Set amidst the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives offers an idyllic getaway where couples can set sail on an unforgettable adventure. One of the most romantic experiences one can have here is to take a private dhoni excursion. A dhoni is a traditional Maldivian sailing vessel and provides a charming way in which to explore the seas around the islands. As you glide along the waters, with that special someone by your side you can take in such enchanting views as the sun setting below the horizon. You may even catch a glimpse of dolphins swimming freely in the water below. Sail to your heart’s content, sipping Champagne and toasting this precious moment. Want to make this outing at sea even more special? Why not cap it off by popping the question! Couples in search of a Maldives luxury resort that offers private Dhoni excursions can consider staying at Naladhu Maldives which provides an intimate hideaway full of romance.

Most people’s idea of a romantic getaway is a location by the water or high up in the mountains. Hoi An on a wonderful riverfront location offers a warm ambience assisted in no small part by its quaint architecture, lush greenery, riverside cafes and moped free winding lanes in the old part of town that invites romantic strolls on moonlit nights. There are a number of romantic resorts available for honeymooners too. Anantara Hoi An Resort in a leafy location by the Thu Bon River offers spacious, elegantly appointed split level guest rooms, junior suites and suites that open out onto balconies overlooking the river or garden. This Hoi An spa resort is known for its range of special experiences that include Vietnamese cooking classes, lantern making and traditional painting classes, culinary adventures involving local and international cuisine, spa treatments inclusive of Vietnamese and other massage therapies and romantic sunset cruises all of which combine to make unforgettable holiday memories of stays at this Hoi An hotel.

Having been an important port in antiquity as well as from the 15th to the 19 centuries, Hoi An, particularly the old part of town, has quite a collection of quaint alleyways and historical and cultural features that exude a distinct atmosphere. This combined with its riverside setting makes it Vietnam’s most romantic town.

The best time to visit Hoi An is on the 14th day of each lunar month when the town switches off its lights for the full moon festival and is at its most romantic. At this time Hoi An is crowded with couples holding hands and enjoying the special atmosphere. After a romantic candlelit dinner in a cafe by the river many couples float a candle lit paper boat or a lotus down the river to bring them good luck, happiness and love. Others take a romantic cruise down the Thu Bon River. Then as the activity winds down towards mid night it is indeed romantic to stroll the streets to enjoy some of the city’s famed ancient landmarks such as the Japanese Bridge by moonlight in spite of the crowds. The best way to enjoy this very special occasion is to avail of the special romantic getaway packages offered by the hotels and resorts of the area during this period.
