Stayed at the andaman too, thought the beaches were incredible (when comparing it to my trip to Maldives)
That was February 2020 just before covid really kicked off!
I paid 3.5k per person for a one week all-inclusive holiday at the 5 star Shangri-la villingili resort Maldives in a sunset overwater villa in February (during half term) which is peak time and that was inclusive of return flights from uk internal flights,/transfers. It was an offer booked in advance via Voyage Prive.

I can't think of anything worse, I struggle when it gets above 75 degrees in the UK.
Not to mention travel restriction.
Or 3 hours if you try to do it in rush hour on a Thursday evening (lol) Yes, my watch recorded 51 degrees when I was there last and I was so grateful to get out of my suit at the end of the day. Bit that I didn’t get used to was the heat and humidity in the evening. Kinda like someone breathing in your face all the time.
Expect to be in doors in hotel restaurant or in a mall that time of year...
Only about 90 mins drive to Dubai..and you can get a taxi . Recommend brunch in the Emirates Palace.
Oh Nice! Please bear in mind BA cancelled my flights as they have cancelled the route from April onward. It was a pain but in the end they moved us onto Qatar flights
That makes two of us. I booked with BA holidays for December 2021. Food and drink tend to be frighteningly expensive making HB well worthwhile
Have booked the Ephelia next year for 7 nights.l Looking forward to it as I’ve never been to the Seychelles before. Head added
If wishes were horses..... it’s been a tough year
£432, but that is only viable if you stay at a cheaper hotel on Praslin and then transfer for a few nights at Lemuria. Praslin is only accessible by domestic flight, local ferry or helicopter transfer.

1. December is the rainy season 2. You'll think that you are in UAE surrounded by 400 plus Arabs. Lol. There's around 1000 plus of them on the Covid free islands staying until March 2021. 3. Just be careful about the quarantine rules before leaving. Heard you still have to quarantine for 5 days b4 moving to your hotel. 4. If I were you, I'll move my holiday after March next year. I was born there and goes there every 2 years. So take my advice.
I believe you also cannot leave your hotel for 5 days upon arrival as part of the special status so 2 days to enjoy the Seychelles or see the tortoises etc making this £2250 per day! “A COVID-19 test must be performed no more than 48 hours before departure and you must be able to demonstrate a negative test result on entry. Upon arriving in Seychelles, visitors must stay in a designated hotel/establishment and may not leave the premises for 5 days. Another COVID-19 test will be performed on the fifth day of your stay. Following a negative test result, visitors will be free to travel within Seychelles”
Big tortoise! Seychelles.

Maybe, but even paying the balance 4 weeks before you go could be seen as risky, given that the situation could change over night. In " normal " times baring a personal issue you could be pretty certain of getting what you've paid for.
As stated, the deposit is £15 ( refundable ). You only pay the rest four weeks before you go, and even that is refundable for another couple of weeks.
Using the " Logic " scenario who would lay out such a large sum of money for over a year not knowing the outcome ?? perhaps only those people fortunate enough to have that kind of money that won't be missed ??
Good deal if you are a Flintstones fan in the Middle East cos Dubai doesn’t show the Flintstones but Abu Dhabi do.
It does say this on the Hotel page: (ends tomorrow) Fabulous Fairmont Offer: savings on stay valid from 01 November 2021 to 06 November 2021, 11 November 2021 to 24 November 2021, 29 November 2021 to 26 December 2021 and 02 January 2022 to 10 January 2022. Book by 31 August 2020.

How to Book a Travel Republic Holiday
Booking holidays with Travel Republic should be quick and stress-free. The first thing to do is get an idea of where you’d like to go by checking the destinations section and exploring suggested resorts and attractions.
Enter the name of your destination in the search box and select your preferred resort. Choose a departure airport (or group of airports), the number of people travelling and your travel dates. You’ll be presented with a list of possible flights, with full journey duration and price details.
You need to provide full personal details for booking.
Payment Methods Accepted by Travel Republic
Once you’ve reached the payment pages at Travel Republic, you can use the following payment methods to finalise your holiday booking: Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, PayPal, and American Express.
All debit card payments are free, but credit card payments will incur a small surcharge. All transactions are protected by Norton Secured, so you can be confident that your personal information will remain safe and sound.
It’s important to note that Travel Republic do not sell holidays directly. They connect you with various hotels and transport companies, and terms and conditions of these companies may vary. So check each ticket individually if you have any concerns.
Sales at Travel Republic
Travel Republic is a low-cost travel retailer, and every day is a sale in some form. You can get a good feel for their current offers by heading to their deals section, which divides discounts into themed sections. Always check the Travel Republic HotUKDeals listings to make sure you don’t miss anything.
Many of Travel Republic’s promotions are seasonal. For example, their January Sale features a range of ways to get away from the dark days and gloomy weather of home for tropical resorts. This kind of topical sale is a common theme of Travel Republic’ operations, so if you need an off-season getaway for some hard-earned sun, their website is a good place to look.
The Travel Republic Price Match Scheme
Travel Republic doesn’t run a points-based loyalty scheme that allows customers to rack up Avios when they book. Instead, they offer a Price Match Promise that can potentially save customers hundreds of pounds.
Under the price match scheme, if you make a booking with Travel Republic and subsequently find your flight or hotel at a lower rate somewhere else, the company will refund the difference.
To claim, just e-mail email@example.com within 24 hours of placing your booking. Make sure that the words “price match” are in the subject line, and Travel Republic will get back to you as soon as possible.
Cancelling Holidays Booked With TravelRepublic.co.uk
Accommodation - All accommodations can be cancelled with a full refund up to 3 days before departure (unless the rooms were subject to a discount, in which case a no refund policy may apply).
Flights - Flight refund policies vary. If you book with low-cost airlines, you probably won’t be able to claim any refund. However, if your booking code begins with “EUR”, you may qualify if you claim a refund well in advance of departure. You can find a table of discount policies of specific travel companies on their website.
Car hire - If you rent a car with Travel Jigsaw (one of Travel Republic’s partner companies) and cancel at least 48 hours before departure, you can claim a full refund. If you book with Car Trawler, you have until 24 hours before departure.
To actually make a specific cancellation and claim your refunds, the best option is to head to the “Manage your booking” section of the Travel Republic site. You’ll see an option beside your flight, accommodation or car bookings to raise a Customer Support Request, which will alert Travel Republic’s team of your request.
