February 7, 2016 – Sunday
All of us are excited for this day cos we will get to experience what it feels like to be on one of the hundreds most luxurious private resorts in Maldives. Well as for me, I’d say it’s luxurious, I don’t want to spend US$550.00 for just one night alone. I usually travel on a tight budget, but as long as you do some research and plan ahead of your trip, you can experience it all without thinking too much on the budget. You don’t need to be rich to travel.
The Hotel also offers an all-in package which is quite worthy of our 100 bucks. And it is a 5-STAR private resort! Yay!
I was able to take pictures of other packages offered by other hotels, and prices are almost just the same.
Call time was 8am so we needed to have breakfast as early as 7am.
I love their buffet breakfast!
Fast forward ->
My first time to ride an elegant speedboat (lol yeah!) we only have typical bangka (boat) back home.
The view on the way was fascinating ❤
After 20 minutes, we’ve reached our destination 🙂
not-so-excited to get off 😛
At the gate, we were welcomed by the guide in the resort and put a wristband ticket on us. They gave welcoming drinks and cold towel as well.
Before, I only see water villas on TV and pictures. But now, I’m in one of the few 5-star resort in Maldives and it feels so surreal. ❤
This IS paradise! ❤
Changed outfit for our mini photo-shoot
After pictorial, we decided to explore the other side of the resort. We’ve tried the unlimited drinks in their mini-bar
They also have an elegant Nipa Hut that we didn’t missed to take pictures in it.
We returned to our beach chairs (lol i don’t know the exact thing) and wait for 12 noon for the buffet lunch
After that, we explored the front side of the resort which is the one near the clubhouse and where water villas can be accessed.
Of course, we couldn’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime photo op (too bad we couldn’t go near the villas as per strict policy)
Be warned, puro picture ko ang makikita sa mga susunod na picture! haha
Sorry I just can’t help but to upload my pictures! haha mind you, I didn’t upload half of what I have in my phone alone! I also have pictures on my DSLR. 😛
Then we waited for a couple of minutes for the buffet lunch. I love every single bit of it! From appetizers, salads, soups, chicken and beef dishes, vegetables, pasta and dessert! They have ice cream too! (Became hungry just by seeing the pictures and recalling that moment 😦 )
The pee-gees 😛
Some of the dish that I’ve tried.
After more than an hour, we returned to our places (beach chairs. haha!) to rest for a while before we dip in the waters.
The view is very relaxing that you just want to sleep. But we just couldn’t sleep for the day! Need to explore and make our 100$ worth it.
Instead of sleeping, we just chitchat while listening to good music. I brought along my bluetooth speaker! PARTEY!
Past 2:00 in the afternoon we decided to go to the pool
The six of us trying the dome
Enough of the pool, lets get to the real deal. Let me show you my diving skills. haha!
After a couple of hours, we decided to try alcoholic drinks in the mini-bar. yay!
Out of boredom, wahahah!
Goofing around, an hour before we leave the resort:
Beautiful sunset ❤
Even in shallow water, there are baby sharks lurking around.
While waiting for the boat and watching the sunset
Back to the hotel
We just washed up as soon as we got in the hotel. By the way, we transferred to Beachwood Hotel for the night until the 10th of February.
Beachwood hotel is way better than our previous White Sand beach hotel and the buffet breakfast is just on the ground floor. yay! By 8:00pm, we just walked around the area in search for a place to eat. (though all of us didn’t have energy to eat)
Here’s the menu
The only picture I had. I didn’t have energy to strike for a pose either
I ordered Beef submarine. As usual they have big servings, leftover again 😦
So for today’s expenses,
Day Visit to Adaaran Prestige – 100usd
Dinner – 100MVr (sandwich) + 30MVr for iced milk tea
Total of around 110usd
THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE UNFORGETTABLE DAY IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
