HOT Bucket List: Overwater Bungalow in the Maldives

The Maldives live up to every expectation, i.e. the exotic holiday of a lifetime. With angel-white sand and irresistibly blue sea, you can live out the ultimate dream in an over-water bungalow, discover an underwater odyssey of tropical sea life, or simply escape – in both mind and body – to a deserted sliver of beach. 

4 reasons to put this experience on your Bucket List:
HOT Bucket icon Your room, suite, villa, residence or whatever it happens to be called will be beautifully furnished and you'll be wishing it was your permanent address.  Book a room with a private pool or completely indulge with an overwater abode.  Direct access to the water below and the horizon as your outlook is what the Maldives is all about.  
HOT Bucket icon Have an island all to yourself.  Apart from the fact that the Maldives is generally a one resort per island type of place, there are countless islands that are uninhabited.  Arrange a private island excursion to one of these dots of sand and be left alone with just your picnic and your travelling companions. BLISS!
HOT Bucket icon Arrange meal plans or book yourself at an all-inclusive resort.  Then there are no concerns of being hungry or dehydrating in the hot weather.  The level of what is included varies, but meals and drinks are taken care of before you leave home. The plan may also include a daily replenished mini bar, spa treatments, excursions or child minding.
HOT Bucket icon Covering an area that is similar to Portugal, but with land about the size of Singapore, it means that water makes up 99% of the country.  Water activities are endless!  Try your hand at snorkelling, banana boat rides, surfing, sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding, parasailing to name a few.  And with a water temp of around 27 degrees, there's no getting out because you are too cold!  

Here are our dream experiences 

An evening cinema –Relax on a beanbag, feet in the sand and enjoy a movie under the stars.
Spa treatments – The hardest part is choosing from the amazing  treatments on offer.  The easy part is being pampered.
Destination dining - A candle lit dinner on the end of a jetty, under a gazebo at the beach or even the most private of venues - your villa.
Arrive by seaplane - If your resort offers it, arrival by seaplane is a fantastic way to see some of the 1192 islands that make up the Maldives.  The white sand is easy to spot in the azure blue ocean.
