Jun 2, 2021

TRAVELERS ALL OVER ASIA ARE LOOKING FOR ways to rekindle romance and reconnect with their partners. When it comes to fanning the flames, there’s no better place to go right now than the Maldives. Thanks to highly effective policy measures, effective vaccine rollout, and naturally socially distant geography, the island nation has done an exceptional job of containing COVID-19 and international visitors from around the region are welcome here.

At Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives, it’s especially enticing to plan an extended rendezvous right now. For a limited time from now through July 31, guests can save up to 50 percent on a stay in a stunning Lagoon Water Villa with three daily meals, complimentary return shared transfer, and a fruit basket and bottle of wine upon arrival. Rates start at US$8,600 for double occupancy for an entire stay of a minimum of 14 days.

There are more than enough incredibly romantic diversions to occupy two weeks. The Spa at the Grand Park Kodhipparu has garnered all sorts of awards and accolades for its sophisticated menu of holistic healing treatments. The setting overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean only adds to this soothing experience. Dining at the resort is truly a feast for the senses. Couples can partake in an extensive all-day dining menu at The Edge, snack on Asian and Mediterranean-inspired light bites at Breeze Poolside Dining & Bar, or enjoy an intimate dinner at Firedoor, which specializes in superb meats and seafood cooked to perfection on a custom-built Josper grill.

All this romantic indulgence is made even sweeter with the knowledge that it has a low impact on the planet. From banning wasteful plastic straws to planting a coral garden to revitalize the house reef to producing its own drinking water to launching a solar system on Earth Day, the resort goes the extra mile when it comes to being green. In order to help build a more sustainable future, the resort plants a tree for every online booking as part of the Room for Trees program. It’s all part of a broader vision to make the world a better place, one stay at a time.
