We have been going to Maldives since 2006. Five visits to Lily Beach (four pre refurb), three to Veligandu, twice to Vilamendhoo, once to Biyadhoo and a couple of stays on local island. It's our 15th anniversary later this year and we had planned for ages to celebrate it in the Maldives. The only problem is that the prices are so unrealistic and we just can't justify it anymore. I know that the resorts will charge what they can get away with but it's just getting crazy. Two weeks in November for a half decent resort will cost at least £8000. Looks like somewhere else will be getting our money this year. I'm not saying we will never go back to the Maldives but it will be most likely a local island stay.
