We all know that the face of the Maldives belongs to romantic escapes and travelers in love. While we’ve proven that the Maldives is more than just a romantic destination, the fact of the matter is that … it’s still true.
There’s a reason why the Maldives is generally known to be a honeymoon destination, and it isn’t just the serene and calming blue seas, or intimate secret locations like cabanas facing the ocean and towers overlooking majestic sunsets.
The country is a gem of our planet, yes, but resorts in the Maldives go the extra mile to create an atmosphere that will, frankly, make you fall in love. Here’s how they do it.
First impressions are often a defining factor of how good your vacation is, but resorts in the Maldives have that under control, especially for traveling couples. No matter what the celebration, whether a honeymoon or anniversary, lovebirds can enjoy the occasion with special amenities upon arrival, such as a complementary bottle of wine, or special sweet or savoury treats.
Other romantic set ups couples can look forward to include bed décor – complete with flower petals, towels shaped into animals or hearts, and customizable depending on the occasion – and elegant bath set ups to give you and your loved one’s stay that elevated touch of intimacy.
Moving onto dining experiences, foodies in particular can book a really special treat with resorts’ private dining options, where couples can settle into delicious meals in the comfort and privacy of their selected locations. Usually, these dinners are held right on the white sand beaches by the ocean; in the comforts and privacy of your own villa; on a jetty overlooking the sunset; or perched atop a tower with the view of the island below.
If lounging on soft white sands in paradise and enjoying cocktails with your partner just isn’t enough, you’re in luck! Many resorts have plenty of couple’s packages and activities to add that splash of fun into your trip. From couple’s diving packages all the way to underwater proposals, there’s no limit to the adventures you and your loved one can have in the Maldives.
Snorkeling and exploring the clear waters and marine life of the Maldives’ lagoons and reefs are readily accessible at various resorts, who offer complementary access to snorkeling gear and equipment.
Some pairs like to take care of their wellness together, and the Maldives is the perfect place for it. Next to the sound of soothing waves, you can participate in couple’s yoga at sunrise or sunset, or atop standup paddleboards for some fun on the water.
For the more adventurous pairs, many resorts offer castaway island excursions to get a taste of true “island life”, parasailing, jet ski excursions, catamaran sailing, and more. Both partners really have a chance to access their inner adventurer and explore the seas and all the tropical adventures on offer.
There’s no better way to end a day in paradise with a simple but elegant leisurely Sunset Cruise. Some resorts will prepare a way for you to cruise in the water while watching the sunset but in or out of the water, it’s a pretty remarkable moment with your loved one.
So, the next time someone says the Maldives is made for the lovers, you better believe it. If there’s somewhere in the world to celebrate or rekindle romance, it’s here.
