Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced up to 50 percent off rates in the Maldives.
The pin-up destination for tropical holidays, the Maldives, are sometimes perceived as too remote and expensive for the “average” traveler. While this might be the case some of the time, there are more than 80 islands in the Maldivian archipelago across which agoda.com lists more than 130 properties, so there are plenty of affordable options for travelers with budget considerations.
The low season in the Maldives falls between May and September, during which time hotel rates drop dramatically. Due to the southeast monsoon, thunderstorms – a year-round occurrence – increase in duration, frequency, and intensity, though these are interspersed with long sunny periods and dry, clear spells.
Many travelers find that the benefits of traveling to the Maldives in the low season far outweigh any inconvenience related to the monsoon. Aside from saving on flights and hotel rates, travelers can enjoy deserted beaches, quieter resorts, and less waiting time at spas and restaurants. With fewer people to share their island with, travelers can enjoy a more intimate Maldives experience.
Divers can also benefit from a low season trip to the Maldives. While some sites may have reduced visibility, there are fewer divers overall, resulting in a calmer dive experience and a better chance to see the more shy fish species reluctant to appear for high-season crowds.
Agoda.com has limited-time promotions at the following Maldives properties, offering big discounts for luxury travelers and comfortable, affordable lodgings for budget travelers. All Agoda.com bookings also earn Rewards Points, so a super seasonal Maldives special booked today can reduce the cost of a booking in the future.
