For the perfect Valentine’s Day getaway, nothing beats the Maldives where island romance awaits on a passion-filled holiday for two; here’s more on what to expect.
Private Island Escape
The best choice for couples would be a private island resort the likes of Grand Park Kodhipparu which provides sublime seclusion and plenty of privacy and pampering. Such properties even have special Valentine’s Day offers for stays in a romantic villa where you can enjoy champagne and a traditional flower bath for two; added perks such as a complimentary Balinese spa treatment for two, a sunset cruise and guided house-reef snorkelling will make your valentine’s holiday even more magical.
Intimate Dining Options
A key allure for couples staying at the best resorts in Maldives is the chance to enjoy diverse private dining experiences be it in the day or at night. Ideally, stay at properties which offer a sunrise breakfast by the beach, a gourmet picnic lunch on a sandbank and a floating afternoon tea in your villa pool. As the day draws to a close, you can consider sunset dining on a sheltered part of the shore or an intimate dinner in a jungle area; another option would be to curl up with your partner and savour snacks and wine as you enjoy a private movie screening on the beach!
Holistic Spa Rejuvenation
Experiencing holistic healing with diverse and bespoke spa treatments should be a quintessential part of a holiday in the Maldives not only during Valentine’s Day but whenever you visit. Resorts here give you a chance to enjoy such rejuvenating rituals at an overwater spa that will awaken the senses and put you both in the mood for romance! Some properties will feature a head-to-toe treatment lasting over one hundred minutes for couples as well as spa bath treatments and discounted private spa experiences for two.
Active couples can incorporate plenty of memorable things to do in Maldives during this time too. A perennial favourite would be to embark on a sunset cruise on a traditional boat called a dhoni where you can witness the spellbinding sight of the sun painting the sky in crimson hues; some cruises come with canapes and drinks too, while others will feature a chance to spot dolphins as well. Depending on the resort, you and that special someone can look forward to tandem parasailing together, marine life encounters as part of a complimentary underwater photo session and excursions to secluded sandbanks.
