The 10 Best Resorts for your Maldives Honeymoon

We can see why so many couples opt for a Maldives honeymoon. The Maldives boasts white sand beaches, luxury lagoon villas and a secluded atmosphere that can be hard to find elsewhere. Most resorts in the Maldives are essentially private islands – you’ll feel like you and your partner are all alone in a tropical island paradise.

As if that wasn’t enough, luxury resorts often have honeymoon treats on offer to make your trip even more exceptional. Floating breakfasts, romantic room set-ups and candle-lit dinners on the beach are among the delights you can expect from a Maldives honeymoon package. To make it easier for you to decide, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite resorts for an enchanting Maldives honeymoon. Before you know it, you’ll be sharing Champagne with your special someone whilst looking out over the Indian Ocean.


Amilla Maldives Honeymoon Package

Amilla Maldives is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a carefully selected collection with high levels of luxury service, intimate boutique accommodation and a charming free-spirited ambience unique to smaller independent hotels. This is ideal for couples looking for something a little different in the Maldives. “Amilla Maldives” actually translates into “my island home”, so whether you choose an overwater villa with direct access to the lagoon, or a treetop villa nestled into lush forests, you’ll feel like this is your own personal slice of paradise.

Amilla offers a fabulous honeymoon package, with different benefits depending on the length of your stay. For a stay of four to six nights you’ll get champagne, couples’ yoga, a romantic turndown (think rose petals on the bed) and more. For longer stays of seven nights or more, you will enjoy a surprise excursion and a 3-course dinner on the beach, plus many more charming features. Our personal travel concierges at Destinology can run through the full list with you over the phone if this piques your interest!
