I've searched the forums, read the reviews, etc and I think my fiance and I are leaning towards doing the all-inclusive meal plan for our 14 night honeymoon stay at Reethi.
We are a late 20s early 30s couple and we definitely like to drink. I could see us sitting on the beach having 3 or 4 drinks before dinner, maybe a drink or two with dinner, and then whatever we do at night.
So I think AI is the route we want to go but we're just not sure about the food...we don't want to be locked into the buffet if it is not going to be anything appetizing so if anyone could give us some reassurance that'd be nice as well. It sounds like the reviews have been positive from the buffet.
The other alternative would be to just simply do the B&B, have a large breakfast, skip lunch, and have dinner at one of the other restaurants. But I have a feeling that at $5-$10 per drink that the cost of alcohol would catch and surpass the cost of AI.
We also read on the Reethi website that the all-inclusive package offers discounted ala carte prices. Does anyone know what this discount is?
As far as rooms, we of course want to do 14 nights on the water villa but it is a little on the high side of our budget, so we were considering doing 7 nights in a standard room and 7 in the water villa. Does anyone have experience doing this? Any chance we book a standard room and get upgraded to a water villa (since it'll be our honeymoon)? I've seen on other resorts that it is sometimes cheaper to book a standard room and when you arrive ask for an upgrade to water villa and the rate is far cheaper.
This will be our first time to the Maldives and we're excited...thanks for the help and the great forum.
