Gili LankanFushi, Maldives : Destination Dinner, Sunset Sailing, World’s Biggest Overwater Villa


Hi Everyone, πŸ™‚

This my final post from a dream called, Maldives. πŸ™‚

After some morning ocean swims, I pushed my lazy bum to get got ready to visit the biggest overwater villa in the world. Our Mr Friday took us around. It was HUGE with many bedrooms, lounge areas, dining areas, bathing areas, cinema area, gym, water slides, walking closets, …you name it and it had it. It made our huge Crusoe residence look small. loll! It’s great for families but sometimes couples also come and stay there. You have to see the pics below. πŸ˜€

Later in the evening we did the sunset sailing in a gorgeous wooden boat sipping glasses of champagnes and watching the sun go down. Truly romantic.

Gili LankanFushi hosted a gorgeous destination dinner for Sanjeev and me at their ‘One Palm Island’. We had our private chef and a butler at our service. There was only sound of the waves for the music and a canopy of stars for the magic. Just the two of us – our secret talks and yummy food. It was special and we’d never forget it. πŸ™‚

Maldives was a dream come true. I don’t know how will we like any other destination ever again. But it was such a pleasure that weΒ couldn’t be more grateful that we got to experience this piece of paradise together.

So..until next time is all I can say.

And you guys, I love you. Thank you for being a part of this magical experience. I realllly hope with all my heart that each one of you also get to experience this heaven on earth. πŸ™‚

Leaving you with some stunning pics that Sanjeev clicked! :))

Some travel Information for your help :

Flight : We had a Delhi-> Columbo 3.5 hour flight and a connecting flight from Columbo to Maldives (1 hour). Same was the way back.

Visa : On Arrival. The airport authorities would give you a form, you would just have to fill that up.

Things to Do in Maldives : Snorkelling, Kayaking, Destination dinner (if your budget allows), lazy time at the beach / in ocean, sunset sailing, dolphins watching, sunrise and sunsets, beach sports such as parasailing, water boars etcΒ (if you prefer). And most important, spend a LOT of time together. Don’t get too caught up in doing all the activities. Do some, leave some but make time for love. πŸ™‚

    Hey Rati…. I wanted to knw frm wher you bought ur pink nosepin…. I really lov it….n some shopping tips on whr to shop in delhi….Thnk u:)

    • Rati says:

      I mostly get it from a sop called silofer’s in gk1 m block market. But there are many other silver shops around there. You can get it easily from anywhere. :))

      I love shopping at select city walk, gk mblock market, khan market. But we also have ambiance mall and dlf promenade here. DLF emporio is great for luxury shopping.

      For real street shopping there’s lajpat nagar and sarojini nagar.

      If you have time, you could explore shahpur jat for wedding wear and hKV village for lovely quaint restaurants and some lovely little shops for knick knacks. πŸ™‚

      Thank you :))

    Hey Rati ,

    You do a splendid job with your posts and blogs about the travels. Sanjeev captures it so well that we all can see how exactly you spent your entire trip out here.

    I have to go there for my birthday with my bf! Could you guys provide a budget basis on places like MaldIves and what is daily rates and other expenditures for this trip.

    It would highly help people who plan to their trip.

    Keep going. You guys are doing a fine job.
