How to Spend the Perfect Honeymoon in the Maldives

The Maldives top all of the honeymoon destination lists, but simply going there doesn’t automatically guarantee an amazing honeymoon! So what should you do to ensure that your dream holiday is actually the dream you had hoped for? Follow our 5-step guide and you won’t go wrong!

Velassaru Maldives hotel

Standards of hotels in the Maldives vary. There are islands next to Male with so many hotels on one island that some of them don't even have direct access to the beach. So, if you want to have a really memorable honeymoon, search for the “one island-one hotel” concept. There are hundreds of hotels like this in the Maldives, designed to suit different budgets and different types of travellers - but they all provide absolute privacy since only hotel guests are on the island.

There are hotels with football pitches but this probably isn’t what you want for your honeymoon, right? Instead, search for a boutique hotel with a maximum of 100 villas and you will be rewarded with absolute peace and tranquillity.

Maldivian airways

Some of the hotels are located far from the airport and require up to a one-hour flight to get there. Yes, this makes the trip more expensive (it could add around $1,000 for two people return) but this will be one of the most glorious parts of your journey. Flying low in a seaplane with a barefoot captain over a myriad of tiny, white sand islands surrounded by turquoise water is something you will never forget.

Yes, beach villas are fantastic too but the water villas are so unique! You only find them in a few places in the world and the Maldivians know how to build very special water villas with glass floors and total privacy, so you can sleep on the terrace under thousands of stars and swim naked in the morning after taking just two steps from your bed.

Hotels in the Maldives sure know how to make a couple feel pampered. Each hotel offers a tailored package for honeymooners. Dinners on a platform in the ocean (you will be served food from a dhoni that comes to your platform from the shore), a spa for two under the stars on a nearby island, a sunset cruise with live music just for the two of you (and the playful dolphins!)… There are so many ways to make your holiday special!

I’ve been travelling ever since a was a child but my first large trip was at the age of 13 when I was sent to live for a couple months to London. This trip has changed me and ever since I just want to see more and more of our beautiful world. Every trip gives me new emotions, charge and strength to keep going further.
