Continuing with my Maldives trip, I had an amazing time with my boyfriend at the Hurawalhi Resort on a beautiful private coral island. Let me tell you more about the most unforgettable places here.. the place where I exclaimed YES to being Mrs Leung!
5.8 Undersea Restaurant
As implied in its name, 5.8 represents the depth of the restaurant. It is hard to describe the first instance of stepping into the world’s largest all-glass undersea restaurant – I feel like I am actually able to breathe under water! A 7-course dinner is priced at about USD 280 per person. For the unparalleled view, I feel that it is worth every penny.
Apart from watching the golden sunset here, we are told by the staff that every morning at 6am and evening at 6pm, a group of dolphins will swim by! This is definitely a romantic place to spend some quality time with your loved one with the unbeatable view. We had a wonderful time here.
With a short speed boat trip from the resort, we arrive at the lovely Dream Island. You might think that, what? An isolated island? Is it going to be like the film Cast Away there? Don’t worry! The resort staff will accompany guests to the island and take care of your needs, before leaving you alone for some privacy. We enjoy the calmness and breeze on the island. In this perfect moment, suddenly, my boyfriend gets down on one knee, looks me in the eyes and asks, “Will you marry me?”. I freeze for a second, and ask myself in my heart, “Is this real?”. He completely takes me by surprise! Of course, I exclaim a big YES. It is a perfect proposal that I have been dreaming of.
What we miss out ?
We couldn’t see any manta rays during this trip, watching manta rays is definitely on top of our list next time!
