Looking for resort for honeymoon - November 2012

Hello, we are looking for a resort for our honeymoon. This will be our first time to the Maldives and are looking at going at the end of November 2012 (in about 1.5 months)

We plan on going for 4 nights, 6 days. We would enjoy (in order of preference):

-Water Villa with excellent house reef

-Secluded island with romantic atmosphere

-Good food

-Good beach with interesting water excursions

I also have a question with regards to boarding -- are most resorts typically no board? (ie. you pay for everything) Or do you usually get half-board, and what does that typically include.

I know we did not include the budget, as I wanted to save this for the end. We are willing to pay up to $1000 per night all-inclusive (room, food, drinks, activities, etc.) for the two of us, however we are hoping the experts on here can give us a 'luxury' option @$1000 as well as a 'value' option @ $500.

Thanks,

Steve

you have left it much too late to be fishing in the deep like this , Steve . i suggest that you waste not a minute to check with a reputed maldive specialist travel agent (you can pm richard here in the forum under PurelyMaldives) and have him pull up a list of resorts that have openings at all and that match your criteria.

return here with the short list of actual options and we will be happy to opine.

also , please be more specific what kind of activities you want to be included in your budget.

Hey everyone,

So I've been gathering some quotes and come up with the following information:

6 nights (includes accommodation & seaplane transfer)

Athuruga - Water Villa ($3000 per person)

Angsana Ihuru - Beachfront Villa ($1700 per person)

W Retreat - Water Villa ($3500 per person)

I have a couple questions -- I've read that if budget is not a concern, then Athuruga > Angsana ... what about Athuruga vs. W Retreat? Also many people say Constance Moofushi is very good considering the expansiveness of their AI, should I consider Moofushi?

Sorry, I forgot to ask about AI for Athuruga...can anyone comment on whether this was good value to them? We are not big drinkers -- I would typically have 1 or 2 cocktail/beer with my dinner and my OH would order a half bottle of wine. We would also like the flexibility of eating anywhere/anything on the island and not be restricted to buffets.
