Maldives retains most popular honeymoon destination title
Maldives has once again been named the most popular destination in the world for honeymooners.
Emirates Holidays, the tour operator of the internationally renowned Emirates airline, says that the idyllic beach destination has seen an incredible 170 percent increase in interest year on year. Maldives, a popular stopover for Emirates airline flights to and from Europe and Middle East, retains the title from last year.
Here are the top honeymoon destinations for 2017, according to Emirates:
- Sri Lanka
- Indonesia (Bali)
- United States
- Saint Lucia
Emirates’ findings are in line with a recent survey by Zurich-based luxury tour operator Kuoni, which also revealed that the Maldives was their most popular holiday destination for newlyweds both this year and for 2016.
Maldives is amongst the most sought after destinations by celebrity travellers from across the world.
The likes of English singer and television presenter Rochelle Humes and her husband Marvin, and British TV personality Billie Faiers have all declared this as their favourite part of the world for a relaxing getaway. Another British singer Perrie Edwards, English actress Millie Mackintosh and the Beckhams have also fell in love with the white sands and the blue skies of the Maldives.
