Went on this excellent honeymoon trip to Maldives with my wife through Thrillophilia. Loved the way they have organized the tour, it was just perfect. Once we landed, we took a speedboat ride to our hotel. Loved the decoration they did for our room. We had a wonderful candlelight dinner by the beach which was really amazing. But the best part came when both of us went for that couple Swedish spa massage. It was just wow! The dolphin watching tour was another best memory from the trip. We got to see dolphins playing which was amazing. It was definitely worth the money. The beaches were lovely and we used to spend most of the time in the evening watching the sunset together. Food was really great, I should say. Well done guys, you did make our honeymoon a special one.
I had the best honeymoon days there by doing so many water activities like scuba diving and snorkeling, island hopping, catamaran cruise and parasailing. It is an inspiring place and good to see if you are a true lover of nature. There were plenty of food options and shopping centres. This is a perfect spot for honeymoon.
One of the brilliant itineraries I have ever seen was the one for Maldives honeymoon tour. Truly, it was a great trip for us and we thank everyone co-operated with us in the best way. My wife had some problem with the climate but otherwise, it was completely a nice trip. Thanks guys for suggesting is Maldives We are glad that we choose Maldives for our first honeymoon and we are glad that we choose Maldives instead of Seychelles, which was our earlier first choice.
After complete planning only, I and my wife took the Maldives honeymoon package and we are very satisfied by the service from the Thrillophilia and the local tour operator and its staff. Peaceful atmosphere on the island touched our hearts. Costly rooms but worth as we could see the sea very well from the room. Food was good- there were a lot of good restaurants near the beach. It was pretty awesome to be there.
I am so glad I got the best Maldives honeymoon package which made both us extremely happy. Both of us fell in love with the country that has the most crystal clear water and short islands possessing beautiful landscapes. Every bit of the honeymoon tour was perfect. Clean beaches, cozy decorated bedroom at the hotel and very delicious food at the restaurants. It is a great space to click so many wonderful pictures with your beloved. We both enjoyed the speedboat trip and island hopping- both were a different experience altogether. There were not many adventure activities in Maldives and I think we missed the fun part of the tour because of the lack of activities.
