After 2 weeks in Malta we were pretty much tired of the cold and wet weather. Diogo was even ill with flu and fever. So we decided to leave for 16 days to one of our all time favorite destinations: Maldives!
We booked a roundtrip flight with Turkish Airline (Malta-Istanbul-Male) as they have not only wifi onboard free of charge but also bed-style seats on Business class, so we could sleep during the entire trip.
Our first resort was the wonderful Jumeirah Vittaveli known for its incredible Ocean Villas only reachable by boat! The villa was spacious with a first floor where we had a second bathroom and the bedroom area.
It was the most original villa we have stayed so far in the Maldives! The idea of total privacy was a big plus!
Finally we were back to the warm Island life!
The first evening we went to a private sunset cruise onboard of a luxury power yacht with vegan food and organic fresh juices onboard.
For dinner, we went to Fenesse (a French Restaurant) to enjoy a delicious vegan degustation menu accompanied with a bottle of Champagne under the stars.
Next morning, I finally tried Yoga! Yes, I had never tried it before. Our Yoga Master was from Kerala, India. Now, I’m completely in love with Yoga and can’t wait to go to India on a Yoga Retreat!
After our morning yoga session, we spent the rest of the morning snorkeling on a coral reef reachable by boat.
In fact, we went again on a private yacht accompanied with 3 staff members to discover a wonderful coral reef near the resort. It was amazing to do it privately, usually resorts do group sessions of snorkel. A private experience was much more romantic and we truly enjoyed it! The staff was very attentive and friendly.
After 45 minutes snorkeling around, we came back to the boat and enjoyed the ride back to the Island.
We were really impressed by the incredible amount of water sports, Jumeirah Vittaveli was providing to its guests.
I’m always afraid to get bored in the Maldives, but here we had plenty of activities to get entertained!
For evening, we went to the sumptuous Indian Restaurant, Swarna, and tried its degustation menu with 17 dishes! Don’t worry, they are actually very very small and come altogether in a huge plate, as you can see below:
The next day we went to do some jet-ski, which is an activity that I really enjoy,
Have you ever been to the Jumeirah Vittaveli? Let me know how was your experience!
