The Maldives officially the Republic of Maldives is a small country in South Asia, The Maldives is an archipelagic country with nearly 1200 islands formed out of natural atolls. It lies on the Indian Ocean to the south-west of Kerala’s capital, Trivandrum and on the east-west side of Sri Lanka. SriLankan Airlines, for instance, operates flights from Colombo that get you to Male in an hour straight. India and Sri Lanka are the Maldives’ closest neighbors.
Before converting to Islam, the Maldivians were known to practice Buddhism and ancient paganism. Ancient Buddhist ruins are preserved in the country and antique Buddhist artifacts are displayed in the National Museum in Male’.
The Maldives is unusual as a holiday destination because of the fun things to do. Entertainment and daily excursions are organized at every resort so without shying, you should join in. Excursions will include fishing and cruising (to watch dolphins dance) as well as visits to the capital, Male’, and to genuinely deserted islands, perhaps for swimming and a picnic, and shopping expeditions to neighboring inhabited islands.
You will be able to organize fun activities for yourself, like going on a dhoni (local boat) to try your hand at line fishing, or swim in crystal clear lagoons watching marine life through a snorkel.
A dawn walk along the beach is not only invigorating exercise, but it’s also a chance to see what the night’s waves have washed up. There will probably be bits of dead coral and shells, but leave those there; empty shells become homes for crabs. It’s not unknown to find a bottle with a message in it although to stumble on a pirate treasure chest is unlikely. You will see arrow-shaped footprints of sea birds and perhaps tire-like trails traced in the sand from the sea’s edge. That means a turtle came ashore in the night to lay eggs and its flippers left the tell-tale trail.
you will get a chance to be together in a way that never happens at home. Accommodation on a resort is not just a room, it’s a private love nest designed for the romantic.
Just as there are resorts more suitable for families with children or for enthusiastic divers, there are also resorts designed for those in love, whether beginning life together, renewing their vows, celebrating a wedding anniversary, commemorating their years of partnership, or simply wanting to get back in touch with each other away from the humdrum of daily life.
Wedding Celebration :
Getting married is one of the most important events in a person’s life. It is an occasion to be remembered – and a special way to make the occasion memorable is to have the affirmation of marriage and the wedding celebration in the Maldives. Many resorts have been licensed to perform what is termed Symbolic Weddings. Even a couple that has not undergone a civil ceremony beforehand can celebrate a symbolic marriage in Maldivian resorts. Some weddings have even been performed underwater. The occasion can be a fusion of local tradition with the couple dressed in Maldivian costumes with local Bodu Beru drummers providing the music, or follow the conventional style
Even if you don’t have your wedding in the Maldives, you can add to the memory of the occasion by honeymooning in one of the most romantic resorts in the world. That is one of the joys of holidaying in the Maldives – guests are left alone to do as they please.
Babymooners are welcome at resorts too – they are those couples awaiting the arrival of their first baby and who want to enjoy time together before the start of their family. Couples celebrating anniversaries are also given special attention, especially on Valentine’s Day when romance is remembered by every couple on holiday.
With lazy moments on the beach, rejuvenating treatments in the spa, and gourmet cuisine with personalized service, a romantic resort in the Maldives is also the dream-come-true holiday destination
for mature couples… as well as for newlyweds.
