Whether you choose an all-inclusive resort or an island hotel, there’s an island for you. Here are some of the top 5 islands, and how to pick your best spot for a love holiday.
Male Island to be in the centre of the action
If you want to stay in the capital amongst all the action, then Male island is the best option. This is one of the smallest capitals in the world and a place where native Maldivians reside. It’s quite a busy place and very built up, but it is a bustling metropolis in the middle of a turquoise paradise.
Top romantic things to do here include to swim together in Male’s protected ocean pool which is called the Artificial Beach. Enjoy a delicious local seaside lunch looking out onto the ocean, or even try snorkelling and try some unique underwater scooter riding. Of course, from the capital there are lots of trips to take to nearby islands. If you want a different scene from the six square kilometre island there are plenty of daytrips you can go on. Other things to do include visiting the local markets and wandering along the lovely waterfront.
The best honeymooner places to stay include Hotel Jen Male, which has a rooftop pool with great views across to other islands and the city. Rooms are modern and sleek some with a beautiful ocean view. An alternative is Champa Central Hotel which gives you a lovely base to explore with excellent service.
