Just about everyone on this site loves the Maldives and I am no exception. Having been to the Hilton three times in 15 months I have becom besotted with the beauty of the atolls and the charm of the Maldivian people.
But I see a sad turn of events begining to take place which can be observed by just looking at how the prices have grown over the past post Tsunami period. To me it is reaching a point where the islands are begining to price themselves out of the market. It is a terrible shame and, in my view, a flawed strategy as people will eventually say 'enough' and start looking elsewhere. Hell, it is reaching the point where Bora Bora may become a cheaper option.
Well not quite maybe but The Seychelles and Zanzibar to name just two are becoming viable alternatives.
I guess the market will find it's level but, as far as I am concerned, until it does I am looking elsewher. Sad but true.
