[TravelZoo] Reethi Faru Resort in Maldives (Garden Villa $702.22 USD / Water Bungalow $1,316.87 USD)
- Deal Link:
- November 25, 2020
It was a fully refundable voucher that could be redeemed before December 2022. They had 2 packages:
US$875 (approx C$1180) for 7 nights in a Garden Villa
US$1610 (approx C$2175) for 7 nights in a Water Villa
I ended up buying the Water Villa package for $1,610 and I remember it selling out fairly quickly.
Well today I was checking out TravelZoo and decided to jump on over to the Chinese version to see their deals, and I see the same resort and same packages being offered, only this time it's in RMB (Chinese currency)
If you translate the page, you'll see the prices for the packages:
>> Garden Villa package, about ￥665/night including tax (USD101/night) -> This works to out $706.22 USD for 7 nights
>> Over Water Villa package, about ￥1,240/night including tax(USD188/night) -> This works out to $1,316.87 USD for 7 nights
It appears that the way this works is by booking directly on the resort's website using a coupon code. You are instructed to choose the furthest date out possible, and then changing that date when you actually decide to fly:
https://www.simplebooking.it/ibe/hotelb ... pon=TZPM7N
Coupon code if you're booking 4-6 nights is TZPM4N
Coupon code for 7 nights + is TZPM7N
This works out to be significantly less than the original packages that many of us bought, and since they are refundable, I'm not sure if I'm missing something here or not or if I should refund my first one and book directly with the resort here.
But this deal ends November 25th.
