10 tips for your honeymoon in the Maldives

11 Oct 2016

The Maldives is awash with things to do and sights to see... and don't forget to pack those all-important items. Here are 10 top tips for your Maldives honeymoon

Some might say that the best part of getting married is planning the honeymoon. Honeymooning is the perfect excuse to plan the holiday of a lifetime, visit an exotic paradise or head off on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

After the chaotic whirlwind of your actual wedding day, you probably want to head off somewhere that will allow you to sit back, relax and just enjoy each other's company.

Choosing a destination that you’re both happy with can be a little tricky, but if you are both looking for an island paradise with clear blue water and white sandy beaches, then a honeymoon in the Maldives is exactly what you are looking for.

What to take with you on your honeymoon in the Maldives?

Located in the Indian Ocean, the islands of the Maldives offer some of the most picturesque landscapes. All you have to do is search for images of the Maldives to see why this is the perfect luxury holiday destination.

To make sure you have absolutely everything you could need before you head off to this island paradise, here are four things - recommended by Jumeirah - to take with you and check off your list:

1. Extra cash for hidden extras and taxes

The food and drink you’ll consume throughout your holiday has to be shipped and flown into the island, which means most items will include some extra tax. Just make sure you have a little bit of extra money with you to cover these costs.

2. Internet package

If you don’t fancy being completely cut off from the world and want to be able to show off your beautiful surroundings to your jealous friends and family, then make sure to check the wifi situation and extra internet charges that may apply. You could even speak to your mobile phone service provider before you go to top up your data allowance ahead of your trip or ask about one-off add-ons to ensure cheaper/free internet browsing. 

2. A compact camera and a charger 

You’ll definitely want a separate camera to document your time in the Maldives, as you’ll probably take hundreds of pictures and you don’t want to be rinsing the battery (or memory) on your phone.

3. Plenty of suncream

Whether you love to top up your tan, or you want to keep your skin UV free, lots of suncream is needed for the hot Maldives sun.

4. Insect repellent 

The sometimes humid conditions can be a breeding ground for mosquitos and even though resorts do their best to keep their surroundings bug free, it’s always a good idea to keep a bottle on you.

Essential things to do in the Maldives

The Maldives doesn’t just offer a beautiful paradise, it also provides a huge range of activities and things to do. A frequently visited location by celebrities such as Rob Lowe and royalty, like Will and Kate, these stunning islands offer the best in luxury travel. 

To make sure you get the absolute most from your time away, why not indulge in a few activities on days where you don’t fancy lounging around on the beach? The island offers a huge range of things to do including:

1. Scuba diving and snorkeling 

The Maldives offer some of the most stunning oceans and underwater wildlife around, making it a top destination for diving and snorkeling. Whether you want to dive deep down or just skim the surface with some of the beautiful marine life, it’s a must do for your honeymoon.

2. Pay a trip to Malé

As the capital city of the Maldives, visiting Malé can inject some busy, city life into your relaxing holiday and it’s the perfect opportunity to taste some local delicacies and get a few gifts for family and friends back home.

3. Explore on a sailing tour

A sailing tour around the island and your resort can show you even more of the gorgeous landscape of the Maldives. You even get some time to lie out on the deck and just enjoy the relaxing lull of the waves beneath you.

4. Relax with a spa day 

A lot of the luxury resorts on the island will have their own spas, ready to offer you a relaxing massage or a cleansing facial. Why not spend some time with your new spouse and get a couples massage?

5. Get active with watersports 

If you want to get up and get active, why not try a few of the watersports available? Waterskiing and jetskiing are both popular and can inject a bit of excitement into your day.

Whether you’re after a fun-filled honeymoon with lots to see and do, or somewhere to truly escape the chaos of post-wedding life, the Maldives are sure to provide you with not only the holiday of a lifetime, but also a honeymoon you will never forget.
