Spending the night deserted on a private Maldivian island at Maafushivaru!
Want your very own Robinson Crusoe moment? Then look NO further as Maafushivaru offer just that on Lonubo; their very own private island! With three different packages to book, you can enjoy some alone time on Lonubo for dinner or the whole night. We were SO incredibly lucky to spend the night on Lonubo, and I can hand on heart say it was the best night of my life. We were taken across to the island at 4.30pm and left for a few hours (which basically entailed us running around the island like absolute loonies; we couldn't believe we had the place to ourself! We poured some champagne and took the drone for a spin.. it was BLISS!).
Our very own waiter and chef then came across to the island at 6.30pm to cook us a private candle lit BBQ, and I can honestly say it was the most romantic night of my life *SWOON*, from start to finish, it really was the most wonderful, luxurious and private getaway and I'd do it all again in a heartbeat if I could! Oh, and did I mention that there's only ONE villa on the whole island.. complete with a jacuzzi and champagne (HELLO honeymooners!).

Whilst I know the packages at Lonubo are *fairly pricey, I truly believe that we'll never have an experience quite that wonderful again! I would DEFINITELY book it if you're visiting Maafushivaru on a honeymoon, because let's face it - what's more romantic than a WHOLE island to yourself?!
P I N M E :
Would you love this Castaway experience? Is this something you could see yourself booking for a honeymoon or special occasion? It was MAGICAL!
*A HUGE thank you to the wonderful staff at Maafushivaru for organising our stay at Lonubo - we had the BEST time!
