Solo in the Maldives

Cathy's verdict
There’s no reason the idyllic beaches and crystal-clear waters of the Maldives should be for couples only. Barefoot Traveller has negotiated an exclusive singles rate on double rooms at a choice of two resorts so you can dive unspoiled coral, lounge under the palms, socialise at beach parties or escape to your private terrace as you prefer.

Barefoot Traveller says

Think holidays in the Maldives and images of picture perfect white sand beaches in splendid coral-island isolation spring to mind. But, thanks to Barefoot Traveller, holidays in the Maldives are no longer the preserve of honeymooning couples. This idyllic destination is yours to discover with our seven-night holiday to Bandos Island.

  • exclusive single rates
  • private island resorts
  • your own double room

For holidays between May and October, we have negotiated an exclusive rate for solo travellers at the four-star Bandos Island Resort.

This chic, relaxed hotel is located in the North Male Atoll, just a short speedboat ride from the airport. With the crystal-clear waters you’d expect from Maldives, Bandos Island is set in its own lagoon with a pool, sports complex, dive centre and spa.

Seven nights B&B costs from £1,495 in a Standard Room including flights, with the option to upgrade to half-board or all-inclusive.

We are also offering stays at Reethi Beach Resort with no single supplement, with a week costing from £1,595 B&B in a single room. In addition to idyllic beaches, a spa, a scuba-diving school and a house reef which teems with marine life, there’s also plenty of low-key nightlife such as quiz nights and beach parties.
