We visited the island of Holhudhoo , which is in Noonu atoll , via sea plane to Irufushi beach and spa and then took a less than 10 minute speedboat ride to Holhudhoo.
Hubby's friend and two of his family members went along with us. The boys and I spent the Friday and Saturday morning on the beach playing on the sand and the boys climbed a few sand dunes and walked across fallen palm trees and logs.One thing that really struck me the most was the people. (most of us are quite the reserved lot) The people are so nice!!!. I mean I always had someone coming over to chat, while I was walking or sitting on the beach . Just little hellos and a smile or asking which island I was from and what I was doing there. Even the kids were friendly, they would smile shyly at the boys.
Its was on Saturday we learnt that hubby's friend had decided to fix a stay for us at Irufushi beach resort and spa ( all expenses paid) for the night and to leave on Sunday( unfortunately had to return on Sunday morning much to the dismay of my elder son who was hoping we got to leave Sunday afternoon). So instead of heading straight home on Saturday afternoon, we settled down to enjoy the beautiful resort. (Mind you I am not getting any commision or anything , as I told in an even on an earlier post, these are all travel stories and experiences.)
We were given a pool beach villa a treat for the boys as it had its own little pool for them to enjoy, and of course from the living quarters the doors opened to this!!! Do I need to use words to describe the view?

The resort also has lots of sea sports activities, fishing trips, island exploring, diving and a very well maintained kids club with lots of activities for kids to enjoy.
