ATOR: the cost of a holiday in the Maldives for the New Year will cost 259 thousand rubles … This was reported on the website of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR).
It is noted that from January 1 to November 17, the islands were visited by almost 1.1 million foreign tourists, of which 198.7 tourists came from Russia. “The ratio of organized and independent Russian tourist flow to the Maldives is now about 50 to 50 percent,” said the tourist office of the Maldives in Russia.
Thus, a voucher to the favorite resort of the rich for the New Year with accommodation in a guesthouse and meals on the basis of breakfasts will cost 259 thousand rubles for seven days for two. A week-long tour with accommodation in a three-star hotel with breakfast included in the price will cost more – from 348 thousand rubles for two.
“The demand for budget accommodation in the Maldives in the summer was higher than for fives and deluxe. In the sales of the same New Year period, guesthouses occupy about 15-20 percent. This is due to restrictions on local islands (curfew, closure of the “bikini beach”, lack of alcohol) “, – said the representative of Anex Tour.
Earlier in November, Russian tourists were warned of an impending shortage of places in Maldives during the New Year period. According to tour operators, the republic is one of the most demanded destinations for the New Year holidays among domestic travelers.
