Help choosing a hotel


We've been looking at where to book for a holiday in January to the Maldives, it will be our first visit. We have been unable to choose a hotel and we would welcome some input from the experts.

We thought we were decided on Kuredu but due to the lack of reef and the comments we have read on the forum, it might be the wrong choice.

We are in our 30's and want to Scuba dive and snorkel.

We would prefer that the place wasn't too full of families and children.

We would like some nightlife, but it doesn't have to be a party atmosphere.

We enjoy nice meals.

A water villa would be nice but have not ruled out a beach villa.

We have a budget of around £8,000.

Sorry! Also meant to include that our preference would be all inclusive.

Vilamendhoo and komandoo would be a good place to start, kom being adult's only and the water villas at Vila are in the adults section. Both have good reefs but Vila would have the edge, especially for diving.

Athuruga would be out of budget for a water villa I'm sure but worth looking at.

Does the 8 k inc international flights and how many nights does it cover please?

Try thudufushi as well for a beach villa, as well as fihaholhi for water villas, kuramathi might be another decent one,,,maybe even reethi beach but on the select ai.

Also if you are going for two weeks you could split your stay between both beach and water villa on the same island, but normally you have to pack up, check out, move to your new room, so do it towards the end.
