2 weeks in Hawaii vs 1 week in Maldives

Jump to last reply

Not sure which forum this belongs in, but related to my other hawaii post, my husband and I are planning a holiday for my 30th birthday and have another minor dilemma. I have always wanted to go to the Maldives, and it is almost half the distance/travel time from London as Hawaii, but also multiples of the price. For anyone who has been to both places, is it worth 1 week in the Maldives at a mid-range resort or 2 weeks in Hawaii at top choice resorts?

To give an idea, first choice would have been the W maldives, but at about USD 10k for a week, room only, not an option for this trip...maybe a honeymoon, but not this one! For roughly GBP 3,500, we can do flight/10 nights hotel in maui or kauai, or flight and 1 week hotel/flight for the Maldives, but not at any of my first choice accommodations.

is the extra week in hawaii worth the distance over the maldives?
