10th wedding anniversary trip....Mirihi will be closed

Well I've tried to persuade Mirihi to let us help them with their renovations for 2 weeks next July so we can celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary on this special island ....but so far no joy. So, as anticipated, we need to look for somewhere else. Thoughts please....

- nice house reef is important for snorkelling, but we don't dive

- nice room (prefer WV or a fancy BV possibly with hot tub or jacuzzi bath)

- not close to Male

- not marketed towards families

- not marketed towards clients who like animators

- prefer HB, so don't really want an AI-only island

- don't need a pool

- no butlers

- small island (prefer no minibuses, buggies, quads or bikes)

- food needs to be good quality but we prefer a buffet rather than a la carte

- flying out 26/6 for 2 weeks

- budget ideally £5-6k max for 14 nights accommodation & transfers (will pick up Emirates flights separately)

- if all else fails we have seen Komandoo JWV in budget with Purely Maldives, but we are already going back there in Nov so would like to explore some new ideas as well.

It's a pity that you don't want to stay close to Male, as I think Baros would be a good option and in june it could be in budget... Maybe after Karla and I go there, as I'm sure we'll both love it, you'll change your mind...

Park hyatt might just come in on budget.

Froggy - yes Paul's "T**d Island" had crossed my mind. Would need to know more about the logistics of the domestic flight though...

Yes, that's the only thing that would concern me, I think there is two a day or something, he was asking about it recently, Patrick could maybe say,,,,or Paul will be along to say what he knows.

Athuruga ticks all your boxes except the half board option. Only AI but it's a great one and includes pretty much everything. The reef is amazing!! Or you can look at Robinson Club.

At least, this year PH is more expensive than budget...
