Inspiration: Postcard from the Maldives

September 28, 2015


My husband and I are always up for a tropical adventure, and this September we flew to Dubai to catch one of two daily flights to the Maldives’ capital Malé. From there it was a 45-minute seaplane flight to our resort, which occupies its own island and features a beachside restaurant, marine biology labs and a jungle cinema.

We stayed at a cozy bungalow with its own wading pool, and a private overwater deck looking out over the aquamarine Indian Ocean. We explored the island on bicycles accessorized with our monograms. While on calm nights we’d float in the water looking up at the twinkling stars above, or take a boat to explore the local marine life that includes schools of manta rays or olive hued Ridley sea turtles.
