    The FH and I want to go to Maldives for our honeymoon! It looks gorgeous.. resorts offer things to do like boat rides, scuba diving, snorkeling, shopping, spa, etc. plus you don’t have to constantly be doing something! How amazing would it be to relax and catch some sun in your own private hut on the water!

    We plan on going several months after our wedding, that way we can take more time off work. We are already taking a long weekend for our wedding and the rest of the following week off for a mini-moon to Bedford Springs, PA which is super amazing (bc of a deal offered by our hopefully venue!) πŸ™‚

    I have been to Maldives, Croatia and Mauritius and would suggest Maldives! We are going there for our honeymoon as well! But am originally from Croatia so naturally I love it there! If you are going to Croatia, look into Dubrovnik and the islands Brac and Hvar.. Pm me if you need advice πŸ™‚

    I voted for Croatia and Italy… if you are worried about the weather and being bored in Maldives, then somewhere with options is always a winner πŸ™‚

    That said, I dream of going to the Maldives!

    @lilcshelli:  I say the Maldives b/c I’m biased but you can stop in Dubai or Abu Dhabi on your way there. There are plenty of things to do in those places then you can totally relax in the Maldives. That’s what my friend just did and she said it was amazing.

    First time we went we stayed at the Hilton Irufushi which was amazing, so have really high hopes for this one too!

    @lilcshelli:  We just went to the Maldives for our Honeymoon and let me tell you – boring is definitely not the word to describe it.  It was the most relaxing most beautiful vacation I have ever been on! Plus they have a lot of activities to keep you entertained if you do get bored for some odd reason!

    Also – since you’re in NY its easier to get to the Maldives than it is from Chicago.  We flew from Chicago to New York, New York to Dubai then Dubai to Male (capital of Maldives)… then took a seaplane to our island!

    Conrad Rangali,- we ended up getting a free upgrade to a water villa because our original reservation was to stay at Waldorf – but a few months before we were supposed to go we received an email stating that the Waldorf in the Maldives won’t be Waldorf anymore and won’t be a part of HiltonHonors so they gave us an option of the Conrad or IruFushi? if that’s how you spell it – and they would accomodate a water villa since that is what our original reservation was for πŸ™‚

    I have been to Maldives, Italy and Croatia, they are all beautiful in different ways, In Italy we have also been to Venice, Verona, Milan and Rome, I love Italy but I personally wouldn’t chose it for a honeymoon.

    We went to Maldives in may (monsoon) and weather is all luck, you could see storms coming, they soon passed, food was amazing, checkout my photos! πŸ˜‰

    We had 7 nights in the Maldives, definately didn’t get board! There are lots of excursions to do, we snorkelled from our watervilla everyday.Maldives (Iru fushi):
