If you’ve been to the Maldives before, it will come as no surprise that it’s one of the best destinations in the world for a honeymoon; if you haven’t had the joy of holidaying here, these insights will help you plan the perfect post-wedding getaway!
The best period for a honeymoon would be the dry season from November to April when the country enjoys abundant sunshine with minimal chances of rain. The clear skies and calm waters provide the perfect setting for beachside bliss though since this is the peak period, make your bookings ahead. That said, don’t discount a holiday in the wet season or off-peak period (May to October); though it may rain, it won’t generally be right through the day, while rates and tourist numbers will be less during this time too.
When it comes to a luxury resort, Maldives offers some amazing options for honeymoons with the chief allure being that they each are on a private island! An ideal choice to consider would be The Residence Maldives Dhigurah offering a palm-fringed tropical paradise where newlyweds can stay at a beach or overwater pool villa; the latter is truly unique since the living spaces lie perched over a lagoon with sunset or sunrise views and direct access to the waters below. At such properties, you can also look forward to some magical moments like those mentioned below.
Newlyweds can indulge in various romantic experiences at the right resort. Not to be missed is a chance to embark on a wellness journey together at a spa that features special options for couples; this can include private treatments with a foot and bath ritual, a Clarins body polisher and deep touch body massage and customised facial. For a change of scenery, you can spot dolphins on a sunset cruise served with a glass of bubbly, visit deserted islands for sublime seclusion, or enjoy a snorkelling adventure.
Another key attraction here for couples is the various options for private dining in Maldives with enchanting backdrops and locations as well as delectable courses and gourmet treats on offer. One of the best choices would be to have dinner on a castaway island where a chef will curate a meal for you under star-filled skies. The ideal resort will also offer dining at the beach surrounded by ocean serenades, your private villa amidst candlelight or a tropical setting of lush greenery overlooking the water.
