Maldives Magic

When we received the invite to explore Maldives via Think Strawberries, the first and last thought was a ‘Yes’. The assurance came from knowing that Think Strawberries has been into responsible travel and tourism and this would be no exception. And they delivered! Right from COVID testing before flying to visa on arrival, everything went off smoothly and we found ourselves in the paradise called Maldives - a place perfect for responsible vacation and everything organic in 4.5 hours, thanks to Go Air which offers direct flights from Delhi to Male. You will be pleasantly surprised to know that Maldives has been witnessing 1 lakh visitors every month, which is no mean feat considering the times we are in. Here’s letting you in through our memorable five-day trip of Maldives.

KAGI MALDIVES SPA ISLAND

The moment you set eyes on the island, there is no way you won’t fall in love with it at first sight. Kagi opened its doors to tourists in December 2020. It’s a 55 minutes picturesque boat transfer from the Velana International Airport. As the soul of the place says, it’s all about pure life experiences and we began our 5-day trip with this view and feel, which is beyond words. Whether you are feeling energetic or prefer to relax, this place is for the well-being of your mind, body and soul. It is in Kagi where you can embrace each moment through the pure beauty of nature which appears after shedding ostentation, gimmicks and opening oneself to feel and remember. Here, they offer different programs, especially for couples who wish to rejuvenate and bring back the magic in life. From Wellness Retreat, to Couple Retreat and to Yoga Retreat among others, they offer everything possible that will pleasantly surprise your senses in every way possible. And if you are someone who can’t live without exotic bars, they have innovative Pool and Piano Bar that is worthy of an experience

Man On The Rise Ajinkya Rahane

Oprah Winfrey once said, “Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” When you look at Indian cricketer Ajinkya Rahane, he reflects the same power when he focuses on the ground and it’s his passion that has made him come a long way in the gentleman’s game. Ajinkya’s success story is incomplete without his family and he affirms, “Life is pretty empty without the presence of an immediate family. Regardless of any success on the field, the truest moment of satisfaction always comes after spending time with family.” Today he feels content with everything he has achieved and believes that it is all about mental toughness, the ability to deal with unknown adversities, and perseverance that helps one make a mark in the highest level of the sport.
