These Five-Star, Water-Front Vacations in the Maldives and Thailand Are Nearly Half-Off

Though vacation is on the brain, it might not yet be in the books. This week, we found two deals extending through late 2022, allowing you to travel (and plan) at your leisure. And they’re both fully refundable.

First, we’re headed to Koh Phangan, Thailand, one of the most beautiful islands in all of Asia. The island is 30 miles from the mainland, removing you from the hustle and bustle and immediately putting you on island time. And the stay? It’s 46% off.

Our friends at Travelzoo are giving you the chance to experience the clear waters and green mountains of Koh Phangan at just $665 for seven nights. When you arrive on the island, you and a guest will be whisked away to the Panviman Resort Koh Phangan, a five-star beachfront resort built into the cliffs of the mountain.

For $665, you and a guest will get one of the resort’s Deluxe Rooms, featuring a king bed, stunning bathroom, and (the best part) a private balcony overlooking the beach. You do, however, have the option to upgrade. For $899 you can reserve a Pool Villa, which comes with a private pool, or—if you really feel like splurging post-pandemic—you can reserve the Presidential Pool Suite for $2,999.

Each deal comes with daily breakfast, a complimentary hour-long massage, complimentary kayaks for exploring the bay, roundtrip boat rides to the island, and discounts on spa services and food (the resort has two restaurants and one bar on-site). While the island itself is remarkable, Koh Phangan is also known for its monthly all-night Full Moon Beach Party, for which the resort provides complimentary shuttles.

While this deal is unbeatable, there’s another option for the traveler whose dream destination is the Maldives.

Dhigali Maldives in partnership with Travelzoo is offering a five-night stay for two at their five-star hotel for $2,899 (that’s a 48% discount). For that price, you and one guest will get five nights at the resort’s Beach Villa. These villas are over 1,000 square feet, located right on the beach, and have indoor and outdoor soaking tubs.

While your room with an ocean view and access might be hard to leave, we recommend venturing out (even if for just a night) to check out one–or all eight–of the property’s bars and restaurants. There’s also a spa and wellness center where you can indulge in one of the resort’s signature services or join in on a yoga class. And if you’re up for venturing off the property, this island is known for its once-in-a-lifetime diving opportunities.

Though both of these deals are redeemable through late 2022, they’re being sold only through May 5. It’s been over a year since we planned a last-minute, spontaneous vacation—let this be your reintroduction to it.

As a heads up, although Fodor’s fully endorses this deal, we receive a small commission on this transaction.
