The Le Meridien Maldives is now accepting reservations starting in September, and it looks to be an award bargain in a location where those are hard to come by.
The category 5 property will set you back just 30K Marriott points off-peak, 35K normally, or 40K peak. A 5 night off-peak stay would cost just 24K points per night.
Plus that means you can use 35K credit card anniversary nights at the resort! Marriott will extend the expiration of those certificates expiring on 8/1 later this week. This is an incredible way to use those free nights!
Best of all, you can select a sunrise overwater villa as a standard redemption room!
For a stay on September 1st, the flexible paid rate would set you back some $622 after taxes, so that’s a value of more than 2 cents per Marriott point. I typically value Marriott points at about 0.65 cents each.
While there are no resort fees, you still have to travel 75 miles north from Male Airport to the hotel. That 35 minute scenic seaplane ride will set you back $420 round-trip, per person. That sounds pricey, but that rate is actually cheap compared to other resorts in the Maldives!
For September stays, you can book now and cancel up to a week before arrival with no penalties, but always read the cancellation terms before booking. If Marriott does decide to increase this hotel’s category, you would then be locked in at the lower rates.
Americans can fly to the Maldives with a vaccination card or they can provide negative COVID-19 test results.
You can currently take advantage of limited time offers on Marriott cards to help rack up the points and anniversary nights:
- Earn 100,000 Points On The Chase Marriott Bonvoy Boundless Card Or 50,000 Points On The No Fee Marriott Bonvoy Bold Card
- Earn 100,000 Points Plus $150 Back On The Marriott Bonvoy Business AMEX
- Earn 125,000 Points Plus $200 Back At Restaurants On The Marriott Bonvoy Brilliant AMEX
