When I went to the Maldives with one very special friend of mine, we had to take a seaplane to get to our island. We were staying at the St. Regis Resort in the Maldives and the only way for us to get there was with a short seaplane transfer. This seaplane transfer cost us lots of money as they charge a fortune for the ride! But with no other choice, other than not staying at the hotel of course, we just had to do it. The ride was a pretty quick one, and before we knew it we were landing on the island that houses the famous St. Regis Maldives!
