How far away can you get from everyday life? Is your soul craving seclusion and harmony? South Huvadhoo atoll , a short boat trip north of the equator, could very well be just what the doctor ordered, and Outrigger Konotta resort the sweet spot to stay on.
Outrigger Konottaa is a small luxury resort in the far south of the Maldives. To get here you will need to get on a domsetic flight for about 55 minutes and then a short boat trip to the resort. This may seem like a bit of a bother after a long flight from home to Male, but in reality it does not make such a big difference from getting on a sea plane. As long as you can time the scheduled domestic flight with the international one it should be a breeze. I have been far north as well as far south and the experience has not in any way deterred me from going again. One distinct plus is that the domestic flight can fly anytime while the seaplane needs daylight. No, domestic transfer is certainly no reason to discard any resort from the list. Rather the opposite since you can get better rate offers, more bang for your buck, at remote resorts.
The remote feeling this far away from Male and away from areas where there are more resorts is amazing. On a clear, starry night you feel completely alone in your own paradise when the dark blue Maldivian night comes down like a velvet blanket. We will visit this stunning island in late February 2018. I have had so many glorioous things told to me about the resort, the oustanding kindness of the staff and the beauty of the island as well as delicious cuisine that I just have to go! BIG thank you (again) to Clare at Angelfish Travel who assisted me in booking.

Just have a look at this aerial video of the island. Isn't it just perfect? Can't wait to snorkle on that house reef!! There are only 53 villas, 29 on the beach, and even the entry level villa is over 200 sqm! All villas have a private pool. Not exactly roughing it on Konottaa, are you? Well, I will post another blog about our experince IRL in March 2018 of course. In the meantime, maybe you will go see for yourself?
This island is really spectacular. What a beauty!! Could not help posting another breathtaking video....
