Be Newlyweds in the Maldives

The best honeymoon destination!

Choosing a honeymoon destination can get overwhelming. Just think about it: this has to be a once in a lifetime trip that you want to be memorable, unique, relaxing, exciting and romantic all at the same time! The best honeymoon destinations are those that not only provide all of the above, but interesting activities, incredible wildlife and unsurpassed luxury as well. That’s why more and more newlyweds are picking the Maldives for their post-wedding sojourn.


Getting there

Getting to the Maldives from Australia is easy; it’s just a quick flight via Singapore, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong. From the east coast, the total flight time is roughly 14 hours including your stopover (an eight-hour flight to Singapore, then a four-hour flight to Malé International Airport in the Maldives). On the journey, you can either opt for a short layover of an hour or two, or embrace the opportunity to add in a mini city break to your honeymoon in Singapore. Sip cocktails in swanky rooftop bars, shop for presents with your wedding wishing well fund or take in some local sites!

When in paradise…

Once you arrive at Malé International Airport you will be transported to the island of your choice by sea. The Maldives is made up of over 1,000 coral islands and there aren’t many other places that can boast a special experience before you even arrive at your resort. Imagine transferring between the airport and your hotel, not in a coach or a luxury limousine, but a speedboat or seaplane!

When you get to your island paradise, there is no doubt that you will feel instantly relaxed. You’ll be greeted by a highly trained team of resort staff to take care of your every need. Whether you choose an iconic overwater bungalow, an opulent villa hidden away on a secluded beach, or a luxury hotel room, the accommodation options available in the Maldives are out of this world! As you soak in your private spa looking out over the ocean, you won’t be able to imagine spending your honeymoon anywhere else.


Let romance abound!

You won’t be able to move for all the romantic experiences on these magical islands. From sunset cruises to beach picnics, private candle-lit dinners to oversized bubble baths filled with rose petals, life as newlyweds doesn’t get much better! As well as being one of the most romantic places on the planet, the Maldives are great for activities too. If you want to go for a surf, snorkel the coral reefs or learn to scuba dive, this is the place.
