Fresh off the high of that amazing Maldivian sunset (champagne-fuelled) cruise at the amazing Kandolhu island, we headed off for cocktails by moonlight (which somehow seems even more special than cocktails by bar-light 😉 ), before heading out to dinner. I say ‘heading out’, we must have walked all of 10 steps to the Sea … Continue Reading

Our final island in the Maldives was definitely one of my favourites of the 8 islands we’d visited! That island was Kandolhu. The fact that it’s included in Small Luxury Hotels of the world was kind of a giveaway before we arrived that it would be good but somehow it still managed to surprise and … Continue Reading

The next morning at Kuramathi began as all good mornings in the Maldives should – with lots of sunshine and a mountain of breakfast! Shortly after, we hopped aboard what I guess is the lazy man’s way to snorkel – a sub-submarine. (There’s no way I could have snorkelled right after eating the amount of … Continue Reading

Kuramathi is one of the bigger islands in the Maldives. It’s long enough that you would probably rather hop aboard one of the many golf buggies zipping through the island than attempt to walk the length of it. The surprising thing here however was the fact that, despite its relative size, it still manages to … Continue Reading

I have such a huge soft spot for this amazing island. As you already know, the islands in the Maldives are pretty amazing and so staying somewhere beautiful almost feels like the norm yet this one managed to stand out even more so. I don’t know if it’s because this was the last island we … Continue Reading

Seeing those dolphins and manta rays in the wild was absolutely incredible and the entire time, I totally forgot that I’d had very little sleep the night before (on account of me refusing to go to bed early and having to wave up very early the next day for the boat ride) – thanks in … Continue Reading

Back in Male, after leaving our second island home in the Maldives, it was so easy to start to get withdrawal symptoms from leaving such an amazing place but thankfully, we still had quite a while left in the Maldives and so the only feeling I was feeling at the time was excitement at heading … Continue Reading

The best part about doing multi-island stays in the Maldives is definitely the excitement of knowing you have another amazing place ahead of you after leaving your previous (equally beautiful) island home. No holiday blues here (something everyone who’s ever been on holidays anywhere amazing can definitely relate to). Then there’s the fact that changing islands … Continue Reading

The next morning at Velassaru proved that the sunshine was indeed here to stay (it’d rained on and off for the first couple of days when we arrived to the Maldives – mostly in the evenings and usually for like 30 mins to an hour but still… 🙂 ). Thankfully this morning, my only plans … Continue Reading
