Check in, chill out

For the ultimate post-wedding wind-down, Constance Halaveli Resort is a little slice of idyllic island luxury. Nestled on the North Ari Atoll, this resort is five-star service at its very best.

Each perfectly-positioned over-water villa has been stylishly designed in the shape of a Maldivian Dhoni (a traditional boat) and boasts it’s own made-for-two plunge pool on a private sun terrace. Whether you choose a super-sleek beachfront villa or an oh-so-romantic over-the-water retreat, every room has high-tech extras like an iPod dock and mini Mac computer, so no need to fly with those added extras if you need to.

And for guests staying more than five nights, the hotel offers fruits and sparkling wine on arrival so you can toast to your first trip as husband and wife.

Feel-good food

Once the sun has gone down, while away the evening at one of the hotel’s deliciously tempting restaurants or super-cool bars.

Perched on a jetty over the crystal clear water, effortlessly elegant Jing is the perfect place to celebrate and make memories. Sample the freshly cooked fusion cuisine, and if you can tell your Chablis from your chardonnay, specially-trained sommeliers are on hand to help you select a special treat from the Halaveli wine cellars, rumoured to be one of the best-stocked in the world.

For a more relaxed dinner à deux, head over to the beachside seafood grill Jahaz where you can dine al fresco with the sand between your toes and views of the sun setting over the sea.

Relax and unwind

Because all-out indulgence is a must on your honeymoon, make sure you take time for a little pampering at the resort’s spa. Using luxury brand ILA’s 100% natural skincare products, the well-appointed spa offers a huge range of relaxation therapies as well as couple’s treatments so you and your new husband can chill-out together. All of the spa rooms are suspended over the sea – the gentle lapping of the waves and the warm sunshine on your skin will make the experience extra-special.

As a welcome treat, the resort offers 50% off per person on any spa treatment for guests staying more than five nights.

If you’re feeling adventurous during your stay, there are plenty of activities available to keep you and your man busy. Halaveli holds pride of place near some of the best dive sites in the Indian Ocean and trips can be arranged for beginners or expert divers alike to explore the awe-inspiring reefs and catch a glimpse of the colourful underwater wildlife.

Laid-back luxury

35911

Constance Moofushi Resort offers an unexpectedly luxurious all-inclusive experience – everything in the mini bar in your room to all cocktails and wines from the extensive wine cellar are included. Situated on the picturesque South Ari Atoll, there are a host of exclusive accommodation options. Either make yourself comfortable in a beautiful beach villa with private wooden sun deck, or upgrade to a gorgeous senior water villa and soak up the sun in your very own outside bathtub that seemingly floats out over the Indian Ocean. Absolutely breathtaking.

For guests staying more than five nights, they will receive sparkling wine and fruits in their villa on arrival.

Food for thought

You’re certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to dining at Moofushi and the Manta buffet restaurant is incredible. The hotel’s chefs will whisk you off on a round-the-world cuisine experience and cook up mouth-watering dishes in front of your eyes. But if you’re after fine dining, the à la carte restaurant Alizée offers gastronomic delights and seafood grills.

There are two tropical-inspired bars to chose from but we love the Castaway feel of the Totem bar, hidden away under a canopy of trees but still right by the beach. By day, try the refreshing fruit smoothies and cooling iced teas and in the evening, snuggle up as the sun sets to enjoy a signature special-blend cocktail. Cheers!

Perfect day

35913

If you ever tire of sitting in the sunshine, take one of the hotel’s carefully thought-out trips to help you explore your surroundings. Plan a sweet honeymoon surprise for your hubby and set sail to discover your own powder white sand deserted island, just for two. Or visit the local village of Himando for a glimpse of the Maldivian way of life.

But if you don’t fancy straying from the resort (and we don’t blame you!), there are plenty of watersports to keep you busy and some spectacular scuba diving spots are easily accessible from the hotel. There’s also the stunning over-water spa which offers tailor-made treatment packages to relax in style.

As a welcome treat, the resort offers 50% off per person on any spa treatment for guests staying more than five nights.
