The Top 5 Resortsfor a Honeymoon in the Maldives

The Maldives has all the makings for an exceptional honeymoon. It is a place where wide-open spaces become intimate and private, a place where small islands feel large and uncrowded, and a place where island simplicity seamlessly blends with luxury. If you’re newly wed (congratulations!) and deciding on where to go for your honeymoon, look no further than the Maldives. This cluster of islands with soft white sand and lush green jungles in the Indian Ocean is the perfect location for your first trip as a married couple. Here are the top 5 resorts that are virtually built for honeymooners.

1. Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru

Nestled amidst the sapphire sea in the North Malé Atoll, Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru is the first international chain resort in the Maldives and has never ceased to amaze since its inception. This uniquely designed resort resembles a seashell spiral, a theme that can be seen throughout the whole island. Its 48 conch-shaped villas, elegantly designed and hidden among the lush tropical gardens to offer ultimate privacy. This is a great option for honeymooners because each villa is placed on the powdery soft sand, has an uninterrupted panoramic view of the ocean, and a private plunge pool. Their Spa Sanctuary Pool Villa is a honeymooners’ favourite.

2. Six Senses Laamu

Six Senses Laamu is the definition of paradise. This resort is the only resort in the remote Laamu Atoll. Six Senses captivates all senses with the beauty of its pristine surroundings, the songs of the natural world, the smell of the ocean breeze, the taste of delicious food in the resort’s five restaurants, and the touch of luxury. But it goes the extra mile and invigorates the sixth sense with its five-star service that makes you feel right at home. Stay here and experience unparalleled luxury, the resort cares deeply about wellness, which is why you will find nine wellness nests scattered across the island. There are also several dining experiences that put the natural world on display, sparking your sixth sense further.

3. Hurawalhi Island Resort

Hurawalhi handcrafts romance. Like any relationship, it combines serenity with excitement and comfort with adventure, which brings out a certain amount of intimacy between two people. At Hurawalhi you can fill your days with romance as well as with thrilling activities; snorkel in the surrounding coral reef which is bursting with colour, or go on a sunset cruise and spot dolphins who jump out of the water to give you a private show. If that gets too tiring, relax with a spa treatment from the long and extensive spa menu at the resort, or enjoy a meal (or two) at Hurawalhi’s underwater restaurant which is the perfect place to begin your happily ever after.

4. Milaidhoo Island Resort

Milaidhoo Island Resort sees itself as a tropical Garden of Eden of sorts and it’s easy to see why. This resort with only 50 villas is set on an emerald island wrapped by a ribbon of white sand and is set in the turquoise waters of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Ideal for honeymooners, Milaidhoo reinvents luxury, thinking of their guests as story writers crafting their dream rather than mere holiday goers. This luxurious boutique hotel is perfect for a couple of nature lovers who want to fully immerse themselves in the stunning surrounding coral reef where marine life flourishes. They also have a ‘Perfect Honeymoon’ package where they will name a star after you, in addition to a private three-course dinner and a complimentary massage. It certainly is the best place to write your story.

5. Mirihi Island Resort

Being one of the smallest resorts in the Maldives, Mirihi Island Resorts is certainly a gem in the Indian Ocean. In spite of having only 37 villas on a smaller than usual island, Mirihi has a way of making guests feel as though they are on their own private island. The resort is committed to providing peace and tranquillity, which is why they do not offer any motorised water sports, discos, or any sort of nightlife, thus ensuring you have a blissful, serene holiday. At Mirihi you can enjoy personalised service from a team who cares deeply about the little things, making your stay here memorable. Relax on their unspoilt beaches, dive into the blue ocean, and feast like kings and queens to experience relaxation like nowhere else.

Regardless of where you stay in the Maldives, you are guaranteed to have an ultra-romantic and extremely luxurious honeymoon. What’s better than beginning your forever in paradise?
