The Maldives-A Once-In-A-Lifetime Experience
Updated: Jul 16, 2022
The epitome of a private island experience, the Maldives is an idyllic escape for romance and luxury travel. Pristine white sand beaches, mesmerizing turquoise waters, vibrant corals, and warm hospitality, the word “paradise” jumps to mind when you think of the Maldives.
Considered to be one of the best honeymoon destinations in the world, the Maldives is studded with an array of luxurious resorts and stunning natural beauty. You can spend your days resting or chasing adventure. If you’ve never been here before, these South Asian islands have something to offer everyone. Here’s what you can look forward to in the Maldives.
Dive Into Another World
Cocooned in clear water lagoons, the Maldives are perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling.
The Maldives has a diverse and rich marine ecosystem that makes for an immersive underwater experience. Swimming with manta rays, moray eels, and whale sharks in the tranquil waters of the ocean is bound to be an unparalleled experience. In addition, the coral reefs in the Maldives are among the most beautiful you’ll ever see. If you look around long enough, you’ll even come across black coral and green tree coral. Easy to sight but impossible to forget, the marine life in the Maldives will transport you to a whole other universe. Okobe Thila, Kuredu Express, Maaya Thila, and Ari Atoll are some of the many amazing dive sites on the islands.
Go Island Hopping
The Republic of Maldives may be the smallest country in Asia, but it is home to over 1190 islands. Of these, nearly 200 islands are inhabited where you can find the most lavish places to stay. With so many islands within reach, you could go island hopping and experience one island every day if you felt like it. The ideal spot for luxury honeymoons, each of these Maldivian islands is secluded, stunningly gorgeous, and packed with every amenity to suit your whim.
Leisurely Strolls on the “Glowing Beach”
One of the Maldives’ many highlights, the Vaadhoo Island (or Mudhdhoo island), is embellished with glow-in-the-dark corals rinsing the beach’s shores at night. The phenomenon can typically be witnessed between September and November and is caused by small crustacea known as ostracods. So if you’re looking for a romantic spot for that magical walk with your partner, this glowing beach is the place to be. Fairly secluded, this island in the Maldives makes for a wonderful couples’ evening out.
Take a Sunset Cruise on Dhoni
Dhoni is a traditional Maldivian boat made out of coconut palm timber by native craftsmen on the islands. Nothing can beat watching a glorious sunset from a dhoni. In addition, you’ll come across rare sightings of dolphins, eagle rays, and massive turtles from the decks of this boat.
The views are picture-perfect, so make sure you have your camera handy to capture those priceless moments. Or just lay low and soak up the sun. Either way, you’re going to experience this tropical paradise in a unique way.
Pop open a bottle of Champagne and indulge in some of the most delectable seafood delicacies at the Ithaa Underwater Aquarium Restaurant while being surrounded by the deep blue water of the ocean. Located by the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, this underwater restaurant is a romantic blow-out.
Conceptually, it takes extravagance to the next level. Serving top-class gourmet lunch and dinner with 4-course and 6-course meals, respectively, Ithaa is the world’s first all-glass underwater restaurant. For vacationers, Ithaa offers a cocktail hour at noon, too.
Get Touristy at Malé
If you feel like touching base with the locals on your honeymoon, spend some time in the Maldives’ capital city of Malé. It’s got beaches like Angasana and Hulhumale, and the Maldives Fish Market is also famous for its varieties of freshly caught seafood.
The Maldives National Museum flaunts its charm with awe-inspiring artifacts on display. If you’re into art and culture, spend an afternoon soaking in the art and culture in The Esjehi Art Gallery.
Stay In an Over-the-Water Bungalow
The COMO Cocoa Island Resort is famous for its water bungalows. These over-water cottages are crafted to imitate the traditional Maldivian fishing boats, dhonis, from afar. In addition, this chic island resort has a world-class spa to loosen up your tense muscles.
With each bungalow having its own private terrace and some even boasting private pools, this resort is where you live in the lap of luxury. With floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the sparkling blue ocean, along with an infinity pool, you’ll feel like you’re floating over the ocean.
An excellent site for diving or snorkeling, there’s plenty to indulge in during your stay at the Cocoa Island Resort.
Try the Traditional Dhivehi Cuisine
Maldivian food, also known as the Dhivehi cuisine, features a wonderful blend of Srilankan and Indian flavors with a unique and native twist. Seafood being the hero of the cuisine, you’ll find a plethora of fish dishes being prepared everywhere across the Maldivian Islands.
Typically coastal, the Dhivehi cuisine is all about bold flavors of the coconut with a dash of enjoyable spiciness complemented by subtle but tangy notes. Garudhiya, a Maldivian fish soup, is a stunningly simple delicacy. It is wholesome, tasty, and a must-try for anyone visiting the Maldives. Finally, mah Suni is a popular Maldivian breakfast dish that sings with delicious flavors of smoked tuna, chili, lemon, coconut shavings, and onions.
If nothing else, Maldivian cuisine should be your excuse to visit the islands.
