I have nailed it down to 3 resorts and decided to book with Only Exclusive Travel. They are a UK tour operator who specialize in luxury packages and tailor making itineraries.
The ones I like best from their selection of Maldives resorts are:
I would guess you can also take a boat trip to snorkel at the coral reef next to the island. It looks like there is a sand bank there too- I have been on one once before and they are very cool. Especially with sand that white.
Also this resort is a nice small island which looks easy to walk around. I have been on a similar sized island in Fuji once and you really get the Robinson Crusoe experience. It looks like the spa is over the water too, with an infinity pool- that's my kind of luxury.
The photo below says it all. That is the kind of photo people post on Facebook. Heavenly accommodation on stilts above amazing crystal clear water and shite sand. I am guess that snorkeling is limited here as the turqoiuse water is very smooth looking- but that is a bonus for swimming.
This resort seems larger than the others. That could be a good thing in that there will probably be more facilities, but is it ideal for a honeymoon? I can't ignore the beauty of the place though. I am thinking of possibly splitting my time here with one of the other two. We could even do all 3?
What do you think? We haven't even set a date for the wedding yet so there is no rush. Any recommendations or experience about any of these Maldives island resorts, or others in the Maldives would be most welcome. If you had to choose one which one would you choose?
