Underwater fantasy at NIYAMA

Underwater fantasy at NIYAMA

Simply Sunday. Every now and again once needs a break from reality, says the gal.  Soar into space? Not likely, and those who put down $200,000 deposit for a trip on Richard Branson‘s Virgin Galactic are plum stupid (I see the Winkelvoss twins have paid for their trips in Bitcoins, hope if they DO get up there there is enough space for their long legs). Anyway, I follow Branson’s biographer Tom Bower in thinking Virgin Galactic will not ever leave the earth (can pigs fly?).  No, head down, below the water. This means going to The Maldives.  Conrad Maldives Rangali Island has an underwater restaurant, or part of it. Per Aquum’s Huvafen Fushi luxury resort has long had an underwater spa – an amazing experience as you look out at coral and fish while your back is being massaged or whatever. Now Huvafen Fushi, and another Per Aquum resort, NIYAMA, are showing, underwater, Andreas Franke’s fairytale photos, through May 2014.  Buy one, and you benefit Per Aquum’s Coral Regeneration Programme. Do good, win-win, and you are sure breaking from reality.  Now back to business, as they say…
