We have been to the Maldives several times and always gone to a different island every visit. Our last trip was in 2014 to Athuruga and as we were leaving in the dhoni my wife cried as she had enjoyed it so much. So as a 40th Wedding Anniversary present I booked a return trip.

Only by seaplane! I don’t remember how it cost, ask to the resort! This is the right way to ask and reserve. Bye

No fitness centre but I ran round the island a few times to clock up some miles. There’s also lots of scuba diving etc so you can keep active whilst you’re there.

what plug type is it here please. I cant remember? Thanks
Mainly European but there are one or two UK sockets in each room. Take a 4-way extension lead to increase the number of sockets and/or a couple of European adapters as the UK sockets won’t necessarily be where you want them.
