Maldives has always been renowned as the top destination for honeymoon travellers and for romantic getaways. This reputation has certainly been aided and abetted by the peaceful tranquillity that the serene blue green waters and sun kissed white sands of the islands offer.
Made up of an archipelago of over 1,000 islands, half of which are as yet uninhabited, the Maldives is mainly a resort nation. Most resorts occupy an entire island or two and also extend into the clear blue water.
The idyllic surroundings are sure to soothe and calm you, allowing for a relaxing and romantic holiday free from the hustle and bustle of the city. The waters surrounding the islands too are teeming with a rich diversity of sea creatures, corals, wrecks and other intriguing aspects. A chance to catch sight of a school of dolphins or whales is an added attraction when visiting here.
Visitors enjoying a romantic getaway can opt to laze out on the beaches soaking up the sun, cooled by the wind from the swaying palm trees and sipping a refreshing drink or practice yoga with the calming and soothing sounds of crashing waves enveloping you. One can also enjoy a relaxing massage that will calm and rejuvenate, or go out on an expedition exploring the waters by scuba diving, snorkelling, diving or if you are more adventurous, paragliding, surfing or waterskiing.
Whatever relaxation and romantic activity you choose, you can be guaranteed that you will have a wonderful and enjoyable time in the Maldives. For those who wish to take something of the islands back home, there are many curio shops especially in the capital – Male – from which cultural items of interest can be purchased.
For those wondering which one of the Maldives resorts to opt for, choose wisely and think carefully as to what exactly you want from this Maldivian holiday. Maldives spa resorts are sure to be the best bet for those on an intimate holiday as there is nothing that sets the mood better for a romantic evening than a luxurious spa treatment. Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas is such a luxurious spa resort that would be ideal for couples.
