    • Hi Nick,

      Thanks for the note and it’s been changed! Got to love Google images sometimes!


  • The Maldives is the most beautiful and quiet place for traveling. The beaches, blue lagoons, and extensive reefs are just eye-catching. These islands are very impressive and the best place for newlyweds. The resort you have mentioned looks so cool and so impressive. I hope it opens soon. The overall ambiance of this hotel looks great. The Maldives will be my Honeymoon spot for sure. I will definitely visit this hotel when I will visit The Maldives. Thank you for sharing this great post. Keep Posting.
