HONEYMOON TRIP IN MALDIVES, DAY 2

 
Time check, it’s 6:00 am.
 
We planned to go to gym at 7:00am today before taking our breakfast. The buffet breakfast starts at 7:30am and ends at 9:30am. The breakfast is included in the hotel package we booked in booking.com. But it turns out that the gym opens at 8:00am. Sad.
 
Instead of hanging around the gym and being upset that we didn’t checked the opening hours (as we were really tired yesterday), we checked out other places and took some lovely photos of the early morning sunshine, as it is a bit early for breakfast. The nice scent of the beach and the cool breeze of the morning make it a good place to start the day.
 
After enjoying the scenery and serenity of the morning, we walked towards the Bageecha Restaurant (Main Restaurant for guests occupying the Beach Bungalow). The restaurant serves continental, local & international cuisine so you can choose on the variety of their menu. It is beside the Fukuya Teppanyaki (Japanese Restaurant) and the Daavani Restaurant (Coffee Shop).
 
 
They are also offering other packages that couples can enjoy, but we didn’t avail any of it. But you might want to try them so I summarized it below:

Nevertheless, we go for a canoe rent for USD 10.00 (double) and book for a snorkeling lesson (USD 36 per person/an hour) for tomorrow as the lesson for today have already finished. We were scheduled for Canoeing at 10:30am so we have time to put on our swimming gear and sunblock lotion. We went to the Water Sports Centre and they assisted us in our Canoe. I am not new in paddling, so I enjoyed it. One hour is enough to enjoy the view and to strengthen your muscle J

In the afternoon we tried their table tennis, although I don’t know how to play, but my husband patiently taught me. He was exhausted after we played as he is always running after the ball (hahaha). We also tried the swimming pool; the water was warm and I cannot smell any chlorine (which I usually smell on pools). Only few people are using it during that time. It is also recommended to chill in this area when the sun is at its peak. We were able to take a nap after swimming as the environment invites sleep. It is energizing J

Around 3:00pm, a Filipino duo performed beside the swimming pool. It is a perfect time to relax and enjoy the music while the sun is setting in, with refreshment on the side; it is such a delightful feeling…

We had our dinner in Bageecha restaurant. The dinner buffet cost USD 50.00 per person. We noticed many different nationalities enjoying the various foods the restaurant offers. We take our time as we enjoy our food while observing other people and talking things over dinner. We were full after our dinner so we take a stroll in the boardwalk under the starry night, it was so romantic. J
 
The rest of the day was actually a lazy day. We just feel the environment and enjoy the scenery. We are excited for the snorkeling for tomorrow. I thank God that we experienced this kind of peaceful vacation.
 
God bless us more J
