No. Should be round trip.

Super expensive to visit (eg food at hotels) since you are a captive consumer with limited options within the resort

Wtf are you taking about EY1!!! Yes it’s a conservative Muslim country but not one of the resorts out there follow sharia law. OP, I was out there with the Mrs. a month ago. Was fantastic! I’ll hook you up with the GM at the W Maldives. He became a mate of ours and is a champ / very helpful bloke. Send me a burner so I can send you details! Cheers! Have fun

Kinda depends on your point of origin for a comparison.

Yes. I loved it. Did a week of absolutely nothing on a tiny island with my wife. Stunning scuba diving and great food. People seem to either love it or get bored after a few days. Would not be a good singles place.

To all expecting mamas at Deloitte, I just found out about this and hole it helps someone else too. The Bright Beginnings maternity support program is a perk we get that was buried deep in DNet. I found it thanks to another post on here. If anyone else needs it,you just call 18443867354 to enroll and it takes 5 minutes. If you enroll in your first or second trimester, you get $200 Vantage Circle E gift voucher. This is the same portal that deloitte uses now for applause awards. 😊
