Blue Lagoon

Fashion Me Now | Touch Down In Paradise_-64

Three taxis, four planes and a night in Mumbai later, and we were gliding over the turquoise atolls and arriving at our very own blue lagoon in the Maldives. We were ready to be as lazy as humanly possible and couldn’t wait to soak up this azure-ringed paradise that’s been on my bucket list ever since I used to flick through the travel brochures that came through my parents letterbox when I was little.

Our first stop was the beautiful Conrad Rangali Island. Two islands connected by a long, sweeping bridge and Dhoni boat service, with the signature water villas snaking out into the lagoon. I swear the feeling of bare feet on a hot wooden boardwalk might is almost as good as powdery sand…. We were staying in one such bungalow over the water on stilts, complete with hot tub and private spa room so you can really get into the spirit of spoiling yourself. Every bit of the rooms are designed to maximise your view of the ocean so you’re rarely out of sight of that ridiculous coloured water. Even brushing your teeth in the morning feels good when you’re faced with all that blue..

We started as we meant to go on, treating ourselves to fresh lobster and mojitos at Vilu restaurant (our favourite we went to) followed by a massage the next morning in the over-water spa. The spa rooms have glass floors so you’re treated to an underwater show by the technicolour cast of The Little Mermaid while your therapist gets to work on those stress knots. In a word, heaven. Another must is the Mandhoo restaurant which focuses on whole, organic food designed to make you feel amazing from the inside out. Plus its super romantic and kind of feels like a little secret which is always nice innit.

Everyday, we’d head down to the beach and get our icy, freshly chopped coconuts complete with tropical flowers, wade into the water and wallow around with the fish until the rain clouds would roll in and we’d have to make a dash for the nearest umbrella as the skies turned grey. Although somehow even the storms in the Maldives look good…
