Many people consider their wedding day to be one of the most unforgettable moments of their lives, the honeymoon being its highlight. An enjoyable, laidback, and memorable first few days together as a couple. However, deciding on the perfect destination to spend it on is crucial, which could be difficult and exhausting.
A fascinating and can-never-go-wrong option is the Maldives with breathtaking romantic ocean views and luxurious secluded private water villas perfectly ideal for honeymoons and wedding anniversary celebrations. Moreover, the idyllic islands have other exciting activities to offer. From scuba diving with dolphins and whale sharks or snorkelling at shallow reefs near the sandy shores to adventurous recreation like jet skiing, canoeing, paddle boarding, and kite surfing. A pampering massage from their spas – duo massages, flower baths, and facials for couples.
Enjoy a wide array of delectable cuisines, which include Mexican, Italian, and Asian foods. Choose from your preferred meal plan – half to the full board, and all-inclusive. In addition, restaurants have Muslim-friendly menus without alcohol and pork. You will be able to find a variety of Halal meals during your entire stay with nothing to worry about. Most resorts also provide unique dining experiences that are perfect for newlyweds and couples. A floating breakfast while lounging in your private pool or a gourmet picnic on the beach decorated with lanterns and sandy seating! You can further elevate your romantic experience by booking a table in an underwater restaurant where you can dine with a panoramic sea view. And when the sun goes down, choose to feast on a sandbank under the stars, a Michelin-starred private dinner, or savour a romantic dinner on a nearby island complete with a private chef!
