When you first thing about honeymoon locations… Do you get that perfect screen-saver image of over-the-water-villas?  Ever wonder where most of them are?  The Maldives house the majority of the over-the-water-bungalows that honeymooners often flock to.  So you might be racking your brain on where are the Maldives?   The Maldivian Islands can be found in South Asia.  There are over 1,000 islands to choose from to explore for your honeymoon in the Maldives so come along with us today as we introduce you to one of the best islands to honeymoon on!


Meeru Island Resort and Spa is a 79 acre island within the Maldives that offers anything you could ever want when you think about an ideal honeymoon location.  A few quick highlights to call out… The accommodation is first class (4-5 star resort in the Maldives) including over the water and beach side villas, there are things to do (Several pools, diving center on the property and water spots like kayaking, stand up paddle board, etc), delicious restaurant options, the resort property is groomed with gardens, there are all-inclusive options, and the staff are very kind and accommodating.  Kind of a no brainer to honeymoon here!

If you’re thinking about having a Honeymoon Photo Session Adventure, then there is no better property to have it on in the Maldives than on Meeru Island!  How perfect are these gorgeous honeymoon session locations?!  Having a post wedding session around the island is such a wonderful souvenir to go back home from the Maldives with!  Maldives Wedding Photographer Tip: Meeru Island is beautifully lit during sunrise (on the adult side).

One of the biggest selling points of having your honeymoon on Meeru Island in the Maldives is the top notch accommodation.  There are several different types to delight in such as the following: Over-the-Water-Villas (with and without hot tub) on the adult or family side of the island, Beach Villas and Garden Villas.  Our personal favorite honeymoon splurge is the over-the-water-villas as they provide the most unique type of experience.  You are also given a personal butler to clean your room and take care of anything you need during your stay and it truly makes you feel like you’re a V.I.P!

If you find yourself not wanting to leave your villa, that’s okay too!  Meeru Island staff are happy to bring you room service to enjoy in the comfort of your own villa!  One of the benefits of doing the all-inclusive option at Meeru Island in the Maldives is that there are unlimited drinks choices and snacks available for order anytime during the day!  There are also awesome nighttime activities to partake in like the following: Daily night show or themed parties, several bars, and a super awesome game room!  Their spa services also go quite late if you wish to share a romantic night together.

While staying in the Maldives, you have a long list of activities that you can partake in on the islands such as island-hopping, Asian cooking class, relaxing in the infinity pool, hammock relaxing, kayaking (and various other water sports), the spa, exploring the local island nature, snorkeling and scuba diving, etc!

The Maldives are known for their unique and abundant scuba diving areas.  Meeru Island, specifically is one of the BEST scuba diving areas in the Maldives as they have an outfitter onsite.  Euro-Divers on Meeru Island have talented staff who can teach, tour, and provide you an unforgettable experience either snorkeling or scuba diving.

Having a honeymoon in the Maldives means you will embark on an experience not a ton of people have done.  Mainly because of the expense and time to get there.  If you’re a North American looking to honeymoon in North America, then you’re looking at an overall budget between $7,000-18,000 USD depending on accommodation and activities for a 10 day adventurous honeymoon ($1,000-2,000 USD plane ticket each / $400-1,000 USD per night / Activities).


Does all of this sound like so much freaking FUN?!  If so, please contact us for more information on having an adventure honeymoon in the Maldives!
