You can’t wait to travel again but the thought of brushing past other tourists is making you think twice about taking a holiday when the time comes. A resort in Maldives has the ultimate solution for you: Book out the entire private island. For US$180,000 (S$250,590). Per night.
Lux North Malé Atoll Resort & Villas in the Maldives has an out-of-this-world proposition for travellers with its Island Buy Out Package that starts from US$180,000 a night. At this pretty price tag, you get the entire six-hectare island — including close to 70 beach and overwater villas – all to yourself. This is next-level safe distancing, okay? Also included in the package is roundtrip speedboat transfers from the airport, and three meals a day at any of the resort’s three restaurants.
The catch? You have to book a minimum of three nights, so your holiday’s going to cost a grand total of at least US$540,000 (S$751,680). That excludes an international flight to the Maldives, and the U$6 green tax per person per night, which probably is chump change to you if you’re spending the equivalent of a five-room flat on a three-night holiday. The package is available until Oct 31, 2021, so you have over one year to, er, save up.
