Choosing the meal plan:
All meal plans can be found at the Maldives resorts. In our previous article, we talked about it. Let’s remember what we said.…
Each resort is located at one island. You will not have choice of dining out of the resort. Meal plan selection depends on people’s travel habits. Which of the following is your food habit on holiday?
Type 1: I am very selective of food and beverages. I would like to see the options on spot. I will choose and pay to the hotel directly.
You better book ROOM ONLY (RO)
Type 2: I wake up late. I would like to get breakfast but I will choose and pay the other meals and drinks to the hotel.
Book BED & BREAKFAST (BB)
Type 3: I wake up late. Get breakfast. Buffet dinner can be include the rate. I can pay for the lunch and drinks to the hotel.
Book HALF BOARD (HB; includes breakfast and dinner. Not beverages)
Type 4: I wake up early. I would like to have breakfast. Sports, swim etc before lunch. I would like to have full lunch. Spend my afternoon at the hotel. Buffet dinner is fine. I am not good with alcohol. I can pay for drinks on spot.
Book FULL BOARD (FB; includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Not beverages.)
Type 5: I eat, I drink, I don’t want to count extra bills.
Choose the ALL INCLUSIVE options. (AI)
Generally if you book “half board” or “full board” lunches and dinners will be at the international open buffet restaurant of the resort. But especially luxury hotels have more than one restaurant choices. You will be asked to pay if you want to dine at the other options. Some hotels offer “dine around” meal plans. For example; you can reserve a “half-board dine around” and have dinner at the restaurant of your choice. Ask your travel agent for more information. These conditions may vary from hotel to hotel.
Many hotels also offer special meal plans for low season or honeymooners. You can book half board for bed and breakfast. Or you can book half board and stay full board. Your travel agency will provide you with the right options.
