In a very short time span the Maldives islands have become synonymous with luxury vacations and are one of the most dreamt about travel destinations in the world, and for good reason too.

The Beaches

There are hardly any places in the world that offer beaches that match up to the Maldives. The islands of the atolls that form this nation have beaches composed of powdery sands with waters that are a pristine transparent turquoise.

Over-Water Villas

The opportunity to reside in luxurious abodes situated above ocean waters is something that was pioneered in this nation. Nowadays, any given Maldives hotel would have their own unique over-water villas to choose from, with options such as Kandolhu Maldives.

Private Islands

What is more romantic than having an entire pristine tropical island to you and your significant other? In the Maldives, there are many uninhabited islands to choose from. Your resort can arrange everything from transportation to a personalised picnic basket to make your experience unforgettable.

Glowing Beaches

The bioluminescent beaches of the Maldives have become legendary. Walking side by side with your partner along a beach that is illuminated by the ambient glow of neon ocean water is definitely something out of a dreamscape.

The deep blue sea and the silky beaches are uniquely connected to Maldives, a destination much favoured by honeymooners. But the treasure trove that lies in this dreamy destination is richer and deeper. The cluster of beautiful islands, which comes into view as you land in the Maldives, is the first hint. The islands add much glamour to the destination, especially as it is spread across the huge swathe of Indian Ocean.

Before setting off to explore the rich treasure trove, you need to find proper accommodation. Since it is a tourist hotspot, the Maldives luxury resorts are not hard to find. However, the best option is if you book a resort like Adaaran Prestige Vadoo in advance lest they will be fully booked.
Once settled down in the resort of your choice, you can take time to organise a day trip in the capital, Male. There is an old palace, which has been converted into a museum. The museum is home to a good number of interesting archaeological findings. If you are looking for a souvenir-like item, there are shops open until around 11 pm.
Male is a highly populated city where you can observe the common Maldivian lifestyle. The capital lies with skyscrapers along the narrow street in sharp contrast to the idyllic atmosphere surrounding a private island.
When you do not have anything fixed on your holiday schedule, exploit that free time to enjoy the scenery. The Maldivian sky is so enchanting, and you will find yourself looking forward to evening to settle in. The blue sky turns out to be a magnificent combination with crystal white beaches and deep blue waters glistening as dusk dawns slowly.
Look for underwater adventures as well. Maldives made history with its former President having a cabinet meeting underwater in a bid to address the climate change. Underwater adventure is among other favourite water sports such as surfing and snorkelling. Even if you have no idea about snorkelling, do not ever worry. There are courses that you can take up for learning the much-adored water sport.

As one of the world’s top honeymoon destinations Praslin Island offers newlyweds a pristine piece of paradise all to themselves. Littered with Seychelles honeymoon resorts and hotels including the likes of Berjaya Praslin Resort and countless others, honeymooners are spoiled for choice when it comes to holiday packages in Praslin. Less than 29 miles from Mahé the island is the second biggest island in the country in both scale and populace. Lined with verdant valleys and forests of palm the island is a tranquil alternative to the more tourist congested Mahé.

Renowned for its white, sandy beaches and stunning coastlines couples can expect to find a beach holiday destination ideal for their first vacation as a married couple. The island’s most popular beaches include Anse Lazio which is frequently dubbed ‘The best beach in the world’ by many a travel publication and poll. Ideal for swimming activities, the granite boulder laden beach is also home to two scenic coves and serves as one of the best snorkelling destinations in the Seychelles. The beach is especially breathtaking at first light. The beach, however, is not all there is to marvel at when in Praslin as the iconic Vallée de Mai, the globe’s most extensive coco de mer forest and World Heritage Site, is also found here. The forest is perhaps best known as the leafy home of all six endemic species of palm trees in the Seychelles.

As an island which attracts many an artist, culturally inclined couples can also explore the many art spaces and galleries occupying the island including Galerie Passerose. The Cap Samy Art Gallery commands a captivating location 300m above sea level on a hillside location. Honeymooners can also venture inland to visit the biggest human settlement in Praslin named Grand Anse where local restaurants and other recreational facilities are found. The country’s national bird, the black parrot is also frequently spotted here, especially close to the Church of St. Matthew and its vicinity.
