With its white sandy beaches, crystal clear, azure blue waters and incredible night skies, is it any wonder that the Maldives is one of the most desired honeymoon destinations in the world? Many harbour dreams of topping up their tans along one of its many beautiful beaches in the infancy of their marriage. Luckily, the Maldives isn’t as expensive as it once was. We have put together 3 reasons as to why you will fall in love with a honeymoon in the Maldives.
You love to let someone else take control
Your honeymoon is one of the most important breaks you can have. After the endless planning and organising of your wedding, it’s time to relax and forget about the lists and worries that accompany your big day. The Maldives is a place where other people do all the hard work for you, leaving you to concentrate on the important things such as which cocktail to buy and when to take a dip in the pool. You will find hotel staff, beach bar waiters, masseuses and just about any other service you can think of at your beck and call, allowing you to kick back and relax.
We recommend Jumeirah’s honeymoon packages, which aims to pamper and indulge you in your opening days as a married couple. Their packages include a four-course candlelit dinner on the beach, with an ice-cold bottle of champagne as well as speedboat transfers, massages and cake! What better way to enjoy the company of your newly married partner.
You would love to live on the water
The Maldives has an incredible choice of water villas that perch just above sea level, offering amazing views across the turquoise waters. These villas offer you the opportunity to be as close to the sea as you possibly can, without actually being in it. However, if you ever feel the need to cool off, simply dive right in from your veranda. To wake up next to the ocean truly is a once in a lifetime experience and should be experienced by everyone visiting the Maldives!
You want to see the most incredible natural illuminations in the world
One of the most incredible sights is the illumination of the beach on Mudhdhoo Island. Blue lights align the edge of the sea and the beaches, creating a magical visceral experience. The source of the lights are microscopic organisms that emit light as they come into contact with changing temperatures or stresses, such as the water’s edge. Make sure you bring your camera along to see this display of blue firelights, in this picturesque part of the world.
Overall the Maldives is an incredible, unforgettable honeymoon location which will help wash away all the stresses of planning your wedding. With an incredible amount of things to see and experience, you won’t be short of ways to relax in what can only be described as paradise.
