Don’t get me wrong, the Maldives have been one of my favorite trips, however, it’s 10 hours from Munich. If you really plan to come from the US you are most likely going to connect in the UK and it’s going to be nearly 24 hours of travel time or more.
Most of the resorts also have food included and rent rooms on a weekly basis. The islands are very contained and you’d stay in one the entire time. They may have an excursion to another island, but it’s illegal for foreigners to stay on them.
We never book things through travel agents, but this isn’t an ordinary trip, so we did. It gave us many more options. We went on several snorkeling safari’s and to a deserted island.
I’m not certain exactly how much it would cost, but I’d guess close to $10,000+ – especially with the exchange rate.
