Comprising of 26 natural atolls, Maldives has channels of dual islands with a beautiful scenic backdrop and beautiful palm trees. Encircled by lagoons blessed with crystal clear waters, Maldives is an unusual holiday destination with a lot of beautiful accommodation options from plush resorts to beautiful guesthouses, the Maldives has just the perfect setting for honeymooners and couples. Offering much more than the sand, the sun and the water Maldives is also about the rich culture and heritage. One can explore the island villages, heritage sites, and local handicrafts while experiencing the serenity of the island.
I don’t think anywhere quite compares with the sheer beauty of Maldives. The abundance of atolls jutting out of deep blue waters is overwhelming. While flying in from Male, we saw on paradise after another. The islands are so small, they have to build bungalows over the water. And the water is so shallow, that the resorts stand high amidst the shallow waters. These islands are sitting on underwater plateaus and felt like they were just waiting for us to come and expereince the charm.
Moreover, we wanted a relaxing trip where we can just sit around the beach on an isolated island and sip in our cocktails. Also, we wanted to experience the stay in a water villa. From the hospitality of the Adaaran Resort to our stay, everything was astounding. We were excellently served and assisted by the staff. Here is what all made our Maldives travel experience even better.

Weather In Maldives
It was the season of rainfall in Maldives. We experienced light rainfall on the island but as the islands are so low-lying, rain clouds blow over very quickly so the rain was only short lived. But the weather became wonderful after rain. The beautiful island, pleasant weather, crystal clear waters and the company of my husband made for the perfect honeymoon and it felt like the best month to visit Maldives.
Here Is All That We Experienced During Our Maldives Honeymoon
Our holiday in Maldives was all about fun, frolic, and romance. From scenic boat rides to romantic sunsets here is a glimpse into all the experiences we enjoyed together.
1. Adreen Club Rannalhi: Experiencing An Exquisite Stay
We stayed at the smallest of Adaaran chain that is the Adaaran Club Rannalhi. The property was breathtaking. The club is located in south Male which is known for its rare and preserved water wildlife. We were lucky to have spotted Manta ray and shark too during our stay. We stayed 1 night at the water villa and 3 nights in the beach bungalow. With an over the water villa, you can jump right into the waters and snorkel or swim. With a private deck, it’s perfect for sunbathing, swimming and pure relaxation. Our Maldives travel experience was totally enhanced.
2. Relaxation And Rejuvenation
With so much to explore and experience, we decided to begin our holiday with pampering our body and mind with a couple of massage. The luxurious spa meet the standards of the lavish resort. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, this seafront facing spa lets you dive in a deeper bliss. The Balinese spa experience reflects the peacefulness and tranquility of the island. The spa used natural oils from tropical plants which incorporates the elements of the island. We experienced an overwhelming relief after the massage and were all set to indulge in the various adventures of the island. We also enjoyed a full moon party at the resort in the evening.
3. Water Sports
Shark adventure is one of the major highlights that made our Maldives honeymoon experience even better. After waking up early, we reached the site to expereince snorkeling in Maldives. It was an incredible site to see the whale shark swimming beside us under the water. We also spotted many other underwater species like leopard sharks and blacktip reef shark. We also went for jet skiing adventures on our trip. Altogether, it was a lovely expereince.
Food In Maldives
My husband likes to experiment a lot with his food, he left no stone unturned when it came to indulging in the local delicacies. The in-house restaurant included a mix of Indian and International food all lip smacking. One must try seafood in Maldives, which is a specialty on the island. Also, the deserts were to die for.
Some Maldives Travel Tips Before You Set Off On Your Honeymoon
- Plan according to the weather. We went in the wet season so the deals we got were pretty cheap compared to the deals in the dry season.
- Buying the drinks and food on the resort can be quite expensive, so go for an all-inclusive package with drinks and snacks as well. You can enjoy buffet breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with unlimited snacks and drinks.
- You don’t have to stay at the water villa throughout your vacation. Opt for it on the last day.
- Go for a shark adventure or jet ski ride or a canoe. You can also opt for a dolphin cruise depending on your budget and the availability with the resort.
Do’s And Dont’s For Maldives
- Do try the local seafood that Maldives has to offer
- Indulge in water sports like snorkeling and scuba diving. If scuba diving isn’t your thing, snorkeling is a great option. The reefs are so pristine in the Maldives that you don’t have to go deep to see a lot!
- Go for a couple of massage that the resort has to offer. As the soothing music plays, skilled masseurs rub away the aches and pains from your long flight or day out in the sun. After an hour and a half of luxury, make sure you have nothing else on your to-do list for the day, as you’ll want to relish in relaxation.
- Don’t drink the tap water and always go for the packaged drinking water.
- Don’t forget to put the sunscreen on if you don’t want your skin to roast.
- Don’t walk on the corals while you scuba dive or snorkel. It’s punishable by the Maldivian law.
