New Le Meridien Maldives
Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa Lhaviyani Atoll is one of the latest additions to the Marriott portfolio. The property is opening up this year and you can make reservations for stays starting from September 2021.
Set in a picturesque corner of Lhaviyani Atoll nestled on Thilamaafushi Island, Le Méridien Maldives Resort & Spa is a canvas inspired by the formation of the Atolls, fringing reefs and marine life. Spanning nine hectares, the island is an eco-conscious haven abundant with indigenous flora and fauna and is enveloped by a shimmering lagoon and coral reefs bursting with vibrant marine life including pods of Manta Rays and turtles.
It looks like a dream vacation, and it is also a very affordable one for now, at least for you stay. Expenses can add up with travel, meals etc. But lets look at how you can book this property.
How to Book
As reported by Miles Value, Le Meridien Maldives Resort & Spa is a Category 5 Marriott property. That means that you can book for just 30,000 Marriott Bonvoy points off-peak, 35,000 standard, and 40,000 for peak. If you book a 5-night stay with points, it could cost you as little as 24,000 points per night, since the 5th night is free.
Since it is a Category 5 hotel, you can also use your 35,000 Marriott credit card’s Free Night certificates at this resort, which makes it even better. That’s probably the best use for these certificates, since you can also select a Sunrise Overwater Villa as a Standard room. To make it even better, there are no resort fees currently for this property.
But there are costs involved. You will have some serious out of pocket costs. There’s a price of $420 per person for seaplane transfer to the Lhaviyani Atoll. Additionally, you need to pay for meals, drinks and activities on the resort. These expenses can quickly add up.

The Le Meridien Maldives is a great opportunity to finally use your free night certificates that you might have piling up. It is also a steal when booking with points since you can pay as little as 24,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night for a 5-night stay.
If you need more Marriott Bonvoy points, usually the best option is applying for Marriott credit cards. You can get big welcome bonuses, and free night certificates. You can also transfer points from Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards, but that’s not usually a good idea.
If you are planning to book a stay at Le Meridien Maldives make sure to prepare yourself for out of pocket expenses such as transfer to the property, meals, drinks and other activities.
