Aparna and Aayush, Maldives
Sun, sea and luscious food were the constant companions of the newly married couple during their honeymoon spent at Taj Exotica, Maldives.
From lip-smacking seafood to sun-kissed surroundings, Aparna and Aayush’s relaxed honeymoon is reason enough for you to book your tickets to the Maldives!
How we Met
Aayush first set eyes on me at the gym we both went to and then came up to talk to me at a party thrown by a common friend. We dated for a while and got married this February. After our grand wedding and all the festivities, we wanted some time out to just relax. So we planned a week on holiday in the Maldives.
Our honeymoon planning was woefully last minute. Also, we’d wanted a longer trip but there were professional commitments and time constraints so it was whittled down to a week. The Maldives was an obvious choice for both us beach bums.
Booking a villa at the Taj Exotica as the best decision we took. We had a private pool and a staircase that went straight from our room to the lagoon. It was a little piece of paradise with impeccable service and drool worthy ambiance. We had absolutely no intention of going sightseeing so we were just blissed out in our little world, with the sea around us.
The food at the Taj Exotica is outstanding. My favorite was the Tom Kha Talay with its thick coconut milk base! Aayush’s favorite was the Malabar fish curry which he enjoyed till the last morsel. The resort also had several private settings around the island which were very romantic. After spending a day being pampered at the spa, Aayush arranged for a private dinner at one of those with romantic lights, soft music and floral arrangements. After our meal when we went back to our room, we were surprised to see our bathtub filled with bubbles and roses.
Advice for couples planning their honeymoon in the Maldives
I’d suggest couples stick to seafood as the food is made with the freshest of ingredients. Also, carry a big tub of sunscreen to protect yourself from the harsh rays of the run. Take advantage of the snorkeling kit that is provided by the resort but avoid going snorkeling between 11 am -4 pm as the sun is at its peak then.
