Maldives Sun Island honeymoon

Everyone wants their honeymoon to be special, unique, and memorable. Most couples spend a lot of time, effort and money and ensuring it.A lot of time will be spent deliberating and deciding on the perfect location. But if enjoying the sun, sea and beaches of a tropical island is your idea of a perfect honeymoon, then look no further than the Maldives.

However, just because you've narrowed it down to one country, doesn't mean the choices get any easier, as every other resort in the Maldives will quite naturally seem better and more perfect than the last one you checked. A key factor for honeymooners when choosing a resort in the Maldives is the amount of privacy available. Fortunately, guests staying at Sun Island Resort and Spa in South Ari Atoll will never find lack of privacy to be an issue. Located around 95km away from Malé International Airport (about 30 minutes away via seaplane), the huge
 island of Nalaguraidhoo on which the resort is located offers unrivalled privacy and is believed by many to be one of the most stunning and picturesque islands in the entire South Ari Atoll.

One of the most luxurious five-star resorts in the country and one of the premier resorts from the well-known Villa Hotels chain, Sun Island Resort and Spa has over 400 rooms in various accommodation categories for guests to choose from. Dotting the beautiful beaches of the resort are the 136 Deluxe and 216 Super Deluxe rooms, all offering beautiful views of the resort's beach and lagoon. The Deluxe rooms provide 21m2 of space, equipped with modern amenities such as satellite television and Internet access. They also come with private verandas and dozens of onsite activities. The Super Deluxe Rooms are the same size but offer the convenience of en-suite bath and shower facilities, enabling enhanced privacy.

When it comes to romantic dining and wining, Sun Island Resort and Spa exemplifies good service and world-class cuisine. The resort has over five restaurants including Italian, Thai, a 24-hour a la carte coffeeshop /Southern Star Grill and the Main Restaurant. All feature fantastic views in a romantic setting and a large variety of scrumptious dishes and fine wine lists to make each meal a memorable one. "Maaniyaa Restaurant" is the main restaurant and is open daily for guests accommodated on board inclusive terms. The meals at the restaurant are served in buffet style. "Vani" coffee shop and bar is open 24 hours and provides light meals and desserts. The Club Green House Bar is set amidst the corner of the lawn area in the heart of the island; a perfect place to quench your thirst and experience a different setting from the usual ocean views. The Ristorante Al Pontile and Bar offers a breathtaking view of the resort's house reef and serves traditional Italian cuisine and
 Japanese specialties. The restaurant itself is open from 11am to 11pm while the bar is open 24 hours. Finally, there is the Sun Star, the Thai Restaurant and Bar which offers Thai and Oriental delicacies from an exclusive Reef top restaurant. Arguably this restaurant offers the most overtly romantic setting available for newly-weds to enjoy as it's possible to watch the glorious Maldivian sunsets from here. Further, guests can also watch the stingrays gather at the stingray feeding spot near the outlet every evening.

Couples can also enjoy the wide range of sports and recreational facilities that the resort offers. A large swimming pool is set amidst the exotic landscaping, extending right to the edge of the lagoon. Watersports available from the resort include banana boat riding, windsurfing, and canoeing, the latter of which is a favourite among couples as it allows them to float over the beautiful lagoon on the craft and just enjoy each other's company.

The resort also organises various excursions such as night fishing, dolphin safaris, and even uninhabited island visits which are always popular with honeymooners and couples. And let's not forget about the spa sessions at the resort's Araamu Spa. The spa is an absolute must for all honeymooners as it offers the chance for couples to indulge themselves in the amazing treatments designed to rejuvenate both body and mind with scented oils, gentle music and caring hands. Fall under the soothing spell of traditional Maldivian healing techniques, enhanced by the natural essence of flowers, marine plants, and herbs.

Sun Island Resort and Spa is among the biggest resort island hotel in the Maldives and is perfect for honeymooners as it offers all the modern comforts, conveniences and facilities one would expect from a high-class resort along with a suitably romantic atmosphere that's just irresistible.
