I’ve been wanting to write about my amazing time in the Maldives for a while, but I kept getting distracted, by you know, stuff and things. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I got married in December (you can read all about that here), and I had my honeymoon in the Maldives; I sometimes still can’t believe it. I cannot even begin to describe how beautiful this place is, it’s just absolutely incredible (everything you see on Instagram is true).
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort, Kandooma, a 5 star hotel and totally worth staying at. The service was faultless, and the weather was stunning. We were lucky that the five days we were there for, we had gorgeous sunshine the entire time (the week after there were thunderstorms, ouch).
The airport was on the main island, Malé, which was a 40 minute speedboat ride away from the resort. That was my very first speedboat experience and I loved it, even though I was extremely tired from the plane journey so I feel asleep for most of it, oops.
We travelled from Northern India where it was absolutely freezing, so when we arrived, I was so excited to be in the sun (I was tired of wearing about 4 layers of clothing at all times). When we arrived to the hotel, our luggage was taken to our room, and we were offered a refreshing lychee drink (it was so tasty) in the lounge whilst we were waiting to be checked in. We were given a brief introduction to the island; where to eat and the sorts of activities that were available, after which we were dropped of to our room in a cute little buggy.
Every morning there was a buffet style breakfast, from cereal to full English breakfasts, and a lot of other amazing dishes from all over the world. Despite there being options for so many tasty foods, I couldn’t really stomach the idea of having a huge plateful of food early in the morning so I usually just had cereal (I know, boring).
We had a sea view room with a cute little balcony as well where you could sit and have breakfast, or just chill out. The bathroom was amazing; the shower was separated by a glass door and it overlooked the beach (with privacy of course).
The entire island was just so scenic (as you can expect), and it’s the perfect place for a honeymoon. I’m so grateful that I spent the first few days after getting married in such a beautiful place, just relaxing with my husband. We spent time together, explored the island, went swimming and to top it all off, we had a Maldivian photoshoot. We decided that as we were in such a stunning place, we had to make the most of it.
We had an unforgettable time in the Maldives, and an amazing time at the Kandooma Resort. Everything from the food to the weather was just perfect.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, and let me know where you went on your honeymoon or where you’d like to go.
