Hoteliers here have cynically exploited the islands’ popularity with honeymooners to ratchet up prices (with an insidious unspoken “If you really love her . . . you’ll pay” thrown in). The five-star Velassaru, however, is bucking the trend. It will open in February with a 25% discount on all its colonially cool villas for the first year.

Quality is assured, as it is owned by Universal, the company behind phenomenally successful resorts such as Huvafen Fushi, also in the Maldives, with its underwater spa. Emirates have flights via Dubai from £565. You can book a package with Turquoise Holidays which has the further attraction of a seven-nights-for-five deal between April 20 and July 20, bringing the price of a week down to £1,094pp, B&B.
