MALDIVES (surprise trip)

It would be fair enough to start this blog with the best trip in my life…. So, that’s how everything began.
It was one of those days when everything goes wrong and you simply want to turn on some music and forget about the world. I was sitting on my sofa, listening some heart wrenching song when the phone rang.

“Forget about it, I planned something for us. I didn’t want to mention anything before the day we go, but I really want to cheer you up…”

I was confused and impatient to hear all.

“Pack your luggage. Next week we are going to Maldives !!! “

He always knew how to make me smile. That was my dream travel destination and you can’t even imagine how excited I was.

GETTING THERE

The trip was quite long. It took us nearly 24 hours to get there. Connections from Zagreb are not the best. We took a flight to Doha, waited there  5 hours until next flight for Male, the capital of Maldives. We finally landed early in the morning and as the plane doors opened, we regret that we weren’t dressed appropriately. It was hot and humid and we were in long sleeves. I knew where we were traveling so I packed  shorts in hand luggage, but one important thing that I didn’t know and actually read it in Doha airport is that population of Male is almost all Muslims. It was obviously inappropriate to wear shorts. I saw some tourists dressed like that, but I always try to maintain an open mind. If you go somewhere, then you are a guest there, act like one and show some respect for other customs. Luckily, one lovely lady from our resort waited for us and took us in the air conditional lounge where we waited one more hour for a seaplane to take us to resort.
Important thing that you should know if you are planning a trip is that seaplanes start operating at sunrise and stop before sunset, so if your international flight arrives after 4 pm you will have to spend the first night in Male.
It took us little more than an hour before we finally reach the resort and trust me, just one look at that white sandy beach, turquoise water and palm trees were worth all the trip.

MAALIFUSHI RESORT IN MALDIVES

The friendly staff were waiting for us on the dock. Generally, Maldivians and other people working there were so kind and to say that we were treated well would be a huge understatement. While we waited to check in they offered us with fresh coconut, a traditional welcome drink, which turned out to be real refreshment after the exhausting trip. After checking in, the driver pick up us with a buggy and took us on a short tour around the island and explained to us everything before he brought us to our water villa.

We both stayed in many luxury hotels before and saw amazing rooms, apartments and houses, but this one left us speechless. It was located on the northwestern end of the island . We had a view of the reef, the ocean and the sunset and we didn’t even have to leave our king sized bed for all of that because bedroom faced the sea with enormous windows. I couldn’t even wish for something more romantic. It was like the dream come true. On the terrace we had a private infinity pool and the sundeck where we spent a lot of time. We also got the bikes so we can easily reach every corner of the island.

You can find some great offers for Mallifushi resort and many more on the booking.com .

FOOD

The only thing I didn’t like there was food. It’s some mix of Indian, Shri Lankan and Thai cuisine very hot and spicy even for me (and I like spicy food). Expensive and fairly limited. Fish, fruit and coconut are the main ingredients of most dishes and actually the only meal I liked was breakfast where we could choose between a large selection of fresh fruit and other healthy snacks.

MALDIVES WEATHER

Maldives enjoy dry and wet season. Of course, it’s better to go in the dry season from December to May, but there is little or no change in temperature between. Even the dry season can have some bad days. Don’t worry about that because it never rains for long.  After 20-30 min. you will enjoy the sun again.

No matter dry or wet season, if you have opportunity to go there and see this heaven on Earth, don’t miss that. It’s once in a lifetime experience.

If you want to know more about activities in Maldives, which are the best and what you mustn’t miss you can read  about it in my next post ( here. ).

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into
    starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      Hi Noella, I’m quite new in this job ( started my blog month ago) so I’m still learning. You will have to invest some money and time if you want to earn money from your blog. I have a great web developer who helped me alot to start this blog but now I do everything alone. It is not so difficult if you are willing to learn. 🙂
