Paradise to All Mankind

 
When we decide to travel we all have an image of where we are going in our imagination but also a fantasy of how our life will be changed by the journey.

So as I left London’s grey blanket I projected my mind on to turquoise waters and overwater bungalows, an island lover’s haven and possibly as close to an image of paradise as one can imagine and I am amused at Milton’s enigmatic quote

‘Recover’d Paradise to all mankind’ Milton.

Surely paradise doesn’t really exist!

I was off to the Maldives: two words that conjure up images of bone-white beaches, luminous turquoise waters and heavenly indulgence. I had never visited the islands before, but that imprinted image from travel brochures was what I was expecting, but the reality far exceeded even these hyperbolic descriptions! As the plane flew over the shining blue Indian Ocean and I glanced down at the tiny green islands that lay in the water like a crushed emerald necklace, I realized I was happy… and it was a wonderful feeling I hadn’t felt through out the long winter months that proceeded this much deserved break.

With a tranquil private plunge pool and spacious lounge bed hidden away by lush, natural vegetation, these villas are also home to a deck with table and chairs, perfect for intimate evenings spent outdoors. Just steps away from a stretch of its own individual beach and sunbeds, these native Maldivian timber villas have floor-to -ceiling windows, a king size bed and a private outdoor bath and shower area including a terrazzo bathtub.

Sitting above Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa’s stunning house reef with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, the villas are constructed with native timber and stone and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, individual access to the coral- filled waters below and a king size bed. Minimalist style and an earthy, warm palette highlight the understated luxury of the Park Hyatt brand.

Hadahaa Island is one of the most preserved ecosystems with pristine corals
surrounding the resort. They take pride in leaving their beach untouched as provided by nature. This provides a fine grained, deep and perfectly soft beach experience even in the crystal waters.

Surely happiness is a choice? You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.  Well, being in the Maldives banished any other thought other than appreciating the simplicity of happiness!
