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!

  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’. You just know that any adventure with them is what you crave for and, that no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better and it’s no longer forcing things. One year ago today since I left, I’m missing my heart in Kenya. 🇰🇪
  • I still can’t get over that crazy sunrise color! A guide to tropical Salalah, Oman with @flydubai 🇴🇲 at @anantarasalalah (Link in bio) Happy Sunday!
  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻

  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • The beautiful infinity pool at sunrise in Oman at @anantarasalalah
  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
