OVERVIEW

The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator. There are 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls, 202 islands are inhabited, 100 are exclusive luxury island resorts. Many of these islands offer a serene paradise, making it a perfect destination for a honeymoon.

This part of the world is simply paradise. The Maldives is a desert-island dream where tiny islands are scattered like jewels across the ocean, each surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and diamond white sands. The perfect honeymoon and diving location, you’ll find resorts that exude romance and have a choice of luxurious villas, from retreats with a private stretch of beach to over-water hideaways with their own private infinity pool.

Turquoise lagoons, white sandy beaches and over-water villas are dotted throughout the dreamlike honeymoon destination, known as the Maldives. Island resorts offer honeymooners total relaxation and privacy. The Maldives is one of the most romantic locations in the world.

Choose an over-water villa, Beach villa or romantic honeymoon suite … the choice really is yours.

A flight from the U.K to the capital Malé will take 10 and a half hours, an indirect service may take longer. Once arriving in Malé guests either take a seaplane or speed boat to their luxury island resort.

A range of luxury resorts dotted around the Maldives offer anything from Bed & Breakfast to A lá Carte all inclusive, the choice is yours. Food and Drinks are often charged in dollars; meaning half/full board and all-inclusive sometimes work out cheaper.
