The Maldives islands are home to some of the very best scuba diving in the world. Even if you’re not a diver, snorkelling in the warm waters offers wonderful opportunities to spot a wide variety of marine life. Some resorts have their own diving schools, whilst others have their own reefs and you may even see whale sharks.
The romantic Maldives is paradise for lovestruck couples and honeymooning newlyweds.
Warm sunshine, sapphire waters and golden sands are in abundance in this sensationally stunning part of the world.
With one of the most relaxed vibes anywhere on Earth, it’s obvious why this is such a popular place for lovestruck couples and honeymooning newlyweds. This collection of coral islands in the Indian Ocean makes for a secluded and unforgettable holiday. Diving, swimming and all-round relaxing are the order of the day. Specialised trips such as dolphin cruises can put a unique stamp on an already fantastic break.
With a wonderful culture of exquisite cuisine, the Maldives offers culinary experiences like no other destination. The seafood is simply to die for, and the range of exotic spices and pungent herbs all add beautiful flavour to tease any palette.
With so many truly luxurious romantic Maldives resorts to choose from, it’s hard to pick a favourite, but here are two that we particularly like:
As far as accommodation goes, many of the islands boast private properties. These are particularly popular with those looking to spend a romantic break in each other’s company. One such property is the Anantara Kihavah on Baa Atoll. It’s as secluded as you could ever wish a holiday home to be. The Anantara is ideal for honeymoons and romantic luxury holidays, with its breathtaking views and stunning private infinity pools. The rooms are divine as well, all sunken baths and stunning Thai silk furnishings. With complimentary iPod docks wired up to Bose sound systems, there is also the option to set the mood with your own personal music collection.
Another option is the Soneva Fushi resort. The Soneva Fushi prides itself on its dedication to the natural surroundings which it lies in. Built and maintained using sustainable materials, the environmentally friendly Soneva is a collection of villas with private pools. It features relaxing facilities such as a Six Senses Spa while its selection of four beautiful eateries will satisfy any appetite. The magic of a stay at the Soneva Fushi resort begins before you even arrive. A chartered sea plane shuttles you to the resort from Maleand provides stunning panoramic views of the Maldives.
For those couples who like a little more excitement alongside the romance and relaxation of the Maldives, there are also plenty of activities that can be enjoyed. Windsurfing, diving and sailing are all on offer.
There’s no question that the Maldives is tailor made for lovers and honeymooners to enjoy the most romantic and unforgettable of breaks in this stunning collection of islands.
