There are many quality resorts in the Maldives where you can spend your honeymoon lounging in the lap of luxury. Here are three of the best islands to consider when making your post-nuptial plans:
1. Baros Maldives
Baros Maldives was only the third resort in Maldives and opened in December 1973. It sits in a coral reef at the centre of atoll and its natural beauty has been consciously preserved by its leasing family. The romantic theme is carried through in everything the resort offers.
A consistent performer at the annual WTA cerenomy, Baros won the “Indian Ocean’s Leading Resort” again this year. It also took the “Indian Ocean’s Most Romantic Resort” and the “Maldive’s Leading Water Villa Resort” awards at the same cerenomy. Sporting three of the Top Five rankings in the 2013 Travellers Choice Awards, it’s a premium destination within the Maldives.
2. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island
The Conrad won the “Indian Ocean’s Leading Hotel” award at the 2013 WTA cerenomy. Elegantly sprawled over two islands, it’s linked by a bridge and boat service.
The Spa Resort on the main island indulges guests with a selection of marine-based therapies in the 21 Spa Water Villas, which each sports its own private treatment room. On Rangalifinolhu Island, 79 Beach Villas are embraced in an innovative landscape which ensures secluded living spaces right on the beach.
Remarkably well planned, the out-door bathrooms and walls of expansive glass keep guests submerged in an idyllic tropical paradise setting without compromising privacy, while the 50 Water Villas, at Over-The-Water Spa on Rangali Island, rest elengantly on stilts in a turquoise ocean.
3. One & Only Maldives at Reethi Rah
Voted the “Maldives Leading Resort” at the 2013 World Travel Awards, this resort is a frequent performer the annual awards cerenomy. At the World Luxury Spa Awards, One and Only Maldives was the Global Winner and also the winner for the Best Luxury Wellness Spa, in the Indian Ocean Continent category.
The resort is found in North Male Atholl, on the one of its largest islands. It is the first One & Only venture in the Maldives, and nothing was held back in creating an elegant and luxuriant tropical paradise for guests to enjoy.
Here, 130 private villas offer remarkably spacious living areas, scattered at discreet intervals across the island. The setting is immaculate, paradisical and private to a point with 98 Beach Villas, coyly placed along the beach amidst a forest of 15000 coconut trees. The remaing 32 Water Villas sit sagely, serene above the calming lagoon waters.
