We all love and have enjoyed an all-you-can-eat buffet, but how many of us have had an "all-you-can-stay" holiday? It sounds too good to be true, but a hotel company in the Maldives is offering guests a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. The luxury Anantara Veli resort has a special package that includes unlimited use of its property for the whole of 2021. Customers will get the use of a two-person bungalow that is perched above the crystal-clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort is also throwing in airport transfers, 365 breakfasts, discounts on spa treatments, cooking lessons on Maldivian cuisine, and scuba diving. However, all this comes at a hefty cost of $30,000.

The Maldives is a tiny archipelago nation in the Indian Ocean, about 700km from the southern tip of India. It has developed into a luxurious, high-end destination. It is famed for its pristine beaches, palm trees and five-star hospitality. The quality of its marine life has put it on the bucket list of adventure-seeking scuba divers. Many of its resorts are on private islands and atolls, making it a perfect choice for holidaymakers who seek seclusion and privacy in paradise. The Maldives is highly dependent on international tourism and has struggled during the coronavirus pandemic. A tourism spokesperson said the $30,000 package is good value and cheaper than staying in an average hotel for a year.
