Best Over Water Villas in the Maldives

Water Villas in Maldives

Water Villas are basically buildings that are supported by stilts constructed right on top of the water. This is a very unique stay experience that you don’t commonly find everywhere. Only a few destinations in the world offer it and fewer can justify the experience of staying in one and Maldives is definitely on the top of that list. If you are planning to visit Maldives, you should definitely try them out at least for a couple of nights. Modern-day water villas offer all the amenities that a regular luxury villa or hotel room provides and tops it off with the experience quotient. Just imagine living in a villa that sits right on top of one of the most beautiful reefs and picturesque seas in the world.

Why Water Villas in Maldives?

The answer is pretty simple. You get to stay in a villa that is right on top of some of the most beautiful ocean waters and reefs in the world. By just stepping outside onto the sit-out area and peeking down, you will get to see various different fishes and other aquatic life swimming in the waters below and if you wanna join them, a lot of resorts have stairs from the water villas that lead directly into the ocean below you. As the sunsets and you go to bed, you also have the calming sounds of the waves below to put you to sleep. If that isn’t an experience worth paying for, I don’t know what else is.

Are Water Villas expensive in Maldives?

While water villas are expensive compared to beach villas in a lot of budget and value for money properties. The same cant be said for a lot of luxury properties where the difference becomes quite minimal. Also, Maldives has some of the most affordable water villas in the world. Expensive is still quite relative though and changes from person to person. So, if you are looking for a rough price range, water villa stays start at around USD 300 a night. Now if you think that staying in a water villa is increasing your cost substantially. You can also opt to pick a split stay option that a lot of resorts are now providing these days. So for example, you can stay 2 nights in a beach villa and 2 nights in a water villa to bring down costs and still be able to experience water villas on your vacation.
