A Memorable Trip: Maldives

A Memorable Trip: Maldives

Hi Everyone,

Right now, I’m in a very happy mood because I’m going to share a very memorable trip details with you guys. We visited Maldives in the month of March. I know we are a little late uploading this blog post but coming back from that place then sorting our vlog and doing some more trips took all of our time. Nevertheless, I’m posting and sharing this with all of now.

After I got married, this was my first aboard trip. Earlier, we planned for this trip in February but then we decided to go there on my birthday so we froze it for March. I always wanted to go to a beach destination where it would be peace and relax. Bealieve me, Maldives is a perfect destination for it. We started our journey on 10th March night for a 4 night 5 days holiday and booked The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Resort. As we are also covering travel on our blog and channel, we decided to capture all the moments for our Vlog and pictures for our travel post. We reached Delhi International Airport and we somehow managed to grab our plane. The immigration took us so long that we were almost about to miss our flight. We traveled through Air India till Maldives International Airport i.e. Male which took around 5 hrs 30 mins. At the international airport there were two representatives from the hotel who helped us board our domestic flight till Ifuru Domestic Airport and from there we took speed boat ride to reach our resort which took us around 1 hr 30 mins more.

When we reached the domestic airport, we have been escorted by Mr. Saiya who was our personal butler for the rest of our stay. After reaching the resort and looking at the breathtaking view of the whole island, Saiya gave us a small brief of the hotel and took us to our villa via a buggy. We booked Horizon Water Villa which was situated above the sea with an incredible view of the ocean.

The room was perfect for me and Saurabh with a comfortable double bed, a small lounge area inside the room, a huge washroom with one shower area, bathtub, two washbasins and all kind of toiletries. In front of our bed, there was a huge balcony with the ocean view with Jacuzzi and a way to step down to the sea for snorkeling. We have also covered our whole room tour in our Vlog Part 1:

We absolutely love our room, the unbelievable view, the whole beauty of the island and the resort. This was one of my dream destination which I was living. The first day we relaxed by chilling in our Jacuzzi while watching the sunset, walking on the beach and eating pasta at their Italian restaurant. The resort has fifteen different restaurant and bars, two swimming pools, recreation center, dive center, Spa, a boutique for your shopping, water sports, etc. In short, it was a small island but you will find all kind of necessity and luxury available.

The second day was my birthday which we spent by going for snorkeling after our breakfast. We had so much fun doing snorkeling where we covered two different islands and saw the beautiful marine life. The underwater life is so serene and beautiful that you will feel you are in another world. Upon our return, we had our three-course dinner at The Trio Restaurant and Saiya organized a beautiful birthday cake for me at the restaurant. It was the best birthday ever!

The next day we realized that we got bad sunburn because of the snorkeling. So, we decided to enjoy our stay and to do few shoots at the resort. Our room also got upgraded from Horizon Water Villa to Horizon Sunset Water Villa. For dinner, we tried the Indian restaurant at the hotel and we love the food. The chef personally asked us how do we like our spices and he made our dishes accordingly. The fourth day we went for Kayaking and we enjoyed thoroughly. You can see all the details from second till we came back in our second part of our Vblog:

I would personally recommend you to stay at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, if you are traveling to Maldives because the staff is very humble and helpful, the resort is exotic, amazing breakfast and lots of restaurants to choose from (Indian restaurant was our favorite), lots of water sports activities to do and most importantly its peaceful and quite.

    Maldives is the perfect beach destination, isn’t it? It seems spotless, with pristine white silky soft sand beaches. And the color of the water is so gorgeous. The resort is amazing.

    I’ve wanted to go to the Maldives for the longest time – it looks so beautiful and relaxing and I’m desperate to stay in a water villa so I can wake up every morning to the sea outside my door! So pretty!

      Thank you for your lovely comment. 4-5 nights are enough for a staying on one island at Maldives but if you would like to cover 2-3 island or different resorts then you can stay 2-3 days on each of them to enjoy the view and your holiday.
