If there is one place in the world to take the most epic honeymoon ever it’s the Maldives. A Maldives honeymoon cannot be topped. Think overwater bungalows, the craziest shades of blue ever, vibrant marine life, and much more.
If a honeymoon is meant to be a celebration of love in an intimate, secluded, and most importantly, beautiful setting, then the Maldives is the world’s best backdrop for all these things. There are endless ways to let the magic of the islands dazzle you on your holiday as a couple.
Some interesting points to cover in Maldives
More than 3,000 coral reefs and crystal-clear waters make the Maldives perfect for a couple who want to dive in with both feet. You also don’t need to be experienced divers to enjoy the spectacular collection of sea life. Ideal locations can be found just minutes from shore or an hour-long boat ride out to sea.
This Indian Ocean archipelago is composed of 26 atolls with 200 inhabited islands. While it may be tempting to make a beeline for the capital, Malé, and park it there for the duration of your trip, know that 80 islands have tourist resorts. Set sail in the Laccadive Sea to try more than one over the course of your trip and seek your personal slice of paradise
Unwind from wedding chaos in one of the resorts’ modern spas infused with traditional touches of therapy. If you like the white sandy beaches leading into the turquoise water, request a sand massage that
count on to soothe aches like Americans count on ibuprofen. Relax with your new life partner for a rubdown with native virgin coconut oil.
The Ithaa underwater aquarium restaurant at the Maldives Rangali Islands resort is available for weddings, but it’s also available for the wedding night. The hotel will convert the restaurant space into a bedroom and then serve a champagne breakfast in the morning. The in-room — or just outside the room — entertainment provided by the inhabitants of the Indian Ocean is included in the package.
Maldives’ history goes back to a 12th-century Sultanate, so don’t forget to explore some of the islands’ rich history together. In the capital of Malé you can hit the National Museum that once housed a sultan, the minarets and tombs of the Old Friday Mosque and the Grand Friday Mosque and Mulee Aage, an ornate pre-World War I palace that now houses the president’s offices.
If you and your new spouse came here to catch some rays, don’t forget the underwater kind. About an hour off Malé, both new and experienced divers can experience a wave of massive mantas coming to feed on plankton at Manta Point. The best time to see these majestic creatures is during the monsoon season from spring to fall.
It just wouldn’t be a Maldives honeymoon without embracing the resorts’ unique ways to give guests as much privacy and super-close ocean as possible. At the Gili Lankanfushi resort in the North Malé Atoll, book a Crusoe Residence with a king-size bed and private sun deck sitting atop the Indian Ocean. Don’t worry, you’re allowed a rowboat to find your way back to the island.
More than 60 charters in the Maldives are dedicated to providing the entire island experience. Stay in luxury accommodations as you float through the sea, pausing every so often to surf or take a dive led by the onboard instructor or explore little-deserted islands. Dine under the stars as the waves lap at the hull, courtesy of your onboard chef.
You’re on honeymoon with your best catch, so indulge in the lifeblood of the Maldives in a way that will make fishing at a tranquil American stream seem forever passé. Hire a speedboat to catch swordfish, marlin and other “big game” fish in the deeper part of the sea in the morning. When the sun goes down, take a night fishing trip to reel in some snappers and barracuda while relishing each other’s company.
Top off that romantic day with a well-lighted submersion in the ocean. The Whale Submarine off Malé can be booked through your resort and descends into the blue for a 45-minute peek at everything from sharks to shipwrecks. If coming from a remote resort, you can make the submarine trip your last excursion before catching your flight home
