A Miracle Story in Maldives一个关于马尔代夫潜水的奇迹故事

OCEAN LAGOON HOUSE 1

我们潜完浮出水面的时候,Antonio的脸色变得很难看。他说: “Maggie的GoPro被我掉了!”

这下完蛋了!要知道,这里面可有我10多天的旅游视频,而且我都来不及备份呢? 我心里很难过,但我没法说出来,因为我要顾及Antonio的情绪,他此时肯定比我还郁闷。还没来得及回应他们,Antonio和Minnie马上决定重新换气瓶,下去碰碰运气。我焦急等待的40分钟里,我想想这是大海捞针的节奏呢,要找回来几乎不太可能,这时,我望着大海,不断祈祷奇迹会发生。可是奇迹没有发生……至少上午没有(哭死@:@), 预知结果如何,请继续阅读……
Guess what happened in Maldives. I had gone through a roller coaster mood of changes in about 5 hours when I did my second dive at Amilla Fushi, Maldives. Please find the whole story, click Read More….

在这样的环境里,做一场冥想,和大海诉说我的心情。大自然永远给人一种和谐的能量,旅行对我来说就是和大自然对话,吸收宇宙最天然的能量。在Amilla Fushi,各种水上运动和SPA,也是宠爱自己的一个方式。

Lisa,这位来自南非的身心灵理疗专家,她不仅学识丰富,有着也是个环游世界旅行达人,她在wellness行业有着丰富的经验,她带着我在这天然氧气吧做瑜伽,她的能量和我很契合。通常身心灵协调得非常顺畅的人都是心平气和的。40分钟的私人瑜伽课之后,我感到一如既往的精神饱满。她还倾听了我的想法并指导我如何每天晚上睡觉前要学会深呼吸,学会了这招30秒内就可以进入深度睡眠。

早餐决定尝尝新的菜品,我点了熏制鲑鱼配蛋,奶酪,粥(竟然还有中式的粥)海藻饮料等。这里的烤芦笋才是一绝,好吃到我每天都点,后来他们还没等到点菜就迅速上一盘给我,这种服务真是到家。

我能在吃早餐的时候看如此令人激动的风景,真是美呆了。这个游泳池据说是全马尔代夫最大的泳池。(下图拍摄者:Amilla Fushi唯一的中国潜水教练Minnie Xiong)

午后:  Antonio推荐我去SPA 旁的jetty码头浮潜,这是岛屿的另一边,太阳照射在水里,让我感觉好像在天堂一样,透过水的折射,我悠闲得游着,貌似可以在水里做冥想了。

傍晚:在日落前醒来,在沙滩漫步,仰望天空,天上的云奇形怪状,却别有一番风味, Rae强烈推荐我来“日落酒吧” 每周三的聚会,这里的客人和员工都会举着香槟,伴着日落亲切交流。
IMG_5497_副本
这种Amilla特有的交流方式受到了游客的好评,在这里第一个被我搭讪的就是Dive Butler的一群很酷的”国际潜水教练“,我还认识了来自世界各地的来度蜜月的帅哥美女们。一对来自香港的夫妻,德国的夫妇,他们告诉我每年都会回马代(国际土豪)。还有一对美国和俄罗斯的一家人。虽然有这么多人,你还是可以享受属于“我们”的私密空间。这就是Amilla的独到之处。

据说马尔代夫可以潜蓝洞,来自意大利的Antonio是Amilla潜水团队Diver Butler(潜水管家)的老大,他讲着一口浓郁的意大利英语,别看他身材不大,人家竟然是Marine biologist (海洋生物学)研究者。
如果你是第一次体验潜水的话, Dive Bulter绝对是安全和舒服的代言词了。撇开Antonio专业又丰富的经历不说,Dive Bulter的国际教练使得潜水变得更加有趣,我还在这里认识了新西兰的Fin 和中国的可爱女生Minnie。他们传授的潜水技巧和耐心体贴的服务态度让初学者十分安心。潜水中心配备了目前最新最好的装备,我敢这么说那是因为之前我看到过东南亚国家的潜水中心的装备真的是有待改善。
IMG_5389_副本
今天真的很幸运,天气超级蓝。坐船5分钟就到达蓝洞的上方了。这里我就不多说了,视频会告诉你整个过程的。在视频里,Antonio帮助我完成了又一次蓝洞潜水:马尔代夫的海底世界真的是令人臣服,瞬间震撼,海水和呼吸声相伴入耳,我已经学会了在水下呼吸要长而慢,尽可能深度感觉这个“阿凡达的世界”。

