Our honeymoon at Vakkaru Maldives was truly a dream! Every aspect of our stay was perfect. Our butler Iku was so incredibly nice and professional. We were greeted by his contagious smile and knew we were in great hands. We started our days with the breakfast buffet. The food selections were great — from healthy parfaits to dimsum. My favorite was the fruit section as well as the juice bar. Big shoutout to the sweet man behind the juice bar every morning! He had memorized my order and was so excited to see me every morning. Now, onto food! Everything was very fresh and delicious. Our favorite was the Asian restaurant, Onu. The flavors were truly phenomenal! Highly recommend the Laksa soup.. we were addicted to this dish! Not only was the chef at Onu unbelievably talented and really knows what he’s doing, he was such a pleasant, sweet person, who cared about your experience. We also enjoyed the beautiful sunset dinner we had at Vakku — the octopus was outstanding! One of our favorite parts to the trip was making cocktails with mixologists, Khairul and Sega. They were so much fun and made the best drinks. They taught us their techniques and special recipes. We were blown away by the sophisticated flavors! If you plan to stay at Vakkaru, make sure to find these guys and have Sega’s award winning drink! Thank you to the Vakkaru team for making our honeymoon so special!
