Do you remember the poll published a few weeks ago? I asked you for advice about a dream vacation to celebrate my 40th birthday. The destination that won was ...the Maldives!
The time to organize the trip and here I am in Lhaviyani atoll in the Maldives.
Palm Beach Resort & Spa where I’m staying has given me what is necessary to be able to tell my experiences directly from here!
Who hasn’t wanted to come to the Maldives? If you want some information or you have queries or questions, you can put them in the comments to this post and I’ll deal with them in real time.
I came to Madhiriguraidhoo Island home of Palm Beach Resort & SpA by a direct flight from Rome in 8 hours plus a seaplane transfer from Malé of about 35 minutes. This transfer allowed me to see a spectacular bird’s eye view of the atolls.
The island is completely at the guests' disposal and the beach goes around its perimeter. To the north a spit of sand pushes into the sea.
And there tonight we enjoyed the sunset during the welcome drink offered by the staff.
Here we are 5 hours ahead of Italy: it is already past 22:00 and the temperature is over 28 degrees. Thousands of stars and the sound of the sea just a few steps away from me keep me company while I’m writing …till next time soon from the Maldives!
