Maldives (15-19Dec)

We went for our Maldives trip booked during the recent NATAS fair.

So, we flew off to Maldives Angsana Ihuru (there're now 2 Angsana resorts in Maldives) for 3 days.

Expensive place. Orange juice is US$7 per glass!! But very relaxing place. Got a deluxe villa with jaccuzi (see video).

SG missed out on diving to Manta Point :-( Heard from another Singaporean who did that he saw one huge manta while diving there... Went for 3 dives, including a good house reef dive (wreck & lots lion fishes).

But the snorkelling is good. Must say they have a good house reef.

Interestingly, there's no TV in villa. Fortunately, we came prepared & brought some CDs, including SG's fav William Smith. We spent quite some time reading & praying too.

Food-wise, 'cos it's full-board, all meals are taken care of. We are very impressed with the excellent service. For example, we have the whole speed boat to ourselves when we arrive!

We're assigned the same guy (Hassan) for all the meals. He even know when is our last day!! And every afternoon, they'll make up the room & put petals on the bed!

Overall, a good relaxing trip.
