After our ROHYAL (Rohan + Payal) wedding, my hubby and I set off to our first honeymoon location—the Maldives, a bucket list destination! There are so many islands within the Maldives and most of them are resorts. We decided to stay at Gili Lankanfushi, rated Travelers’ Choice 2015 Winner on TripAdvisor—and after our stay, I can see why! The resort was exactly what we were looking for in our honeymoon experience. We had such an amazing time that we are already planning our return trip. It was the perfect place to start off our lifelong adventure together!

Everything from the scenic views, elements of relaxation, and the food left us awestruck—there is no other place that can possibly encompass every single element of a vacation so perfectly like the Maldives.
Check out the photo diary below to see how we kick-started our honeymoon, and our journey of happily ever after, in the Maldives!
