It was this time of the year again. February is a month full of Festivities.
There is the Carnival (which is not really celebrated in the Maldives), there is also St. Valentine’s Day (14th Feb.), followed by Chinese New Year Eve (15th Feb.) and the most important for me: Diogo’s 33rd Birthday (13th Feb.).
During this last 7 years together, Diogo never really liked to celebrate his birthday, but this time since we were in the Maldives (his favorite country so far), I wanted to surprise him and show him that Anniversaries can also be fun!
Even if it means you getting older every year!
We decided to go to the very new (1 year old) Hurawalhi Maldives – an adult-only luxury resort located in the Lhaviyani Atoll, famous for its worldwide known 5.8 Undersea Restaurant.
In fact, the 5.8 Undersea Restaurant is the world biggest underwater restaurant so far with 10 tables. I managed to get a table for dinner which was at 6 PM to 8:30 PM. We had a Vegan Degustation Menu which was absolutely incredible with fishes swimming all around us. Don’t forget to see the entire special day on my Insta-story Highlight!
For the 14th Feb., St. Valentine’s Day we decided to escape to a remote sand bank nearby called Dream Island, where we were totally alone in the Island!
Hurawalhi Maldives is also an incredible destination for snorkeling and diving where you can see manta rays, sharks, turtles, and plenty of fishes! During Diogo’s b-day, we spent the morning snorkeling around and Diogo even managed to take a selfie with a turtle! How cute they are, right? 🙂
The last evening, we went to their Champagne Pavilion watching the golden hour and drink some Champagne! After all, it was our last evening at the Maldives after 16 wonderful days!
Have you ever been at the Hurawalhi Resort or at their worldwide famous 5.8 Undersea Restaurant? Let me know in the comment section below! I will also post a video of our St. Valentine’s very soon on Facebook so stay tuned!
Special thanks to Hurawalhi PR and GM to have made this stay unforgettable!
