Sakshi and Sasmit, Maldives
A heart of fire on the beach, dolphin spotting, underwater explorations, and romantic dinners - Sasmit and Sakshi's honeymoon in the Maldives was an idyllic sojourn marked with lots of relaxation, romance, and adventure.
After their hectic wedding in Jaipur, Sakshi and Sasmit were in the mood for a leisurely honeymoon where they could unwind. Sakshi tells us how they got exactly what they wished for in the Maldives.
How we met
“Sasmit and I first met in Mumbai where I worked as a UI/Visual designer. He was on his annual family visit to India from the US when we bumped into each other at a friend’s party. We chatted for two minutes and then got back to our friends. After a couple of months, we connected online. We felt a spark between us when our initial messages turned into full-fledged conversations and calls with no track of time. Our friendship blossomed into love, and here we are together – against the odds – after more than a year. I can look back and say that it took two minutes of conversation to kickstart a chain of events that culminated in us being together.”
“The Maldives was our first choice for our honeymoon. Since it was winter in the US, we wanted to go to a warm, tropical island with relaxing and serene surroundings – more so after having a long and loud Marwari wedding. The Meeru Island Resort & Spa proved to be the perfect place for us.”
“Words cannot express what a beautiful place the Meeru Island Resort & Spa is. Its beautiful beaches fronting the clear blue sea, lovely pools, food, cocktails and evening entertainment were all fantastic. The breathtaking views of the ocean at sunrise were a sight to behold every morning. We could take our pick from a host of activities such as tennis, golf, kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing, and scuba diving expeditions. A few free extras included in our honeymoon package were a sunset cruise where we saw dolphins, a guided snorkeling trip on a nearby reef, a scuba diving pre-course, a 15-minute free massage and photo sessions where you could choose one photo to take home.”
Most Romantic Moment
“On the second day of our honeymoon, Sasmit arranged for a mini-cruise to Kagi which is a remote island near the resort. Over there, he professed his love to me all over again by having a heart of fire drawn on the beach underneath the moonlight. The perfect planning and execution of this lovely surprise made the occasion even more special. This was followed by a candlelight dinner under the stars. That evening was everything that dreams are made of.”
“Snorkelling is a must-try activity in the Maldives as you can get up close and personal with giant manta rays underwater. Kagi Island is also beautiful and must be included in your itinerary if possible Unwinding and simply relaxing in the beautiful resort is an experience you do not want to miss out on.”
Advice to Couples
“Make sure to opt for an all-inclusive honeymoon package to make the most of the unlimited food and drinks. To get the best out of your visit, book a Jacuzzi Water Villa.”
