The Maldives, a couples paradise


Featured Destinations

Indian Ocean Maldives

Everything about The Maldives exudes romance, with couples arriving daily to celebrate their honeymoon in paradise or to take time away with their significant other. The Maldives delivers the ultimate romantic holiday with the choice of luxurious villas and secluded retreats to overwater bungalows with private pools and the award-winning spas, incredible sunsets and candlelit dinners in breathtaking locations.

Each island resort is reached by speedboat or seaplane and is blessed with relatively deserted beaches of the softest powder-white sand and is surrounded by shallow, yet brilliant blue lagoons and colourful coral reefs. Below the ocean is a unique world waiting to be discovered, a kaleidoscope of over 900 species of exotic fish, turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales and manta rays - a haven for divers. Exclusive island hideaways with beach or over-water villas and award-winning spas are the perfect honeymoon escapes, see a selection of our top couples resorts below:
