Gorgeous - total luxury, and so warm and friendly
It was our first time in the Maldives, and we found a great deal on a beach bungalow for 9 days. It was a real 'trip of a lifetime' for us. From the moment we stepped off the sea plane and boarded the boat to the island, we were welcomed with open arms and ample (inclusive!) cocktails. Just utterly beautiful. We took a copy of 'Fishes of the Maldives' in the hope of spotting maybe some of the incredible sea life we'd read about. About two minutes into our snorkelling adventures outside our bungalow and we saw a huge array of fish, (friendly) sharks, eels, and we were particularly excited to meet a sea turtle.
The dive team on the island were great, we had an evening learning about coral and plankton and the different species of marine life in the Maldives. Fascinating, and made the snorkelling that much more interesting because we felt better informed about what we were looking at.
The food was outstanding, wonderfully presented and so varied. I ate lots of fish curry and rice but there was also a huge choice of Italian dishes, and even roast beef and potatoes! Amazing fruits including several I'd never heard of before. I definitely ate too much.
Our waiter was fabulous and always remembered what we liked. And on our last night he decorated our table with pictures of dolphins and flowers done in coloured sand. Felt very special.
I know it was supposedly 'once in a lifetime' but I'm already planning my next trip!
