After a wonderful wedding, you and your loved one need a place where you can completely enjoy each other’s company. If you want to have a taste of the island life at its most beautiful and relaxed – Maldives is the answer.
To further persuade you to visit this stunning haven, below are wise reasons why you should choose the Maldives for your honeymoon.
1. Pristine Beaches
Relive your romance by taking a long walk along pristine white beaches. Imagine staying at a 5-star hotel in the Maldives, laying on the white sands with your spouse, and taking a dip in crystal clear waters in a paradise-perfect island.
Newlyweds can also go barefoot and spend an entire day at the waterfront basking under the sun and reveling in the beauty of the island. With much of the region still undiscovered by mainstream travelers, the Maldives offer a wonderful day and night vista at the water’s edge.
2. Peaceful and Relaxing Romance
Thousands of miles away from the bustle of the city, Maldives is the perfect getaway for new couples who want to escape from the stress of urban life.
Luxury wellness services are increasingly becoming in demand in hotel spas around the world, and more so in these islands. As such, newlyweds can bond by getting a massage and spa treatment together. It will feel like you have the island all to yourself because of its solitary nature.
3. Underwater Adventure
The Maldives isn’t just a place for a romantic honeymoon. There are water activities like scuba diving, scooter diving and snorkeling which can be quite a rewarding experience for you and your partner. You can even catch a glimpse of dolphins, whales and so many other magnificent underwater wildlife.
It’s amazing to sail the waters in the Maldives as the reef-sheltered bays are clear and calm. You can climb onto the roof of a Dhoni while enjoying the beauty of the sea. Ride a boat to circle the islands and stay for a while to gaze over the beautiful sunset.
5. Sandbank Dining
Sandbanks are the pure white sand remote islands of Maldives. You can request your hotel to arrange a private dinner or picnic for you and your spouse in a remote island. If you plan to experience sandbank dining, make sure to consider the time of year due to the islands’ tide patterns.
6. Sky View
You can get enchanted by the islands of the Maldives aboard a seaplane. During the trip, you’ll come across the panoramic view of fishing villages, schools of dolphins, and many more. It would be like flying while appreciating the beauty of nature.
When is the Best Time to Visit the Maldives?
Any time between the months of November and April is the best time to go to the Maldives. Avoid having your honeymoon from August to October as tropical cyclones visit the islands. Don’t worry if it’s a last minute honeymoon; you simply have to book a flight since the Maldives doesn’t require tourists to have entry clearance visas.
Some tips you can follow to enjoy a wonderful honeymoon in the Maldives include:
- Bring plenty of sunscreen.
- Include scarves and sarong in your luggage as the Maldives is a Muslim country and you’ll need to cover yourself before entering a religious shrine.
- Invest in a waterproof camera as you’ll be indulging in several water activities such as scuba diving and snorkeling. But if you don’t want to worry too much about good photos, a professional photographer can capture every moment on your behalf.
- Don’t bring alcohol as there’s a ban imposed by the government of Maldives.
If you want to have an unforgettable honeymoon experience, book your stay in one of the best resort hotels in the Maldives, JA Manafaru. You will surely enjoy your intimate celebration set against a backdrop of stunning views, serenaded by the sound of waves.
Without the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist crowd, you and your partner can truly experience the beauty of Maldives. It’s not just about the wonders of the islands, it’s more on how both of you can enjoy undisturbed company on your honeymoon.
