Postcards from the Edge…Of the Swimming Pool

Tatiana Korsakova (Russia) – Halaveli

The backdrop de rigeur for the Maldives photoshoots is the water.  Sometimes the beach, sometimes the jetty over the lagoon, and sometimes the increasingly ubiquitous pools for lounging around…

Coffee, Tea or Selfie

A post shared by SUTHATHIP C. (@queen_fff) on

The glamorous life of a flight attendant jetting off to exotic destinations. Working on an airline is a demanding job, but it does have one famous perk – travel. Especially, after a long-haul flight, crews are at their max hours and are required by regulation to have a minimum rest. And no better place to do so in the Maldives (much better than even the nicest lounge in Istanbul).

The traditional favs for the crew crowd seemed to be Hulhule (on the airport island itself) and Hotel Jen, but the favourites in the Instagram crowd appear to be Bandos (5) followed by Centara Ras Fushi (3). Both are distinguished by their proximity to Male (to make the most of a brief stopover), but offer considerably more of the resort vibe.

These flight attendants (although Cheng Lim Lim Crystal #13 below could be a “float attendant”) are not only making the most of their lay-over, but are sharing their break with social media…

World Snorkeling Day

World Snorkeling Day 2018

We take break today from our regularly scheduled Tour programming to celebrate World Snorkeling Day. We feel particularly blessed to be able to celebrate it ourselves with a snorkel of one of the finer North Male housereefs at Malahini Kuda Bandos in one of the greatest destinations to snorkel at in the world.

World Snorkel Day aims to highlight the exotic allure of the accessible underwater world. Scuba diving has a sort of adventurer, James Bond cachet to it, while snorkelling seems to be its homely little cousin. Waddling around with ‘flippers’ and a goofy mask is found more often in slapstick comedy than stylish catwalks. Who better to showcase the sex appeal of this stunning activity than the fashionista brigade of the Maldives….

Slinky Ink

A post shared by ANNA AKSYUK (@annaksyuk) on

National Tattoo Day today. And the swimsuit attire is a great opportunity to show off all of one’s artistic body ink. If I had a tattoo, I might have to incorporate an Maldives island into it, but if you are short of ideas, then this group of fashionistas has a bounty-ful gallery of possibilities…

Pool Sharks

A post shared by Alexander MAVRIN (@mavrin) on

The very first resort attribute I tracked was whether a property had a pool or not. Despite being surrounded by mill pond aquamarine lagoons, the kids still enjoyed the sand-free and salt-free water of a pool. Hence I created a spreadsheet so I could keep track of which resorts had pools. Back in the 90s, less than half of the resorts had a pool. Now it is rare for a resort not to have pool and many of the rooms have their own private pools. And it’s not just the kids who love them. The adult crowd of fashionistas love a good dip in the pool as todays’ National Swimming Pool Day collection shows:

Tour de Maldives

The biggest sporting event in terms of live spectators starts today. No, not the World Cup (which is biggest sporting event in the world in terms of television viewers). The Tour de France. And the near daily “Tour de Maldives” has a comparably large peloton. Though nearly all Maldives resorts don’t have paved surfaces for proper road cycling. But they do have jetties which it turns out is just as popular a Kodak photo spot as any for the Team Fashionista…
