Special occasions

Romantic island getaways

There’s no place more romantic to spend your honeymoon than the Maldives. Toast to your love with a glass of champagne on a sunset cruise or renew your vows barefoot in the Maldivian sands. 

Even though you can't legally get married in the Maldives, most resorts perform an array of wedding ceremonies on the beach, on private islands and even underwater. There is also the option to fly there straight afterwards to spend a couple of weeks in the lap of luxury. The Maldives honeymoon ‘essentials’ – stunning ocean views, incredible overwater accommodation, infinity pool and spas for pampering – are all here, plus much more. 

Glorious, year-round sun, sublime beaches from another world and hospitality without equal. Make your stay in the Maldives even more memorable when you celebrate a special occasion. Widely recognised as a romantic destination for honeymoons or anniversaries, imagine watching the sun set from the deck of your overwater villa; or staring out at the ocean from your private plunge pool; or enjoying dinner on the balcony with only the stars for company. These experiences are what make the Maldives such a dream destination.

Perhaps the occasion is simply that you’re on holiday in the Maldives? In which case each resort has treats and romantic touches to make your stay memorable. If it’s dinner for two on the beach you want, a boat trip for you and your partner or a personalised spa experience, the resort staff are just waiting to oblige and fulfil your dreams. So, kick off your shoes — they’re not needed. It’s barefoot luxury all the way here and in the Maldives, resort staff are here to cater for your every need. Many room options even include a dedicated host because, well: when in the Maldives! 

Couples can still say their vows in the Maldives, with renewal ceremonies for partners who tied the knot decades ago!

The Maldives is a special place already, but with the help of your chosen resort you can make it an unforgettable experience whether it’s just the two of you or your whole family.
