Clearest crystal blue waters, the most beautiful beaches – the best time awaits you on your Maldives holiday! You don’t even need to do Photoshop or use any filters here. I had to look at my mobile several times before I could understand that the picturesque blue sky, the turquoise water and the white beach are really real!
One of the newly opened luxury resorts in the Maldives is the 5-star paradise “Faarufushi Maldives” in the Raa Atoll, which is about 35 minutes by plane from the airport in Malé. From the airport Ifuru, it takes only 10 minutes by speedboat to get to the resort. Raa is located in the western atoll chain and is one of the larger atolls of the 26 Maldives atolls. The beautiful resort was only opened in March 2019. Here you can also relax and unwind yourself in the warm temperatures of the Maldives.
Welcome to pure Nature
Already at the arrival, one feels that with the huge area of 411 x 173 meters, something is different about this big island that sets it apart from the others. And truly my sixth-sense didn’t deceive me!
Not as with many other islands, where everything was torn down for the construction of a resort and again “put on,” here the resort had integrated the beauty of nature in it.
Already on the way to the water or beach villa, one has to take countless pictures of the natural style. Apart from the click of the camera, the roaring sea and the flying bats, one will not hear anything on the island Faarufushi. One will not notice the silence at all, as one already feels it right after the arrival.
My first Ocean Villa
The 80 private villas are located either directly on the beach or above the water. On the island Faarufushi, I slept over the sea for the first time! Our “Ocean Retreat with Pool” was about 163 m2 in size and shone in friendly natural wood tones. Every morning I could watch the sunrise from my bed and had a fantastic view of the sea 24/7.
On the terrace, we could choose if we wanted to cool down with our private access to the sea or in our infinity pool. Often I just enjoyed the view in the beach chair or the bathtub in our spacious minimalist bathroom. I didn’t like to leave our water villa for dinner or discovery tours. It was just that blissful!
The way to the heart is through the stomach
With three restaurants and two bars, you can embark on a culinary world tour. I personally had several culinary highlights at Faarufushi Resort. The breakfast in the Iru Restaurant could be served directly at the beach – A fantastic breakfast with an indescribable view!
But this gigantic view was topped again in the evening at the Boli Bar and the terrace of the restaurant “ECLIPSE” with a pink sunset and exquisite grill dishes.
My absolute favourite was the Athiri Restaurant on the beach with its Italian and Spanish cuisine as well as Teppanyaki.
The Maldives is probably one of the most understandably famous honeymoon destinations. But pure romance can also lead one directly to getting a taste of being married!
Why? Have you ever spent 2 weeks with your partner on a deserted island? No?!
Don’t worry! Sounds worse than it is!
But with a romantic couple massage in the Nika Spa area, all small tensions on the body are eased away and simply forgotten. And who can’t relax and glide in the breathtaking underwater world while snorkelling together?!
But the Maldives is not only a dream destination for those who have just arrived from the registry office. Also a long-lasting marriage, relationship or friendship is a reason for paradise!
- On the Maldives the whole year is summer but in my opinion, the best Maldives travel season is in May, June, September, or October. In these months there is generally less going on in the travel world, one gets better offers and enjoys the advantages of the low season.
- Especially in the low season, you can fly to the Maldives for 550€-600€. Holiday pirates have mostly summarized the best deals! However, you often get a better deal if you book the accommodation and the flight together.
- Don’t forget the sunscreen! Especially on cloudy days, you can get the ultimate tan!
- You can definitely leave the make-up at home! The #beachlife look and the softly tanned skin will enchant you with a natural beauty that will make any make-up pale in comparison!
So let’s get started with booking your Maldives holiday!
