With Romantic Love Boat Sailing, a traditional Maldivian boat takes you back to times long forgotten. Just the two of you, toasting your love while watching mother nature paint the sky with incredible sunset hues. With luck, you may also spot dolphins playing in the bow wave.

Watching the night sky from a dhoni is an experience not to be missed. During the Romantic Star Gazing Cruise, you will be mesmerised by the endless star-studded sky while enjoying non-alcoholic bubbly and canapés. There is simply nowhere quite like the Maldives for stargazing – away from light pollution.
For the ultimate secluded bolthole, elope to a private island with your loved one and sleep under the stars surrounded by the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore and an incredible sunrise to start your day – a truly unforgettable bucket list experience.
Love & Spa
For pure romantic indulgence, enjoy a Him and Her Herbal Oil Body Massage at Duniye Spa. This pampering couple’s treatment is a restoring and calming Balinese Massage, carried out in a candlelit room with the aromas of pure essential oils filling the air.
