Travelling On a Budget

April 22, 2019
innahura maldives resort

For most of us, the Maldives is on our travel bucket list, and with good reason. The beautiful weather, pristine beaches, crystal clear waters and vast marine life appeal to everyone. It is equal parts a romantic and an adventure destination, with much to do on both land and sea. With these tips, you can travel to the Maldives without having to spend all your life’s savings.

Plan

While spontaneous travel can be fun, it can also be an expensive endeavour. Planning well in advance allows you to figure out what your budget is, and what options are available to you within that budget. In terms of accommodation, the Maldives has a lot to offer ranging from luxury resorts and private islands to more humble and far more affordable resorts.

Innahura Maldives Resort is one such budget-friendly resort that allows you to enjoy the quintessential Maldives experience without the hefty price tag. While the price might be lower, the quality of service and facilities is not compromised. At this 3-Star resort, you can enjoy spacious, colourful beach bungalows, a stunning restaurant, two bars, a spa, gym and so much more.

Book In Advance

As with flight tickets, booking your resort in advance allows you to save more and take advantage of any special offers that are usually designed for Early Birds. These offers are typically listed on the special offers page of a resort website and promoted on the resort’s social media pages.

Innahura currently has a 40% special offer for stays between April 15, through and including October 31, when booked between April 15 through and including June 30. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the vacation of your dreams for 40% less?

Leave Nothing To Chance

Visit the resort’s website and social media pages, and sign up for their newsletter. This gives you a chance to learn about the various things you can do at the resort and how much they cost. Additionally, it helps you know about upcoming events that might be happening during your stay. Plus, by following their social media pages, you can start figuring out where you want to take photos once you are on the island!
