Picking where’s best to go for your honeymoon is a big decision. Ultimately it all comes down to what type of honeymoon you’re after. City-hopping? A cruise? Or the old faithful of a tropical beach getaway? 

If it’s the latter you’re after, look no further than the Maldives. Thousands of honeymooners choose to reside in this paradise destination each year, and it’s no surprise why – the stunning resorts and hotels are practically built to accommodate your first romantic getaway as a happily married couple. 

Not only are the sandy beaches incredible and the restaurants top tier, but there's a sense of peaceful privacy here that you simply don’t get anywhere else. A Maldives honeymoon is like no other. 

So, what are the best Maldives honeymoon villas? And what resorts are these luxury residences located in? Let’s give a full rundown of our top Maldives honeymoon picks.

‘The Romantic Residence’ at Velaa Private Island

We couldn’t list the most luxurious Maldives honeymoon villas without The Romantic Residence at Velaa Private Island. It’s pretty much the perfect honeymoon suite, so much so we just had to mention this villa first.

As a One-Bedroom Villa suspended on stilts out on the island’s lagoon, your honeymoon can’t get any more private than this. In fact, the residence is only accessible by boat. You’ll experience luxuries like a Jacuzzi, an outside dining terrace, and an oversized bath with plenty of room for two. Perhaps best of all, your own private chef and butler will serve you for the duration of your stay.

Most romantic part: All of it! The entire residence is specially designed to evoke romance and seclusion for newlyweds.

‘Sunset Overwater Villa’ at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo

One of the most romantic ways to celebrate your exciting new beginnings is to lounge on a terrace cabana watching the sunset horizon, and you can do that every day with the West-facing views of this Sunset Overwater Villa.

Although it’s not the biggest residence at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo, it’s certainly the most suitable for honeymooners. Your hardest choice will be whether to take a dip in your own private infinity pool that stretches out into the ocean or collapse into the warm bubbles of a Jacuzzi bath. Inside, the space is styled with gorgeous contemporary decor and finished with modern amenities like a flat-screen TV and a fully stocked minibar.

Most romantic part: The villa is perfectly positioned to get the most out of golden sunset hours.

Inside brings its own sense of paradise too. Each room is vibrant and spacious, especially your bedroom complete with a king-size bed, a luxurious ensuite, and doors that open up to your outside space (which features a plunge pool).

The best luxury honeymoon villas in Maldives FAQs

What are the best couples activities for a Maldives honeymoon? 

Maldives honeymoon resorts offer a wide range of leisure and recreational activities. It’s all down to what you find most appealing. Work up a sweat together on a tennis or badminton court. Get wet and wild with thrilling water sports and diving excursions, or take a relaxing day trip to the resort spa for a couple’s massage. The Maldives’ resorts have something to keep you entertained every day.

What should you pack for a Maldives honeymoon?

A Maldives honeymoon requires a smaller, less-packed suitcase than your typical beach holiday – especially fewer shoes. Maldives honeymoon resorts are all about barefoot or sandals vibes, so you can ditch the high heels and boots. Just make sure you bring plenty of sunhats, swimwear options, and a few evening outfits for your special dinner reservations. Matching Hawaiian shirts wouldn’t go amiss for getting into the tropical vibes, too! 

Any of the many world-class resorts can provide you with a luxury stay in the Maldives. Simply browse our list and settle on a honeymoon resort that best suits your needs and preferences.
