Rent in the Maldives for less than in Sydney!

November 16, 2020 Headline News No Comments Email Email

According to a report by James Booth in DMARGE, even with Sydney rental prices falling, it’s still cheaper to stay in an Overwater Bungalow in the Maldives than in comparative properties in Manly or Bondi, Booth adding that driving this home with all the subtlety of a late-night thirst trap is the tantalising offer Anantara Veli Maldives Resort recently announced.

It appears that for US $30,000 (AU $41,214) you and a partner can spend a full 365 days in one of the luxury resort’s stunning Overwater Bungalows, with the  exclusive offer including all taxes and service charges, daily breakfast for two, shared return transfers between Anantara Veli and Malé as often as required, and a 25% saving on dining and spa treatments.

While at the resort guests can use its fitness centre, pool, and attend yoga classes on the sunrise yoga deck free of charge and there are numerous water sports on offer too, with the Maldives a snorkeler’s, surfer’s and fisherman’s paradise, with all this part of the resort’s ‘Unlimited Stays In Paradise’ package, which the hotel has announced saying, “Return to your Maldivian Over Water Bungalow as often as you please and soak up the turquoise lagoon, magical sunsets, and the tropical beauty”, and , “Laze on your sun deck as colourful fish swim in the crystal-clear waters below. Elevate working from home to a new level, or up sticks and escape to sunnier climes to enjoy some R&R whenever the fancy takes.”

Booth says that with this offer sitting among a global trend of digital nomad luring by tourism-dependent countries, this puts the (by comparison) stark reality of working from home in Sydney into perspective adding, why work from home in your sweatpants when you could be tapping at your keyboard in a bikini or board shorts – all while paying less rent?

He adds that with the work from home revolution in full swing, this is an increasingly serious question Australians – particularly Sydneysiders – are asking themselves, especially when comparing the prices in the Maldives with the prices in Sydney, with Booth taking a look at some of the properties available in Manly and other Sydney beach suburbs

Booth closes by saying that if you’re ready to take the plunge, don’t delay too much: the hotel is only offering the package from now through until November the 30th, 2020 and you’d also have to convince the Australian government to let you leave, in a climate where only around a quarter of overseas travel exemptions have been granted, but hey, what’s life without a little risk? Maybe it’s time to dust off that passport and get shopping for laptops.
