5 Reasons Why the Maldives is the Ultimate Honeymoon Destination - Top 5 Reasons the Maldives is the Ideal Honeymoon Hub

Tipped to be one of the world's top honeymoon hotspots, the Maldives pulls out all the stops to create a paradise holiday hub for newlyweds. Here are 5 reasons why there's no better location for your first holiday as husband and wife than this captivating archipelago.


Picture-Perfect Beaches

As the main reason why most travellers head to the Maldives in the first place, the beauty of Maldives' white, sandy beaches cannot be overstated. The powdery texture of the sand contrasts majestically with the turquoise hue of the shallow waters in this paradise archipelago of more than a thousand islands. The sheer volume of pristine beaches in the Maldives not only makes it difficult to list the best beaches in the country but nearly impossible as there are just too many emerald islands bordered by the ocean. Secluded and tranquil, honeymooners will also find that unlike the beaches in neighbouring Sri Lanka or even Thailand, Maldivian beaches are not littered with buildings, restaurants and beach bars but are mostly free from structures apart from luxury water villas.


Private and Intimate Wedding Celebrations

The country's reputation as a destination wedding hotspot should also recommend the Maldives to honeymooners as it is quite literally the best place to tie the knot. Beach weddings are organized throughout the year in the Maldives with ceremonies held in underwater chapels, on sandy beaches and even in resort ballrooms. Those who are lucky enough to say "I Do" in the Maldives also opt to honeymoon on the islands as it makes little sense to travel outside of paradise after the wedding.


Privacy & Luxurious Island Living

The luxuries available in Maldives water villa resorts and the accommodation set up of the Maldives should also appeal to honeymooners as nowhere else are entire islands occupied by five-star resorts. Whether it's the Reethi Faru Resort or any other property, Maldivian resorts take up entire islands and offer luxurious accommodation options in overwater villas, Jacuzzi villas, beach houses and pool villas for holidaymakers. No other beach capital offers honeymooners the chance to stay amid the ocean itself in a private hideaway.


Luxurious Spas

Considered one of Asia's top spa retreat hotspots, the large number of exclusive spa facilities alone should entice honeymooners to head down to the Maldives. Nearly every major resort contains its own luxury spa facility where couples can not only enjoy traditional massages and aromatherapy sessions but also indulge in world-class healing and beauty treatments. Maldivian spas not only provide Balinese, Swedish and Thai spa therapies but also the more locally popular Ayurvedic spa treatments.


Stunning Ocean Adventures

Couples honeymooning in the Maldives can look forward to enjoying sunset cruises and dolphin watching safaris during their getaway while more active newlyweds can sign up for an array of water sports adventures. Whether it's surfing, banana boating, water skiing or windsurfing, the water-bound activities in the Maldives are limitless. Scuba diving and snorkelling tours are also a must for couples with a passion for marine life and coral reefs.
