Exploring Maldives with Oumayma Elboumeshouli
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 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.
