This is just a quick post to share some of the photos from our last-minute getaway to the Maldives during the Islamic New Year long-weekend.
We stayed at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi for four nights and loved every second of it. Although the flight from Dubai to Male (the Maldivian capital) is only four hours, we had to transfer to a small plane at Male to Kaadedhdoo (50 minutes flight time) and then a speed boat (20 minutes) to reach Meradhoo – the island where the resort was located.
A beautiful, idyllic retreat with spacious guest villas and our own private pool and amazing snorkeling right in front of our beach – we couldn’t have been happier.
Needless to say, we spent most of our time by the pool or by the beach.
Wee Scotch and Scotch devised a toddler-friendly piggy-back snorkeling method. Whenever Scotch found interesting sea life, he would alert Wee Scotch who would then stick his head underwater to find all the little fishies.
Scotch and I had time for one dive on the house reef. I wish I had more underwater photos to share but they didn’t turn our so great.
We spent cocktail hour each evening enjoying the sunset by the main pool while Wee Scotch splashed around with his pirate ship and made sand castles.
A short and sweet vacation and then it was “Bye Bye Maldives!”
