sorry for yet another kids in the Maldives post (I know some have posted about the inappropriateness of kids there, etc, but lets not go there again eh)
as part of a year round the world starting in August , husband and I really want to show the kids the Maldives before they disappear. We get to Sri Lanka end of March. Kids will be 9, 7 and 4 by then.
I am having enormous problems finding an island that 'allows' you to have three kids, and not need a mortgage to get there. Have trawled site after site, sent email after email, fax after fax, and the only quotes I am getting from places like Filitheyo and Fihalhohi are over ÃÃÂ£3000 for 7 nights, and that is accommodation only - no flights. Some also seem to allocate all rooms to travel agents and wont deal direct. I want to pay about 1/2 that.
I would be happy to share one room with all the kids - we're staying in hostels and RVs elsewhere, so will be well used to it.
Have been to Vabbinfaru Banyan Tree on honeymoon so have amazing memories and high expectations, but very small budget.
Any ideas? Thanks all!
