Lonubo, the tiny island next to Maafushivaru captivates many in its net of wonder; and for a lot of reasons; the powdery white beaches encircling the island and the astounding reef housing a palette of colourful, underwater animals. Two guest villas are sited in the centre of Lonubo, should the need arise to elope with your betrothed.
Maafushivaru offers three attractive getaway packages to suit this specific need to escape from reality, on Lonubo, letting you have the whole island to yourself! Elect from the choices available; which delivers three unique experiences combined with the exclusivity of Lonubo.
‘The Romance Picnic package’, is a beautifully prepared picnic for a couple. You take a hamper full of delicious goodies with you when you arrive to Lonubo complete with an array of soft drinks and water. ‘The Island BBQ’ package, is your modern day BBQ where a chef concocts grilled delicacies on the beach, whilst you spend time together sipping a fancy glass of wine, admiring the vista of sunset and stars! ‘Desert Island Dream package’, provides a fully catered 4 course meal complete with a chef and a waiter. Sit and enjoy the true Maldivian experience of a private dinner on the beach with sand between your toes.
After the bliss of heavenly food, you are left all by yourself to discover the island’s intimacy with your partner under a canopy of stars. The fleeting sensation of being the only ones on this tiny gem will soon overwhelm you. You are also entitled to a villa, beautifully designed with a hint of Maldivian architecture, furnished with contemporary creature comforts and an outdoor bathroom. Spend your night slumbering in serenity, and rise to the tropical sun, for you’ll be served breakfast complemented with sparkling wine – what an awesome start to the day!
Tempting yet true, the so called ‘Robinson Crusoe’ experience materialises as you feel like a star on this magical island in total exclusivity.
