Best Maldives dive resorts for honeymooners

The ultimate honeymoon hideaway, the Maldives combines desert-island seclusion with exceptional Maldives diving experiences, where tropical reefs, crystal clear waters and big fish action come as standard. There are countless honeymoon resorts here, but for the ultimate in luxury, intimacy and Maldives diving, try one of these romantic retreats, which each offer over-water accommodation, perfect privacy and spectacular scuba-diving…

One and Only Reethi Rah Resort
The extra-special level of luxury, unparalleled degree of privacy and additional features – such as couple’s treatment suites and private dining – will appeal to any honeymooning couple, but for scuba-diving newly-weds, this resort holds even greater appeal: from shark-diving and manta-ray viewing, to wreck-diving and drop-offs, you’ll have access to some of the best that Maldives diving has to offer. The resort even has its very own luxury Dive Dhonis, so you can experience all the benefits of a Maldives Liveaboard, without having to sleep on-board – instead, stay in one of the sumptuous Water Villas, which are set over a turquoise lagoon.

Maafushivaru Island Resort
Set on a palm-fringed island next to an uninhabited sister island, Maafushivaru is the quintessential honeymoon hideaway. Surrounded by one of the best coral reefs that the Maldives’ diving repertoire has to offer, the resort has its own dive school, offering PADI courses and dives-outings for all levels. Beachfront Villas are available but scuba divers will be more inclined to opt for the Water Villas, which allow direct access into the Indian Ocean. When not underwater, enjoy candle-lit dining and private picnics, or make use of the resort’s spa, yoga pavilion and relaxation lounge.

Filitheyo Beach Island Resort Hotel
The only island resort on the Faafu Atoll, Filitheyo Beach offers barefoot luxury living at its very best. Surrounded by a spectacular house reef, this resort is a scuba-diving couple’s dream: the reef drops off to 90 metres, attracting pelagic fish via the currents that sweep the island. The dive centre offers daily dive-boat trips and, being the only resort in the atoll, you’ll have exclusive access to all 30 dive-sites here. The Water Villas are complete with four-poster beds, whirlpool-style bathtubs and private verandas.
