What’s hot and exclusive in the Indian Ocean? Dispatch soon as I am off to the legendary Maldives for site inspections! I know it sounds dreadful, but who better to seek out the best scuba, snorkel, SUP, surfing, beach walking and golf? Scattered across the Indian Ocean, the 26 atolls and over 1100 islands, are like sparkling gems sprinkled across the crystal-clear turquoise sea.
Swim with Dolphin’s and speedy sea turtles, if scuba diving isn’t your thing, snorkeling is a great option. The reefs and lagoons are so pure and pristine in the Maldives that you don’t have to go deep to see a lot! Palm fringed roof tops, the fragrance of hibiscus wafting in the breeze in your overwater bungalow or tucked in to a beachfront Villa amid a verdant jungle or on the edge of the sandy shores.
Sea Turtles munch on lunch around the reef, schools of colorful fish will envelope you as you float and bob with the gentle rolling tides, become a human aquarium in the gin clear seas.
I plan to visit small villages and discover local arts and crafts and there are mosques to be explored. Whether you are hoping to realize a dream of snorkeling with majestic manta rays, embarking on a surfing safari, pursuing a perfect family getaway, dreaming of a private and unforgettable honeymoon, or just simply desire a true luxury island experience, the Maldives Islands are a picture-perfect choice.
Full report posted soon.
A gracious thank you to the Four Seasons Resorts at Kuda Huraa, Landaa Giraavaru and Four Seasons Private Island. And the Six Senses Laamu Luxury Resort for their generous invitations to indulge in their magical world at sea in the Maldives.
If I don’t castaway, postcards in a bottle soon!
