It is no wonder that the Maldives is a top honeymoon destination. The sun-drenched islands dotted in the Indian ocean are a magnet for those seeking ultra relaxation and a taste of island life. It’s the place for couples to unwind and embrace sandy toes and hammock time. Each island in the Maldives has its own personality and style, but ultimately paradise awaits at whichever resort you choose.
So, what to pack?
When packing, remember you’re off to a desert island so most time will be spent in swimwear, oversized sun hats and shades. Pack lots of beach dresses and coverups. For dinner flowing silky maxis, patterned cotton dresses or oversized linen is en vogue. Focus on light, breathable fabrics with an injection of colour to reflect your tropical surroundings. A number of resorts such as Gili Langkanfushi have adopted a ‘no shoes, no news’ policy (best to check before you travel) whereas others flat sandals and wedges will work perfectly.
