Like many couples looking for their ideal honeymoon destination, Wes and Amy have opted to visit the beautiful tropical paradise that is The Maldives.
After what we hope will be a sunny day for their wedding, they will leave the traditional gloom of an English October behind them and head off across to the other side of the world and into the Indian Ocean.
On arrival at the Maldivian capital city of Male, they will be escorted to their seaplane for their breathtaking transfer to the beautiful Kuramathi Island Resort with plenty of time to settle in and watch the beautiful sun set. This will probably mean that they will only get their first real view of their honeymoon island the next day, when they look out from their beautiful beach villa and start to explore their surroundings.
Although Kuramathi is one of the larger atolls at over 1km in length, and the resort with 290 rooms (some of the smaller island resorts have less than 20 rooms and are literally so small that you can walk around them in 10 minutes), it still has a wonderfully intimate and peaceful atmosphere, where the 500 or so guests who are staying on the island at any one time can still feel that they are the only ones there.
Wes and Amy will be able to enjoy the wonderful facilities on the island with its excellent choice of six different restaurants, beach and poolside bars, swimming pools, health spa and even a gym - and of course, a veritable watersports playground just a few steps away. The couple will find plenty of time to snorkel, swim and even go scuba-diving. In addition, if they are feeling extremely energetic -not a condition that is particular well-known in the Maldives - there is sea-kayaking, wind-surfing, sailing and the chance to take a seaplane flight to see these beauitiful atolls from the skies.
The accommodation on Kuramathi is simple, but elegantly designed with a mixture of mod-cons and traditional furnishings. All being well, it wont take too long for Wes and Amy to unwind after the excitement of their wedding day and adapt to 'island-time' and its strenuous daily routine revolving around eating beautifully-prepared food, sleeping, swimming and revelling in the incredibly beautiful tropical scenery.
Sadly the island idyll can't last for ever and after 10 days, it will be time to start the journey back to the main island by speedboat.
We are sure that Wes and Amy will love their honeymoon in the beautiful Maldives and that it will be the start for them, as it has been for so many of our other honeymoon couples, of a wonderfully happy married life together.
