I had the opportunity to travel to the Maldives and stay at the beautiful Standard Resort. The resort is not just a typical Maldivian couple resort, there are plenty of activities and details that attract the younger crowd. I’m taking you with me on the journey through a photo-diary I shot. – Oumayma

Getting to the resort:

A breathtaking 35-minute sea plane ride away from Velana International Airport,The Standard, Huruvalhi is nestled between the Raa and Baa Atolls, on a naturally protected island. Guests can also take a combined 20-minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo and 35-minute speedboat ride to the resort.

The resort:

The resort has 115 overwater and beach villas, each with its own infinity plunge pool and private lounge deck with direct access to the lagoon, ocean or beach. A glittering disco ball strategically perched above the soaking bathtub in every villa bathroom makes for a signature Standard statement piece and serves as a reminder that you really can party anywhere and at anytime of the day at The Standard. As I already mentioned, there are plenty of activities to do besides throwing your own party. The resort has 3 restaurants and 2 bars and everything is on walking distance. The part I loved the most about the resort is the beautiful sunset view at the BERU bar. Each room as water activity equipments to use.  

The situation currently:

Traveling to the Maldives is currently safe. As long as you fill in an online form and show a negative PCR result you can enter the country. Unfortunately the capital is still on a lock-down, so I highly recommend to go directly to your resort.
