How the colors of the sky transition as the clock ticks. How the sun provides effervescent shades. How the swirls of blue and white are marvelously scattered in the sky. How the sounds of...

What a trip! Superb staff Amazing blue waters U get everything u expect from an island at one place. A bit costly but worthy Infact Maldives is a costly trip. Only cons is non availability of proper vegetarian food. Yet the chef did his best for us. Go visit if u can.
