Coinciding with the resort’s fifth anniversary and the Day of Love, Vakkaru Maldives has put together its ‘All You Need is Love’ list of romantic gestures for lovers, keeping couples occupied from dawn till dusk in paradise.
Begin the day with love ringing in the air by enjoying the sunrise over a decadent floating breakfast. Set in the confines of your luxury villa, the sumptuous spread of delicacies will be hosted at the private pool.
Kick-start the day by heading over to the Merana Spa for an indulgent His & Hers spa treatment. The exclusive journey will start with a highly-nourishing body scrub, followed by a soothing couple’s massage infused with aromatic essential oils of your preference. Next up is a soak in the silky milk bath while delighting in a glass of champagne and an expensive fruit platter to tantalize the tastebuds. The treatment is concluded with a calming sound healing session that helps to deepen relationships by creating new neural pathways. At the end of the spa journey, both you and your significant other will be imbued with feelings of joy and gratitude for one another.
To disseminate your love further, duos can join in conservation efforts by doing their part for the environment. Vakkaru Maldives carries out a coral propagation programme and couples can adopt their very own coral frame and receive their adoption certificate. The coral frames are used to create artificial reefs that will in the future house hundreds of reef fish and invertebrate species that live around the island. What better way to bloom love than by helping marine life thrive underwater?
The dusk hour in the Maldives is the perfect time to cruise the waters with the colourful display of hues paving way for a romantic ambience. Set course on the Princess 54 luxury yacht and take a turn around the pristine Baa atoll with your other half. Bubbly champagne and savoury canapes will set the mood further for a cherished moment out on the sea.
To end the Lovers Day on a good note, an extravagant yet intimate dinner is necessary and Vakkaru Maldives leaves no stone unturned to make this happen. With five exceptional dining options available for couples, you can lavishly accommodate to the requisites of your partner on the island.
