Private Island Resorts

The chance to celebrate your special day on a private island is not to be missed and is offered by resorts here the likes of OBLU SELECT Lobigili which has one just for couples! The best thing is, that such properties will take care of all the planning as well as decorating the venue and setting up the ceremony; afterwards, you can look to stay at an overwater pool villa which adds to the romance.

Idyllic Settings

When you opt to have a wedding or renewal of vows at the best resorts in Maldives for couples, you will get the chance to choose from diverse enchanting settings. Of course, a beach with a decorated area and an aisle of sand beside the Indian Ocean during sunset is a popular choice. For something different, some resorts will offer to host the ceremony on a heart-shaped sandbank offering the ultimate seclusion!

Memorable Ceremonies

It’s not just the settings that are distinctive but the ceremonies too. Some resorts will offer a dedicated ceremony master who will ensure things run smoothly; aspects like a wedding cake-cutting ceremony, a bottle of Champagne to celebrate the occasion, local snacks, and a renewal of vows certificate can be offered too. Properties may even provide a specially curated wedding gift hamper as well!

Unique Honeymoons

After the ceremony, couples can look forward to unforgettable honeymoons; you can savour an intimate candlelit dinner on the beach, while some resorts will additionally offer a romantic photoshoot and a special “floating breakfast” in the pool of a villa! Other highlights can include spa rituals for couples, sunset or full moon private cruises and movie nights on the beach under the stars.

Unlike the usual romantic locations for couples, Singapore is perfect for those who wish to explore and grow together while also pampering themselves.

Adventure together!

This city has wonderful tropical weather all year round, which allows you to enjoy outdoor activities together as a couple. From exploring the enchanting Gardens by the Bay to going skating at The Rink, there are so many cute options for couple adventures!

Get pampered

There is nothing more soothing than getting spoilt with your loved one and you can book spa treatments and massages after exploring and creating adventures together for some much-needed self-pampering.

Find romance in food

Singapore is an exciting place for foodies. Ranging from street food to expensive rooftop dining one must make time to experience the entire range so you can understand the different types of dishes and tastes by exploring the streets.

Private Island Getaways

Amongst the unique allures here is the chance to stay at a resort on its own private island that offers sublime seclusion and serenity. Such properties feature beach villas, though newlyweds should look to alternatively try an overwater villa for a unique and intimate experience. Ideal options include OBLU XPERIENCE Ailafushi which as one of the best Maldives all-inclusive resorts also offers a package with dining delights, unlimited drinks, selected non-motorised water sports and more.

Romantic Dining

Staying at an island resort means that couples can look forward to plenty of opportunities for romantic meals together with dinners on the beach under star-studded skies being a popular choice. Of course, certain properties take dining for couples literally to new depths in a good way; this can be experienced at some resorts that feature an underwater restaurant where you can dine amidst views of coral and marine life!

Spa Healing

After all the rushing about for the wedding, the honeymoon is the perfect period for couples to just take time off to relax and feel rejuvenated which also sets the mood for romance! Resort spas in Maldives offer the ideal setting with treatment rooms for couples so you and your partner can embark on a wellness journey together. Amongst the highlights would be signature local healing rituals such as a Maldivian sand bundle massage and a coconut shell massage.

Enchanting Cruises

One of the best things to do on a Maldives honeymoon is to set off on romantic cruises. The most popular option would be a sunset cruise on a traditional boat called a dhoni, providing the perfect vantage point to witness the sun dipping below the horizon, painting the sky in mesmerising hues. For something different, stay at a resort that also offers a private full moon cruise where you can take in a magical sight at night amidst the serenades of the sea.

Maldives

When it comes to a country that exudes romance and offers the perfect setting for a destination wedding, you can hardly find a better choice than the Maldives and here’s more that couples should know.

The Legalities

You may be surprised to know that while in the Maldives, destination weddings are very popular, those featuring two foreign nationals are not legally binding. However, don’t let that stop you from planning a wedding or renewal of vows ceremony here! Many couples tend to have a legally-binding wedding or register the marriage in their home country and have an enchanting and symbolic ceremony in this tropical paradise.

