LOCATION In the South Ari Atoll, one of the bigger clusters of islands, a seaplane hop from the airport at Male.

WHO BOOKS? Chilled-out honeymooners who don't want to worry about a thing - least of all the bill - as the hotel's all inclusive.

ROOM LUST Rooms are exactly what you want from a desert island. Thatched roofs, hammocks and a powerful outdoor shower. Décor follows the 'simple, yet chic' theme with lots of natural fibres and cheery nods to Maldivian culture. Pops of fuchsia and hip leather trunk-boxes doubling as mini-bars add a contemporary feel. All rooms are equipped with nifty Mac minis so there's no shortage of on-screen entertainment. Not that you'll just be watching TV…

THE ULTIMATE HONEYMOON HOTELS IN THE MALDIVES 

RELAX As one of the smaller, more intimate islands in the Maldives, nothing is too far away… most importantly the spa! The overwater Spa de Constance is on a jetty in the centre of the island and offers guests an oasis of calm and a wide range of indulgent treatments. Don't miss the heavenly four hands massage, which left us so blissed-out we had to be carried to the relaxation area.

ACTION! Divers will be delighted- the Ari Atoll is renowned for its subterranean splendour; desert island day trips, night fishing and dolphin spotting are also worth squeezing in.

THE INDIAN OCEAN'S BEST HONEYMOON HOTSPOTS

WE LOVE The choice- it might be all-inclusive but that doesn't mean boring buffets for every meal. There's a range of a la carte options- not to mention 100 wines and an extensive cocktail list!

GET THERE 30-minute sea plane from Male.
