This is a Thursday’s Travels – Anything about previous, current and future (upcoming) travel exploits entry under my Singapore Travel Blog themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.
As mentioned in my previous blog entry about my second honeymoon in Maldives, I promised to share the difference between All Inclusive, Full Board and Half Board packages in Maldives.
When we were researching about where to stay in Maldives, we were shocked at the many different types of packages available.
Thankfully, as we were no strangers to the Club Med concept (having visited Club Med Bintan and Club Med Phuket), we were able to wrap our heads around the various packages available.
Here’s #nadskai’s interpretation of the very many Maldives packages available!
Maldives Bed and Breakfast package
This would like most of the Singapore Staycations that you’ve encountered. Your resort/hotel package is likely just accommodation and breakfast. You’ll have to ‘settle’ your meals yourselves. Likely outside where it’s cheaper.
While this may work in places like Singapore, Phuket or basically anywhere that is accessible, it ain’t gonna do much for Maldives.
Basically your resort is likely to be situated on an island which is no where located to any ‘push carts’ or external vendors. You’ll have to take a ferry or a seaplane (which will cost you) to travel out for meals.
Likely you’ll be ordering ala carte from the restaurants in the resort instead. This option is highly NOT recommended.
Maldives Half Board package
This is likely to be two meals (usually breakfast and lunch) that is provided by the resort. Usually served with soft drinks, juices and prepared in a buffet style.
Unless you do not eat dinner, I would rather you splurge.
Maldives Full Board package
Fullboard packages comes with all 3 meals provided with non-alcoholic drinks. If you are not into alcohol, this is pretty sufficient. Meals are extravagant here, usually buffet style. Themed nights are a delight too.
Maldives All Inclusive package
All Inclusive Packages are just like Full Board packages… but better.
If you have an alcoholic hubby like I do, I would highly recommend All Inclusive packages. They come with all 3 meals, buffet style AND Snacks AND Free flow of alcohol AND Drinks. Guaranteed to put a smiley on a grumpy beer deprived husband away from his WIFI. Also snacks are available at certain timings so that you can continue to put on more weight anytime your greedy little mouth feels like snacking. (Which is what happened to me!)
That is my interpretation of Maldives packages! Do take note that these packages do not include scuba diving or island hopping etc. All these are additional!
Did I enjoy myself? Of course I did! Was it worth the money? Definitely. I never believed in skimping on holidays. Better travel before you can’t!
For those who were wondering why this was our SECOND honeymoon… it is because Skai aka c(hubby) paid for our first honeymoon to Europe. So in return, this is MY honeymoon to him. All sponsored by yours truly. Muahahaha. So no more honeymoons!
It was great to have experienced two different honeymoons. One to cities and shopping while the other to relax! Love beach holidays and this will definitely not be our last!
