How does the idea of dining and sleeping under the ocean, without getting wet, look to you? It definitely must be a big yes! Thankfully, the people at Ithaa envisaged the same and constructed an undersea glass restaurant and resort near the gorgeous Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, the very first of its kind. Dining underneath the glass roof will make you feel like being inside an aquarium, but the only difference is, that the fishes are on the outside. The phenomenal panorama of the underwater kingdom will awe you on your honeymoon in Maldives, especially during the night when it is said to be more breathtaking.

6. Visit Bioluminescent Plankton Beach

Best Time to Visit Maldives For Honeymoon

With the temperature fluctuating between 25 to 31 degrees Celsius, Maldives experiences a tropical climate all year round. The morning is warm and sunny, there are unpredictable showers that last only a few minutes, the air is humid, and cool sea breezes blow during the evening. However, December to April has been voted as the best time to visit the archipelago. Since the rainy season is almost over by then, these months experience a drier climate with fewer showers and less intense thunderstorms. The calm waters during April make it the most favourable month for indulging in water activities.

If you are planning a last-minute honeymoon in Maldives from India, it is the perfect place to visit because of the on-arrival visa policy for Indians. Read to know more about Maldives Visa for Indians.

Bestowed with a spellbinding backdrop, the romantic honeymoon in Maldives promises to give lovebirds infinite magical moments and a dreamy honeymoon that you will cherish throughout your lives. Let this tropical paradise cast its charm on you and strengthen your love for eternity.
