Underwater Love at the heart of Diva Maldives

Inspired by the heart-stopping marine landscape of the azure archipelago, Diva Maldives has upped the romantic ante with four brand new dream wedding experiences, including an exhilarating underwater wedding blessing ceremony. Land-lubber lovers wishing to celebrate their union can also choose from imaginatively-designed packages including a new honeymoon experience.

The warm waters of the Indian Ocean provide an unforgettable setting for Diva’s spellbinding Underwater Wedding Ceremony. As their nuptials are blessed, witnessed by an aquamarine seascape of vibrant corals and kaleidoscopic of exotic marine life, couples experience a deep connection to their extraordinary wedding venue. The couple’s magical moments will be captured by an underwater photographer, before they return to the shore to toast their future happiness with chilled bubbly and canapés.

Couples choosing the resort’s Castaway Wedding meanwhile will be whisked away aboard a traditional Dhoni to say their vows on a deserted islet, against the unbroken backdrop of the spectacular Indian Ocean sunset. For the Island Dream Wedding, a secluded stretch of Diva’s pristine white sands is transformed into a ‘love garden’, garlanded with tropical flowers and complete with a love garden hammock for two. From their hammock, the bride and groom can chill out with Coconut Lover cocktails and enjoy a private performance of traditional Bodu Beru drumming and dancing.

The timeless Maldivian Diva package gives the bride and groom the unique opportunity to experience elements of traditional Maldivian wedding rituals, including saying ‘I do’ in Dhivehi, the local language, and wearing customary Maldivian dress during the tropical island ceremony. To wish their beloved a future of happiness and prosperity, couples are invited to seal their “prayers to the ocean” in a coconut shell before releasing them into the endless crystal waters.  

Each non-religious blessing is marked with a palm tree planting ceremony and traditional Bodu Beru dancing, and after a sunset cruise on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni, the couple’s first night begins with an exclusive romantic dinner under the stars in their favourite corner of the island. A heavenly aromatherapy bath, decorated with Maldivian flowers, awaits when they return to their villa.

The first day of the rest of their lives begins with a special in-villa breakfast, and a blissful ‘Romantic Discovery’ couples’ massage at Infinity Spa follows.

Honeymooners are greeted with warm Maldivian smiles and Champagne as soon as they step foot on the island of untouched beauty. As part of the new honeymoon package, newlyweds are treated to a signature Adam & Eve massage, facial and floral bath spa package during the day and a romantic dinner with butler service on the beach before they sail off into the sunset.
