing, kitesurfing and waterskiing. Under water, there's superb snorkelling on the house reef, with the chance to spot many species of fish, turtles and octopus – even dolphins have been known to come this close. Diving is another highlight, with house reef dives and multiple trips further afield on offer every day. Reethi Beach Resort has been named one of the World’s Best Budget-Friendly Honeymoon Destinations by Australia’s leading international travel agency Flight Network in 2017.

Water Villas are built over the lagoon on stilts and feature patios with steps leading into the lagoon, soaking tubs, bathrobes, DVD players, bottled water, tea, teakettles, and sun loungers. All rooms have one king-size bed. Two twin beds are also available in Reethi Villas. Design-wise, villas have parquet floors, white walls with watercolor paintings of flowers or rural life, simple wooden furniture, and colorful throw pillows and curtains.

2  Sun Island Resort and Spa

Sun Island Resort and Spa
Booking.com

Best Experience:  for families and couples, All Inclusive, swimming pool, activities, kitesurfing, swimming with whale shark

Sun Island Resort And Spa is located in luxurious surroundings of South Ari Atoll. It is not everyone’s cup of tea and parts could do with some modernisation but for a moderately priced, sporting, entertaining and easy holiday with a good beach and lagoon, this is a world of breathtaking possibility, where adventure and relaxation are equally within reach. With a relatively large island and a long list of dining and recreational facilities, Sun Island Resort is ideal for active groups on a budget, but probably less than ideal for honeymoons or those in search of a secluded romantic holiday.

The 462-room 5-star resort is the largest in the Maldives. It's also among the cheapest, especially for the overwater rooms, so if price is a major factor then this resort offers good value. There are five bars, a 24-hour coffee shop, and five restaurants, including three specialty dining spots on the island. Catering to many large tour groups and families, the all-inclusive plans here are the most popular. Read Full Review.

Surrounded by a some popular dive sites in North Male Atoll, Eriyadu Island was one of the pioneers of tourism in the Maldives.

Positive qualities include: an excellent, easily accessible house reef; all-inclusive package, activities and water sports; and direct access to the beach from all rooms. However, lack of free water and Wi-Fi in rooms, average quality and choice of buffet, as well as a slow renovation process (there is a huge discrepancy in the quality of rooms) still leave much to be desired. However, value for money are fair for what you get Read Full Review

10 Biyadhoo Island Resort

Biyadhoo Island Resort, the beach bliss
Booking.com

Best Experience:  Couples, House Reef Snorkeling, Diving, Value

Biyadhoo Island is not a new hotel, in fact it is one of the oldest resorts in the Maldives. The fact that Biyadhoo has not changed in the last 30 years means that it slipped to the bottom of the resorts of the Maldives. On the other hand, the natural environment remains very good. Snorkeling on the house reef is a daily joy and one of the reasons why many guests choose Biyadhoo Island Resort.

The beaches freely come and go all over the island thanks to artificial attempts to keep it in place and enlarge with a pump. World-class diving in the region is known for sites like: Kandooma Thila with its huge schools of fish, Kandooma Caves because of its soft corals and the Guraidhoo Marine Reserve Kandu (fast wide channel).
