If you care for the environment and are striving to remain “green” whenever possible, the Soneva Fushi resort might be of interest to you. It is among the most eco-friendly establishments on the entire archipelago and has a very unique, primitive aura to it. Fitted with plenty of driftwood furniture and finishes, thatch roof, and austere decorations, the resort feels like a jungle refuge. While most of the Maldives resorts prices are quite steep, the Soneva Fushi features a whole range of complimentary gifts and amenities, such as free kayak rentals or artisan chocolate tasting. These could prove to be excellent choices for couple activities during your honeymoon, and they are free to participate in, so what are you waiting for?
Located very close to Malé (only eight kilometers), the hotel can be very easily reached straight from the airport. There are even speedboat rides provided by the resort staff, but these cost extra. The Taj Exotica itself is a combination of an all-inclusive resort and a luxurious spa, filled with gorgeous water villas. The resort is also renowned for its very unique and uncommon set of activities, such as a private dinner with candles on a treetop, which is the most perfect setup imaginable for the ideal date. If you’re looking for something a bit less romantic, the resort offers an arrangement of snorkeling adventures and even poolside libraries, so you can easily transfer from having a swim to sunbathing with a good read. The cherry on top is perhaps the tradition of making personalized gifts, given at departure, which prove for wonderful souvenirs.
When looking for the best resorts in the Maldives for honeymoon, one can never forget the critically acclaimed Kuredu Island. Kuredu is a paradise island, surrounded by a gorgeous lagoon and sprinkled with white sand. If the tropical temperature outside proves to be too much for you to bear, you can seek shelter inside one of the luxurious apartments, all fitted with air conditioning and a mini-fridge. Some of the apartments, in addition, have a private balcony, and, if you pay a little extra, your room may come with private pool only for you to use. The resort is also family-friendly, so feel free to take the kids with you, as the resort is commonly praised for its varied assortment of activities to enjoy during your free time, for kids as well as adults!
If you are looking for a truly unique, one-of-a-time experience, the Muraka is exactly what you’re searching for. The Muraka is a very special part of the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island resort - a luxurious, first of its kind residence partially submerged underwater, one of the so-called underwater resorts. The master bedroom of the suite is located over 16 feet underwater - just imagine the marvelous views! Above water, you will find what is perhaps one of the most luxurious spaces in the world. At your disposal are two spacious bedrooms, a bathroom with an ocean-facing tub, and an open-sky deck with an infinity pool. You will also have access to a private, 24-hour butler and chef services, as well as a personal fitness trainer and spa treatments. Did we mention you get to have your own, private jet skis?
In the Maldives, resorts on water are a trending, popular thing. Baros Island Resort is probably the most sophisticated and well-renowned resorts out of them, with gorgeous overwater villas sprouting to life from their thin supports. Such establishments create a unique atmosphere of peace and tranquility, since the villas are usually placed quite some distance away from any signs of human life. Such a setting is perfect for romantic trips, making Baros Island one of the best resorts in the Maldives for honeymoon. However, the unique climate of the Baros does not come only from its refuge-like aura. The resort has its own marine biology team, which creates activities and attractions for the visitors, such as sightseeing the nearby coral reef or taking part in an underwater adventure, discovering the treasures of the ocean.
Weddings can often be quite expensive, since you want to make this one day in your life as special as possible. However, because of this, many married couples find themselves with little liquid assets to spend on their honeymoon. This is where Veligandu Island Resort comes in, being the perfect choice if you are on a tight budget but still want the perfect honeymoon at the Maldives. Light-blue water, white sand, as well as some peace and quiet - the essentials of every successful honeymoon. Like most of the other resorts in Maldives for honeymoon, the resort features numerous water villas fitted with Jacuzzis, private sundecks, access to tons of activities, and many more!
Since there is plenty of 5-star resorts in the Maldives, one might think that all of them are the same, without much difference. That, however, is not true, since every resort has its unique twist and style. The Four Seasons, in this case, is located on its own remote island, where you can be sure that nobody from the outside will disturb your vacation time. Online reviews of the resort praise the on-site spa of the resort, claiming the treatments to be revitalizing and relaxing beyond belief. For the more adventurous types, there are organized snorkeling expeditions during which you’ll be able to see some of the vibrant sea life living near the Maldives, such as sea turtles and manta rays! Don’t forget to grab a cup of coffee at the Cafe Landaa while you’re there!
Located at the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the tiny island of Milaidhoo is one of the most pristine and untouched placed you can visit in the Maldives. The resort boasts a 70m² terrace, which provides a marvelous view of the underwater life living beneath the waves. Most of the villas are either at the beach itself or extremely close to the beach, so you won't have to hike for long. If you're feeling a bit crazy, why not add access to a private pool to your tab, or maybe a butler and a private chef service to spend that perfect honeymoon date together with your significant other? Evening cruises provide yet another opportunity to spend some quality time with your spouse. Also, make sure to stop by the Ba’theli Bar Lounge for a drink or two, praised for its pleasant staff and fair prices.
If you’re looking for a truly luxurious experience, you definitely have to try the Gili Lankanfushi - one of the most sophisticated, up-scale resorts in the world.

If you value your privacy, you will be positively surprised that some of the villas can be only reached by boat, giving you a full refuge from prying eyes. Can you wish for a more perfect setup for a honeymoon date? What’s more, most of the villas have their own, private access to the ocean, so with a personal cook and a butler, you won’t even have to exit your own room for the entirety of the honeymoon!
