It’s back! The Maldives deal that we booked last October that was all gone after a few days…it’s back! This is where 56 of my friends, family and followers/members of my Facebook travel page, Daddy Travels Now on Facebook, all booked when this offer came out in 2020. Click here for details how we booked it.We can’t wait. We have a trip planned in 2022.

What I love about this deal, it is fully refundable from Travelzoo. I’ve actually put it to a test myself when I initially made a mistake with my booking. For more details on their cancellation, see below.

You & Me Cocoon Maldives

According to their website:

You & Me is a private, rustic and romantic island, in a beautiful, untouched corner of the Maldives. A world away from the stresses of everyday life, You & Me is the place to relax, curl up, and spend some quality ‘us time’.

A brand new, 5-star resort, You & Me is located in Raa atoll, northern Maldives, just 20 minutes by speedboat from Ifuru domestic airport, or a 45 minute, scenic seaplane ride from Male’ international airport.

Adults only island, targeting couples, honeymooners and friends, the resort is a quiet, relaxing retreat, far away from other hotels.

My suggestion

These deals go quickly. Act fast! This is one of those where you could:

Ann & Frank’s experience at You & Me Cocoon Maldives

Frankly, these deals are sometimes too good to be true. BUT, I know of someone who actually stayed here recently.

Ann Nirintron is also a member of that group and she and I started chatting offline. While she didn’t book directly with Travelzoo, the resort was able to give her a nearly similar deal. And of course, I had since invited Ann to join our FB group. Fast forward. She agreed to present her story. I sent her a laundry list of questions. And you will see all the details:
  • Preparation for this trip
  • How she booked it
  • Using AA miles to book Qatar Airways Qsuites (worth $13K)
  • COVID Protocols and Testing
  • The overall resort experience (dining, activities, upgrades)
  • Overall cost of this trip
  • Her lessons-learned, her takeaways and my takeaways
Thank you, Ann!!! I know I asked a lot of questions, but I think the outcome paid off. Thanks for trusting me to share your journey. Click here for Ann & Frank’s trip report.
