We are looking to book our honeymoon in the next few days. We get married at the end of August and plan on spending a few days in Dubai then on to the Maldives. We are having some problems finding a resort..... Originally we had looked at Meeru (mainly because the agent was pushing it) however we have since seen that there are some very mixed reviews for the island. Next of the list was the Full Moon, a friend suggested it to us, but again soem mixed reviews.
Next stop .... Royal Island Resort and Spa (becasue it was mentioned on the site) - any thoughts (other than perhaps it should be a 4* rather than a 5*)?
We are looking for a romantic get away with nice beaches, nice food and sun (although I know it can get a bit wet in the Maldives at this time of year).
We have allocated around £5K for the trip in total, and the hotel in Dubai (The Grosvnor) is around £700 for the two of us.... so the rest needs to be spent on flights (quote is currently at around £1300) That shoud leave around £3K (and a bit for somewhere exceptional) for the Maldives resort.
Your help would be much appreciated
