Travel brings power and love back into your life – Rumi
More than 1,000 coral islands, beaches, blue lagoons, extensive reefs, Gosh! This place is heaven.
The Maldives always captivated me with its charm, and no doubt when my husband suggested this place for our anniversary, I jumped at the opportunity with great happiness. Although It was a small excursion, we were happy we celebrated our special day on this breathtaking island at Lily Beach Resort & Spa.
Our itinerary was from Mumbai to Kochi – Kochi to Male and after reaching Male we again had to board the domestic flight transfer followed by half an hour speedboat ride to the resort, so the total travelling time was almost 11 hours (including waiting and transferring) which was a bit overwhelming for a small trip but after reaching the resort our experience was just wonderful.
On arrival, they welcomed us with a tropical drink and briefed about the activities but knowing that we had a limited time we decided to try only a few such as snorkelling, swimming, Jacuzzi bath, sunset view and a beautiful romantic dinner near the beach. Also, I believe that nature has its own therapeutic values so when we are at such a place we make sure to spend quality time celebrating the nature rather bustling around the activities but it’s a personal choice so no offence.
After check-in formalities, it was time to enter our Lagoon villa, and finally, when we entered……oh boy! “our eyes got lit up with the zing”. It had an open Jacuzzi bath, a canopy bed, sun deck, and beautiful ocean view and without even wasting a second, we hopped into the Jacuzzi bath and after 11 hours of a journey, believe me, it was pure bliss!!
Our third anniversary night at the beach with candlelight dinner was something very special to me as we spent cosy time reminisce the past years. We are kind of a couple who love shooting the breeze but due to the work commitments, these type of nights have become luxury, therefore I was really happy that we spent a quite remarkable night on our special day.
I fell in love with the beach swing as I lay down inside and spent hours staring at the vast blue ocean without any distraction and meditate – nothing better than doing a meditation in the lap of nature, It’s an opportunity to surrender all the negative vibes, memories and thoughts to bring back new refreshing energies to your heart. It helps me to transport and connect myself with positive vibes whenever I need it again.. and trust me it helps!
Overall It’s been a great experience and you’ll love this place a lot if you’re looking for an exclusive “Me Time” experience. The Resort where we stayed is a bit expensive but if you’re on a shoestring budget there are various sites offers a great deal of budget-friendly packages…. Also, I’m just a ping away to assist you if you need any help 🙂
Now where will be my next destination?? Hmm…I don’t know… hope it will happen soon but till that time…Live, Love and Laugh and please don’t forget to follow me on Instagram…. 🙂
