The Maldives...Still our favourite honeymoon destination.

Thursday 11 October 2018

With brilliant white sands, sparkling aqua-marine lagoons and vibrant coral reefs, it’s no wonder this paradise is at the top of so many of your honeymoon wish lists. Our personal travel experts have been planning honeymoons to the Maldives for over 20 years and know that no two islands are the same. Let us help you find the right one and craft your perfect honeymoon.

As preferred partners of leading Maldives specialist Kuoni we get access to great offers too, so your honeymoon doesn’t even have to cost the earth…

Here are a few of our travel experts recommendations... two hot new properties and a firm favourite. 


Faarufushi will be the newest 5* island resort in the northern Raa Atol when it opens its doors in December this year. It’s pristine white sands and intoxicatingly blue lagoon, complemented by chic, minimalist designed interiors, will all make it the perfect honeymoon paradise. Choose a Beach Bungalow with outdoor bathroon, Beach Retreat with private plunge pool or an indulgent Ocean Retreat with over-water deck and private infinity pool.

Sample Package – 7 nights in a Beach Bungalow on a half board basis costs from £3,529pp departing Newcastle in May 2019. Includes flights and overseas transfers. 

Kuramathi is one of the most popular resorts in the Maldives, and also one of the largest islands. It’s size means it has lots to offer – a mile-long beach, spa, diving school, 12 restaurants and seven bars. Laze by either of the two ocean-front infinity pools, or the lagoon pool shaded by palms, or snorkel on the stunning house reef accessed straight from the beach. Simply designed rooms range from Garden and Beach Villas and Pool Villas but for that iconic over-water experience opt for the Deluxe Water Villa (pictured).

Sample Package – 7 nights in a Deluxe Water Villa on an all-inclusive basis costs from £3,037pp departing Newcastle selected dates January to March 2019. Includeds flights and speed boat transfers.

Sandies Bathala is another new kid on the block. Opening in February 2019 it will offer great value all-inclusive and a short transfer time, as its only 15 minutes seaplane ride from the main airport. It’s a divers heaven and reef sharks, turtles and colourful fish are regularly spotted around the house reef. Life on this island resort will be simple – choose a beach or a water villa and everyone will enjoy all-inclusive dining.

Sample Package – 7 nights in a Beach Villa on an all-inclusive basis costs from £2,180pp departing Newcastle 25 March 2019. Includes flights and seaplane transfers.
