Secluded shores, azure waters, magical sunsets, luxurious indulgences, and moments to cherish; these are some of the highlights that make the Maldives such a perfect honeymoon destination and here’s a guide to help plan such a getaway!
Private Island Resorts
Choosing to stay at a resort on a private island is a must, though, for the ultimate privacy, properties like OBLU SELECT Sangeli take it a step further by offering a separate adults-only island. Such resorts will have a special overwater honeymoon suite with a private pool, sundeck with sunbeds and direct lagoon access, while a welcome bottle of champagne and a dedicated butler service add to the experience.
Be it after your wedding or vow renewal in Maldives, you can look to enjoy sublime holistic healing at a resort spa. Choose such a sanctuary where you and your partner can get pampered at a treatment room for couples. Apart from modern wellness rituals, choose a spa that also incorporates Maldivian therapies including a full-body coconut shell massage and coconut body scrubs.
Mealtimes on your honeymoon in Maldives can be just as magical with the island setting providing enchanting backdrops. Not to be missed is an intimate candlelit, four-course dinner with wine on a sheltered part of the beach, amidst the soothing sights and serenades of the ocean. Some resorts even offer a champagne breakfast or a “floating breakfast” in your villa’s private pool!
When it comes to romantic things to do here on a honeymoon, couples can embark on a moonlight cruise under a sky blanketed with a myriad of stars. For something different, you can also go dolphin watching or visit a local island to experience local culture. Newlyweds in search of added adventures won’t be disappointed either with snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, parasailing and more on offer.
