Given that these islands are some of the most romantic on the planet — seriously, there’s almost no place you can go in the entire country without feeling like the best kind of castaways — deluxe honeymoon digs are the norm. But even by those standards, the newer Jumeirah Dhevanafushi, set on two tiny isles, is hard to beat. Choose between overwater ("Ocean Revives") or beachfront ("Beach Revives") villas and you’ll enjoy private water access, a personal pool, butler service, indoor/outdoor showers and living spaces that give way to the most spectacular natural views imaginable.
Equally breathtaking is the overwater Talise spa. Here, massage tables are positioned over a glass floor, making it difficult to close your eyes as a huge moray eel, a baby shark and a family of Technicolor parrot fish swim beneath you (room rates start at $1,000 a night; jumeirah.com).
