What is an adults-only resort?

An adults-only resort is a boutique hotel or island retreat that welcomes guests 18 and over, creating an intimate, child-free environment that is ideal for discerning travelers. These sanctuaries provide a serene ambiance tailored for couples and adults seeking relaxation and privacy without the sounds of little ones at play.

What is the point of an adults-only resort?

More than just a vacation, adults-only resorts offer a rejuvenating experience custom-designed for quality couple time. From romantic overwater bungalows to candlelit dinners on the beach, every detail is curated to strengthen your connection. Leave the stresses of daily life behind and fully immerse yourselves in each other’s company amidst stunning natural surroundings.

Can singles stay at adults-only resorts in the Maldives?

While these havens are tailored primarily for couples, many adults-only resorts in the Maldives also welcome solo travelers seeking a serene escape. World-class service and lavish amenities await, creating a blissful setting for individual rejuvenation amidst an island paradise free of the family crowd.

What makes a Maldives adults-only resort the ideal choice?

The Maldives islands are universally renowned for their unmatched beauty – from brilliant turquoise waters to swaying palms on powder-white shores. Combine this breathtaking paradise with the exclusivity of an adults-only concept, and you have the ultimate setting to rekindle intimacy. Prepare to be pampered with discreet yet attentive service, secluded accommodations, and untamed natural splendor that feels like it’s been made for just the two of you.

Can unmarried couples share a room in the Maldives?

Absolutely. While the Maldives is an Islamic nation, most resorts are privately owned and cater to global guests. Unmarried couples are warmly welcomed and can share accommodations without issue at the vast majority of luxury hotels and adults-only resorts in the Maldives. We send thousands of couples a year away and so are well-placed to help choose the best Maldives resorts for couples.

This is also why we’re able to send LGBTQ+ couples to the Maldives – each island resort is essentially its own private fiefdom, where the rules of the greater country do not apply. This also applies to alcohol – although technically illegal, it pours freely at each of the country’s luxurious island resorts. We have comprehensive expertise when it comes to the Maldives’ most gay-friendly hotels – read our blog post on The law vs. reality: Gay travel to the Maldives or get in touch with our luxury travel experts to find out more.

Redefining romantic indulgence, You & Me by Cocoon beckons as one of the Maldives’ newest and most exclusive adults-only resorts.

Rangali Island at Conrad Rangali

An iconic trailblazer, Conrad Maldives elevates barefoot luxury to astonishing heights across its innovative accommodations and distinctive dining venues.

The adults-only Rangali Island at Conrad Rangali also offers just what you’d expect from a luxury resort in the Maldives – luxurious overwater villas perched above brilliant turquoise lagoons, vibrant snorkeling adventures around coral reefs, and the best of the best when it comes to service and hospitality. Yet what truly sets Conrad apart are its two remarkable undersea wonders – the first being The Muraka, the world’s first undersea residence. This accommodation allows you to relax while gazing at the unique marine life through panoramic curved acrylic domes. The second is the legendary Ithaa, frequently named the planet’s most beautiful restaurant for its exceptional dining experience 16 feet below the surface of the water.

You can also enjoy relaxing at the glass-floored overwater spa, offering ancient Maldivian rejuvenation rituals to leave you feeling at peace.

This island is adults-only, with the exception of one property that allows families of up to six people to book. Each of the overwater villas, however, is fully reserved for the grown-ups, so you won’t hear any splashing or screaming here.
