Maldivian honeymoon, part 3

The island was conveniently located only 25 mins by speed boat from the airport in Male

Passions shared at Huvafen Fushi

Looking out at the coral reef was a favourite pastime

Sharing a luxurious champagne jacuzzi bath overlooking the ocean - the height of decadence

Heading for a follow up visit to the spa - "Lime"

Taking a break from the sun in the well appointed and air conditioned library and movie theatre (called The Lair)  - a great selection of books, DVDs and magazines - and several Apple Macs with hi speed internet.

Bear enjoying a drink with the resort manager as we wait for the chef to prepare a wonderful multi course barbeque 

This place encouraged peace and tranquility

The resort really shimmered in the afternoon sunshine

Naturally serene surroundings

The sound of the waves gently rolling in was a beautiful and romantic backdrop

To say it was a stylish getaway is an understatement

A glass of freshly squeezed juicy of the day was mandatory every morning

We met a lovely couple of fellow newlywed Londoners, David and Andrea, and here we are enjoying several drinks and later we boogied to music played by the guest DJ  Poet Name Life (official DJ to Black Eyed Peas The END world tour)

Suffice to say we all got on like a house on fire, and we look forward to meeting up with them back home

Bear took the opportunity to enrol on a PADI scuba diving course and loved the experience and being up close to the amazing marine life

We both had to prepare mentally for the inevitable return home

We really had such good fun and laughed a lot..

An exotic breakfast to be followed by an invigorating swim in the ocean was a great way to start the day

We still found time for our caffeine fix

A warm sea breeze as we are enjoying a cool cucumber gazpacho 

I managed to avoid the temptations of the beautiful jewellery on sale at the boutique store (still in love with my shiny new rock on my wedding finger!)

We enjoyed several distinctively dirrerent gastronomic experiences - here at the fine dining restaurant called Salt...

... where we shared the biggest seafood platter ever - so much lobster, crab, prawns, reef fish, calamari, scallops, mussels - it was heavenly and of course we cleared the plate!

Bear with the yoga master by the beach for an hour long session as the sun was setting - serene.

Jet Ski was another one of the activities we tried  -  and boy was it fun! (Bear let me drive for a short time before he took over again!)

Our large  bungalow made us feel protected and invincible with ultimate privacy

We truly loved the Maldives and hope to return again one day in the not too distant future :-)

Kan inte få nog att se på er underbara resa! WOW. Tror närstan att jag måste visa min Mark bilderna så han förstår vilken slags honeymoon jag vill vill ha den dagen det är dags för oss! Ni ser så lyckliga ut, och inte undra på det!

Fint att du kan fortsätta använda din Fendi clutch, den är verkligen jättesnygg. Passar perfekt till sommarväder. Vit och lite mindre storlek. Har du en ny Chanel klocka också? Snygg!

Jenny: Ja man kan ju inte vara annat an lycklig dar! Rekommenderas starkt! Ang min Prada clutch sa kopte jag den for brollopet da den har ett avtagbart axelband, perfekt som sommarvaska, sa jag kunde fortsatta anvanda den och inte bara pa just min stora dag :-)
