Romantic Starlit Activities at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa, the Ultimate Honeymoon Destination
It is time for soon-to-be newlyweds to stop stressing and start dreaming; to indulge in the descriptions of the new starlit activities at the exclusive Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa and fantasise about a honeymoon that ticks all the boxes.
The assortment of romantic starlit adventures, created just for couples, includes night time snorkelling, a starlit cruise, and a Maldivian cooking class and fishing adventure. These beg the question: where better to start your new life together than this remote paradise island, miles from its closest neighbour, where you feel as if you are the only ones on the island.
Boasting one of the healthiest reefs in the Maldives, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is one of the leading dive resorts in the country. The 360 degree house reef can be accessed straight from jumping of the resort’s jetty where marine creatures such as turtles, lionfish, eagle rays, flying fish and clown fish can be seen in abundance. It is at night, however, that the magic really happens.
After dark, Park Hyatt Maldives’ house reef becomes a parallel world, ready to be explored by loved up couples seeking adventure. On the one-hour guided night-time snorkel tour, couples get the chance to see the reef like never before as the ‘night owls’ of the sea come out to play.
One of the most captivating possible sightings is the effect of the bioluminescent plankton. These fascinating creatures light up the crystal clear water creating the effect of a sea of twinkling stars, a truly magnificent sight as the gentle waves appear to glow in the dark and arms stroking through the water become radiant wings. Underwater lanterns are provided by the resort as the moonlit sea becomes a tranquil paradise.
For couples wanting to enjoy the Indian Ocean above water, Park Hyatt also offers a romantic starlit sailing trip aboard Hadahaa’s traditional Maldivian Dhoni, one of the oldest known seas vessels in the Maldives.
Couples will enjoy a magical journey through the Maldivian waters, enjoying the sun setting on the horizon as they go, whist sipping champagne and toasting to a lifetime of love. As the sun falls beneath the turquoise waters, eyes will be drawn upwards as the night sky comes to life with the majesty of the evening’s stars. The Maldives enjoy some of the clearest skies in the world with zero light pollution; the resort’s astronomic experts will be on hand to guide guests through the constellations, including stars and planets that are not visible back home.
For those wanting to experience a little more of the Maldivian culture, a Maldivian cooking class and fishing adventure is a must. In this one-of-a-kind experience couples are invited to join the island’s master chef for a culinary class in the middle of the open kitchen at the fabulous Island Grill. He will demonstrate how to create the perfect marinade as well as how to grind and mix spices for use as a seasoning, leaving guests as experts in how to season fresh locally caught fish.
As with the starlit cruise, the real journey begins the sun goes down. Couples are taken fishing on the traditional Dhoni where they will be taught how to fish using the customary Maldivian hand line, hook, sinker and bait. Upon return to The Island Grill, they will enjoy a front row seat to see their fish cooked to perfection, soaking up the surroundings of the Maldives encompased by gently lapping shores and fragrant plants as their mouthwatering meal is cooked.
There is something so utterly romantic about the remoteness and tranquillity of the Maldives at night. Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa has utilised this to create unspoiled series of starlit activities perfect for honeymoon and other couples in love.
