I have made you wait long enough, and it’s time to go inside our water villa.
We arrived after sunset, and this was the romantic view of the interior of our room. You can see the outside shower in the background of the picture. Here we also had the four poster bed with decorative mosquito net style draping like in Gili Lankanfushi.
Here we see the room in the daylight. A very clean, modern look. Nice wood walls, a bench at the foot of the bed where you can tie your shoes (if you were to put any one during your stay). In the box was Steve’s laundry. What a pretty presentation! There were goose neck laps with a high intensity light, that way you won’t annoy your partner, if you are a late evening reader. Outlets were conveniently placed on the walls by the end tables. No need for long extension cords, or plugs not fitting into floor sockets like some places we have been to. Persnickety person that I am, I found nothing to complain about.
The bathroom was more than good sized. You could have put another bed there! A deep soaking tub with bath salts provided. Twin vanities across from each other, not side by side; so you would get annoyed at how messy your partner was with stuff strewn all over the place. The room always had a tremendous number of towels available. On the floor you can see a scale. It was in kilos, so I can’t tell how much weight I have gained.
The last vanity view was of Steve’s. This is my mess. You can see I come prepared with my own emergency medical kit. Have I ever used the band aides, ace wrap or sewing kit? Never. I am lucky that Steve didn’t see this when did our final purge of unnecessary items in our luggage! Water bottles were left by staff on the vanity also. The water was safe to use for brushing your teeth, although it was recommended to drink the bottled water. To the right of the vanity is the dresser with lighted makeup mirrors. We used the area as another flat surface to hold my purse, sunglasses and other detritus.
Look what a good job we did covering up almost all available space with our stuff! I even managed to hang my pants on the chair!
A great view of the soaking tub. I’m not sure how deep it was as I haven’t taken a bath yet. As it is now really Monday and not Wednesday, and we leave Wednesday afternoon perhaps I shall try it out tonight. I sure have a lot of catch up to do for you!We’ll find out if there are bath crystals or bath bubbles supplied. Now to see if I can find a model to pose in the tub for me!
Here you see the shower on the left and the toilet on the right. I can’t tell you how long it took me to figure out that the doors swing both ways, and the bath mat won’t get stuck in the door if you swing the door toward you in the shower. I’m not quite as smart as I think I am after all!
Here we see Steve starting to put away his clothes in the closet. You have to be quick to take pictures before he starts unpacking!
Now we are all unpacked! Can you determine whose sides is whose? Hint, I wear the dresses in the family!
The shower had a rain forest head and a spray attachment. I’m not one for spray attachments, as I am a bit clumsy and might accidentally raise the sea levels, by getting water all over the place. The shower had a great ledge in it where Steve could lay his glasses when he took a shower. He is the only one I know who wears his glasses in the shower. My attitude is that you know what parts are dirty, and where to clean them, and how to do so. When we stayed at the Broadmoor I tried their steam shower with many shower heads. It was delightful
Here is the outdoor shower, all lit up at night. We tried it during the day time but couldn’t quite figure out which handle was for the hot water.
Our very own private cabana lit up at night! I really was besides myself at this point quivering with excitement! Imagine, our very own private cabana that I don’t have to share with anyone but Steve! Heaven!
Plus our very own plunge pool! No, it doesn’t quite get any better than this! We even had two lounge chairs to lay about on if we wanted to sun ourselves!
You wanted a day time view also, didn’t you? In the background you see the spa area. Treatment rooms were in the little villas. Of course Steve and I had treatments. Wait until you see the treatment rooms!
Now for the day time view of the plunge pool. Sorry about the finger on the lower left.
This is the view from the cabana. It seems my fingers keep getting in the way! Our room faced the exterior of the atoll, you could see the waves from the ocean crashing into the outer atoll. As Steve says, the Indian Ocean, next stop Indonesia! Unlike Gili Lankanfushi, there wasn’t too much coral outside our villa. There was an increase in the ocean temperatures a few years ago that killed a lot of the coral. It has been growing back, so there is still beautiful water to explore for you scuba and snorkel enthusiasts! Come visit the Maldives! You won’t be disappointed! visitmaldives.com
