Maldives honeymoons made for you

The word ‘paradise’ can be overused, but the Maldives certainly warrants the title – so where better to go on your honeymoon? This collection of 1,200 islands is famous for its clear-as-could-be waters, white-sand beaches and jaw-dropping snorkelling. Anchored in the Indian Ocean, these remote isles are only accessible by speedboat or seaplane, so life here is as peaceful as it gets. If you want to feel like you’ve escaped to your very own desert island, then a honeymoon to the Maldives is a must. 

The Maldives is famed for its unrivalled luxury and romance. Their model of one-resort-per-island means the beaches are quiet, the pools are peaceful, and you won’t have any trouble getting a table for dinner. And, wherever you choose to stay, you can look forward to thoughtful touches like bubbly on arrival, therapeutic spa treatments for two, and private dining on the beach. And then, of course, there are the rooms. If you’re considering a honeymoon to the Maldives, you’re probably imagining a stay in a beautiful overwater villa. Perched on stilts above the turquoise Indian Ocean, these secluded nests offer a private retreat for newlyweds. Often equipped with hot tubs or plunge pools, along with steps straight down into the ocean, an overwater villa is a key ingredient of any Maldives honeymoon. You’ll fall asleep to the sounds of the water gently lapping below, and wake up to the sight of the bright blue sea.

You could be forgiven for never wanting to leave your villa but, when you do, you’ll find that there are endless activities in the Maldives. Don a snorkel and mask and discover the colourful corals and exotic fish, or go further afield on a diving day trip. Hop in a glass-bottomed kayak and paddle across the lagoon. Or, if you’re a pair of adrenaline junkies, try water-skiing or parasailing. After a busy day exploring the Maldives’ natural wonders, you can unwind on the beach with a fruity cocktail or watch the sunset from your decking. However you want to spend your honeymoon in the Maldives, our travel experts will tailor your trip specifically to you.

Romantic retreats

Maldives honeymoons are synonymous with idyllic islands and picture-perfect beaches. But the luxury accommodation is just as iconic. Most islands have just one resort, so you can choose precisely which one is best for you. Whether you’re looking for a five-star base with just a handful of villas, or an all-inclusive resort with lots of restaurants and activities, our experts will help you find the perfect spot.

Book a beach villa for touches like a large sunny terrace, a private outdoor bathroom and sweeping views of the sands. Or, if you want to be even closer to the ocean, opt for an overwater villa. You can walk down the steps straight into the sea, enjoy a soak in your hot tub, and sip cocktails on your balcony. Back on the island, you’ll find the resort’s fantastic restaurants and sleek bars. Most places offer private dining on the beach if you want an extra special treat, while other resorts even have an underwater restaurant.

Activities for two

You could spend your entire Maldives honeymoon lying on the pure-white sands – and who could blame you? But, beyond the beaches, you’ll find plenty of things to do here. The snorkelling and diving opportunities are among the best in the world. The Maldives’ waters are filled with coral reefs and diverse marine life, including tropical fish, turtles, rays, dolphins, and even whale sharks. And you don’t have to stick to one island, either. Go on a boat trip and discover uninhabited islets and remote sand bars, where you can swim, sunbathe and enjoy a romantic picnic. There are lots of watersports on offer too, ranging from gentle kayaking and paddle-boarding, to heart-racing kitesurfing and jet-skiing.

And that’s not all. Several resorts have their own activity programmes. Join a sunrise yoga class on the beach, and learn how to make delicious dishes at a Maldivian cooking class. Or round off a day in the sun with a cocktail-making session in the bar.

Multi-centre honeymoons

A honeymoon gives you the chance to celebrate your marriage and unwind after months of wedding planning. So why not go all out and visit more than one destination? If you’re thinking about a Maldives honeymoon, consider adding on a second – or even a third – stop.

You could embark on an exciting week-long tour of Sri Lanka’s temples and wildlife, before retreating to the Maldives for a laidback week on the beach. Or, if you want to include a city break, you could stop off in the Middle East on your way to the Maldives. Enjoy a few days in glittering Dubai, where you’ll find luxurious hotels, soaring skyscrapers and classy rooftop bars. Or spend some time exploring Abu Dhabi’s traditional souks and grand architecture. When you’ve had your fill of bustling city life, the Maldives’ tranquil islands will be waiting for you.

Best time to visit the Maldives

There’s never a bad time for a Maldives honeymoon. Although there are two seasons – dry and wet – both have their benefits. So, when you’re deciding which month to go, it’s best to think about how you want to spend your time.

The dry season runs from December to April. This is the most popular time to go to the Maldives, because the conditions are perfect for sunbathing and snorkelling – temperatures hover in the high-twenties, humidity levels are lower, and it barely rains. But, as you might expect, prices are often higher at this time of year.

Alternatively, book your Maldives honeymoon for the wet season. Running from May to November, the wet season sees heavy downpours – but it’s unlikely to rain every day, or even all day. And it remains hot at this time of year, with temperatures averaging 28oC. Although visibility is slightly lower in the wet season, you can still look forward to great snorkelling and diving. Plus, whale sharks and manta rays are more common during May and November, so you’ll have a higher chance of seeing them if you visit the Maldives at this time of year.
