It’s common for this article to be a visual one. What differentiates each hotel to the other? Price, location, activities, child friendly (or not) and food. Of-course, picking the room category in Maldives is probably your toughest choice. You always opt for a water villa just because well, you ARE in Maldives. But that doesn’t mean the beach front aren’t as good. It just means its a whole new experience. Both equally new. We took a very short trip to have a look at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon in Furanafushi Island, North Malé Atoll. A little piece of heaven with excellent services and a heart warming welcome.

Here is a peek of Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa

Rooms

One morning, we took a tour around the hotel and around the 6 categories of room with 156 rooms in total. A wide choice of cottages, water villas, water bungalows, club water bungalows and ocean pool villas. Each room offering a different new experience. We stayed at the water bungalows that has direct access to the water below you. Starting price at $444 a night!

Traveling with little children or a family with kids, it’s always advisable to book the front beach villa which is facing the beach.

Location & Transportation

An easy 15 minutes ride by speed boat from Male airport, (6km from airport). We were greeted at the Sheraton Desk representative. It all felt so familiar but always different when you experience it with another hotel. Our bags were uploaded onto the boat and we took off.

Hotel Features

The Sheraton Maldives Full Moon resort is a fabulous choice for those who don’t want to travel too far away from Male. Reason being perhaps of fear of flying in small propeller planes. We were immediately escorted to our rooms and were upgraded to a water bungalow. It was fabulous and a great way to start exploring the hotel!

We spent our mornings by the pool but ended up snorkeling every day after breakfast, with or without rain. It didn’t make a difference to us. Maldives is beautiful this way. The hotel is enclosed with wonderful corals that made it possible to go snorkeling anytime right under our room.

The resort also offers various cuisines through their varied restaurants from fine dining to quick bites at the beach, not to forget their anchorage bar and the beautiful sunset that you can watch from there.

We took a buggy and had a tour of the hotel and even crossed the other island to visit the spa.

Water sports activities, excursions that include dolphin watching, island escape, sport fishing and a visit to Male. Make sure you plan and book ahead. The kids club ( Younger guests—ages 4 to 12 with babysitting available at a fee) and if you are a Sheraton Club member you get access to the club lounge with stunning infinity pool and SPG platinum’s are well taken of here! The Sheraton fitness center is open 24 hours, a fresh water swimming pool.

Internet is available at $23 a day in the rooms and free of charge in the lobby area.

Shine Spa for Sheraton

From 9am to 10pm, the spa is perfect to spend an hour or 3! There are plenty of choices from body treatments to facials, massages and couples packages. We spent one morning there and had to try their treatments! That’s the beauty of being in Maldives, you could opt for the perfect spa treatments whilst it rains for 90 minutes a day! So, to top it all, u can never leave the Maldives without  an indulging spa, where you get to enjoy the sauna and their relaxation pool followed by a 45 minutes  stress relief massage focusing on the back and neck after which you are left to further relax on the sound of the ocean with a heartwarming tea!

  • Soooo... Weekends in Dubai has resulted at the beach since summer has kicked in!! Here is one of my favorite barefoot lunch spots ❤️ Have you been here?
  • Maldives, you are my favorite distraction 🐠
  • I found a little Tuscany in Dubai!! On small roads in the countryside in Val d’Orcia, sunflowers bloom in summer and it gives you a sense of happiness. On my hunt for inspiration of Italy in the UAE, I found a little bit of Tuscany and happiness in Dubai🌻

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
