What makes a deal, a “hot” deal? Well, maybe when the promo code is “hot”.

The Standard, one of the most fun and funky luxury hotel groups in the world has a lovely property in the Maldives, and unlike some of the outrageously over the top places in these stunning atolls, rooms at the Standard typically stay in the $600’s, rather than the $1000’s, like others. But still, that’s a lot of money.

For a very limited time, The Standard is having a flash sale, with rates for $240 per night, which even include breakfast. With taxes and fees, they’re all in at $301, and include breakfast.

$240 Rates At Standard Maldives

Looking for an overwater villa in the Maldives, don’t have 1 million points and want a bargain? The Standard seems to be a damn good choice. For $301 per night with taxes and fees included, the Standard’s $240 rates lock in an overwater villa, which sounds nothing short of perfect. These rates are around half the usual price.

110 square meter overwater villa with king bed, one daybed, private deck with infinity plunge pool and direct stairway access into lagoon waters.

Those looking for the iconic, overwater experiences (yes, like the ones you’ve seen on Instagram) will be right at home in the Lagoon Overwater Villa. With crystal clear, shallow water beneath your private plunge pool deck, direct access to our expansive lagoon, and comfy bathrobes to hang out in all day, this villa is exactly what dreams are made of.The Standard Maldives

Bigger villas with different views are available too. But what’s particularly awesome about these overwater villa rates, is that they include daily breakfast, which if you know anything about the Maldives; can cost more than the nightly rate at some places!

Just Enter “HOT” in the promo code field before searching.

Update: it appears these “HOT” rates are now good for stays now through September 2021, so the next two month. Rates nearly as low resurface at the end of April 2022, for stays pretty much until the end of the schedule. For other dates, with stays of 10 nights or more, “STOWAWAY” brings up comparable rates under $300.

Impressively, for $411 per night all in (a $328.80 per night) room rate, you can get breakfast lunch and dinner included. For The Maldives, which is equally as expensive as it is stunning, these are insanely good deals.

Unfortunately, like all top Maldivian hotel accommodations, sea plane or speed boat transfers are not included. That’s up to you to figure out whether to go through the Standard or look for other options. It’s a significant cost, but for a YOLO vacation of a week or more, shouldn’t be make or break. At least you got a bargain on the stay!
