My new husband and I chose Jumeirah Vittaveli for our week-long honeymoon. Based on our research before arrival, we had very high expectations. We are pleased to say that Jumeirah exceeded these expectations in every aspect of our stay.
The setting was truly amazing, with postcard-perfect views in all directions. We stayed in a lagoon villa (sunset side) which was large and luxurious. Turtle 1 villa (right at the end of the pier), felt completely isolated and private, which was perfect for a honeymoon. The private pool was gorgeous, but snorkeling directly from the villa was even better! The marine life was abundant and beautiful. As buggies were readily available for transport, the distance of the villa from the rest of the island was not an issue at all.
We wanted for nothing during the stay, and the friendly, attentive staff worked hard to anticipate our every need and desire. They appeared to really enjoy and take pride in providing exceptional service We were attended to from the moment we stepped foot through the customs gate at the airport, up until we walked back in at the end of our trip. Our main buggy-driver Azzam even accompanied us to check in on his day off in Male!
The full board package allowed us to eat in all the restaurants (but not the bar) at meal times, though we did end up spending more than we expected in surcharges at both Mu Grill and Fenesse. The buffet and a la carte breakfast options were a highlight. The cocktails were great and surprisingly reasonably priced compared to bars in Australia. The private dining experience (including bottle of Moet) was decadent and beautiful.
During our stay, we used the Talise Spa (twice, because the couples massage was so good, we just had to go back), gym, kayaks, bar, shisha pipes and, of course, snorkeling equipment. Each experience was faultless and thoroughly enjoyable.
We highly recommend Jumeirah Vittaveli for a luxurious Maldives honeymoon experience.
