Congratulations! You found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you’ve gotten engaged, and now the real fun begins — planning your wedding!
I’m sure you must have spent months planning your dream wedding. Right from the venue to the clothes, from the flower arrangements to the caterers, you want to make sure everything is just perfect. Not only that, you have to plan your first holiday together as a married couple and, to some, that might seem even more challenging than the wedding!
But fret not. We’ve a great suggestion for you. How about Maldives for your honeymoon?
Ask anyone where is the perfect honeymoon destination and you can be sure the Maldives will pop up pretty often. As one of the undefeated champions when it comes to honeymoon destinations, Maldives unparalleled beauty is thanks to its white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, floating villas and blue lagoons.
This paradise on earth is perfect for couples looking forward to a laid back and relaxing vacation, much deserved after the hectic wedding preparations. I absolutely love how we can walk metres out toward the ocean and I find myself only knee deep in the waters!
This paradise-of-a-country is 99% water and only 1% land, made up of 1200 islands out of which only 200 of which are inhabited, and many thriving coral reefs. The ocean is a brighter turquoise blue than anywhere in the world, and the overwater resorts take luxury to a whole new level.
Planning a trip to the Maldives can be a little overwhelming at first. There are more than 200 resorts to choose from, and they all cater to a different traveller, with a different budget.
Each resort has different things to offer: some are better for divers, some are better for surfers, some have better food, some have better overwater bungalows, etc, etc.
In fact, in Maldives, you can choose to stay on luxury resort islands, where the entire island is solely occupied by a resort.
So, whether you’re looking for a private island beach vacation, a resort you never have to leave, or a relaxing spot to base from, for a more adventurous honeymoon, I guarantee that if you stay at any of these dreamy properties, you’re going to have the honeymoon of your dreams.
