Myself, my husband and 15 month daughter have (almost) booked to go to the Kandooma or the Hudhuranfushi for 9 nights in June. For the same price for B&B at the Kandooma, we can get AI at the Hudhuranfushi, whilst AI at Kandooma is an additional £1500 GBP (that's for both my husband and me, so £750 each). These are our only resort options in our budget (currently between £3,000 - £4,000 including flights) as we want to be able to surf off the beach without the need to take a boat ride. Kandooma's accommodation is slightly better as the Beach House has a bedroom and a lounge so our daughter can sleep in the room whilst we can sit in the lounge in the evenings.
By going B&B at the Kandooma, could we still enjoy good food without spending an extra £1500? My husband isn't a big drinker and I'm pregnant. Basically my question is how much do you think Kandooma will end up being if we did go B&B? I just want to ensure we have an amazing holiday (as am pretty sure we won't be able to afford the Maldives with 2 children for a long, long time). Any advice greatly received, and if you can just make my decision for me I'll be even more appreciative ;-)
