Sometimes, simply jetting off to a private-island resort in the Indian Ocean just won’t cut it for a high-romance escape. With any number of secluded resorts dotting the Maldives, Coco Bodu Hithi steps in with a next-level romance package that stands out in one of the world’s most sought-after honeymoon-haven destinations. It begins from the moment you step foot in your villa in the North Malé Atoll, with champagne bubbling in flutes and strawberries dipped in artisan chocolate. Newly ensconced in the privacy of your island home, this is the ideal time to unwind in a traditional flower bath prepared for two, rinsing cares of the world away in exotic style.
During your stay, a number of indulgent and intimate experiences turn the holiday into the extraordinary. Alternately explore and relax with a private sunset cruise around the island one day, and the next blissed out with a lengthy couple’s spa ritual, being pampered from head to toe with massages, body scrubs, face and scalp treatments, and a foot bath. Spend cherished meals together: in the afternoon take off on a private seaplane journey to an isolated sandbank for an unforgettable lunch; back at the resort for dinner, enjoy dining beneath a pergola with a refreshing evening breeze. The cherry on top of this loved-up getaway is the Coco Cinema screening for just the two of you, in an unrivalled location directly on the beach and under the stars with seating made for cuddling and, of course, plenty of popcorn.The Coco Romance Package is priced from US$4,300 for the experience, plus rates from an additional $1,839 for villa accommodation and transfers for two people at Coco Bodu Hithi.
