It's the most important holiday a couple will most likely take. Maldives is the perfect choice for all couples who want to kick off their marriage in style.
Just picture it: a private villa on crystal blue waters, orange sunsets that make you hungry for local citrus, room service and masseuses on call to avoid any trips away from your porch, and a breathtaking coral reef with amazing underwater creatures. This is the Maldives.
Who cares about the cliché destinations like The Bahamas or Bora Bora? The Maldives is everything! Even though it requires patience to get and stay there- no direct flights and usually accommodation is expensive. It is located between the Arabian and Laccadive seas, about 500 miles southwest of Sri Lanka. With its economy recently being in flux, it is one of the most luxurious dreams of all travelers seeking for the most romantic getaway of their lives.