在Jaavu水疗中心,我又见到了Lisa,她还是那样温暖,正能量爆棚。这座在Amilla的水疗中心不仅仅空间大,项目品种也各式多样,所谓真正的奢华在于细节之处,所有的洗浴和按摩精油均来自于全世界顶级SPA牌子”Ila“, “Pure massage”由英国的专业学者所创,按摩师都必须经过Lisa亲自训练才可以上岗,她们都在国外有多年理疗经验。相似的,面部产品来自QMS和forerunner这个专为高端科学护肤而创的品牌。

享受顶级SPA的饗宴,做一场舒活的SPA, 我选择的是招牌面部按摩和全身倒时差按摩,给我做按摩的芳疗师来自摩洛哥,这里一共有20位来自不同国家,不同领域的芳疗师。难道马尔代夫是全世界人民向往工作的地方?

在设施充足的健身房边上是面朝沙滩的休息室。我一眼就爱上了这个特别的干湿桑拿,一边蒸桑拿,一边观望大海,这是如此醉人的体验。我想到了Lisa跟我介绍的构思和设计理念,这个Spa中心可谓是绿洲中的净地。

5月的天气虽然开始渐入雨季,但是黄昏依旧不负众望,火烧云如期到来,我和我新认识的香港朋友Vivien以及他老公在酒吧尝试了水烟,享用了鸡尾酒,这里我不得不提一下,马尔代夫全岛都是禁酒的,如果居民偷偷在家饮酒,都算犯法,所以很多岛上都不能饮酒,Amilla为了让客人能体验到最佳度假状态,特别运来了各种酒,在这个小岛上,尽然还有一个澳洲酒窖。

最后一天,我不舍得离开呢 🙁

我十点才起床,睡眼惺惺地点了早餐服务,看着大海,享用我的早餐。尽管,这是我在马代的倒数第二天了,也是最后一天真正可以尽情享受这片大海了。明天中午我就得收拾东西退房前往机场了,想到这里,真心让我觉得时间过得好快,真希望假期可以再长一些。但是反过来想想,如果假期可以随意延长的话,其实也没多少意思了。

猜猜今天发生了什么大事!心情跌宕起伏,如同坐了过山车,还好结局是完美的:)

和Antonio还有Minnie去另外一个潜水点。这次坐船需要半个小时,一切都进行得很顺利,直到……

我们潜完浮出水面的时候,Antonio的脸色变得很难看。他说: “Maggie的GoPro被我掉了!”

这下完蛋了!要知道,这里面可有我10多天的旅游视频,而且我都来不及备份呢? 我心里很难过,但我没法说出来,因为我要顾及Antonio的情绪,他此时肯定比我还郁闷。怎么办呢?

中午和下午我只做一件事,就是疯狂补拍镜头,因为我只剩一个下午了。下午4点左右,Antonio发消息告诉我,他们一行5位潜水教练准备“营救Maggie的Gopro行动”,胜算嘛?大海捞针? 我没有多想,继续拍摄,可是心情down到谷底。

就这样,一个小时过去了,突然我的微信传来一张满是欢笑的照片: Maggie, 你的Gopro找到了,天啊!我当时觉得这么奇迹的事真的被我遇到了,简直太不可思议了。所有潜水教练为了我特地回去寻找相机这件事情,我的内心充满了无数的感激,我哽咽的无法用言语表达,我只记得我后来一直笑得合不拢嘴。

GoPro回归后,我不再像之前那么情绪低落了,我在Beatrice的陪伴下体验了一次别样的wine 和cheese之旅。她是Amilla两大杰出的调酒师之一。我深深地被她渊博的知识和推荐的红酒奶酪组合折服了。Beatrice带我参观了藏品丰富的酒窖,同时也给我介绍了不同种类的红酒和奶酪配什么样的腊肠和坚果。

晚上据说我们可以去Lonu用餐。这一家旗舰餐厅是澳大利亚第一大厨Luke Mangan先生开的。这里的食物不仅仅有着高级标准,它的味道和摆盘都是满分。餐厅坐落的方位无可挑剔,并且美味的食物使得附近岛屿的本地人和游客都专程跑来只为尝一尝鲜。

那晚,我在自己的别墅里,坐在露天阳台上,看着满天的繁星。听着阵阵浪潮声,回味着最后一天在马尔代夫的奇特经历。很快,我即将和这些让我感觉已经认识很久的伙伴们告别了,我跑去Dive Bulter的办公室和那帮热心帮我找到GoPro的潜水教练们,他们用蛋糕和红酒为我送别,我会一直想他们。
IMG_5563_副本
当我坐上快艇,渐渐离去的时候,我回望那美丽的地方,Amilla Fushi,这座充满灵性,神奇特别的岛屿,在这里度过的4天,其实我早已把这里当成了另外一个家。现在,我带着有趣的故事,经历,新的友情和珍贵的回忆在这里和你分享,希望,你可以自己去体验一番。

It was a new day again. After my morning rituals and a bit of talking to the ocean. I was set for a nice workout. I remembered, Aswad took me through some papers which were various offerings of the health and spa section. The stay at Amilla comes with complimentary watersports and daily Spa. Above that various weekly activities one can take part.

