Sun – check. Blue water – check. Amazing location – check.
I think I’ve found the most incredible place on Earth.
This is Amilla, a modern and architecturally designed island resort, plonked on one of the thousands of sandy islands in the Maldives.
This is the sister resort to Finolhu where we spent our first couple of nights in the Maldives.
Our room is spectacular. It’s the only word for it. Or maybe huge.
The view makes it!
This is the location for Rebecca’s 40th birthday celebration – which started with watching the sun come up over the water.
Then an early morning snorkel off our bungalow, seeing the Blue Hole, a dive sites filled with colourful coral and fish.
Then it was bubbles for breakfast, followed by some beach time and stand up paddle boarding.
I tried it again. And was crap at it.
Lunch (a $56 hamburger), then a true highlight – a trip to our own deserted island. A sandbank, with a couple of beanbags, an umbrella and some refreshments.
And to top it all off, a private seafood bbq on the beach.
I reckon it’s a pretty good way to celebrate your birthday.
It’s a beautiful place and what an amazing experience.
