We travelled to Meeru back in 2008 and loved every minute !
We have recently started looking at going the Maldives again and found (obviously) the prices have shot up and we can't seem to fly from Manchester to Male as part of a package.
We have approx £2000 - £2500 each to spend on 14 nights all inc on an island with a nice beach, snorkelling trips and generally the same laid back no shoes no news attitude as meeru but with the facilities if you want them. Room wise we are happy for a beach villa as we know water villas or over the water villas are out of our price range :)
I have been reading through reviews for equator village, Rannalhi and Hudhurranfushi but am getting confused with some excellent reviews and then the odd one saying "stolen money" and "termite problems"
Any advice on island to choose would be great
