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

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.
