Hello from Gili Lankanfushi in Maldives!

Hello everybody! We are here in Maldives for our honeymoon! Can't believe that it's already more than 6 months since I blogged about planning for this trip and now here we are!

No shoes policy

The moment we boarded the speedboat that the hotel sent to pick us up at Male Airport, we were told to remove our shoes because the resort has a "No News No Shoes" policy. There is complimentary WIFI in all the villas and public areas so it's not totally "No News" if you want to stay connected to the world, but it's true that it's "No Shoes" because everyone on the island walks around bare-footed! 

Villa 42!

Our villa is located at Jetty 3 with a sunset view! There are 2 bicycles for us to cycle around the island. The water is so clear and we can see baby sharks and puffer-fishes around our villa! WHEEEE!!

 Welcome amenity for Honeymooners

Pleasant surprise when we entered the bedroom! So kind of the resort to prepare some snacks & drinks for us to welcome us to the resort! There's also a bottle of Vanilla musk tea which is soooo delicious!

Le hubby is now happily exploring our villa. The first things he noticed are the techie stuff like the flat screen TV that was hidden behind a cloth, the iPod with 5000 songs and many movies, the strongest signal location in the entire villa where he can set up his laptop, the Nespresso coffee machine, the router and even the rechargeable eneloop batteries in the aircon remote control. -_-

For me, I am so happy that I am finally in my dream destination for our honeymoon! Seeing Maldives in real life is 100000000x better than any picture you can find. The waters are so clear, so blue and so beautiful. Our villa is also a dream because it's designed to be so eco-friendly yet it has all the modern luxuries that we are used to, like air-conditioning in the bedroom, rain shower, etc. I love having the ocean just a few steps away and also having so much space to ourselves! :) The bathroom size alone is the size of Le Hubby's bedroom! Wooooo!

Our Ms. Friday is Momoko-san who is from Hokkaido! She is really sweet and efficient and gets things down super fast, just the way I like it! :) Momoko said we are really lucky because it's been raining heavily and the sun only came out a few hours before we arrived! Well, I said it's not luck, it's a blessing from God! :) We pray that the good weather continues throughout our trip!

Alrighty, we are going to head out for our couple spa treatment (our first spa together!) at the Meera Spa! Will update more in detail soon.. but meanwhile, look out for pictures in my Instagram account!
