The Maldives consists of over one thousand islands of which, one hundred are occupied by resorts. Each resort has its very own private island. This is where you come for an indulgent, once in a lifetime vacation. The island cluster is an ideal destination, tailor made for couples seeking a scenic background to their romance. Book a private over water pavilion with a balcony at a Maldives resort from where you will be able to take in a breathtaking sunset, while sipping a cocktail.
Revel in the luxury provided by personal butlers, pillow menus and private lap pools. Another way to enjoy your private getaway is to choose from the many spa facilities on offer at the islands. A pampering session that relaxes and rejuvenates you but comes with a backdrop of rolling waves and a tropical breeze is bound to be irresistible. Hotels like the Maafushivaru Maldives are geared for making spa getaways for couples perfect. As it is a honeymoon destination that is getting increasingly popular, a range of therapies designed especially for couples is also available at many hotel spas.
There is no better way to enjoy the tropics than with a beach barbeque, made with a fire of coconut husks and food finished with traditional Maldivian flavours. Couple it with a candlelit dinner for two on the beach, under a canopy of twinkling stars and you have the perfect end to a day by the sea. Given that the Maldives has more desert islands than any others, it is possible to arrange a day trip to one of them and not see a soul for several hours. Pack a picnic, look out on some of the most picturesque vistas and enjoy the company of your significant other tucked away from the rest of the world.
