Fushifaru Maldives welcomed Bollywood actress Richa Chadha and her boyfriend Ali Fazal who surprised her with a romantic getaway vacation for her 32nd birthday.
The destination was a complete surprise to Richa who was whisked away by her “bae” Ali to the magical island of Maldives. Richa reflected on her Facebook page as she “took a seaplane taxi for the first time, to get to Fushifaru Maldives. ‘in the unlikely event of a water landing’ were words I had just heard on flights before, what they don’t tell you is that it’s so much fun! (Hehe, only in this case)! Such a warm welcome from the smiling faces at the resort! Really you can’t help but be full of joy, this place is so serene and beautiful!” From the moment the celebrity couple arrived, they were welcomed by a traditional Boduberu and Sangu (conch) ceremony by Resident Hosts who shared the heartfelt warmth of the Maldivian spirit upon arrival.
The following day, they discovered the abundant marine life at the ‘turtle quest’ expedition where they swam up close and personal with turtles. Richa and Ali disconnected from their busy filming schedules with a relaxing massage at Heylhi Spa and celebrated Richa’s birthday with a romantic private sandbank dinner. Richa was captivated by the clear skies at night and laid on the sand until midnight watching the moon and stars. “Fushifaru Maldives was breathtaking and we can’t wait to come back, it was one of the most enriching experiences of my life!” exclaimed Richa and Ali.
