Some random honeymoon snaps



I have settled into Maldives island life quite well...
We have really enjoyed our first week as a married couple and can't stop calling each other wifey and hubby! :-)
Our private sunbathing terrace is on three tiers of wooden decks


Crystal clear lagoon


Enjoying a 'sundowner' 


The staff ratio here is as many as four to each guest, so we are being looked after so well



The pristine water is very inviting as it's roughly 26 degrees 
It's the ultimate retreat for pure relaxation and indulgence


It took  a day or two for us to start unwinding from city life - but now we are now really exhaling and de-stressing

Bear takes a dip in the freshwater pool after a swim in the salty sea


comfort levels definately surpass all 5 star ratings
The sun and it's vitamin D is such an energy booster, but I am very careful to put SPF 50 twice a day on my face



Walking back to our bungalow, located furthest away from the main island which offers maximum privacy


The evenings are warm as the temperature barely drops, and I like to keep cool with an ice cold Long Island Ice Tea


Fresh fish and other food served every evening is cooked however you want it


Powdery white sand perfection


The days are mainly spent resting and reading or simply dozing in the shade
This elegant island is for those who appreciate sun, sea, sand and nature


Gratitude is the overwhelming feeling when staying on this paradise island
We are surrounded by picture postcard-like scenery

So calming and relaxing sitting by the infinity pool
  Our ocean bungalow is aptly named as it looks toward the vast Indian Ocean for miles




We have our own personal butler (or Thakru) who comes to pick us up with a buggy anytime we want to take us wherever we want around the island
Champagne in the jacuzzi is a must


Coming out of the ocean after snorkelling, as it's starting to get dark
Hanging out in the hammock tied to lush swaying palm trees
Happiness is dipping your toes in shades of blue and green that paint the waters


Huge Stingrays came very close up to Bear
