The Maldives is a picture-perfect collection of islands that drip with exotic romanticism, which is why they have become the honeymoon destination of choice for so many couples. It’s with good reason, as its palm-flecked beaches, crystal-clear waters and ridiculously vibrant reefs are even more brilliant in person. If you’re looking for a ripe slice of island intimacy, then Constance Moofushi is one of the best resorts for it. Here’s three of our favourite reasons why!
1. You can have a romantic meal on the beach. Alizée is Moofushi’s beautiful laid-back beach restaurant, where you can dine under the shade of a swaying palms. With only a handful of tables on the sand, it’s tranquil beach intimacy at its best. The tables are decorated with tealights in jars and fresh flowers from the island garden, while sommeliers are on hand to expertly pair wine with whatever you choose from the menu, which includes a selection of seafood, grilled fish and meat. With the limited number of tables, we’d advise booking in advance.
2. Intimate dining isn’t limited to its restaurants at Constance Moofushi. If you really want to turn up the romance, there’s no end to the number of different private dining spots that can be set up for you and your loved one around the island. Whether it’s on a tiny jetty lit be candles and with a heart drawn into the sand, or on your own personal strip of sand, this is one setting for a meal you won’t be forgetting for a while!
3. The spa is incredible. Constance hotels are renowned for their impressive spa treatments and you’ll find evidence of that at Constance Moofushi. As well as the array of treatments on offer (we highly recommend a couple’s massage), its U Spa is also perfectly placed to both relax and captivate you. It has glass floors underneath the massage tables, so you can witness myriad marine life swimming beneath you as you’re being pampered. We wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to keep your eyes open, so you didn’t miss anything below!
