With an average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year, crystal-clear turquoise lagoons and picturesque white-sand beaches, the idyllic Maldives provides the perfect setting for a luxurious and relaxing honeymoon.
We’ve rounded up our top ten reasons why you should plan a honeymoon to the Maldives:
An Exclusive Destination
Most resorts in the Maldives are located on their own island, offering guests a truly exclusive and intimate setting for their Maldivian honeymoon. Accommodation choices range from convenient on-the-beach villas to elegant overwater bungalows, and for a truly private honeymoon, some resorts offer extravagant private overwater villas reachable only by boat.
Brilliant Variety Of Resorts
The Maldives is well-known for its grand and ultra-luxurious resorts, but the country is also home to secluded eco-resorts and more modestly-priced accommodation.
The Maldives’ atoll structures are formed upon a sharp ridge rising from the ocean and are made of coral reef encircling a lagoon. Be sure to catch an unforgettable view of some of the Maldives’ 1,190 islands during a seaplane transfer from the capital of Malé to your resort.
Incredibly, 99.6% of the Maldives is made up of sea and the excellent surrounding reefs are home to an abundance of marine life. Following a relaxing morning on the beach, divers and snorkellers can take to the water to spot incredible wildlife such as whale sharks, manta rays and sea turtles.
Many resorts in the Maldives offer packages specifically designed for newlyweds and can offer bespoke experiences such as private-dining underwater or romantic sunset champagne cruises for two.
Convenient Destination For Twin-Centre Honeymoons
Many non-direct flights from the UK to the Maldives stop at cities such as Dubai in the UAE or Colombo in Sri Lanka, offering an option for a convenient twin-centre honeymoon.
As an island nation, the Maldives is renowned for the freshness of its seafood and the exceptional variety of international and fusion cuisine. From all-glass underwater restaurants and wine cellars, to sand-floored and open-air eateries with panoramic views, the Maldives has it all.
New Luxury Resorts
The Maldives will welcome an abundance of new hotels throughout 2018 and into early 2019. Hotly anticipated openings include Mӧvenpick Resort & Spa Kuredhivaru Maldives, Emerald Maldives Resort & Spa, Carpe Diem Beach Resort & Spa, the Italian-designed Baglioni Resort Maldives, ultra-luxurious Waldorf Astoria Maldives, LUX* North Malé Atoll, and four-star OBLU SELECT at Sangeli.
Resorts in the Maldives offer a wide range of pioneering spa and wellness treatments that can be personalised to a guest’s specifications and are ideal for de-stressing after organising a wedding.
Hassle-Free Entry For UK Tourists
British nationals can get a tourist visa for up to 30 days on arrival to the Maldives, provided they hold a valid onward or return ticket and enough funds to cover their stay.
