This change brought with it a wave of interest from all over the world and this untouched idyllic haven became famous for those who wanted to escape from it all. As it follows, it was only a short time before the Maldives and Honeymoon would become two synonymous terms. People wanted quiet time away from family and friends so they could settle into their marriage undisturbed and that is what they got in their own slice of heaven.
The tides are changing though – as it does with all destinations. People aren’t afraid to travel to the unknown and children will spend as much time on planes as they will trains. Those early doors honeymooners now have families and given that the Maldives is much easier to access than ever before, it is no wonder that the hotels are responding. There are kids’ clubs, tennis courts, football fields, pottery classes and climbing walls on land. Below the surface you can explore the marine life with snorkeling, glass kayaks, diving and even restaurants to name a few. It is no longer about making sure the couple falls in love but that the whole family do too – and they are.
