Addicted To The Maldives

Once the cake is cut and the bouquet is tossed, you’ve earned a honeymoon to some of most serene and idyllic islands in the world.

Your first step should to be to engage with a Destination Specialist. As a Maldives Specialist, Addicted to Maldives knows all there is to know about this dreamy destination and can help you create the ultimate honeymoon experience.

There are many points to note about the Maldives that cannot be found on the internet or in magazines or brochures, and so by dealing with a specialist who knows the destination, we can assist you with every detail, no matter how big or small.

A Destination Specialist can take the time to understand what it is that you are looking for in a honeymoon, curating a blissful itinerary incorporating individual knowledge and unique luxury experiences that will exceed the highest of expectations.


To fly from Australia into the Maldives, we usually recommend going via Singapore as the onward connections into the Maldives offered are some of the best.

I always recommend flying in to the Maldives during daylight for a couple of reasons: Firstly, flying in above all of those atolls below is a sight not to be missed! It truly adds to the experience and even after more than 20 trips to the Maldives, my tummy still spins with excitement when I see those turquoise rings glowing below.

The second reason I recommend this is that many of the resorts in the Maldives are only accessible via a seaplane flight from Male’ and the seaplanes stop flying at sunset. If you arrive in the evening, it may mean spending a night in the Capital Male’ or alternatively at a resort that is accessible via speedboat from Male’.



As we all know, weddings can be quite expensive and we could all use with saving a few pennies here and there.

By planning ahead and booking your Maldives honeymoon in advance, we can offer you access to some wonderful early bird booking offers which can include free nights, complimentary meal upgrades and some great rate discounts. Addicted to Maldives also offers exclusive complimentary VIP amenities to clients who book their honeymoons through Addicted to Maldives…who doesn’t love a free spa treatment, or perhaps a sunset cruise over the Indian Ocean!



Loved up couples will adore the plethora of romantic and unique experiences on offer in the Maldives.

Imagine you and your new husband or wife, dropped off on a remote, private island, which is yours to call your own for a few hours. A gourmet picnic hamper and champagne are the perfect additions, then pop on a snorkel and discover the beautiful underwater world of the Maldives.

BAROS Maldives offers one of the most stunning and memorable experiences I have seen! The piano deck at BAROS, is a timber platform shaped like a piano located in the middle of the stunning lagoon, with white billowing flags surrounding it. Enjoy a romantic champagne breakfast or toast a glass of champagne to the last rays of the Maldivian sun setting over the Indian ocean… just magic!

For those who enjoy a little more excitement in their holidays…W Retreat & Spa offers a fabulous Whale Shark encounter experience that is not to be missed! Snorkel the vibrant reefs with these gentle giants of the ocean and make sure you have an underwater camera handy…this is a moment you will definitely want to capture!

The Maldives truly is the most magical island destination on this planet and in my opinion offers the perfect experience for a memorable honeymoon.

Newly weds take note... we returned from our honeymoon 9 years ago to find out we were expecting our first child. Three years later after another Maldives trip and we found out we were expecting again! So this, future honeymooners comes with a warning. I’m not sure if it’s just the loved up state that we as honeymooners were in, or the ridiculously romantic scenery that surrounds you every where you look or a combination of all of the above, but maybe there is just something in that turquoise Maldivian water!

Go ahead, spoil yourselves and start planning the idyllic honeymoon of your dreams!
