Renowned for its exclusive luxury resorts and superb hospitality, the Maldives is made up of a handful of larger islands, and hundreds of secluded white-sand islets surrounded by vibrant coral reefs and distant sand bars.
Stretching over 800km and found sprinkled through the Indian Ocean some 750km southwest of Sri Lanka, the Maldives offers honeymoon couples the opportunity to indulge, explore, play, and truly unwind in an idyllic and beautiful tropical setting.
With flights from international hubs like Singapore and Dubai, most tourists arrive at Velana international airport, in the capital, Male. Depending on the final destination, they will embark on a connecting flight to a domestic airport or board a seaplane or boat at the airport’s jetty. It’s not uncommon to see whale sharks, dolphins and manta rays as you fly or cruise between islands; what a glorious way to start your journey through married life.
Those couples who choose to honeymoon in the Maldives can expect a romantic adventure filled with tranquillity, sumptuous cuisine, outstanding pampering, fantastic water sports and incredible diving, along with plenty of ways to create your very own personal experience and memories.
All the major luxury brands have a presence in the Maldives, with many resorts located on dreamy private islands. Set about 40 minutes by boat to the south-west of Male, the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is very popular for weddings and honeymoon couples.
With crystal-clear waters and silky sands, Conrad Maldives Rangali Island offers a collection of magnificent contemporary villas and suites, a wide selection of first-class dining and superb facilities.
