  • Maldives,

  • home to the most stunning beaches in the world.

  • Known for its crystal-clear waters

  • and marine life,

  • it is the destination to be

  • for romantic getaways.

  • In a coconut shell,

  • TravelSSBD Deluxe

  • is about enjoying the finer things in life.

  • Welcome to my crib.

  • Also, staying in style and comfort

  • but at the same time,

  • embracing the SSBD spirit.

  • I’m ready for a turtle selfie.

  • Let’s go!

  • But before we took off for the islands,

  • I decided to use the points I've accumulated

  • on my past few trips

  • to offset the cost of my hotel booking.

  • So the moment I got

  • to the airport over at Male,

  • I was like

  • Like that!

  • Dude. This is our airport lounge.

  • What!

  • So I’m just gonna eat and drink and chill.

  • This is what a holiday is about.

  • They promise you the most scenic flight.

  • I have to say,

  • that was one of the most best flights ever.

  • If you look down,

  • you get to see some of the most gorgeous views.

  • You see islands,

  • or you know,

  • even see the different gradient colours of water.

  • I was blown away

  • even before I got to the resort.

  • Thank you.

  • This is the most beautiful place ever.

  • Can you believe that paradise

  • is only 30 mins away from the airport?

  • You can the fish in the clear blue waters!

  • Oh! Thank you.

  • What is that?

  • Sobe.

  • Oh. Sobe.

  • Yes

  • We had to take a Dhoni.

  • Oh my god. That’s the boat?

  • And we took that straight to the room.

  • You get to marvel at the gorgeous colour of the sea.

  • It was truly, a sight to behold

  • and youll be taking pictures, non-stop.

  • Yes!

  • We are here.

  • We are here.

  • Oh my gosh.

  • It’s on the water?

  • The moment I checked into my room,

  • I was like,

  • Heaven, is this you?

  • It, literary, is by the ocean.

  • You can snorkel here,

  • like, right outside my "house"?

  • Gorgeous.

  • I can see myself living here forever.

  • So it’s only a couple of hours

  • since we settled down here

  • at the Conrad at Maldives,

  • and I am blown away.

  • But I can’t wait for things

  • to get into

  • full SWING.

  • I knew it!

  • I got it.

  • Where the sun don’t shine?

  • That’s dirty.

  • Not the dirty way. OK.

  • I need to think clean.

  • I can’t.

  • So you gotta tell me what the answer is.

  • Were going into a secret room?

  • After you.

  • Woah.

  • It turned out to be one of the

  • most gorgeous wine cellars I’ve ever seen.

  • Is this a private wine-tasting room?

  • They even show you instructional videos

  • while you have the wine connoisseur

  • sit in the middle of the table

  • If youre a wine lover,

  • And this is quite exclusive,

  • so if you ever want a wine-pairing or tasting dinner,

  • I want this every day for breakfast!

  • you have to book it way in advance.

  • Cheers, guys!

  • Cheers!

  • Wanna try this one?

  • Yeah. I know.

  • Its good, right?

  • My happening social life...

  • as usual.

  • Yup.

  • So the moment I checked into the Conrad

  • here at the Maldives,

  • and I realised one very special thing

  • about all the Conrad hotels in the world

  • and that is their website called

  • Conrad 1 3 5.

  • In the event

  • that you're at any Conrad location

  • for 1 hr, 3 hrs or 5 hrs,

  • they will recommend you

  • things to do in that particular spot!

  • So it’s really, really cool!

  • And I do hear that maybe

  • you could get married

  • within an hour.

  • Don’t take it from me, actually.

  • I don’t know.

  • I’m just saying.

  • but check it out.

  • Conrad 1 3 5.

  • Were going to another island

  • for some cocktails and dinner.

  • I’m having too much fun here

  • and it’s only been like 2 hrs!

  • Whassup.

  • People are judging me

  • for talking to a bird.

  • So I hear that his name is George

  • and he’s about to be

  • my first friend on the island.

  • Hey, girlfriend.

  • Wanna go for a cocktail later?

