Maldives 2010: Food & The End

There is only one restaurant on the island. However, the food is excellent and there are theme nights where the menu changes for dinner. Breakfast is included and the selection of grub is good. We will definitely return soon.

Maldives 2010: The Real World

我們在 Cocoa Island join 了一個 Island Hopping Tour,雖然很多人也認為去 Maldives 旅行去 local island 是很浪費,但我卻不認同,因為去旅行之餘也希望對這個國家多一點認識,雖然經酒店安排已非完全 local。 GuraidhooIsland是一個 fishing village,此 village 曾經是旅遊點,但 2004年海嘯後,旅客急降,此行我們仍然見到很多做遊客生意的店子,但卻只看到另外兩對 couple 遊客。   由 coral 造成的磚牆,現在已禁止使用。   都是喜愛足球   Tsunami affected area,海嘯當時巨浪有 12 米高,但此區已非最嚴重。 很多地區仍未重建 這些房子是為受影響的災民而建的 垃圾是 Maldives 很嚴重的問題,你是不會在 resort 的海灘見到垃圾,因 resort 有專人負責清埋。還是少一點製造垃圾吧! 住宅或店子外都有用鐵管及繩造成的椅子,不過我試過是很難坐的。 School 小攤擋 用沙造成的磚 Health Centre,嚴重的病人就要去 Male 才可得到醫治。 造船廠,工人正在製造很大的 Dhoni。 全島只有約 1,600...

Maldives 2010: Dolphin

The highlight of our trip was to see the Dolphins during this tour. Even though it was not part of the tour, the crew was very good in tracking down the Dolphins and allowed us plenty of time to take pictures.

Maldives 2010: Fishing Tour

參加了  sunset fishing tour 在船上看 sunset 停船時我暈船浪 如果釣到細魚要即刻放生 最後我們釣了 3 條魚,我們選了 2 條明天食 lunch,yummy!

Maldives 2010: Sunset

雖然看日落應該比看日出容易一點,但平日在香港,那有時間和閒情去看日落。 第二天在 Dhoni Suite 無意中看到日落 6:10pm   6:13pm 6:29pm 那天空的顏色真是美得不知怎去形容,想起了酒店 staff 在 check-in 時會付上日出、日落,水漲、水退的時間表。故此第三天便早一點走去沙灘看日落。 6:12pm 6:15pm 6:16pm 6:16pm 6:31pm 6:31pm 6:34pm 6:34pm 6:35pm 最後一天,行去 reception check-out 時也看到。 6:09pm 6:11pm 6:12pm

Maldives 2010: Sunrise

活了這麼多年,也未看過日出。多謝 Cocoa Island 的 free upgrade,在 One Bed Room Villa 的 terrace 是可很清楚看到日出,如要我 6:00am 多走出去看,我好可能已錯過如此美景。 原來日出是這麼快的,最神奇是看日出的同時,也看到水退,我這個"大市里" 真是不得不說一句,大自然又美麗又神奇。 6:16am 6:20am 6:21am 6:23am 6:24am 6:26am 6:30am 6:30am 6:31am 6:37am 看日出是很感動的,美境後又是新的一天。

Maldives 2010: One Bedroom Villa (Part 2)

The One Bedroom Villa is absolutely fabulous, a lot larger than the Dhoni Suite with amazing views. We were even lucky enough to catch the sunrise on one occasion. The major advantage over the suites is the enormous sundeck area. Also, the bathroom is a lot larger.The only downside to these villas is the location.... Continue Reading →

Maldives 2010: One Bedroom Villa (Part 1)

Our booking was for another 3 nights in a Loft Villa, but got upgraded to One Bedroom Villa. The transfer from our Dhoni Suite to the Villa was hassle free and we moved in to our new quarters after breakfast. Absolutely top notch service. Our Villa CO-1002 View from the sea Sun deck

Maldives 2010: Dhoni Suite

We stayed in a Dhoni Suite for the first 2 nights. The room is of good size with an ok bathroom. We stayed in suite 816 and the location is perfect. We saw many fish from the terrace and it was only a very short distance from the house reef. Dhoni Suite – inspired by... Continue Reading →

Maldives 2010: Full Gear

還有不足 48 小時,便出發去 Maldives,心情非常興奮!此 trip plan 了很久,選擇 resort 又選了好耐。原本我們好想去 Six Senses 的新酒店,因之前住過兩間 Six Sesens 的酒店,感覺都好好,但我 send 了 email、又打電話去問,結果仍然不知那天才可接受 booking,所以決定放棄;再考慮 Cocoa Island,因友人上年去過此 resort,我睇 TripAdvisor 的 review 都好好,所以最終決定 book Cocoa Island。 為了此 trip ,買了很多用品: Snorkeling 及游水用品,雖然酒店會提供 snorkeling equipment,但我們一直都好想有自己的裝備,可以 fit 啲面型又衛生啲,所以我地買了 Mask 及 Snorkel。另外還買了 Beach Shoes、浮床及泳鏡。 還有之前在 Canon on-line shop 訂的 Waterproof Case。這個 Waterproof Case 好貴,又只適合一個相機 model 使用,所以我要 keep...
