Quite naturally the Maldives provide the dream setting for legendary experiences. What if you could share this with your loved one by engaging marriage right here on these paradise beaches or spending your honeymoon among the Maldives palm trees. The geographical settings allow for secluded intimate celebrations in beautiful scenery whilst never being far away of your luxury amenities.
However you choose to spend your time, part of the magic is that you may return here and relive the magical moments over and over again.
Do note that wedding packages offered by Maldivian resorts are for "show only" purposes. Marriage ceremonies in the Maldives are not acknowledged by foreign governments and only binding in the Maldives if at least one partner is Maldivian. A legal civil union between foreigners must be instated by legal marriage ceremonies in their own country.
Top 5 reasons for a honeymoon in the Maldives
1. Stay in a beach villa
There is hardly anything more romantic than the gentle surf of the Indian Ocean seaping into your bed chamber.
Waking amidst breathtaking views onto the crystal clear paradise that is the Maldives and private access to the warm turquoise waters for a swim before your private breakfast on your villas patio is an unforgettable experience.
2. Ditch your shoes
Throughout the Maldives accommodations encourage a "No shoes, No news" policy on their premises - lending you a hand in locking out the rest of the world.
Obviously you may wear shoes if you wish to do so. However, once you step onto this island paradise the urge to feel sand between your toes and a cocktail in your hand might get the better of you.
3. Book on Half Board
To fully indulge into your resorts dining menu we recommend to book half board so there will be no surprising food and bar bill at the end of your stay.
Though the choice may be limited on secluded island resorts, the quality is certainly not and you should have other things to worry about than food prices.
4. Multi Centre Honeymoons
The Maldives are quite extreme in terms of secludedness and you may choose to pair it with another destination along your flight path.
Many flight operators will do stop-overs in other popular tourist destinations such as Dubai, Muscat, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Malaysia or Thailand. All of which are treasures on their own accord and a diverse addition to the total relaxation the Maldives have to offer.
5. European Summertime
The european summer including the months of May and September are the perfect choice to visit the Maldives as the high season ranges from October to April.
Honeymoon rates are well affordable during these low and shoulder seasons and the weather is beautiful. You may get an occasional warm shower but not more than during the high season. It is tropical islands after all.
