Always wanted to visit Maldives it was my dream to stay in water villa on the island surrounded with Indian ocean and with love of my life.
I don't know how but my dream came true one day i woke up with 2 tickets in my hands everything was sorted out and date was for 20th of June 2014. i was so excited and so was my husband.
We used Singaporean airlines from Brisbane Australia to Singapore had few hours in Singapore airport and next was Singapore to Male 4 hours flight. Once we arrived to Male in the evening we had to stay one night in the city in lovely hotel and next morning we took small jet plane to our island. The view from jet plane was amazing crystal clear water from light blue to dark blue colors water with 1000's of small resorts islands and native islands and villages i have been to many islands before but never seen anything like Maldives.
The landing was fun right on top of the water felt much softer comparing to landing on the ground, stop was next to jetty and lovely friendly staff met us with welcoming drinks and all instructions about resort the keys were waiting for us on our personal table over water bar. We were very jet legged and tired and in seconds were taken in golf car with driver. it was so hot and sunny on the island i couldn't wait to go for a swim.
We had a week in water villa and a week in beach villa. The water villa was amazing surrounded with green Indian ocean full of turtles stingrays and baby shacks. i was so excited to go snorkeling. The bathroom in water villa was big and had shower and bath tube with view to the ocean. the bed was big and balcony had swinging chair sun baking beds and table with chairs. it was bit far from restaurants and infinity swimming pool but we didn't mind bit of exercise s and night walks with millions of stars above us.
because of time difference we never missed breakfast and were on time compare to other couples on the islands. Breakfast and dinner were amazing everyday different and my favorite were sashimi fish and sushi with fruits. Service was fast and staff were very friendly.
During our stay on island we did some fun activities like island hoping,fishing,romantic dinner on the beach and wedding photo session. My favorite were fishing and wedding photo session. Hope islands was fun too except it was very hot, but was nice to see the way true Maldivians live on other islands bit of history and school time. Sunset fishing was a lot of fun we went for 30 minutes away from our island to 25 meters deep sea its been a while since i went fishing so i was really out of practice but surprisingly caught 2 reef fishes i was first one out of our team to catch a fish, my husband caught only one fish. we took some pictures and in the evening for dinner had the same fish we caught with onion tomato and garlic was yummy.
our island also had different program every night including crab racing, world cup soccer and traditional dancing, one night we even had disco on the beach.
in order to stay in shape we went to gym and had some sessions with personal trainer from Sri lanka. it takes about half an hour to go from one side of the island to another. the beach on the island has millions of crabs some Chinese tourist boil them and eat them.
the beach villa was fun too was right on the beach and very close to gym and restaurant we were right next to swimming pool on windy side villa 103 the opposite side also good but its crazy hot like sauna so bit of wind was good for us. Water villa was before the last one left line villa 136 so we felt like we were only one out in Indian ocean such a romantic and unique feeling.
during our holiday it didn't rain at all everyday was sunny and perfect we didn't wanna go back home but everything eventually finishes and on our 10th day we had few days in Male city. Male is great for local food and shopping but not for relax very busy city and people can rip you off very easy so if you visit Male don't forget to bargain otherwise it will be crazy expensive.
thank you Medhufushi for having us and we can't wait to be back very soon! Hope my review will help new travelers and you will enjoy it!