Resorts & Locations

For such a ceremony, the ideal choice would be an island resort with options like OBLU SELECT Lobigili being even more suitable since it’s exclusively for adults only adding to the privacy. The great thing is, such properties provide a choice of location for your special day; a secluded beach that’s been decorated and set amidst infinite ocean views is a perennial favourite, though some resorts even give couples a chance to renew their vows on a heart-shaped sandbank for two!

Types of Ceremonies

Those planning to tie the knot can look to have a conventional Western-style ceremony where the bride and groom wear typical wedding attire that makes for mesmerising pictures as well. That said, some resorts will offer the choice to incorporate more traditional local aspects for a truly distinctive Maldives wedding. It can include a “Bodu Beru” drum procession, Maldivian attire, a wedding officiant or dedicated ceremony master and delectable local snacks.

Special Additions

Resorts here will make your destination wedding even more unforgettable with certain inclusions on, during and after your special day. These can include transporting the couple to the ceremony location in a decorated buggy, a three-tier wedding cake-cutting ceremony, a curated wedding gift hamper, a bottle of champagne and a four-course, candlelit beach dinner. You could also stay at a luxurious beach or overwater villa with a private pool and sunset views for a magical honeymoon too!

Maldives

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.

Wellness Journeys

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.

Intimate Dining

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!

Memorable Experiences

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.

Singapore –known to be the ‘gateway’ or stopover city for many travellers, can often be overlooked as a romantic destination for lovers. The Lion City, however, has a plethora of things to do for newlywed honeymooners or simply those seeking a romantic escape! Here are the top 4 things to indulge in during your romantic honeymoon in Singapore.

Take a stroll through Garden by the Bay

This impressive nature park located on the edge of Marina Bay Sands and a quick drive from many a studio apartment in Singapore consists of an innovative waterfront and three expansive gardens spanning a massive 101 hectares. A walk through this dreamy garden with your new partner is indeed enchanting and will surely create memories to last a lifetime. Don’t forget to check out the sparkling array of tropical flora and enchanting Cloud Forest during your romantic stroll here!

Enjoy dinner in the Singapore Flyer

If food is your love language, a 4-course meal inside one of the spacious capsules of the Singapore Flyer is a must! Indulge in beautiful sunset views as you watch the sky change colours and enjoy some delicious mouthwatering food!

Go on a thrilling night safari

The city’s most coveted night safari is something you can indulge in with your partner to add a little adventure to your honeymoon itinerary! Located only about 30 mins away from properties such as Dao by Dorsett AMTD Singapore, the night safari lets you spend a romantic evening exploring the wilds on a guided tram as you observe some of the best wildlife in southeast Asia. Don’t forget to enjoy a warm meal at the onsite restaurant and take something cuddly as a souvenir for your journey back home!

Catch the light show at Marina Bay Sands

Every evening there is a spectacular light show that illuminates the area surrounding Singapore’s most iconic hotel – Marina Bay Sands. Be sure to catch one of the shows as it is indeed a magical experience and is sure to amp up the romance during your romantic honeymoon getaway!

  

 

 

Are you planning on having another night of Netflix and chilling on the couch with your other half? If you answered ‘yes’ to that, then it’s time to plan a romantic getaway that does not involve cheesy movies and unhealthy snacks. The snow-capped mountains and some dope slopes in Whistler mountains are the perfect destinations to check out!

Explore by floatplane

The best way to discover beautiful Whistler is via floatplane. This unforgettable ride is scary, exciting and memorable for sure. You can capture unparalleled views of the countless lakes and the surrounding landscapes. However, this doesn’t come cheap. You can get a 30 min flight around Whistler for around CAD 200; if you can splurge a bit more, you can enjoy an alpine lake landing with lunch.

Brandywine Falls

You must visit Brandywine Falls when you’re here. It’s located on the outskirts of the main town just 15 mins away from Whistler ski area hotels such as the luxurious Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. The waterfall is amazing on its own but the site is also a stunning lookout spot over the valley below. If you’re on your way to Vancouver or heading to Whistler from that way, you must stop here and take in the scenic views.

