Happy SATURDAY loves!
Welcome to Paradise, this was my exact feeling when we arrived on our first family vacay abroad!
It´s since over a week now when we returned home from our first family vacation abroad, we went on the MALDIVES. As I got a lot of questions lately on where we stayed at, how we liked it and why we chose this location for our trip I want to answer your questions in this post.
The Maldives, a real dream destination and get-away when you are a fan of white beaches, turquoise water and tranquility. This was our fifth time visiting the Maldives and each time we go there we choose another island because each one is so unique and different. Also, we always have a look for an island which has a dive club as it is a big big hobby of my hubs and was also mine before Emma Rose joined our life.
This time we visited the Furaveri Island Resort which is located in the Raa Atoll and was newly opened one year ago. They have around about 100 villas, Water villas included. We had a new beach pool villa which was definitely a dream come true, everything is quite spacious (155 m²) and bright and you have a direct view to the ocean which was awesome! When we booked so far a hotel room it was important for me that it was spacious as you have a lot of stuff for your baby with you and keep in mind that a baby crib will be put in your room as well and you want to move yourself in any way ;-). When you enter the beach pool villa there is a huge room in which you´ll find on the left hand side a kitchen with coffee machine, electric kettle and minibar and on the right hand side a masterbed with direct access to the sundeck where you have your own pool and sun lounges. The windows are huge and the view is really gorgeous. By entering the room you will also go through your own closet (there are two! separate ones in your room) before entering your spacious bathroom where you will have also two outdoor showers, yes, TWO ;-). They provided a little baby crib for Emma and it was also equipped with a cute mosquito net, she felt very comfortable in and they changed the mats almost every day for her. Every day the room service (there are only men who make up your room) made perfectly our villa and sometimes put also flowers on our bed, dreamy! What was also important for me that it was a baby friendly hotel and all the Maldivians are really, really, really family friendly! They also have a children´s playground (though too early for Emma but we will come to this stage closer and closer).
They only have one restaurant so far but also provide you freshly cooked baby food in case needed. Emma is now in an age in which she wants to try different kind of food and loved eating pasta with tomato sauce, chicken sausages, steamed vegetables, bread with or without butter, potatoes, (sometimes cucumber), slices of water and honey melon, papaya, bananas or Rambutan, like mommy ;-).
In their small boutique you can also buy some diapers. We did so in order to save some luggage weight and of course space.
Don´t forget to bring your own baby medicine with you in case you need something and your baby doesn’t feel well. If you would like to hear my tips, don´t hesitate to ask me.
I hope I could give you a good insight into how our family travel was with our little Rosie Rose and let me know in case you plan to go to the Maledives as well, I can give you some tips!
Can´t wait to plan our next family trip which will be in a few months.
