Thinking of a quick beach getaway from India? The best bet is Maldives. The tropical islands with perfect white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters and luxury sums up to it. When planning a holiday to Maldives, choosing a best resort plays an important role and we chose Meeru Island Resort & Spa for our family vacation. Trust me, we didn't regret a bit of it too.
We started our holiday by taking a direct flight to Male from Bangalore in the month of June 2019. It was a quick 2-hour journey where half of the journey on land & the other half on Indian Ocean. We were all excited & boarded our flight on time and here are some views of Indian ocean from 35000 feet,
On-board we were given an immigration form to fill up all our details which had to be submitted later at immigration counter. Upon landing, we could see Etihad, Qatar, Maldivian airlines being parked. We de-boarded from our aircraft & proceeded to immigration counter. As there is visa on arrival for Indians, it was such an easy process to walkin to immigration counter & they will scan the passport, stamp on it & you are done! I can say, this is one of the easiest & quickest immigration I have been through so far.
Coming out of arrival hall, there are plenty of hotel/resort boards displayed & we had to reach out to our respective resort counter so that they could arrange for speed boat transfer to the resort. We were asked to wait for 15mins, in the mean time while glancing at surroundings we could see blue waters right in front of airport itself. What a beauty it was!!
Our speed boat was ready to depart, their staff helped us in boarding. We settled for window seats to view the endless ocean for miles. Our island – Meerufenfushi, in the North Male Atoll is 30 miles from the capital (Male) accessible by speed boat. It took about 50 minutes, although it was bumpy, the guess work of which island would be ours was going on inside each of us. It was sunset time, we could see the perfect sunset all the way.
