A luxury Maldives experience with PER AQUUM

Sue Brooks | 12 Jan, 2016

"This is the stuff dreams are made of!"

That was my first thought as I embarked on my visit to the ultra-luxe, Per AQUUM private island resorts in the incredible Maldives. Travelling to the islands over glistening atolls by seaplane, the turquoise sea and white sand were so striking, it's hard to believe they're real. But there it was; natural beauty you thought you'd only ever see in pictures - it actually exists our there; no filters, no Photoshop!

PER AQUUM Niyama

After taking in the views on this fantastic seaplane transfer, I arrived at my first island destination; PER AQUUM Niyama where I continued to be 'wowed'! I stayed in a Beach Suite with Pool, which was out of this world. The inside and outside felt fluid with huge sliding doors meaning you could lie in bed and look at the Indian Ocean views! Then it was just a few steps past the private 'family sized' plunge and your feet are in the sand instantly. What a setting!

A culinary highlight during my stay was dinner at TRIBAL, a signature concept restaurant set under a magnificent, high tented ceiling and adorned with dark woods. Food here is a creative fusion of African, Central and South American tribal cuisine, so the flavours were mouth-watering. Being in the midst of the Indian Ocean, there is an excellent array of fresh fish that can be seasoned in various styles and cooked to order. Delicious!

PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi

As if I hadn't already experienced enough Maldives luxury, it was then off to PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi; a resort that is renowned in the industry as a trend-setter, always striving to deliver the utmost luxury with a contemporary edge. My Lagoon Bungalow with Pool certainly fit that description!

All accommodation on PER AQUUM Huvafen Fushi boasts a private pool (varying in size depending on room type). Mine hovered above the resort's crystal clear lagoon, which I could also see from the gorgeous, stand alone bathtub in my en suite bathroom. Bliss!

Another pioneering concept restaurant, RAW, made a fantastic, over-water setting for lunch. All dishes here are made with (you guessed it) raw, organic ingredients. It's safe to say that healthy food rarely tastes this good!

The true home of romance

As a solo traveller, this was the ideal place to relax and unwind, but if you're seeking romance I couldn't think of a betting place than the Maldives. Either PER AQUUM Resort would be perfect for a luxury honeymoon, and I can't imagine anyone saying no to a proposal on the beach here!

Outstanding service

What stood out for me at both resorts was the service; as a Travel Specialist I've been lucky enough to visit luxury hotels across the world, and I can honestly say that the discreet, intuitive service at PER AQUUM resorts is second to none.

Niyama2

When I arrived at Niyama, my suite had a sign outside the door saying 'Sue's Suite' and a there was a little sign placed on my complimentary resort bicycle that said 'Susan'. My dedicated butler (who was always on hand, but never obtrusive) must have heard people calling me Sue, because the next say the sign on my bike had changed to 'Sue'. Talk about attention to detail!

Pure Paradise

I could probably go on about my time at these two luxury Maldives resorts for hours, but I think you've probably got the impression by now: I loved it!
