Set in one of the most romantic destinations in the world, couples are able to enjoy the intimacy of seclusion as they survey miles of white sand, blue skies, and lush gardens.
Now, luxury resorts Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vittaveli have unveiled a new ‘Hammock for Two’ honeymoon addition, designed to start married life with an unforgettable experience.
In the southernmost part of the Maldives, 400 miles from the capital of Malé, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi proves the ultimate secret sanctuary in the heart of the Indian Ocean. Offering complete seclusion in the Gaafu Alifu Atoll, newly-weds can go the ‘extra mile’ to the resort for the ‘Hammock for Two’ honeymoon addition of their dreams. Offering an indulgent couple’s massage, as well as a Champagne breakfast and a four course dinner under the stars, the bespoke service will make couples feel like there is no one else on the island when added to any stay.
Each of the 38 villas come complete with private butlers, so honeymooners will have every wish will be catered to; from guided snorkelling tours of the reef in the crystal clear Indian Ocean, to private meals on secluded beaches. For those who want to make, or renew, their vows in paradise, dedicated wedding coordinators are also on hand to offer their support and expertise as part of the additional ‘Ultimate Wedding Day’ experience. The offer includes a Master of Ceremonies to lead the service and traditional Bodu Beru drummers for a traditional Maldivian flavour, as well as complimentary Champagne, a Wedding Cake and a candlelit dinner to ensure a day to remember.
Alternatively, honeymooners looking to enjoy personalised luxury closer to Malé can opt for JumeirahVittaveli, just a 20-minute boat ride from Malé International Airport. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Jumeirah Vittaveli is nestled in a spot of outstanding sophistication.
The ‘Ultimate Wedding Day’ experience is also available at Jumeirah Vittaveli, allowing couples to exchange vows with the stunning backdrop of the Indian Ocean, as they feel the traditional beat of the Bodu Beru. Whether a simple ceremony for two or a gala affair with family and friends, couples will have a pre-wedding meeting with the wedding coordinator to ensure their day is perfect. There is also the unique option to choose the exact location of the wedding ceremony, ensuring each ceremony will be personalised. Following the vows, a decorated wedding-buggy will carry the newlyweds back to the villa to enjoy VIP amenities and a romantic bath and bed decoration.
All villas, complete with private swimming pools and private beach access, make for the perfect setting to enjoy the ‘Hammock for Two’ addition. Enjoy a personalised luxury service against a backdrop of incredible ocean views and, for a taste of adventure, take time to wander along sea facing trails of unsurpassed beauty. The 5-star dive centre is a veritable hive of activity for canoeing, windsurfing and diving in one of the world’s most incredible coral reefs. A tandem bicycle – made for two – will allow newlyweds to explore the winding lanes of the island, which mirror the aesthetic of a traditional Maldivian village. At every turn,unbeatable hospitality and five-star amenities combine to capture the very essence of indulgence.
The ‘Hammock for Two’ addition is available to enhance any booked stay from June 2013, for 1000 USD at Jumeirah Vittaveli or 1500 USD at Jumeirah Dhevanafushi. The ‘Ultimate Wedding Day’ package is priced from 700 USD at both resorts.
