Island Living in the Maldives
The Maldives - what an amazing place! Having been quite reluctant to visit, as I thought it might be a bit too quiet, my boyfriend Jim really wanted to go so after much persuasion I gave in and I'm so glad I did. Quite simply it was paradise on earth and I now think this is the best place I have ever visited!
We stayed at Huvafen Fushi a Per AQUUM hotel and having stayed at their property Desert Palm, Dubai last year we were really looking forward to the trip. Everything was perfect with our Deluxe Beach Bungalow, in particular the spacious deck where I enjoyed afternoon naps in the shade, while Jim preferred the daybed by the pool at the back. Our highlight was the snorkelling and the abundance of different fish, closely followed by a couples massage in the underwater spa, which is just like being in an aquarium! We also had the privilege of spending 2 nights in an Ocean Bungalow which really had the WOW factor - endless views of the horizon to gaze over and being on the Oceanside meant having sun all afternoon and amazing sunsets too.
Not only did I get to experience Huvafen Fushi but I visited the brand new Per AQUUM resort, Niyama. The finishing touches are being worked on and it looks like this is going to be another hit with ITC Classics clients. The décor is bright and modern, with each room featuring all the hi-tech gadgets you could wish for including ipads in each room and your very own popcorn maker! This alone gives us the perfect reason to return to paradise!!
