24% Off a Spectacular Maldives Trip: 7 Nights on a Private Boat for 4 Passengers Is $7,999

It includes the costs of meals, crew, and more.

Anyone who has holidayed in the Maldives can attest to the fact that the archipelago on the Indian Ocean is a paradise. It’s soul-stirringly beautiful from every angle, every location—a nature’s bounty with a multitude of shades of blues in the limitless skies and the glistening waters, framed with shiny white sand and rows of swaying palms. 

And, anyone who has dreamed of flying off to the epitome of barefoot luxury can attest to the fact that the price tag of this vacation is more than your average summer trip. So whenever we find a deal for this Asian destination, we jump at the chance to share it with you. This one is a little more special because it’s an unconventional way to go island hopping.

Instead of staying at a luxury resort in the Maldives, you can hire a private charter boat and take it for a spin in the Indian Ocean as you wander remote beaches, go snorkeling at different diving sites, and feast on the catch of the day. The traditional dhoni boats are fitted with all modern-day comforts—two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms will be perfect for two couples or a group of friends.
