Staying in a Water Bungalow is a once in a life time room upgrade that you can only really warrant spending the money on for a special occasion like a Honeymoon. (I’m talking $300 extra PER NIGHT and that’s for a cheap one). For our Honeymoon we went to a 3 star resort in the Maldives, I’m used to motels, hostels and camping and I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable and out of place in a 5 star resort…plus our budget wouldn’t stretch quite THAT far! Our water bungalow was slightly outdated and basic but it’s ruined my future travels forever…I’ll never be satisfied with a normal hotel room again! Here’s why.
This is on your front door step…
How’s this for your BACK door step?
You wake up to views like this from your bed…
(I kept a window blind open every night so I didn’t miss out!) We even had breakfast delivered to our room one morning.
Toilet with a view? How about a glass shower? (Don’t worry, the glass was one way!)
There’s never a fight for a sun lounger, the ones on your deck are all yours!
You don’t have to worry about making up a beach bag…your whole room is at your disposal…including the bathroom (no debates about peeing in the sea!)
Even better, there’s no chance of sand destroying your gadgets or getting stuck to wet swimming costumes or snorkel gear!
Fancy a swim? No problem…I give you, a private ladder from your private deck straight into the sea
You don’t miss out in the evenings either, a couple of nights we saw a shark swim right in front of our bungalow, with help from the deck spotlight!
Last but not least, you get to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean ❤
A stay in a Maldives water bungalow doesn’t even have to be expensive! I stayed at the Adaaran Club Rannalhi Resort which was perfect for a budget stay in the Maldives!
