The Maldives is the perfect spot for a romantic honeymoon
Much like the celebrities who escape to isolated islands to evade the stress and drama of the real world, many newlywed couples search for the perfect secluded honeymoon destination so they can unwind in luxury with their new husband or wife.
There are many idyllic hotspots for this type of holiday but the stunning coral islands of the Maldives have always been a popular choice. Blessed with white sandy beaches, waters as bright as the dazzling blue skies, stunning sunsets and the most exquisite hotels, there’s no better place for honeymoon romance. We were invited to the luxurious Banyan Tree Vabbinfrau to see for ourselves how dreamy the Maldives really is.
Honeymoon fantasies are entirely fulfilled when you stay at the Banyan Tree Vabbinfrau. Only a 20-minute speedboat ride from the island’s capital Malé, the hotel is in an idyllic location surrounded by vibrant turquoise waters, soft white sand, indigenous blooms and swaying coconut trees. As soon as you set foot on the island you know you’ll find it very hard to leave. Guests are first greeted by the sound of drums and friendly staff serving delicious cocktails before being lead along the sandy paths of the resort to their villa.
All of the resort’s spacious accommodations have stylish interiors featuring a private outdoor pool with adjoining jet pool and sundeck. Waking up in your king-sized signature teakwood four-poster bed with the ocean view ahead of you, you’ll feel more than smug at the thought of your friends, family and work colleagues back at home.
It would be very easy to spend your whole honeymoon locked away in your sumptuous villa but everyone is soon persuaded to leave by the lure of the indulgent spa, the variety of activities available and the incredible dining opportunities.
The hotel spa is simply sensational. There’s a divine range of spa treatments based on traditional Asian healing philosophies which are carried out using a nourishing and soothing balm of locally grown coconuts. A dedicated therapist will knead you into relaxation with the lightest of intuitive touches while you relax in the breeze from the glowing Indian Ocean. The combination of beautiful facilities, wonderful therapists and unique treatments promises to leave you feeling fully restored.
