The Maldives is famous for its resorts and idyllic scenery. There are several accommodation options that you can explore, depending on how much you want to indulge and pamper yourself, as well as the budget that you can afford.
In this post, we’ll answer some questions and provide suitable options for you to consider having your dream holiday in the Maldives.
What is the average cost of a honeymoon in the Maldives?
If you plan to go to The Maldives for a week, you can expect to pay anything from $1300 per person to $10,000 per person. It depends on what type of accommodation you want to stay in and the location.
