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!

  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
