Cathay Pacific Business Class to the Maldives

written by ChristingC June 19, 2017

When I travel, I find the journey is just as important as the trip itself. The anticipation before you arrive and the sheer excitement of descending into your destination is a huge part of visiting another part of the world. Dan and I planned our trip to the Maldives in celebration of not one but two special occasions, so when we found out Cathay Pacific offered the only direct flight from Hong Kong to Male, we knew it was the only option if we wanted comfort and luxury. We arrived early for check-in eager to start our trip and we melted into vacation mode the minute we set foot in Cathay Pacific’s The Pier Business Class Lounge. The vast space features modern, minimal design and enough relaxing corners for you to enjoy a glass of wine or read a book in peace. As it was Dan’s birthday we toasted our trip at the fully stocked bar with two glasses of champagne and started to revel in the calming atmosphere. We indulged in steaming hot bowls of soup and wontons from the nostalgic noodle bar, lounged while gazing at airplanes taking flight in the tranquil Relaxation Room, and finished with cups of fragrant coffee and conversation in the inviting lounge area. Time passed quickly and before we knew it, we were boarding our flight for Male. We were grateful to be comfortably settled in our Business Class seats where we could sit side by side but still have a sense of privacy and serenity. The staff were welcoming and attentive, greeting us by name and quickly learning our preferences ensuring personal service throughout the flight. We sipped wine and chatted during the mouthwatering tablecloth dinner service before fully reclining in the cozy seats and enjoying the varied and extensive in-flight entertainment on offer. I loved the little details that made their business class unique, such as double sided cotton blankets that were soft and luxurious, as well as the natural and fragrant Jurlique products ensuring moisture for my flight parched skin. We arrived in Male refreshed, rested, and content, starting our vacation on a very good note. I can’t think of a better way to have commenced our Maldives getaway.
