Trouble in paradise: Maldives

For those who are planning to visit Maldives soon please consider the following events before you go.

For weeks Maldives soldiers clashed with police on the streets forcing the first democratic president to resign.

Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed announced his resignation in Male, Maldives, Feb. 7 following weeks of public protests over his controversial order to arrest a senior judge.

Maldives officials say no trouble for tourists, & Kuwait Foreign Affairs haven’t issued any concerns for Kuwaiti citizens visiting Maldives yet, however I still feel that a certain period of time should pass until things get settled in the area to avoid getting into any trouble or danger.


Six Senses Yao Noi-Phuket

One of my husband’s friend recently went to Six Senses hotel in Phuket. The hotel was highly recommended by him because of its specatcular service, interior and location. Basically, everything about the hotel was amazing.

The hotel is located on island of Yai Noi, where you can be transported by helicopter, car or boat. Six Senses is just whats needed for couples who are looking for seclusion yet have fun in the same time (don’t worry it won’t be boring because of the activities offered by the hotel!).

The guy that gave them special tour of Phi Phi island etc he was so much helpful!

Some of their activities include:
-Helicopter tour
-Fishing, Water skiing and Rock Climbing
-Batik Painting, Thai kick boxing (beginning)
-Thai cooking class and Chef’s Table
-Cinema in hotel
-Ipod music and movies in library
-Private in-villa or terrace dining accompanied with a private butler and chef, and much more……………….

Review: The Andaman Hotel, Langkawi Island

Last week I posted my review about Langkawi Island, in this post I’ll talk about the luxury beach resort I stayed in; The Andaman. The Hotel is located in the heart of the rainforest & in front of a private beach, which makes it quite unique.

The hotel lobby, foyer and the pathway to the rooms are all in an outdoor setting, which serves the true tropical getaway feeling.

The rooms were quite comfortable & spacious. My only issue was the interior and décor of the rooms. I don’t like rooms with the beige color palettes with dark wooden floors and vaulted wooden ceilings, I feel it’s too much. The view on the other hand was whimsical!

Other than that, the staff was very nice& helpful, the pool is huge & full of trees & plants, it’s like you are swimming in a lake. The beach is considered to be the most clear & clean beach among other hotels in Langkawi Island. The restaurant’s seating near the pool & beach was so good & relaxing.



Review: Langkawi Island, Malaysia

One month ago I went to Langkawi Island in Malaysia; the Island is very similar to Phuket’s scenery & atmosphere. However Phuket has more activities for tourists. (Click here to see our post on Phuket)

Activities to do in Langkawi were:

  • Visiting the Telaga Tujuh waterfalls- dries out on certain seasons.
  • Island hopping & Eagle feeding
  • Elephant & Horse riding
  • Motorcycling around the Cambrians Geoforest Park.
  • Enjoy the Islands scenery in Langkawi’s cable car
  • Walk around on the Curve Hanging Bridge
  • Of course, Tanning & at the beautiful clear sandy beaches.

To be honest, it was very pretty & relaxing but it’s only worth it if you are actually around Malaysia. If you are looking for a similar Island getaway, phuket is much more fun & prettier than Langkawi. That’s just my humble opinion.
