{16 Photos That Will Inspire You to Visit the Maldives}

Our time in the Maldives at the Gili Lankanfushi Resort was like waking up to a dream everyday.

Heavenly soft sand unlike any other, lined by beautifully tall palm trees.

With contrasting clear turquoise water against the sand, it certainly made for an extraordinarily dreamy landscape.

Imagine the thrill of sleeping in a two-story over the water villa that sits just steps above a vast coral reservoir.

The easiness of access to the reservoir made for unlimited snorkeling opportunities.

Relaxing under the sun-rays on a lazy afternoon while drinking a piña colada, watching small sharks, fish and sting rays swim by, only further completed the uniquely calm ambience all around.

Getting lost in paths that lead to isolated beaches and riding bikes through picturesque jetties above the water made for a little adventure while in this tropical paradise.

Maldives dreamy beach is a must see.

    I feel like this is a resort that no one ever actually gets to stay at — just take gorgeous photos of!! But you stayed there! So lucky!

      I must admit it was tricky to get there. It involved lots of long flights and a boat ride in the end. I suppose being there felt even more amazing knowing the hard trek it had been just to get there ☺️ Thank you for your wonderful words Catherine, I hope you can visit one day soon my dear 💗
