STV Super Specials
What do these rates mean?

* STV Super Specials are STV's usual SUPER Discounted Special rates, GENUINELY and STRICTLY ONLY available for TRAVEL INDUSTRY Employees resident globally, and are classified as an Employee Benefit. (Available to Airline, Travel Agent, Tour Operator, ATC & Airport Handling Agent Employees)

* You must be a Travel Industry Employee and you must be registered with STV (Free) to be able to book our STV Super Special rates.

* Minimum one Travel Industry Employee per room. You are required to present your I.D. / proof of employment on check-in.

* There is no limit to the number of bookings per year you can book (unless stated otherwise)

* Friends and Family cannot book STV Super Special Rates. They can accompany you but must stay in the same room as you (some hotels permit an extra room for Friends & Family and if so this will be stated on the hotel page, but you must always be included in the booking and be staying at the hotel).

* PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: With STV Super Special rates you only need to pay a very small refundable deposit within 14 days of making your booking, or right away if travelling short notice, and the main balance of the booking is paid direct to the hotel, usually on check-in. It is FREE to cancel or amend dates for your booking, often right up to and including the day of check-in, making these rates great for standby travelers (see each hotels payment & cancellation terms). When you make a booking request with STV Super Special rates and it is confirmed, you do not need to go ahead with the booking and can cancel immediately without paying a deposit if you wish.

* Remember STV Super Special Rates are only available for Airline & Travel Industry Employees as an employee benefit and are the lowest rates you will ever find.


* True Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates are known as ON REQUEST. This means you choose your hotel and Super Special rate and submit your booking request through our website and you will receive a response back from the hotel as soon as possible. Because the rate is so highly discounted, the hotel 1st needs to check if they have enough spare rooms to agree to let you pay these exclusive Travel Industry Employee rates. The hotels will often reply to you the same day but be prepared to wait up to 24-48 hours ~ It's worth it!

* BEWARE of other Interline/Agency companies telling you they offer Genuine Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates with 'immediate confirmation'! This is simply not true, and you are being misled. Hotels need to manually check their availability for Genuine Travel Industry employee rates and this can take 1-2 days. This is why they are known as ON REQUEST rates.

* BEWARE. If other companies tell you your Friends and Family can use the same rates as you unaccompanied, you know they are not genuine Travel Industry Rates! No hotels allow Friends & Families to book genuine Airline & Travel Agency Employee rates unaccompanied, so they are simply selling you rates that are also available to the general public through other channels.

STV have different rates available to Friends and Family to enjoy unaccompanied, they are called STV Direct rates. Because we source such rates in bulk and are the only truly global client and leading company selling holidays to Airline and Travel Agency Employees and their Friends and Family (we have served travel industry employees resident in over 200 countries ~ almost every single country on the planet), we always have the lowest STV Direct rates available anywhere. See STV Direct for these great deals for you and your Family.

About the Resort

South Palm Resort Maldives is a place of unprecedented serenity, privacy, and comfort. Surrounded by white sandy beaches with a clear lagoon, and tranquil blue ocean views of Addu Atoll. Located on a private Island South Palm Resort Maldives is a million miles from the stresses and strains of everyday life.



Kurumba Spa with floating Spa treatment Rooms reach by boat are the First Ever and Only Floating Spa rooms in the Maldives!!


South Palms is reached by a short domestic flight on arrival in Male and then a 10 minute boat transfer. It is well worth the short flight when you see the deal at the hotel we have, and also quite simply for one of the most spectacular views in the world that must be experienced... the Maldivian islands close up from the air!


Cool off with a refreshing dip in the island's infinity pool before retreating to the shade of your sunlounger to dive into your favourite book.


The southern tip of Maldives, Addu is one of the most untouched and interesting atolls in Maldives. With astonishing marine life, all-year-round Manta Ray and Dolphin sightings, fascinating colonial history, and a spectacular southern hemisphere setting.


South Palm Resort Ocean Highlights 

  • Nurse Shark Sanctuary Dive Site
  • Manta Point: Only place in the Maldives with all year round Manta Sightings
  • All Year Round Dolphin Sightings


The atoll, with the 30 unique dive sites all within 10 minutes reach of South Palm Resort Maldives, is a popular destination with divers. For more information on the dive sites click the image above. 


South Palm Resort Maldives is the host of the distinguished Kurumba Spa, which features exclusive floating spa rooms, the only one of its kind in Maldives.

South Palm Resort can be found on the island of Ismehela Hera on the eastern edge of the heart-shaped Addu Atoll.


The island with its own small lake is blessed with stunning ocean views, a beautiful beach, a crystal clear lagoon, and lush tropical vegetation. Close to the local island of Hulhumeedhoo, Ismehela Hera is a great place to explore Addu’s unique cultural heritage.
