If you are considering destinations for your honeymoon, Maldives holidays are ofte recommended. Indeed, there are five factors that help to make the archipelago a must for newlyweds in search of sun, sea and relaxation together.

The first is the unrivalled luxury of the accommodation that can be found dotted across the main islands of the archipelago, which consists of more than 1,000 dazzling isles.

A prime example of this is the Kuredu Island Resort in the Lhaviyani Atoll. Newlyweds receive special attention here, as evidenced by the free fruit basket and bottle of sparkling wine you will be welcomed with upon your arrival.

You may wish to enjoy these as you settle into your accommodation, and you will find you can choose between bungalows or villas to stay in. Some of the luxurious facilities you can pick include a four poster bed and Jacuzzi, while the resort also has a selection of restaurants, two swimming pools, on-site spas and a golf course.

It also runs a diving school, which brings us to the second great reason why you should consider Maldives resorts for your honeymoon. Learning something new together could be the perfect way to mark your getaway and there are few more memorable experiences than going scuba diving.

The archipelago is famed the world over for its diving opportunities and the water around the isles is crystal clear, meaning you can easily spot the abundance of marine life the sea is teeming with. Among the creatures to be spotted are whale sharks and manta rays, along with many smaller, brightly coloured fish. You can also travel out to some of the wrecks that dot the area and have a go diving here.

If diving is not your thing, you can explore the wealth of marine life by snorkelling instead, while there are a host of other sporting activities to choose from, including sailing and surfing.

Indeed, hiring a boat and spending a few days island-hopping could be the best way to explore and enjoy a little privacy. Getting some much-needed peace and quiet may be among the main things you are looking forward to on your honeymoon, particularly after all the hustle and bustle of the big day and the months of planning that went into it.

As you sail around, you will come across plenty of secluded spots where you can drop anchor and come onshore to spend a few hours relaxing together under the sun.

You can expect a lot of sunshine during your time in the Maldives as its tropical climate means it is warm throughout the day - so you have plenty of opportunity to get a tan. Between April and October the risk of showers does increase, so you may wish to keep this in mind when planning your trip.

The one thing that you can count on whenever you visit is the chance to be able to enjoy countless sandy beaches. The Maldives sit like glistening jewels within the Indian Ocean and there are many miles of coastline for you to discover.

As you lie back on the soft white sand and admire those views out to sea, you are sure to feel as though you are in paradise - and where else would you rather be on your honeymoon? Why not start planning your romantic getaway today?
