Classic Maldives Honeymoon with a Dubai Stopover hero

Classic Maldives Honeymoon with a Dubai Stopover

Inspirational island getaway honeymoon to United Arab Emirates and Maldives

An exceptional twin-centre honeymoon combining a fun-packed stopover in Dubai, coupled with a week in a blissful tropical island paradise. Enjoy scenic locations, exquisite dining, unique guest experiences and plenty of 'me' time in top-notch resorts. One of Dubai's iconic hotels, the Ritz-Carlton Dubai, set right beside the Gulf, is ideally located for taking maximum advantage of the wealth of attractions and excursions on offer in this non-stop city. Head to the Creek to discover old Dubai and its atmospheric gold and spice souks, venture downtown for a visit to the top of the Burj Khalifa, or take a trip out to the Aquaventure water park on Palm Jumeirah.

When you've had your fill of excitement, return to the hotel's tranquil pool and gardens, perhaps to savour its famous Afternoon Tea. Then fly directly to the Maldives for a stay at another legendary resort, the boutique Baros Maldives. Arrive by speedboat at this haven of relaxation, where the lagoon and house reef can be explored direct from the beach. Expect plentiful snorkelling and diving, but also indulge in tailored programs and private excursions with the resident marine biologist, including coral planting and underwater photo shoots. Multiple over-water fine dining options and romantic sandbank picnics complete the incomparable hospitality at this unique hotel.
