January 2023: The lockdown excuse has reached its expiration date and it’s time to wow your lover with a neatly curated week of romance. Let the adept team at The Residence Maldives plan various experiences to mark seven days of Valentine’s week this year, and enjoy an unforgettable vacation, just the two of you.
Take the plunge and keep it cosy
The water pool villa is what vacation dreams are made of. Check into the deluxe room tucked away in one of the most private locations of the resort and indulge your senses with the sights and sounds of the Indian ocean. After a round of the room, step onto the deck and take in the beauty of gentle waves lapping right at the doorsteps. Take the plunge with your partner into the pool and soak in the Maldivian sun. Let the gentle breeze be the conversation starter as you witness schools of fish flitting between vivid coral reefs in the glistening waters. Don’t forget to indulge in the quintessential breakfast basket in the pool.
Confess your love in the Indian Ocean
It’s not for nothing that Maldives is called the lover’s paradise. Make a grand gesture of love on the beachfront, over the ocean, or by the pool. A beach dinner includes cocktails and gourmet canapes, followed by an intimate candlelit dinner for two under a canopy of stars with the sound of waves for company. Better still, whisk her away to a castaway island in the Indian Ocean for a day of a private dining experience and picnic. The chef and his team ensure that all your wishes are turned into a reality.
Rejuvenate together at the Clarins Spa
The grind of daily life in the city not just takes a toll on the health and mental well-being, but also erodes the moments that lovers should spend together. Make it up for all the lost time by stepping into a sanctuary of wellness at the first and only Spa by Clarins in the Maldives. The most recommended couple spa treatment can be experienced in the privacy of a pavilion at the spa, which is seated at the end of a jetty, overlooking the lagoon and coral reefs. The treatment begins with a foot bath ritual, followed by an exfoliating Clarins body polisher. A Clarins melting honey body massage relieves stress. The two-hour romantic journey concludes with a customized facial. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or herbal tea together at the end. With the globally renowned Clarins’ spa products, active ingredients with plant origins, and formulas developed for the expert hands, the treatment is pure indulgence.
Feel the adrenaline rush
Beach vacations are for lazy couples, says who? Those who love adventure can avail motorised water sports activities that include jet ski rides, jet ski safari that also includes snorkelling or sandbank activities, and banana rides. Other water-based activities include wakeboarding, water skiing, kneeboarding, parasailing, and windsurfing.
Discover the beauty of underwater biodiversity
Who can forget the life-altering moment of deep-sea diving in the film, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? It’s an experience that must be tried with your partner. Breathe together underwater, speak in sign language and discover a world that you have in photographs. The diving begins with a theory lesson, and the experience includes two sessions, one in confined water and the other an open-water dive as
diving experts accompany you on your quest to uncover the colourful life underwater. The scuba diving session also includes full equipment rental.
You can also set sail on a traditional Maldivian dhoni to explore the unspoiled coral reefs followed by a snorkelling expedition. Discover the beauty of multi-hued coral reefs, and the rich underwater biodiversity of the Maldives in a 90-minute guided excursion.
Renew your vows in a dreamy barefoot ceremony
There is something about flowy white gowns, a beach, and romance. Very few can claim to not imagine getting hitched in a dreamy setting by the beach. Your and your partner’s dream can turn into reality at The Residence Maldives, as the wedding planner can put together a beautiful ceremony (symbolic, non-legally binding), wedding cake, dining, decoration, photography, and entertainment. Renew your vows amid magical sunset and beats of traditional bodhu beru drums. You also get to seal your love with a symbolic wedding certificate!
Sail along the playful dolphins
The sunset over the Indian Ocean is no less than a page from an art book. Slip a ring into her finger as you sail in the ocean as wild spinner dolphins and bottlenose dolphins frolic along in the waves. What can be better than celebrating your togetherness with a glass of bubbly during the 90 minutes of the dolphin cruise?
