The Summer House is a summer-long family residence where dreams can become reality and by returning each year, memories can be revisited and renewed. Effervescent mornings, watching the sun climb a clear blue sky while sinking into a bubbling jacuzzi, while sipping a glass of something bubbly!
In the words of Longfellow, “My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.” To sit and gaze upon the waters of the Maldives is not to waste time. It’s a unique opportunity to let the rhythm of the tropics take you over and carry you away.
A Maldivian barefoot paradise such as the Summer Island Maldives wouldn’t be complete without a Premium Beach Villa. To understand the real meaning of a barefoot paradise – the gentle breeze ruffling your hair as you admire another perfect sunset, your toes sinking into the white sand or the occasional sight of a proud heron making its way across the beach, it has to be experienced first hand.
Throwing open your window in a Superior Vista room is like surrendering yourself to nature. Coming face to face with the swaying, elegant palm trees framing the ocean beyond and being able to witness the world from a new perspective and then the transformation of light from day to night. To gaze into this infinity across the horizon offers the perfect place for contemplation.
Who was it who said…reflection is best done and more meaningful beneath the leafy fronds and in the dappled shade of a swaying palm tree. The time to wonder and be refreshed and refresh others. The perfect antidote to mere existence within the space of tranquillity and peace but outside of the box!
The late sun is starting its slow decent on the distant horizon and shafts of orange light hit your eyes as you step from your Superior Bungalow onto the sunlit verandah shared only with darting, dazzling butterflies that flutter by, busy but aimless in pursuit of who knows what. A burst of welcoming freshness greets you upon your return to the cool comfort of your room.
Look no further than just next to the Samuga main restaurant and bar to find the Garden Rooms. Situated as they are, close to some of the main wining and dining facilities, means that the walk ‘home’ is no more than a step or two away.
