The St. Regis Maldives is offering both complimentary breakfast and dinner on award stays in May 2020. May is in the rainy season, and the Internet tells me that means that the islands that make up the Maldives therefore see an average of 15 days with some rainfall during the month, so it may not be the ideal time visit. On the other hand, if you’re willing to roll the dice, it’s certainly possible that you’ll see some sunshine during your stay and you would stand to potentially save a good chunk of change if you’re willing to dine on their set menu in the evenings. Check the rate details before you book as I imagine this promo is subject to change at any time.
- Get complimentary breakfast and dinner at the St. Regis Maldives on award stays during May 2020
- Note that you should check the “rate details” on an award search as this promo could get pulled at any time
- Be sure to check the rate details before you book to make sure you see the note about complimentary breakfast and dinner
- Only available for award stays during May 2020 (or on cash stays with promo code ES1, but those rates aren’t good)
Again, this isn’t the best time of year to visit the Maldives, but the savings would likely be significant. I haven’t stayed at the St. Regis Maldives, but I would expect it to be a bit more expensive than the meals at the St. Regis Bora Bora, where I found most entrees to be around $35-$45 or more (with some restaurants easily costing more like $150 per person for dinner) and cocktails / glasses of wine to be in the $20’s and up. I imagine most couples would stand to save well over a hundred bucks a night over (maybe more depending on how extensive the included meals are).
Note that you can also book a cash rate with code ES1 and receive the same half-board deal (free breakfast and dinner) if booking a cash stay, but the rates seem unreasonably high with that code.
When booking an award stay, be sure to check the link that says “rate details” in the search results to be sure that you see this note indicating that the promo is still valid when you book.
Keep in mind that the St. Regis Maldives standard rooms range between 70K-85K per night during the month of May and the 5th night is free on an award stay. Thus, you could potentially stay for five nights for as few as 280K Marriott points depending on your dates and availability. Also keep in mind the expensive sea plane transfer of $695 per guest 12 and over or $399 per guest ages 2-11.
However, if you’re looking to check the Maldives off your bucket list, this will ease some of the sting. If you were to stay for five nights, you would certainly save at least the cost of the sea plane transfer in meals, which isn’t insignificant.
