Ideal for those longing to escape the world around them, nothing compares to a Maldives honeymoon when it comes to tranquility, peace, and luxury. Situated in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Africa, the Maldives is an island nation made up of 26 ring-shaped atolls, which in turn comprise over a thousand coral islands.
Why Plan a Maldives Honeymoon?
While its capital, Mahe, is relatively busy, with a fish market, restaurants, shops, and other facilities to be found, many of the Maldives islands are undeveloped, housing only luxury resorts, pristine beaches, and lush jungles.
Needless to say, the unspoilt beauty of this island destination is what makes a Maldives honeymoon so incredible, giving you the chance to leave the world behind you as you begin your new journey together.
Why should you consider a Maldives honeymoon? For starters, here are just a few reasons…
1. The Tranquility
The Maldives is comprised of a number of islands, which in turn make up various atolls. Some are inhabited, many are not. With its lush tropical vegetation, white sandy beaches, warm lagoons, and turquoise waters, many of the islands are home only to luxury resorts. A number of resorts offer accommodation in stilted suites that have been built over the ocean. The result is a sense of complete and utter peace and tranquility.
If you are longing to escape with your love to somewhere that feels far away from everything, this is sure to be the perfect location for your honeymoon, with little else to do besides swimming, sunbathing, spa treatments, scuba diving, snorkelling, reading, relaxing, and perhaps taking an island tour or two.
2. The Diving & Snorkelling
If you do feel up to doing much on your honeymoon, Maldives diving and snorkelling offers some of the best dive sites in the world. Many of the lagoons are ideal for snorkelling, with nearby coral reefs to explore. If you want to head out further beneath the waves of the Indian Ocean, you can organise a resort course or even try a full PADI Open Water dive course. Whale sharks can be found most of the year around, while rays, turtles, and many other fascinating underwater wonders can also be discovered during your dives.
3. The Resorts
Last, but not least, Maldives resorts seem made for honeymoons. The resorts bring to mind picture-perfect scenes of wooden cabins set on stilts, far out into the ocean, accessible only via walkways. Many of these resorts are adult-only, catering exclusively to honeymooners and leisure seekers of 18 years and older. A number offer world-class spa facilities, along with in-room dining, restaurants, dive centres, bars, swimming pools, activity centres, fitness centres, and exceptional service.
Whenever you decide to visit the Maldives, few other destinations have the ability to offer the kind of unspoilt paradise that a Maldives honeymoon provides.
