Overwater Bungalow Vacation: Maldives Getaway

This trip was planned for a couple from DC. They are both attorneys and wanted to celebrate their anniversary by simply relaxing. For their celebration, they really wanted someplace different. The answer was a Maldives Overwater Bungalow. We added business class airfare and seaplane transfers to the resort to make the trip extra special.  The Maldives has deep blue seas, turquoise reefs, white sandy beaches and palm trees. It is also a place full of character, where its people have long spent their days languishing in the very essence of idyll living. While it is the perfect place to sit on a beach and watch a sunset with a cocktail balanced on your hand, it is also a geographical marvel, knowing that there are thousands of fish swimming around the vivid corals just a few feet away from where you sit.  Enjoying a prime location in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll island archipelago and on the doorstep of Hanifaru Bay, Anantara Kihavah Villas is the perfect place from which to explore the underwater world of the Indian Ocean. Set on Kihavah Huravalhi, one of the most pristine Maldivian islands, the resort is 30-minute seaplane flight from Male International Airport, an unforgettable experience in itself as the plane flies over a string of glowing coral islands amidst turquoise waters.  Their Maldives Overwater Bungalow vacation was a perfect trip.
