Infinity pools built for two, candlelit dinners on the beach and sparkling cerulean seas, it’s little wonder the Maldives is one of the most sought-after honeymoon destinations. From choosing when to visit, to planning what to do when you’re there; follow our guide on how to plan the most unforgettable honeymoon in the Maldives.

Pick your perfect season

If your heart is set on a honeymoon in the Maldives, the first thing to do is decide which season you want to visit. Blessed with balmy temperatures and sun-kissed sands all year round, the Maldives’ weather varies little in heat. It does have a wet season between May and October making rain more likely during this time with June and July the wettest, however divers will love the increased activity of underwater marine life over this period and those on a budget can steal a bargain. Between November and April, high season ensures banner-blue skies with hardly a cloud in sight.

Decide on your dream island and resort

With tropical atolls seemingly scattered across the Indian Ocean, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to picking your honeymoon island in the Maldives. Voted the Most Romantic Resort in Asia, Jumeirah Vittaveli is an idyllic Maldivian retreat and an extraordinary honeymoon destination. Located on Bolifushi Island, part of South Male atoll, the palm-fringed resort, framed by twinkling Indian Ocean creates the most mesmerising backdrop to your honeymoon.

Get (a little bit) active

Plenty of privacy and alone time together is a given, but when you can tear yourselves away from that overwater hammock or shady beachfront cabana it’s time to dive into what makes the Maldives so magical. Beneath the Maldivian islands’ shimmering waters, an underwater world of coral reefs teeming with lionfish and stingray begs to be explored. Snorkel gently across the surface or enjoy a professional PADI diving course to get closer to the action. For something a little more adrenaline-fuelled, try a high-octane watersport, like fly-boarding, jet skiing or parasailing.

Relax and unwind

Wedding planning can be extremely stressful and after the big day it might be time to take a bit of time to look after yourself. Wellness is an integral aspect of any Maldivian escape. And what better way than to slip into serenity together with a couple’s massage at your resort’s spa? Re-energise with wholesome nutritional food or stretch out with some yoga. Finally, no trip to the Maldives would be complete without a gentle bicycle ride around the resort, gently clattering over the oversea tracks.
