As our first stop, we're bringing you to the beautiful summer paradise of the Maldives. It is the perfect place to create so many memorable honeymoon experiences. As a honeymoon destination, we have proof that Maldives is the tropical heaven where you can totally relax and enjoy some time off with the love of your life. Get your passport ready and write down the itinerary!

When is the best time to go?

The Maldives has a constant temperature, around 26°C-30°C (79°F-86°F) all year round. And yet, to make sure you'll experience the perfect weather, the best months to go are around January to March. During November and early December, there are often afternoon showers, but don't worry, they won't last long. To get the best deals and fares, you can choose to go on May through October when the weather is less predictable.

Where should you stay?

Most tourists choose the hotels they stay in based on the distance from the capital island of Malé. The further the islands from Malé, the more you require seaplanes to be transferred to the resorts. Meanwhile, closer islands only require private speedboats.

With over 100 resorts in Maldives, you may want to consider some important things for your honeymoon getaway. For instance, if you both are experienced divers or snorkelers, you might want to find out the best islands that offer better underwater experiences compared to others. So, here are few resorts that you should consider.
