Sometimes you just need a tropical vacation on the island’s beach. Preferably for a year. Like every year 2021.
This is what some fortunate folks will be able to do after Anantara Veli Resort in the Maldives announces their new holiday package..
CNN reports that for $ 30,000 you get an overwater bungalow for two people on the private island, which you can use unlimitedly during 2021, with airport transfers and breakfast.. .
Is there a better way to avoid a global pandemic than spend your time sitting under palm trees, swimming in blue waters and grazing tropical fruits and cocktails? Other activities around the resort include cooking lessons, snorkeling, diving, surfing and spa sessions.
Sorry, that was rough like 2020. Because for most of us, except for winning the lottery or the death of a distant rich relative, this escape remains a distant dream.
For those willing and able to pay, you don’t have to worry about border closures – the Maldives opened its borders in late July due to its heavy reliance on the international tourism market. There is also no quarantine period to observe.
Tropical islands have been relatively unaffected by the epidemic. Johns Hopkins University reports that the Maldives has 12,059 confirmed cases of Covid-19, with 12 deaths. .

This is not the first time that Paradise Island has attracted international envy. In 2018, a resort in the Maldives was declared a ‘Desert Island Bookseller’.
Soneva Fushi Resort, which cost $ 2,700 to $ 35,000 per night, sought an applicant with a « passion for books and the ability to engage guests of all ages. ».
“We want someone on Earth who is creative and inspiring and who can possibly attract more people to share the joy of reading, which is what people enjoy on vacation,” said a resort spokesperson.
They also needed to be able to entertain the kids, host creative guest writing sessions and write a blog about the life of a bookseller on a desert island.
We can only imagine all Instagram influencers claiming $ 30K Maldives residency. The rest of us buy lotto tickets.
