All the adjectives in the dictionary cannot describe this beautiful island country of Maldives.

Perfectly positioned in the Indian Ocean, it is one of those places you can tick of your bucket list. Return travelers, honeymooners, families and those seeking a tranquil retreat are never disappointed. Turquoise waters, palm fringed beaches and fresh air is all you need to unwind.

During my visit, I stayed at the newly opened Amari Havodda and visited a neighboring resort as well. The Amari has a prime position in the unspoiled Gaafu Atoll south of Male. We stayed in both a beach and water villa to experience best of both worlds. To snorkel from the steps of a water villa was an amazing experience. The attentive staff and service standards along with the Maldivian bathroom was some of the highlights for me.

It is very important to choose the right resort. With now more than 100 to choose from and another few opening this year, you can get easily confused by all the choices.

I would highly recommend to visit the Maldives as this is a once in a lifetime experience.
