As far as honeymoon destinations go, the idyllic cluster of isles nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean is of special interest. Surrounded by cerulean blue waters, the islands are bordered by soft sandy beaches that are iconic and induce relaxation. While the Republic of Maldives is composed of over one thousand islands, only some of them are inhabited by the locals while Male, the capital of Maldives, is one of the largest islands in the country. Those seeking the iconic Maldivian experience can choose to stay in one of the many Maldives resorts that are housed in over one hundred islands. Therefore, whether one seeks a relaxing holiday experience or an unforgettable honeymoon, resorts such as Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas would scarcely fail to deliver.
From sunset cruises to candle lit dinners on the beach, these resorts excel in creating a romantic environment. However, for couples who wish to explore all that the islands have to offer, numerous activities and sports are available. Many couples find the experience of island hopping rather memorable as they are able to experience the subtle differences in the natural surroundings. For those who wish to explore the wonders of the marine world together, diving, scuba diving and snorkelling are highly sought after. Many find the multitude of species that flit in and out of the coral reefs truly mesmerising while others enjoy the thrill and rush of diving deep to explore an old wreck or even swim with the Manta Rays that migrate at certain times of the year.
When in Maldives, relaxation and rejuvenation is of utmost importance. Therefore, opting for a therapeutic spa treatment will undoubtedly add to the quality of one’s honeymoon as well. Other experiences that one can share with their partner include submarine rides, night fishing and swimming in the clear turquoise waters. Maldives strives to provide their patrons with the utmost privacy possible and this effort combined with its unique distractions available make the Republic a wonderful place to spend one’s honeymoon.
