JEALOUS!! We looked into it but with buying a house, moving countries (which means buying all new stuff including cars), and paying for the wedding ourselves, our honeymoon budget is sad… I hope you have fun though, I hope to go someday!!

@indyJEEP: That looks AMAZING! If you don’t mind me asking, approximately how much does a week’s vacation cost there including room & airfare from CA? Feel free to PM me if you don’t want to share on the board. I want to start dreaming of our next vacation already 🙂

We thought of having our honeymoon there. But when we looked into it we realised June was the wrong time of year to go, well we could but there’s more risk of storms etc. Plus we can’t afford it, even to go in June it would have cost £6000 / $9500. My friends went in November and the weather was lovely, though the week after when I looked at the weather there it was raining all week. February wiill be a perfect time to go. We thought about going somewhere that was at least half board or even all inclusive so that you don’t have to pay the high food and drink prices.

We had a couple at the Conrad in the Maldives last summer. They liked the resort, but they did have a lot of rain while they were there. Hopefully you’ll have great weather for your honeymoon. It really is a once in a lifetime destination.

@indyJEEP: I’m also in the bay area and have been researching the flights.  It looks like Singapore Airlines and Emirates are the two major airlines to provide connecting flights with either 1 or 2 stops.  Perhaps you can stay in one city either Singapore or Dubai for a couple of nights before your Maldives trip.  We are going to break ours with a stay in Dubai for a couple of nights.  I could not sit on the plane longer than the already 15 hour flight to Dubai.  As you move closer to the date, prices tend to get lower.

We’re going to the Maldives in May!!!!  Its a little risky with the weather but from researching like crazy before booking its a hit or miss whether its rainy season or not.  So we’re just hoping for good weather.  We’re flying from Toronto, Canada which was going to be really pricey.  After looking around more and more we decided to fly to London first (cheaper) and spend a few days there and head to the Madlives.  The Maldives itself including the flight from London  and seaplane to the island worked out to be $5200 Canadian for 7 nights.  We got flights on sale to London for $632 each return!  So it will be a costly trip with spending in London but in looking at 2 weeks in Aruba etc it was the same price.

We’re staying at the Kurumathi, its all inclusive, restuarnts not buffet and we got upgraded to a deluxe beach bungalow!  SO excited.

Yeah my brother and sister-in-law were there on their honeymoon celebration. They loved the place. Their honeymoon was arranged by one of the top honeymoon planner companies http://www.indianhoneymoonpackages.com which are very much experienced in arranging honeymoon trips. They stayed in Paradise Island Resort & Spa***** and enjoyed a lot.
