Walking around the island barefoot was truly idyllic, the wide beaches with its warm breeze blew us away. If you have been to The Maldives more than a couple of times and experiencing different resorts of Maldives just like us, you will definitely agree with big YES!
Recently we stayed at Constance Moofushi and Constance Halaveli. Let’s set apart the story for the latter and focus first on the highlight we experienced at Constance Moofushi. We are sharing some of our snaps for you, enjoy!
We have been greeted by their representative with such warm. Two of them came to meet and assisted us with the seaplane transfer; escorted us to their exclusive Constance Bus and one of them travelled with us from the Seaplane counter all the way to their exclusive, cozy and comfortable seaplane lounge.
The wait for our boarding time was not even close to 20 minutes, which is perfect, no matter how lovely the lounge is, don’t we all want to take off soonest and set our foot on the beach. We had enough time to enjoy the facilities they have to offer: foot massage chair, chilled welcome drinks, coffee, light snacks, and they even have few desktops in case you wish to quickly check on some work or print something.
The Seaplane Trip
When we say we have visited quite a couple of resorts, seaplane is not an exception, but even in multiple times that we have done this for almost the same route, the scenic experience it offers always kept us awed every time. Between Male airport to Constance Moofushi, it will take roughly 30 minutes, yet we made a quick stop at one resort before heading out to Constance Moofushi which was a good chance to have an overview of the other island nearby. It only took 5 minutes and then another 10 minutes and finally we arrived!
We arrived with such perfect weather, the crystal lagoon glistens as the seaplane landed smoothly and directly stopped near the arrival platform connected with a small jetty to the arrival pavilion.
We were welcomed by our hosts and guided to the reception where we met with the friendly team. Now this is where we felt a very relaxed ambience, it didn’t feel forced or rehearsed, everything just went with the flow. GM met us and graciously welcomed us too while the other team member handed a small pouch so we can bag our shoes to enjoy barefoot luxury! We also loved their welcome drink, so refreshing.
We stayed on a Water Villa that is close to the main restaurant, the water just always amazes us, even though we are literally walking about it by the jetty, living right on it (almost in it) and seeing it all day long! The house reef access is also beautiful, from the water villa itself, you can comfortably walk down the wooden stairs and get down to the waters. The villa is very comfortable with its bed facing straight to the ocean, and not to mention we were seeing the sunset (a real plus). And the best thing on this water villa stay is we never heard big traffic of buggies running up and down the jetty. The resort does not used buggy on their jetties except for service. It is worth noting that they do not provide In Villa Dining or Room Service, so you won’t be hearing those delivery buggies as well.
They do have a different type of villa categories; Beach Villa and Senior Water Villas. The Beach Villas are cozy and comfortable as well with direct access to the white sandy beach. While the Senior Water Villas are the highest room category with bigger balcony size, additional high glass window, your own coffee maker, and gorgeous bathtub located in the open area of the bathroom. We promise, if you like star gazing, this is one best Maldives experience, soak in to your private bathtub and let the twinkling stars and fill your galactic desires.
Dining and Bar
There are two restaurants available for you to choose from and we dig the breakfast buffet at Manta Restaurant. Under the sky and open air dinner at Alizee Restaurant. The food was excellent, mouth watering!
While you also got two bars to enjoy. For all day chilling, the best place is Totem Bar where you got access to the pool, lagoon, and enjoy just get your light lunches. Caesar salad is spot on - fresh and delicious!
Manta Bar was just as fun in the evening where many of other guests gather together to really party, and we mean party with live DJ, drinks, mingling and dancing.
The resort offers a beautiful shack where you can also relax and just get lost of time. You have access to the small hut with sun loungers, the ocean is your playground along with one of the widest best surrounding you. All non-motorized water sports available is for you to take for free, only if you need lessons then you need to get their assistance at an extra fee, otherwise, go for it as much as you like. If you feel tired, thirsty and the bar seems too far or your villa, don’t worry, the shack has got a free flow and self service corner where you can grab your chilled and cool drinks and even some cookies.
The spa is just as fabulous too! Get those worn out muscles to relax. They got you covered.
Staying fit is a thing but not really for us though :) Should you wish to keep on track with your fitness program, worry not, Constance Moofushi also got your back. They are equipped with a state of the art gym with fitness cardio equipment, free weights & strength machines. Also a Yoga pavilion.
The hardest part of the trip! We took a short 30 minutes trip from Constance Moofushi to Constance Halaveli. The send off was just a warm as the arrival too.
