Nestled on it’s own private island in North Male Atoll, lies Summer Island Resort Maldives. A resort that really does make it feel like summer year round. With it’s ideally placed tree swings, glorious infinity pool overlooking the ocean, perfect over water bungalows and picturesque ocean hammock, it was the best way to end our time in the Maldives.
We were picked up at the airport with a group of other visitors and welcomed onto the private island by boat with a little tropical thunderstorm and delicious green drinks. The helpful staff walked us to our amazing over water bungalow which we were super grateful to get to call home for the next few days. Our over water bungalow had a glass bottom floor where we watched needle nose fish and sting rays float by, a balcony where we spent our sunrises and sunsets gazing over the horizon and a staircase where we giddily ran down to go bask in the bright teal Indian ocean. It seemed that you could continue to walk forever until the bright turquoise sea turned into the deep blue sea. While we would gasp every time we saw a large sting ray, shark and school of fish, it seemed like a normal occurrence in these waters!
While the island is a smaller island, it had everything we could ever want or need for an incredible experience in the Maldives. Summer island Resort boasts 2 restaurants, 1 buffet style and 1 a la carte style, 2 bars, an abundance of tree swings, an ocean hammock, a large infinity pool, spa, and an excursion / activities center. We tried out a glass bottom boat and took it around the island as a fun alternative to snorkeling and it was an awesome experience where we saw a lot of coral and marine life! We also received 10 minute massages at the spa which were a welcome gift during our very active days. But one of our all time favorite parts of our stay at Summer Island Resort was the food. We mainly dined at the a la carte restaurant as we really enjoyed the chef’s daily changing creations! She always came out to greet us and asked us how our food was. And it was always delicious! Plus the dessert bar was also a pleasant bonus with out daily ice cream bar and sweet indulgences.
Summer Island spoiled us and made us never want to leave the incredible Maldivian Islands. I could get used to spending my days jumping in and exploring the ocean waters, sipping tropical drinks, eating incredible food 3 times a day and getting to the know the wonderful and kind local people. A 5 star experience in my book and I’m already planning on coming back to the Maldives the MINUTE I can! If you get the chance to visit the Maldives, you must make Summer Island Resort a stop! It’s not only affordable but an incredible private island resort experience that I would recommend to anyone everyone!
Sad to leave this beautiful paradise but excited to explore more of this big, beautiful world! India we’re coming for you!
