What sort of budget would you need for a Maldives honeymoon?

We would recommend a budget of anywhere from £1,500-3,500 (€1,750-4,000) per person and up!


How do I get there? And are there any must-see stops along the way?

You can fly direct during our winter months with British Airways. Or indirect year round with most middle eastern carriers such as Emirates, Etihad, or Oman Air. With these routes, it creates the perfect twin centre as you will be stopover over in one of these cities - city and beach at it's best!

What's the most romantic part of a Maldives honeymoon?

The most romantic part of a honeymoon in the Maldives would have to be a private dining experience. You can either do this on a private island, sandbank or just on the beach. Often you will have a menu prepared for you with paring wines. Throughout the meal it will just be you and your loved on and the waiter who will be at your beckon call! Listen to the waves on the beach, watch the stars in the sky and enjoy some of the finest food and wine in the world.


What sort of couple would a honeymoon in the Maldives suit?

Everyone! Most people think its not for anyone looking to be active but you would be surprised how easy it is to fall in to island life. Keep yourselves amused with a walk around the island, visit the top restaurants, read a good book, go snorkelling and diving, have a go at paddle boarding and boat trips to name a few.
