The Maldives is such a unique place, due to its crystal clear blue waters, white sand beaches and their one of a kind overwater villas, which are just perfect for couples looking for a little romance (wink wink) on their honeymoon. Most overwater villas usually come with a private sundeck and pool, an entertainment centre, split level bedroom, open scenic views, excellent room service and personal butlers, just to mention a few of the goodies you get.

Some people are concerned that they might get a little bored by staying in the the Maldives for more than 7 days, due to being restricted to 1 small island but I’d like to remind you… you’re on your honeymoon (get busy – nudge…). Most, if not all of the resorts offer several activities for couples (and singles alike) such as star gazing, yoga, open-air cinema, scuba diving, snorkelling, bike riding (around the island), island hopping and so much more! Don’t worry you wont get bored, I promise!
