It might have taken seven months longer than we originally planned, but we've finally had our dream honeymoon. Jay was the one who actually went and booked it, after months and months of not being able to decide on where to go, how many hours of flying I could handle away from the children and how many days was too many he took charge and honestly I'm so glad I did. He booked the sensational Centara Ras Fushi in the Maldives. It was honestly like heaven on earth and exceeded every expectation I ever had. 

We flew into Male airport, which was similar to flying into Venice. Instead of taxi ranks you have sea boats lined up ready to take you to your island. We got escorted to our speed boat  where our luggage had been loaded and enjoyed a beautiful 25 minute ride to Girraavaru Island.
The moment we set foot onto the island we fell in love with the crystal water, blue skies and white sandy beaches. We were welcomed by 5 members of staff who took our bags and escorted us to the reception area where we were given cool towel, a mocktail and then a tour of the island and all the information we would need for our stay. 
We had seven nights staying in one of their Premium Deluxe Spa Water Villa's. That by it's self was incredible, we were quite a walk from the main island but our villa was right over a beautiful part of the reef. We had a private sun deck with a Jacuzzi, sun loungers, over water catamaran net and private steps into the sea. We were greeted with Champagne and chocolates when arrived which was such a thoughtful touch.
The island itself was very small, you could walk around all the way around in about 10 minutes. This was not a problem in any way, the island had four restaurants and three bars, a good size swimming pool and the sea life was exceptional. We spent a lot of our time at the Viu bar which had incredible views across the ocean and a viewing hole where you could watch the sea life below and snorkelling we came across a huge array of tropical fish, squid, sting rays and black tip sharks, every time you entered the water you saw something completely different.

The sunsets were mesmerising every day, you had to stop what you were doing to just sit and embrace them.
Everything about the stay was completely amazing, the staff were the friendliest people we've met and nothing was to much for them, the food was delicious and the snorkelling changed my life. My favourite part of the whole trip was spending real time with my husband. We live such fast pace lives that sometimes we forget all the reasons we love a person, it took about 5 minutes and it all came flooding back. Gosh what a wonderful man he is. (sorry got a bit mushy there)
The memories we created on that island will stay with us for the rest of our lives and I couldn't of asked for anything more.
