Mitch and I booked our trip to the Maldives way back in September. At the time, we decided to book a beachside bungalow, rather than one of those cool bungalows built on stilts over the water. We knew it would be super cool to stay in one of them, however they were so dang expensive.
Upon our arrival to the resort, we were surprised with a FREE upgrade to one of the over-the-water bungalows! The hotel gods were definitely smiling down at us. We were ecstatic as we walked down the long dock to our little bunglow, and couldn’t believe how nice it was! Check out this video tour of our bungalow!
The room was fabulous. We were able to swim right off of our deck, and I did, immediately after checking into the room. I ran down the steps and hopped in the water. After a quick little swim I climbed the steps back up to the deck. I was staring happily at the crystal clear water below, looking at the huge tropical fish swim along, when suddenly a giant Manta Ray swam by! It was bigger than our dining room table and was enough to make me a bit weary about swimming in the water again. It was like 6 feet long! After watching for another minute or so, 5 sharks swam by! At that point my mind had been made up, I was going to do my swimming in the pool.
