It is well known that breakfast is one of the most important events of the day. A good and healthy breakfast gives you the energy to tackle all activities in the best possible way, allowing you to arrive at lunchtime still full of energy. The hot drink that accompanies you during breakfast, whether it’s latte, tea or coffee, warms your body and soul. Breakfast manages to get you out of bed, especially if there is a freshly baked homemade cake waiting for you, or a croissant filled with so much joy, or maybe, for some, even a single drop of sugar in an exaggeratedly restricted coffee. For many, breakfast is the sense of warmth of their home, of the kitchen that begins to light up at the first light of dawn, in the winter of the still dominant street lighting, of the rain that pours against the window panes, for the lucky ones, of the snow that covers with its white mantle all the silhouettes of the road. In summer, however, breakfast accompanies the sweet song of the early birds, we are warmed inside and outside by the first warm rays of the sun.
Today with Marco Carè, photographer and diver of the NAKAI Group, we will do something different than the articles we have produced together so far. We will leave aside the underwater wonders of the Indian Ocean and the Maldives, to instead focus on everyday life and on how to experience it in the NAKAI Resorts. Let’s let Marco, who lives our Resorts every day and is totally immersed in their magical and infinite facets, to tell what it means to start the day in the Maldives, with a sea view breakfast, to watch the sun rise. in the sky:
“Honestly, I really pay a lot of attention to my breakfast and it is thanks to it I can get up at any time, even the most unlikely ones, to launch into activities that are sometimes trying or extremely exciting. Although breakfast is synonymous with “home”, for me there is not only the warm and comfortable family environment to enjoy a delicious breakfast. There are places in the world where, when you sit down and order a tea and a croissant, you look around and feel truly satisfied and full of joy.
A coffee taken in St. Mark’s Square in Venice in the early summer morning, for example, or a hot tea drunk directly from the thermal bottle together with a biscuit while you sit to observe the Aurora at the table of the Plateau Rosa refuge on the top of the Cervino mountain. Or a fantastic cappuccino with brioche served with kindness and style by the staff of the Cafè Il Piccolo in the square of Capri, in front of the legendary Faraglioni, in short…. There are infinite places where we can delight in a sweet charge to restore body and spirit.
But one above all fills my heart in a very particular way. It may be because for twenty years I have dedicated my life to the sea to this part, and with the sea I live my daily life, sharing every single moment of my day with him. Therefore, having the honor and privilege of being able to have breakfast on the magnificent terrace of the Specialty Restaurant of the NAKAI Dhiggiri Resort, in the Vaavu Atoll, in the heart of the Maldives, takes on a completely extraordinary value. The terrace faces east, so I make sure to be present as soon as the very kind and polite staff of the restaurant opens, so that I can delight in the incredible Maldivian sunrise. The breakfast is excellent, plentiful, healthy, with the pastry with you never miss the flavors of home. In addition, the sound of the sea streams that pass under the suspended terrace make you fully perceive the power, strength and harmony of the Indian Ocean. The gentle wind passes between the well-assorted tables of the restaurant, and if you stretch your gaze a little towards the horizon, you can often observe the dolphins returning from the nocturnal hunting in the open sea through the Kandu, the Dhiggiri channel in communication the ocean with the interior of the atoll “.
This time we wanted to do a technical experiment, and while Marco makes the photograph with which we try to represent the emotions we have described to you, we also recorded the original audio of the Sea passing under the terrace of the Specialty Restaurant of the NAKAI Resort in Dhiggiri. We hope with all our heart that we have been able, even if only for a moment, to convey the magical atmosphere that you experience when having breakfast in Paradise.
