Top 10 budget water villas in Maldives

2022-09-29 23:34:16

Even the most budget water villas in the Maldives are not as cheap as they might seem. The price starts at $ 300 per night (in June and July it can even be lower due to discounts), half board (breakfast and dinner), or full board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). On average, the cost is 40% higher than the beach villa. But you get a unique opportunity to spend your vacation over a crystal clear lagoon with a private entrance to the water.

I’ve created a list of the most budget water villas in the Maldives to simplify your choice.

You also need to consider that the transfer is paid separately and is not included in the villa cost. Therefore, the total cost will increase.

embudu budget water villa

Embudu Village 3*

Embudu Village on the map

Price Range: 350 – 430 USD/night/villa with full board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

Transfer: 10 min by speed boat, cost –  88 USD/person, round trip.

It’s a small resort and located just 10 km from the Airport. This resort is one of the most affordable in the Maldives in terms of price/quality because without overpayments you get breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the package. During high season, from Nov to Apr, it is very difficult to find a free villa, because they are all sold out at least 2-3 months before arrival. Therefore, if you are looking for a water villa, I recommend booking in advance. On the island, there are only 14 water villas located in two blocks on the water. This is one of the cheapest ocean villas in Maldives.

The size of this budget water villa is 42 m2.

These villas do not have a private entrance to the ocean, unlike similar villas on other islands. But there is a private terrace fenced from other rooms. The room has a glass window on the floor, so you can enjoy an underwater world without leaving your room!

The bathroom has a Jacuzzi, where you can enjoy a pleasant massage while drinking chilled wine.

The rest of the room amenities include air conditioning, hot/cold water, tea/coffee making facilities, telephone, hairdryer, minibar, flat-screen TV, safe and free wi-fi.

reethi beach overwater villa

Reethi Beach Resort 4*

Reethi Beach Resort on a map

Price Range: $ 310 – $ 360/night/villa with breakfast

Transfer: 30 min flight by domestic airline + 20 min by a speed boat. Cost – $ 290 / person, round trip.

Reethi Beach Resort is medium in size and one of the most affordable resorts with water villa in the Maldives. There are only 30 two-dimensional water villas on the island.

The size of the water bungalow is 61 m2.

These budget water villas in Maldives do not have a private entrance to the sea for snorkeling. But still, you can leave your stuff on the beach and go swimming. The only problem with the resort’s water villa is that the bathrooms are in the back of the bedroom, so there is no ocean view. But there is a private terrace where you can enjoy pleasant views.

For the rest, the room amenities include air conditioning, hot/cold water, tea/coffee making facilities, telephone, hairdryer, minibar, flat-screen TV, safe and free wi-fi.

However, Reethi Beach is quite an old resort (for the Maldives) and the interior requires updates, compared to most new ones. Therefore, you should not expect something supernatural from a resort in this price range.