  • Me too.

  • I’m ok.

  • I don’t know

  • I don’t know what youre talking about.

  • I’m fine.

  • So this is how the signature drink

  • is meant to look like.

  • I think I can imagine

  • if it was like a really hot afternoon

  • and you have this

  • Hits.

  • The.

  • Spot.

  • Dinner at Atoll was glorious.

  • They had a huge spread of

  • every kind of cuisine you can imagine.

  • I’m so greedy.

  • I, like, have to carry everything at once.

  • You don’t have to venture very far out

  • for a very scrumptious dinner.

  • It’s right there at the restaurant.

  • So the very next day

  • That was a workout.

  • Were off for our very first activity today.

  • I was told to wear something

  • that I can get wet in

  • and I guess this is it!

  • NOT in a nutshell.

  • That means it’s gonna be a long activity.

  • Right?

  • What does this mean?

  • We are going to see...

  • Turtles.

  • Turtles!

  • Yes!

  • We are going to see turtles!

  • Yes.

  • I used to own a terrapin.

  • Oh.

  • It’s like this.

  • Yeah. He's not impressed. You see?

  • It was phenomenal

  • cos you saw, not just the turtles,

  • you get to swim with them

  • when they surface to get some air.

  • And you are even allowed

  • to take a selfie with them!

  • So, I think I got mine!

  • But you know what,

  • I think it really goes beyond that

  • because, here at the Maldives,

  • they really take care of the ocean.

  • They say, hey, remember,

  • even if they look pretty,

  • try not to touch them.

  • You know, and I think that’s really meaningful

  • beyond everything that tourists want to do.

  • And also,

  • think twice before you drink turtle soup again.

  • So after we returned,

  • I got to do a very exclusive,

  • complimentary water sport

  • and it was actually paddle boarding!

  • Well, I’ve never been on a paddle board before.

  • More difficult than it seems.

  • I was very distracted by all the beautiful sights

  • that I forgot about my aching legs.

  • And I made it.

  • So after a long morning and afternoon

  • doing both paddle boarding

  • and snorkeling with the turtles,

  • we are having a well-deserved lunch

  • and I’m having chicken tikka.

  • Would you like to

  • TIKKA bite?

  • This is the life.

  • So we just went to freshen up,

  • I went to take a shower

  • Were not done with the activities?

  • Upskirt?

  • That’s what everyone’s been doing to me already.

  • No. I’m kidding.

  • I’ve been wearing shorts, though.

  • Upskirt.

  • What could this mean?

  • Come on.

  • Stop SKIRTING around the issue.

  • Let’s go.

  • It turned out to be the beautiful underwater restaurant.

  • They sunk this entire glass dome thing

  • into the water.

  • I cannot get enough of this place.

  • And they serve dinner or lunch

  • while you actually marvel

  • at all the fish going around the dome.

  • Oh my god.

  • The guy is just, like, cleaning the

  • And they also said that it’s so sparkly

  • that the glass reflects light,

  • it actually attracts the fish.

  • If you do want a very unique experience,

  • that is the place to be.

  • 7 tables only.

  • Very exclusive.

  • You have to book it way in advance.

  • If you don’t have a diving license,

  • I think this is the place to be.

  • I’m so bad at fishing.

  • You know this!

  • Anything else,

  • other than hooking a guy,

  • this is difficult.

  • They do it the traditional way.

  • The fish eat fish?

  • Seriously?

  • So they don’t actually have a fishing rod.

  • It’s just straight off the reel.

  • It is

  • something!

  • You need to hook it.

  • And on top of that,

  • they say it’s almost guaranteed

  • that you will get a fish.

  • What!

  • Where did that come from?

  • So, one thing I’m definitely very proud of

  • is that I managed to catch a fish

  • in 5 mins.

  • Tops.

  • I got one!

  • If I can do it, honestly,

  • so can you!

  • Whassup.

  • High 5.

  • It’s REEL.

  • I managed to catch Garoupas

  • It’s the same guy again?

  • But they were so pretty,
