WOW! What a fabulous educational trip to the Maldives I have just been on, feeling very lucky right now!
One word – Amazing!
I honeymooned at LUX* Maldives 2 years ago so when the opportunity arose to visit several other islands with LUSSO I was very much looking forward to comparing them all. The trouble is they are all beautiful and all so different making it hard to compare so how do you choose? The answer is you come to me because now I have the first hand knowledge to ensure I choose the right island to match you requirements.
I was pleasantly surprised by the weather. At this time of year I was expecting high humidity and lots of rain but we had glorious weather throughout.
Another pleasant surprise was how well some islands cater for families offering 2 to 3 bedroom beach/ water villas.
One of my highlights has to be seeing a turtle whilst snorkelling which was a first for me!
To give you a snap shot I visited 8 islands in 7 days and 5 of which I have highlighted below…

Baros – Extremely welcoming hospitality with excellent customer service  – Nice relaxing barefoot lounge/bar  – Beautifully furnished rooms, detached beach or water villas  – Great house reef – able to snorkel from the beach  – Great sand bank available for private dinners  – High standard of cuisine – You feel very at home here

Six Senses Laamu  – ‘Down to earth’ Quirky, rustic island, very different to others but absolutely loved it.  – Most public spaces are over water, felt like a luxury water-world  – Recommend the water villas, lots of outdoor space with interesting outdoor bathroom  – Perfect island for those into water-sports, particularly surfing  – Excellent house reef, can snorkel from the main jetty  – 4 restaurants offered for dine around when on half board  – Wellness and exercise classes available so plenty to do on this island
