Obviously this is not a deal for everyone, namely if you aren't into luxury travel or not into travel at all in the next few years. If you are interested in travelling somewhere nicer, there's a Travelzoo deal for Reethi Faru resort in the Maldives that is the best price for an overwater bungalow that I've seen since I started looking to the Maldives over a year ago.

The deal is for TWO people:
US$875 (approx C$1180) for 7 nights in a Garden Villa (on land)
US$1610 (approx C$2175) for 7 nights in a Water Villa (overwater bungalow, basically a house on stilts in the water)

You pay one price for two people staying in a room, and it includes:
- Daily breakfast and dinner
- One-way airport transfer per person, once per stay (this gets you from Male airport to Dharavandhoo Airport and then you take a 40 minute speedboat to the resort. You have to pay for the return trip but it's only US$175)
- One sunset cruise for two
- Complimentary photo shoot for two, once per stay
- 15-minute massage per person, once per stay

This does not include the international flight to the Maldives. We looked up some reviews of this resort and it's pretty decent, average around 4.5/5. It's relatively new, built in 2017 or 2018.

With the Travelzoo voucher, you can travel anytime between when the resort reopens (its currently closed due to COVID and Maldives borders being closed), and Dec 23, 2022. There are some blackout dates but otherwise it includes high season as well. It is also FULLY REFUNDABLE if you decide not to travel later on. You can add on the individual night vouchers to extend your stay as well.

My husband and I have been looking at Maldives for our honeymoon, long before we even got married, and this is the best deal we've seen on it. We expect that we might see some additional deals later on for other resorts since the Maldives travel industry has been hit really hard by COVID, but since this is fully refundable, we bought a voucher because it is a really good price as of right now.

Edit: it looks like the water villas are sold out! Congrats to those who got it. Hopefully I didn't shoot myself in the foot by sharing the deal with everyone and now I won't be able to find dates... semi joking. If you're contemplating settling for the garden villa deal, I honestly wouldn't do it. Unless you're like one of the posters who talked about going to the Maldives multiple times, I would rather wait for future water villa deals. It's so far away and it really is a once in a lifetime (for most people anyways) trip.

what's the chance of the company going under over the next few months to a year and no refund is available? That would be my only concern..

I booked the water villa! It’s been my dream to go to the Maldives and stay in an overwater bungalow. It’s so far from Canada so I imagine it’ll be a once in a lifetime trip, might as well splurge for the full deal!

Nothing is certain but Travelzoo is very reputable and has operations all over the world. They’re also a bit more diversified because they offer both travel deals as well as local deals, similar to Groupon.

Since there is so much flexibility in the travel dates, there’s a chance that you’ll encounter a flight deal as well. There was a flight promotion from Vancouver to the Maldives a while back that was well under $1000. We’re likely going to wait for a flight deal before we book our dates with the resort.

I literally today booked the Conrad Maldives with my Hilton Honors points. But it’s hard to justify 500,000 points for 6 nights when this is $1600 for 7 with meals...

Thanks OP! Booked a voucher for the wife and I. I was originally having credit card authorization issues for some reason even though all my info was correct.
