Product Director, Melissa, recently inspected several exciting island resorts in The Maldives. As part of her visit, she flew for the first time in a seaplane. More spectacular than a speedboat, flying low enough to give fantastic views over the white sandy islands in the turquoise ocean, she provides her account of the experience.
Having arrived in the Maldives after a very long flight I was unenthused by the prospect of another flight to be transferred to my resort. I could not have been more wrong, however, as it turned out to be the most exciting and scenic taxis rides of my life! The seaplanes in the Maldives are not just a mode of transport, but are an experience in themselves.
