We found this little gem of a resort in the Maldives which seemed to have everything we ever wanted. If you’ve always thought a holiday in the Maldives would be a costly affair, this one’s just for you! Read on for my comprehensive review of the Wave Sound by 3S Maldives, the best budget resort in my opinion.

Why We Chose Wave Sound By 3S Maldives

The moment we chanced upon this resort in the Maldives on Agoda, we were hooked on to it. Their pictures looked amazing with rooms directly overlooking the beach! Wave Sound by 3S Maldives also had great reviews and a rating of 9.8 on 10.

At $96 per night for a deluxe sea-facing room that included breakfast, it seemed like a steal! Honestly, we had never imagined we’d be able to book a resort in the Maldives at such an affordable price.

Our Experience With Wave Sound By 3S Maldives

Since we hadn’t booked our flight tickets to the Maldives yet, I had sent an inquiry to the hotel staff right after the booking completion. As you can imagine, we were looking for flight options that would be the most cost-effective.

Within minutes of having sent the inquiry, the owner of the resort, Hussain, called me back. Not only did he assist me with the information needed to book the best flights but also said he would provide airport transfers at no additional cost. What’s more, he even asked us about our meal preferences so that they could make the necessary arrangements.

Our Arrival At Wave Sound, Maldives

On the day we arrived in the Maldives, the resort manager, Saeed was present at the Gan airport to receive us. He drove us to Wave Sound where we were welcomed with refreshing cold towels and fresh coconut water. I can’t tell you what a relief they were in the equatorial heat!

My husband and I had exactly the same reaction upon arriving at Wave Sound. It was exactly as we’d seen in the pictures! Rooms overlooking the beach, white sands, turquoise waters, sun deck, umbrellas, hammock, and swings. Everything we could’ve possibly asked for.

We were then escorted to our rooms where another surprise awaited us. Since we were there to celebrate our anniversary, the staff had decorated our room beautifully. The room was really spacious and beautifully furnished. They even had a separate dressing area complete with a closet, mirror, and dresser!

  • Cleanliness – Rooms are cleaned twice a day, something I’ve never experienced even in 5-star hotels! Even though you’re right next to a beach, you won’t be able to spot a speck of sand in your room.
