It’s hard to imagine a destination that’s more primed for romance than the Maldives. With its postcard-perfect scenes of turquoise waters, talc-soft sands, pristine beaches and hidden coves, this idyllic Indian Ocean nation has long been a haven for honeymooners and couples looking to create memorable moments. At JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa, the romance begins from the moment you board the seaplane from Velana International Airport, treating you to a scenic journey and mesmerizing aerial views of the island.
Guests are welcomed to this island paradise by their Thakuru (private butler), who escorts them to their villa. Inspired by the lush tropical landscape of the island, the resort’s 60 Overwater and Beach Pool Villas incorporate a coastal-chic colour palette and natural textures, creating a welcoming sanctuary that is in harmony with its surroundings.
Guests are made to feel at home in the comfort of their villas, promising privacy and tranquillity, while soaking in the stunning views of the Maldives. Featuring a king-sized bed with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views, a sea-facing soaking tub, separate living area on the top floor, private swimming pool, and sun-drenched deck with stairs leading into the sea, the Duplex Overwater Pool Villas are the ideal escape for two.
Crafted for couples, the resort’s new Romantic Retreat package is designed to ignite romance, offering an array of unforgettable experiences in the comfort of their villa and across the island.
Throughout their stay, couples can indulge in an array of curated dining experiences, including a floating breakfast in the privacy of their villa’s pool, and a Destination Dining Malafai Dinner for two by the beach, which is a traditional feast deeply rooted within Maldivian history. Also included in the package is daily breakfasts at Aailaa and daily dinners at selected restaurants, and 60% off the food bill when dining at signature overwater restaurants Hashi and Shio. Choose from a range of cuisines, from flavour-packed Thai dishes in a treetop house at Kaashi and traditional Italian at al fresco Fiamma, to authentic Japanese teppanyaki demonstrations at Hashi.
The package alsoincludes an Ultimate Aromatherapy Treatment massage for two at Spa by JW; one romantic turndown service in their villa; a private sunset yoga session in the overwater Yoga Pavilion; complimentary use of non-motorized water sports, and a 30-minute photography session including one printed photograph, perfect for capturing this magical moment in paradise.