Joffre Lakes

Located just outside of Whistler, the Joffre Lakes is a sight to behold with stunning mountain peaks and glistening blue water everywhere your eye meets. This is one of the most popular hiking trails in British Colombia. The hike itself is quite rewarding with scenic views that will take your breath away but the real prize is the three lakes at the end of the main trail surrounded by a beautiful pine forest.

The River of Golden Dreams

The River of Golden Dreams sounds like the perfect honeymoon couple’s destination. You can take a romantic, relaxing kayak ride down the river with your loved one for a unique experience. You can explore the beautiful surroundings with your better half, starting from Alta Lake.

Make sure to explore

The Maldives comprises more than 1200 islands, but less than 200 islands are inhabited. Most islands are occupied by resorts, hotels, and Maldives residences. When you choose the accommodation option of your choice, make sure to explore the surrounding area and discover the unforgettable beauty of the island nation.

Have romantic getaways

This beautiful country is known to be one of the world’s most romantic destinations, and when you visit the Maldives, you can understand why. If you wish to enjoy a romantic dinner with your better half, there are many options to select from, including underwater dining.

Enjoy activities together

When you are on your honeymoon, you can opt for many activities for couples, such as rejuvenating spa treatments, diving, boat rides, romantic dining sessions under the stars, and water sports.

Explore the country

When you choose a world-class resort like OZEN LIFE MAADHOO, you can savour a peaceful getaway on a private beach. You can also visit popular tourist attractions like the Glowing Beach on Vaadhoo Island, Malé, the vibrant capital of the Maldives, and more.

 

A Maldives honeymoon is unique. It can be as exciting or laid-back as you wish. Here are a few insightful pointers to choosing the Maldives as your honeymoon destination!

The luxury properties

The Maldives oozes luxury, especially in its resorts! Before making your decision, you need to go through all the available amenities and services provided by your potential Maldives honeymoon resort and check to see if it’s up to what you expect. Places such as Holiday Inn Kandooma Maldives have several adventurous expeditions included as well, which is likely to make your honeymoon truly unique! Picking a room that overlooks the stunning blue Indian Ocean is ideal, as you can start and begin your day with a full view of the ocean.

Food and drinks

The best part about the Maldives resorts is that they’re often all-inclusive, so you don’t have to really stress about carrying your wallet all over the resort! Although alcohol is looked down upon on the mainland, resorts possess their own license, which allows you to drink as much as you please! Also, the properties have a large variety of food and restaurants to choose from.

Water sports

If you and your partner are into adventurous excursions and need a bit of an adrenaline rush, try your hands at the various water sports available. Whatever ocean-related activity you’re looking forward to, you’re sure to find it in the Maldives! In fact, nearly all resorts have services, which provide exciting water sports opportunities such as kayaking, diving, parasailing, and much more.

Weddings are the result of years and years of hard work, planning, and enthusiasm put together. It is everyone’s ultimate dream to have the perfect wedding. If a dreamy wedding by the sea is what you have in mind, here is a checklist for beach weddings to make it easy for you.

First things first!

If you’re planning a beach wedding, choose a theme that suits a beach vibe. Essentials first, get your wedding rings, vows, outfits, and the guest list ready. The outfits must match the wedding theme, of course! These require much time to finalize, so plan well in advance. Make sure both the bride and groom are on the same page about the final decision to avoid any hassle!

The venue is everything!

A wedding will never look right in the wrong place. If you want the perfect beach wedding in Malaysia, resort such as Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa would be a great option to consider. With the breathtaking ocean views and the summer vibes, along with the right decorations in place, the chosen venue will look out of this world. It is important to make sure to decorate the venue while sticking to your wedding theme.

Wedding Vendors

If the food, music, lighting, and decorations are to be outsourced, find the best and the most reasonably priced vendors for you. The vendors play a major role in a wedding by carrying out their delegated tasks so that you don’t have to worry about it. As a final note, do not forget to adhere to the COVID-19 regulations while planning the wedding and on the wedding day!
