Just before Christmas we enjoyed our honeymoon in the Maldives. My husband spent hours and hours researching resorts, deals, reviews and ended up taking me on my dream vacation in paradise. The first 5 days we spent at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru. A perfect place to stay for relaxation, calm and peace. The food was exquisite, the atmosphere wonderful, the staff so charming and sweet and we enjoyed every minute of it, even though the minuets passed by way too fast. We highly recommend this place.
I just got a drone and with my amateur skills and knowing that it was not allowed to fly drones there I still had to take it for a ride and got a few sweet shots.
Our bungalow with a little pier and a gazebo perfect to watch sunsets.
With yoga classes on the sunset pier to the left during the sunset and sunrise i even got my excersice done.
Waiting for the sunset.
Even though the sunset is beautiful, I often find what happens on the opposite side just as pretty.
Like this rainbow in a pink cloud.
And I love the colors after a sunset.
In our “backyard” with a pool and a jacuzzi. Perfect to “wine-down” with some champs after a day in the sun.
The scenery is just prefect in my eyes. Sand, water, palm trees and Stephen. (Even in black&white its all pretty)
Maintanace work on the pier.

Every afternoon they feed the stingrays who come at that specific time to eat year after year. They are huge and have a very venomous tail so a fish to avoid close contact with but left in peach they are harmless. Also the black fin sharks are everywhere- just something to get used to while swimming in the maldives 😉
Very local weather. While I’m sunbathing I’m watching the island close by in a rain shower.
Perfect color scale.
Perfect for paddle boarding.
Enjoyed a really good couples massage.
An amazing sunset.
The days flew by, we didn’t even have the time to read a book.
Bats also enjoy this environment.
Alot of the island a very self sufficient with their own gardens with fruits, herbs, berries and their own water supply from watertowers.
Always a place to chill.
We had a good variations of different sunsets. All very pretty.
Best burger Stephen ever had.
Just a little shark. “Not dangerous”.
Champs in the jacuzzi every evening is a habbit I could get used to.