It seemed I had the option of doing a beginner’s yoga with Ryoko or/and a Pilate’s session with vinyasa flow yoga with Lisa. The flow yoga is something I had enjoyed in the past and tried even during the Sri Lanka trip.
7_副本
So, I checked the timings and decided on trying thesession with Lisa. When I arrived, I was welcomed by Lisa. In the following days, she would become one of my favorite people on the Island. I had always enjoyed the company of spiritual and health oriented people. And Lisa, had a wealth of knowledge and experience in the health and wellness industry. She has a very calming air to her.
IMG_5291_副本
The Yoga lasted for about 40 minutes and as expected it had me feeling energetic and happy. While, I could have gone about chatting with Lisa the whole day as she politely and patiently listened to me and offered her thoughts. Something in my stomach told me that I was starting to get very hungry now.

It was about 10am now, as my buggy dropped me to the breakfast restaurant. This time I was determined to go beyond the varieties of cereals and fruits. I ordered eggswith smoked salmon, some breakfast cheese and a Spirulina smoothie. However,it was the grilled asparagus (my favorite) that bought be some form of popularity at the restaurant. I’d ask for it every day and soon enough the staff became prompt enough to bring it without me having to ask.
IMG_5529_副本
Later that afternoon, I continued my snorkelling session and went further exploring a different corner of the island that seemed more active with the underwater life. I came back for a nap and woke up fresh before the sunset. I took a walk down to this tiny beach that I would often pass by on the buggy. There was a dramatic build of clouds but the view was nevertheless eye catching. Several beautiful pictures got added to the collection.

Post sunset, I went back to the room to prepare for a gathering at the sunset bar. Last night at the dinner, Rae extended me an invitation to a sort of weekly meet where fellow guests and the staff get to meet each other over champagne on the house and a gorgeous sunset view.
The concept, very unique to Amilla received very positive feedbacks from the guests. Besides, meeting the whole gang of cool people from Dive Butler, I got introduced to a lot of the friendly staff and fellow guests. This was a very versatile mix of people ranging from a lovely couple from HongKong to the German couple who had made Maldives their routine once a year, an American couple, a holidaying family from Russia and many more honeymooning couples. I must point out that even with so many people there is nothing that comes in the way of privacy. This was an achievement on the part of Amilla.
IMG_5496_副本
When my eyes opened, I could tell this was going to be the most special of my days. Because after meeting the wonderful pack from Dive Butler yesterday, I couldn’t have looked more forward to diving with them. Antonio, who sort of heads the unit at Amilla is a genius with a great sense of humor. To think of all those people for whom Maldives would be the first dive into the water. I don’t think there is anything safer and so comfortable than the Dive Butler.
IMG_5389_副本
Besides, Antonio’s expertise and rich experience, Dive Butler has some of the finest instructors who make diving so much more fun. Not only are they amongst the most recognized but their approach to diving and high standards make them very trustworthy.
The center at Amilla is well stocked and equipped with the latest of the best. I say that because I have a bit of diving experience and have seen several diving centers. Plus, I had done my pre-trip research about it.
IMG_5431_副本
Today to my good fortune, the weather was fantastic as always and we were soon geared up and on our boat to the blue hole. I will save this one for all the wonderful videos to tell u the story. The videos courtesy Antonio helped me sort of archive yet another one of my successful blue hole dives. At the risk of sounding repetitive, and it goes without saying, that when in Maldives, diving is an absolute must! And diving with Dive Butler only means doing the best thing in the best way with the best people!
IMG_5585_副本_副本
I was experiencing high levels of the thing they called “joy”. After that fantastic dive with Antonio. I was planned to see yet another favorite person of mine. Lisa, at the Jaavu Spa awaited me with all the warmth and positiveness that she radiates. The Spa at Amilla is simply mind boggling. Not only it is huge in size and menu very extensive, but it also seems like an independent destination in itself.

Theirs are tied up with some big and premium brands that provide high quality products. For example, I was informed that the products that were used in body treatments that I opted for were by the luxury holistic brand called “ila”. While the style of massages that I received were by “pure massage ” , a technique developed by a London based massage expert.
All the masseuses have received training for it. Similarly, the facial productsare by QMS and forerunner in advanced and scientific products for the healthy skin.

