The Maldives, a group of islands speckling the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, almost seems to have been created as a romantic getaway destination. Where you would usually call a cab, in the Maldives you would order a seaplane or take a boat. High heels have no place here, everybody on holiday should kick back in a pair of comfortable flip flops. Whatever qualifies as beachwear, including plenty of sunscreen, is all you really need out here.
If it is your honeymoon, start by selecting the perfect Maldives resort for you. Many luxury hotels cater specially to newlyweds, with honeymoon packages tailored to deliver lifelong memories. Anantara Veli, Maldives boasts a cluster of over water bungalows, which provide an intimate ambience that is perfect for honeymooners. Whether you choose to spend your special vacation with your feet up, sipping a drink or creating your very own island adventure; speak to the hotel’s concierge who is there to help you get the most out of your stay.
The best time to visit the Maldives is between the months of December and April, when the best of the tropical weather rolls in. A breath taking sunset makes an ideal backdrop for a barefooted stroll along the beach followed by a moonlit dinner under a canopy of stars; is bound to delight any couple embarking on their new life together. Those with a more adventurous side, will not be disappointed either: coral reefs, exotic fish and other underwater delights lie in wait for those who wish to take a boating or diving excursion. If you gather up enough courage, you may even want to pencil in a day to go swimming with sharks! If you are looking to stretch your legs, see the sights, soak up some culture and even do some shopping; visit some of the other islands, the local fish market promises a unique experience.
