I had always dreamed of going to the Maldives. I had seen pictures of the beautiful turquoise water and white sand beaches and I knew that I wanted to experience it for myself. I finally got the chance to visit the Maldives for a week-long vacation with my husband.
We flew into Male, the capital city of the Maldives, and then took a short boat ride to our resort island. As soon as we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty of our surroundings. Our villa was right on the water with a private pool and we spent our days swimming, snorkelling, and exploring the reefs.
The Maldives is known for its amazing seafood and we were not disappointed. We enjoyed fresh fish and lobster every night, often cooked right in our villa by our private chef.
One of the highlights of our trip was a sunset cruise on a traditional dhoni boat. We watched the sun sink into the water as we sipped champagne and nibbled on canapés. It was truly a magical experience.
We were sad to leave the Maldives, but we know that we will be back. It is a truly special place and we feel lucky to have experienced its beauty.
