Twin beds

My son (30) and I are hoping to visit the Maldives in late November/early December for the first time. But, on looking at various resort websites, it would seem there is a distinct lack of twin bedded rooms! Has anyone any ideas please?

Our main requirement is somewhere 'in the water' ... no preference for islands..... budget of £2000 ish for 7 nights, not including flights.

Thank you.

Even if a room doesn't have twin beds they may be able to add a day bed in if the room doesn't have one already although I've only really seen this advertised in beach villas. I would recommend contacting a specialist agent who would know which islands are able to do this, Purely Maldives are highly recommended in the forum and would be worth sending an email to.

It would also be helpful if you could have a read of the 'Which reef/room/island' FAQ on the right as in order to get suggestions on islans you need to divulge a few more preferences and critera

Thank you, but I'm not sure a day bed would suit.... especially considering the money involved!

But I will have a look at Purely Maldives anyway, thanks.

We went to Constance Moofushi recently and the water villa and beach villas all had day beds that were so comfortable you could have slept on them. Not sure how the main bed was built, it seemed to have a bit of a join in the midle but not sure whether it was two singles joined together, it was so comfortable I didn't really investigat further.

I'm sure rooms can be set up as twin beds or a double on some islands. I've seen beds that can be separated or fastened together as required. You could check out the web sites (room description) for the islands you like and then email them to clarify. Otherwise, yes, Purely Maldives should know and be able to request/specify a twin arrangement on booking.

i think most of the super king size beds weve stayed in were singles bolted seamlessly together. The problem being the bedside tables which are fixed to the wall in many places if you wanted to separate them.

I think although many resorts call" double rooms" in reality it's often two beds pushed and bolted together.

Pick the island you wish and ask them, you will probably be surprised by the answer.

However, without wishing to be intrusive, are you sure you want to actually share a room, and maybe would not prefer your own room each and would like to look at resorts that don't charge excessive single person supplements?
