Long regarded as one of the ultimate tropical getaways, this Indian Ocean paradise is a dream destination for a Maldives wedding or honeymoon. Surrounded by clear turquoise water, sparkling white sand, swaying palms and sultry sunsets it has all the trademarks of a heavenly island. Plus, the service is exemplary and the cuisine is superb.
Currently it isn’t possible to get legally married in the Maldives, but plenty of resorts offer non-legal ceremonies. Nearly all the resorts offer non-legally binding wedding ceremonies and vow renewal ceremonies, and it’s also a perfect spot to celebrate an extra special anniversary. You need to give prior notice to your chosen resort of your intention to marry, before you arrive.
Things to see and do
Only 200 of the 1,000 islands comprising the Maldives are inhabited, so there’s bound to be an empty beach for two just waiting for an unforgettable day-trip. The water is perfect for snorkelling and diving, with fantastic marine life and almost year-round visibility. The surfing is guaranteed to be unforgettable as well. Spoil yourself with an out-of-this-world spa treatment that goes above and beyond the expected.
