Since your honeymoon is the first trip you’ll ever take together as newlyweds, it’s bound to be an unforgettable experience no matter where you go. Having said that, it’s still important for your honeymoon destination to be as romantic, luxurious and relaxing as possible, and one place that checks all these boxes is the Maldives.
The little island nation has been voted as one of the world’s most luxurious honeymoon destinations many times over, and its pleasant climate nearly year-round makes it an excellent choice for couples looking to get away from the bustle of everyday life and enjoy some quality time together.
If you’re still on the fence about where you’d like to go for your post-wedding getaway, here are a few reasons the Maldives is the ultimate honeymoon destination.
#1: Privacy and seclusion
The Maldives consists of more than 1000 individual islands and most luxury resorts in the Maldives are tucked away on their very own private islands; without the crowds of holidaymakers that many other popular tourist destinations attract.
This means you’ll have the unique opportunity to spend some alone time together, experience the white sandy beaches and tropical scenery without any disturbances.
#2: Premium Accommodation
If you’re looking for a premium honeymoon destination, the Maldives should be at the top of your list. You can choose to relax in a hammock by the beach, swim in a private infinity pool with a clear view of the ocean or enjoy tennis and golf courts, couple’s spa treatments and private yoga classes. Outdoor excursions may also include sunset boat tours, fishing tours or even snorkelling with sharks and dolphins.
#3: Romantic Activities
Since the Maldives is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, you can expect just about any Maldives honeymoon package to include a range of idyllic honeymoon activities such as candlelit dinners on the beach, relaxing bubble baths, spa treatments and couple’s massages.
Of course, if you happen to get tired of strolling along the beach at sunset or moonlit swims in private plunge pools and are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can also undertake some of the more daring couple’s activities on offer, such as scuba diving or snorkelling, surfing, kayaking and walking tours.
#4: Gourmet Dining
After all the planning and preparation you’ve put into your wedding, cooking and cleaning is the last thing you’ll want to do on your honeymoon. Fortunately, if you’re considering one of the resorts in Maldives for your honeymoon, you can look forward to top-notch food and service.
Staying at a premium resort means you’ll be able to indulge in all your favourite gourmet dishes and fresh seafood, from sushi and grilled fish or prawns to lush tropical fruit platters loaded with pineapple, local bananas, papaya and pomegranate.
The local cuisine is also well worth a try and you can expect to sample dishes like smoked fish in coconut curry sauce, barbecued fish with chilli, deep fried fish rolls and spicy fish cakes.
#5: Breathtaking scenery and diverse marine life
With its perfect white sandy beaches, dreamy palm trees and pristine waters, Maldives is the very definition of a tropical paradise. It’s famous for an unspoiled eco-system and has stunning coral reefs as well as plenty of fascinating marine life, from brightly coloured fish to manta rays, sea turtles, spotted dolphins and whale sharks.
Another thing the Maldives is known for is its bio luminescent plankton which emits a bright blue light at night and causes whole sections of the beach to glow magically in the dark.
A holiday to Club Med Maldives is all-included, and includes accommodation, gourmet meals, an open bar, sports and activities, Kids Clubs for children aged 4-17, and evening entertainment.
