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

From Male we hopped aboard the island boat which was waiting for us and before long, the beautiful island of Velassaru was in sight! The weather … Continue Reading

After our morning snorkelling around the house reef, the rest of the afternoon was devoted to soaking in as much sunshine as possible and splashing around in the pool! The Angsana Velavaru ocean villa pools are a lot bigger than I’d anticipated and, drinks in hand, are a perfect way to make the most of … Continue Reading

The next morning at the Angsana Velavaru, after our fairly relaxed day of arrival into the Maldives – I had two main things planned for the day – snorkelling (the Maldives is, as you already know, amazing for this) and indulging in the spa… actually, make that 3 things – I also planned on getting … Continue Reading
