You can live in a luxurious Maldives resort for up to a year from £30pp a night

A FANCY island resort in the Maldives is offering guests the chance to stay in paradise for up to a year. 

Anantara Veli Maldives Resort’s ‘Unlimited Stays in Paradise’ package lets guests book unlimited nights for a one-off fee. 

Included in the deal is an overwater bungalow, daily breakfast for two, transfers between the island and Velana International Airport whenever needed, and use of the fitness center and main pool. 

There are a number of added extras available, from scuba diving and sailing to jet skiing and dolphin watching.

Guests will also get a 25 per cent discount on food and spa treatments during their stay.

The price for a year’s unlimited stays for two people comes to $30,000 (£22,770) inclusive of all taxes and service charges, which if you were to stay all year would work out at $82 (£62) a night – or $41 (£31) per person a night. 

You’d be unlikely to want to stay for every single night of 2021 on the island, but for millions of Brits who worked from their bedrooms in 2020, being marooned for the following 12 months probably seems like an attractive option. 

There are a few terms and conditions for anyone thinking of signing up though. 

The two guests who will be staying in the bungalow must be named when the payment is made and only they are allowed to stay. 

A statement from the hotel says: “Return to your Maldivian Over Water Bungalow as often as you please and soak up the turquoise lagoon, magical sunsets, and the tropical beauty. 

“Laze on your sun deck as colorful fish swim in the crystal-clear waters below. 

“Elevate working from home to a new level, or up sticks and escape to sunnier climes to enjoy some R&R whenever the fancy takes.”

The Maldives started welcoming tourists once again on July 15, after being forced to close their borders during the pandemic.

But the islands were only added to the government's quarantine-free travel corridors list at the end of last month.

Although it is worth nothing that from November 5 to December 2, international travel from England is restricted, except for certain circumstances.

All touristsmust present a negative PCR test for COVID-19 on arrival to Maldives, issued no more than 96 hours prior to departure.

Anantara Veli caters exclusively to adults, one of the Maldives’ few adults-only Maldives resorts.

It has 67 overwater and ocean bungalows, and is30 minutes by speedboat from Velana International Airport.
