We are excited to finally announce our winners of the incredible Renew Your Honeymoon competition, a prize worth £15,000 which includes a 10-night stay at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo Resort with full board dining, return international flights and £1,000 spending money…
Sam’s service in the Navy meant the couple had only spent one night alone together since they got married in 2009. Sam was unexpectedly deployed just three days after their wedding meaning their original honeymoon could not go ahead. Two children later, the family travelled to Florida for their ‘honeymoon’ but were left in their hotel room for four days after a hurricane disaster. Third time lucky, the couple started planning their dream holiday – just the two of them – to the Maldives, but plans were quickly halted with Katy becoming a surrogate for a close friend. After 14-years of marriage, Katy and Sam never thought their dream of a luxury honeymoon to Maldives would happen…
We are thrilled for you both and so incredibly pleased to be able to give you this wonderful holiday.
The luxury Maldives honeymoon prize is worth a whopping £15,000 and includes £1,000 spending money for your and your partner to enjoy while in paradise.
On this £15K getaway, you’ll spend a total of 10 nights at the five-star Raffles Maldives Meradhoo in the Gaafu Alifu atoll. Here you’ll spend five-nights relaxing in a beautiful Beach Villa with Pool before heading to a private Overwater Villa with Pool to continue the experience of pure indulgence for your remaining five-nights. You’ll be able to discover the extensive dining options at all three delicious restaurants as all your meals are included and also get to soak up the very best views of the Indian Ocean during your return domestic flight and speedboat transfers to and from Malé airport. Return international flights from the UK are also included.
All couples who have been married or in a civil partnership before January 2022 can enter our competition to renew their honeymoon. We are looking for couples who had a honeymoon that did not quite live up to their expectations or those who’s honeymoon never went ahead due to illness, coronavirus, financial circumstances, or any other reason.
This boutique resort has just 38 villas split across two neighbouring islands. All accommodation offers a private pool and expansive outdoor space, a luxurious bathroom and every little comfort you could dream of to ensure the holiday of a lifetime. There’s also dedicated butler service including trained marine butlers who are available to take you on guided snorkel trips around the two house reefs where you can spot an abundance of marine life including turtles and rays.
Three delicious restaurants will ensure you never go hungry. Choose between Japanese cuisine in an overwater setting, the best of barbeque and grill on the beautiful beachfront and international flavours at the island’s indoor-outdoor restaurant. Then, to wash it all down, enjoy signature cocktails and prestigious champagne at the two bars with a side order of uninterrupted ocean views. The stunning spa will melt any tensions in a moment and for budding yogi’s you’ll be pleased to know there are plenty of spaces for you to practice your asanas with the sunrise or sunset providing the optimal backdrop.
