I chose Sun Island Resort & Spa 5+ on Ari Atoll
I read reviews wherever possible, checked ratings, scrolled through social networks. I prepared thoroughly, so the vacation went well. There were some minor remarks, but this is no longer critical.
They gave 281 thousand for the rest for two at breakfasts and dinners for 10 nights.1/1
The main disadvantage of the Maldives is the road
We flew with a connection in Dubai, I chose flights with a minimum connection time of 3-4 hours, so as not to get bored, but also not to run around the airport like crazy. Upon arrival in Male, we were not tormented for a long time, but immediately sent to the plane, it takes only 20 minutes to fly to the island on a cornfield, on the way you will be treated to juice. Surprisingly: for all my fear of flying, this one turned out to be not scary at all. The bright colors of the local landscapes were amazing, I wanted to fly over this beauty for a longer time.
We were settled very quickly, in a villa on the beach, as there is a huge surcharge for water villas. The decor is a little shabby, but linen, towels, bathrobes are impeccable. Mini-bar in the room is paid, keep this in mind. One liter bottle of water is provided per person free of charge.1/1
In advance look at the map at the reception where you will be accommodated, and discuss this issue when you check in. There are villas very remote from the beaches, there are those that are located next to a local farm where rabbits, ducks, chickens, peacocks live. Not everyone wants to wake up to the cackling of chickens and the cries of roosters, I certainly didn’t imagine the Maldives that way. What about peacocks? Have you heard those birds of paradise yelling?
The pools are comfortable and beautiful
There is one pool near the main beach. They also provide towels. If you want to swim on other beaches, then take a towel from your room. There are a lot of beaches, some are completely private, you can personally choose your own small corner of the island. All beaches are regularly cleared of branches and corals, it is safe to swim everywhere.
Breakfast from 7 to 10, dinner from 19 to 21
If you are a big eater, you can go for breakfast and dinner several times during this time. Lunches were not included, but we had enough. We drink little alcohol, for the whole vacation I took cocktails at the bar for an additional fee several times. Tasty and beautiful, they cost 10–15 USD. /m8/21m8zuokawpw08k8sswwgwocw.jpg” media=”(max-width: 549px)”>
