It was 29th June morning when we started for our destination. We went there by air. We chose Novoair for going and coming back. I personally like Novoair more than the other airlines. They are more organized and disciplined and their service is quite good. We purchased all the tickets two week before our journey which costed us 20000 BDT (2 person round trip) . Our flight was at 7:00 am in the morning. So we got up early in the morning and arrived at the domestic airport. It took almost 45 minutes to reach at Cox's Bazar from Dhaka. The resort had sent one of their stuffs along with a micro bus for receiving us as we took the pick up and drop off service . Then we started for our resort. After almost half an hour we reached at our destination. Their check in time was at 1:00 pm, but as we reached earlier and the room was empty so they gave us the room before the check in time. They welcomed us with a flower necklace and welcome drink.
After entering into the room we saw that the room was decorated very nicely for our honeymoon. Our room had a mesmerizing sea view. The room was quite big and the beauty of that resort was breathtaking. Then we took shower and went for our lunch. The lunch items were very delicious. The dining was little far from our villa but we enjoyed our walk there. The dining was very well decorated. Different people who were visiting Cox's Bazar, came here to have food in the restaurant but their food items were pretty much costly.
In the evening they gave us snacks which was a pizza. Then we went for a walk around the resort. The resort also provides photographer for 2000 BDT for 75 pictures. We took one photographer and captured some moments of ours and the photographer was quite nice and gave us more than 75 pictures. Everytime when it was our meal time, they called in the room for giving reminder. Around 10:00 pm we had our special honeymoon dinner. All the food items were so delicious. The food items were quite expensive there but as we went there in a honeymoon package they provided us with the best foods.
In the next day morning it was raining and I opened the door of the villa then what I saw was really beautiful. The waves of the sea came almost near of our yard. We sat on the balcony and enjoyed the view. After that we had our buffet breakfast. There were so many items in the menu. Then we wanted to go for kayak riding but I wasn't feeling well so I chose to relax at our villa. Then we went out for explore the place. The resort has it's personal beach to enjoy. There were very few in house guests. They also have a very nice gym for the guests. The guests can also take spa if they want. Then we captured some pictures. We didn't go out of the resort as we were very exhausted after all the wedding hassles. In the afternoon me and my husband had tea sitting on our balcony in front of the sea and then we went out for a walk.
At night they provided us a candle light dinner. They decorated the place so beautifully that I can't explain with words! The set up was in the middle of the beach. We could hear the sound of the waves and we were in that place alone. The resort is very well secured that you can enjoy the fullest without any hesitation. This moment is very close to my heart that I will cherish this moment forever in my heart.
In the next day morning after having the buffet breakfast we checked out from our room and the a micro bus dropped us in the airport.
We enjoyed our honeymoon to the fullest because of their hospitality and special behavior towards us. I am very happy that we had chosen Mermaid Beach Resort as our honeymoon destination.
