I’m going to keep this pretty short since I am trying to vacation and all, but I wanted to pop in and say hello. I arrived at the Conrad Maldives yesterday after a not so glamorous night at the Colombo airside transit hotel, and WOW, it really is all that it is hyped up to be!
The seaplane ride was just long enough to gawk at the beautiful views:
The welcome was warm and inviting right off the bat:
We immediately grabbed lunch at Mandhoo and saw the feeding for some great shark viewing:
Our room (the standard beach villa) is gorgeous. Although I’m not much of a fan of the outdoor shower to be honest:
And for just a couple more pictures:
Obviously full reviews of everything to come, including the over-water villa we’ll be moving to in a few days.
Frankly, when thinking of the Maldives I wasn’t sure I would “get it”. I’ve been to beautiful beaches before but as I type this listening to small waves lap at the beach, with a direct view of the water from the patio, it truly does feel incredibly special.
