“Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!”, says Ewan McGregor’s character in the movie Moulin Rouge; while that may be true, after all the planning and stress that can go into holding a wedding, love also needs a well earned break! The Maldives is perfect as a honeymoon destination and if you and your partner are on the lookout for a getaway where you can enjoy some much needed “alone time” as well as some island adventures, then this is the place for you. Of course the choices are seemingly endless when it comes to Maldives resort options. Velassaru Maldives which offers an enchanting island hideaway is well worth considering.
So the first thing to get sorted after you have selected your very own island getaway is the accommodation. The two main options here are beachside or over water villas or bungalows, each providing their own unique charm. Wake up to the sight of the sun stretching its rays across the beach, head down to the lagoon directly below your villa for a spur of the moment swim or fall asleep to the hypnotic sound of the sea, singing you a lullaby of love.
Of course though the rooms may be your intimate abode for the duration of your stay, there is much more romance to be enjoyed outside as well. For that total seclusion you can organise a trip to a deserted island where you can have a quiet picnic on the beach, just the two of you. Sweep your loved one off his or her feet and take a sunset cruise which will let you enjoy the breathtaking sight of the sun slipping below the horizon, painting the sky in fiery hues, as you sip champagne and soak in the moment. Back on dry land, surprise that special someone even more with dinner on the beach, as you dine under the stars and the wind picks up whispered sweet nothings and promise of love eternal.
