Well, we finally made it. After months of research and hassling members who had visited the Maldives for exact details, we managed to choose THE best destination and hotel for our needs.

I'm really glad we did, and here I am sitting on our lower deck after watching the sunset.
The doors onto the deck of our lagoon villa were floor to ceiling and opened right up. It was lovely to lie on the sala bed reading with the breeze coming in.
This picture shows the view from our bed, and the gorgeous shades of blue beyond.