Not only hanging out here got me friends but also i was now equipped with such helpful tips and valuable pointers on health and skin management. Lisa, who hails from South Africa is not only well read and travelled but also a master of her art. I received several treatments and massages at the spa during the course of my stay. Needless to say all very satisfactory. The staff comprises of some of the nicest massuese and experts from the field and from very different parts of the world creating a very unique atmosphere.
12
There is even a tea lounge that faces the beach and is next to the fully equipped gym.This lounge, the jacuzzi and sauna section were fast becoming my favorite hangouts. If I am to recommend something from the spa, then the very relaxing “facial massage” would definitely be one the must try’s. My dinner time companions were my new friends and fellow vacationers, a couple from Hong Kong. We tried “sheesha” by the bar and some well done cocktails. With good company,good food and a wonderful atmosphere. Time just kept flying by.

I slept very long and by the time I was up it was past 10am. So, I ordered breakfast in the room and coupled the breakfast with my morning routine of sitting at the deck and watching the ocean. Although, this would be my second last day on the island but activities wise the last.

As tomorrow I shall be checking out by noon and headed to the airport. This for a second made me wish the holiday had been longer. But then again it wouldn’t be a holiday if it would be as long as Iwish wishing. Let’s skip that!

Guess what? I had another dive planned with Antonio today. While all went perfect, we ended up losing my camera in the ocean. Now with the size that ocean and with only rough idea where it could have fallen. Practically, it meant the go pro was lost forever.
20130914161149_RLsjT_副本_副本
While, that did affect my mood slightly and slow me down. Things were miraculously turned around, making me crazy joyful upon receiving a picture and message from the diving crew. It said they managed to recover it. And Antonio found it.
IMG_5453_副本
To think of the whole crew having gone back to the ocean, all the way to the diving spot. And all of them down there looking for this one small thing in that gigantic ocean. It never ceases to amaze me how sweet these people are. I was short of words when I was reunited with my GoPro but I do remember hugging people!
16
Now, with the day turned around and me extra joyful. There was a special wine and cheese tasting tour planned with Beatrice who is one of the two brilliant wine experts at Amilla.
From, being somebody who had little or limited amount of guidance on cheese oreven wine. Things were turned around the second time during the day as I was impressed by Beatrice’s knowledge and suggestions of cheese and wine combinations. This is yet another one of those unique experiences that I managed only at Amilla.
IMG_5442_副本
Beatrice showed me around the well kept wine cellar with a fine collection. She also introduced me to several ideologies and developments of that business. It also helped me figure out better various cheese and wine, that go well with which kind of food. And of course a 101 on cheese and wine. This would be one of the things I would look forward to doing again whenever there is an expert like Beatrice in the house and a collection of wine and cheese like at Amilla’s.

The sunset hour was spent at the spa and the tea lounge. Later, that evening I was joined by Rae and Antonio for drinks at the sunset bar. And it followed a dinner reservation at Lonu, the flagship restaurant of the premier Australian chef Luke Mangan.
IMG_5497_副本
This was the most impressionable dining experiences. And I can’t help but wish for such an experience again. The food not only had its own class but the flavours and presentation got full marks. The staff very able and equipped with all that is needed in helping you achieve that superior dining experience. Location unbeatable and food most importantly the reason why people from nearby islands and guests at other luxurious resorts made special trips here for the taste of luxury in food.
IMG_5520_副本
That night, I spent a while watching the stars from the deck of my villa. The calming roar of the waves and the realization of having had a beautiful day beats all other bedtime realizations.
IMG_5461_副本
I had my last long talk with the ocean in the morning, as I meditated. Soon, I would have breakfast at the restaurant and thank all the staff that by now seem to know me so well and feel like family. I will have Aswad looking after me for a few more hours and being so good at it.
I will walk to the spa to wish Lisa lots of luck, say my goodbye’s and hope to visit her again. I will stop by the Dive butler office and the whole gang would have cake and wine with me as I tell them I would miss it all.
IMG_5563_副本
And when the speed boat will pick me up and zoom away into the ocean. I shall have my eyes set on my beautiful island home Amilla. The very island, I came for a holiday, that I made home the past few days. And now I go back with more than beautiful stories, experiences, new found friendships and precious memories that I now share with you and hope that you will create your own too…
IMG_5509_副本
Again, many thanks to Amilla Fushi, DestinationElite.com, Dive Butler, FlyMe for sponsoring my trips in Maldives, all the experience belongs to me.
