Top 10 Best Ari Atoll Honeymoon Hotels 2020

Most Popular Romantic Resorts in Ari Atoll


July, 2019

Maldives and romance are perfectly combined with each other, and many couples dream to stay on paradise islands for an unforgettable honeymoon. In Ari Atoll you will find more than 20 luxury resorts with water villas that are especially popular among the newlyweds, as well as with beach accommodation that in some cases can give you more privacy than overwater rooms.

Since we have explored and analyzed all of them, we decided to help married couples by choosing the best romantic resorts in Ari Atoll in the list below. Honestly, every resort in the Maldives can offer a lot of fun for a happy honeymoon, but those below offer the best combination of amenities, excellent reviews and value for money.

Most couples prefer to stay at boutique hotels with little or no children's amenities, and all-inclusive meals seem less important for romantic trips. All resorts have luxury water villas, excellent spa, room service and many other facilities to make your honeymoon so special.

1 Kandolhu Maldives

Booking.com

Best Experience:   Honeymoon, House Reef Snorkeling & Diving

Among the best in the world hotels for romance, Kandolhu, a small island resort of only 30 villas, is cleverly arranged to offer maximum privacy yet all within the space of only 200 square meters of this 5 * boutique hotel. Kandolhu Maldives guarantees even more than just your dreams of an unforgettable honeymoon in the Maldives. Soaked in romance, with an incredible house reef snorkeling, couples are bound to fall in love with this cozy island. Those who have heard of Kandholhu Island know that this is one of the best house reef in the Maldives. Only resorts in the country's southern atolls can compare or surpass. An additional draw is clean and soft sandy beaches, all around a small round island whose shape in Maldivian standards is a rarity. So snorkeling is the best you can find between your water villa, the beach and four gourmet restaurants, boasting the highest restaurant-to-room ratio in the Maldives. Read Full Review...

3 Angaga Island Resort and Spa

Angaga Island Resort and Spa
Booking.com

Best Experience:  Couples, Diving, Beach, House Reef Snorkeling, Value

Located in the heart of South Ari Atoll, Angaga Island Resort and Spa is remarkable for its water villas and the best beaches, all that the authentic Maldives has to offer, Angaga is really a paradise island. Palms, beach, coral, lagoon, best house reef snorkeling and diving - it's all the top class here. Add to this a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, excellent value for money, and you will understand why this island is a hit among European guests. The only drawback - the design of the interiors and the hotel is a bit lacking to the standards of its natural environment. While there's not much selection in the buffet, guests can enjoy beach games, water sports, diving, excursions, two bars, a gym, and Balinese spa treatments -- but there's no pool. Spacious rooms are comfy and have personal outdoor areas, but feature dated-looking bamboo furniture (even in newer water villas). Read Full Review...
