Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of resorts in the Maldives presents the ideal backdrop and setting to celebrate love with curated romance packages to make your escape truly magical.

The resorts invite guests to cherish time for each other this Valentine's Day - from intoxicating adventures on the water to sun-kissed spa days and starry-night dinners, romance is never far away at these resorts in the Maldives that bring all the ingredients together to create a vista for a perfect romantic rendezvous, from exchanging the words ‘I Do’ at JW Marriott Maldives Resort & Spa, getting wed in style at W Maldives, designing an amorous beach proposal at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, to embarking on a secluded honeymoon at The Westin Maldives Miriandhoo Resort. Each of the resorts is located on its’ own private island, creating an exclusive and peaceful environment, almost as though they were designed for couples to spend carefree time together where they can delight in moonlit picnics, soothing massages, and crafted experiences in one of the world’s most romantic retreats.
