Maldives awarded “World’s most romantic destination” at World Travel Awards

The Maldives has been designated the “World’s Most Romantic Destination” in the World Travel Awards for the second time, beating other nominees including New York, Paris, Tuscany and Venice.

The destination also won ‘leading cruise destination’ and ‘honeymoon destination’ for the Indian Ocean category.

The World Travel Awards also listed the Maldives as the Leading Cruise Destination and Honeymoon Destination in the Indian Ocean, a regional category where it also scooped the Leading Beach and Leading Island destination gongs.

A number of international resort groups operating in the country were also awarded during the evening, with Adaaran picking up an accolade in competition for the World’s Leading Water Villa title.

Companies Banyan Tree and Six Senses also walked away with awards in the areas of World’s Leading Corporate Social Responsibly programme and Leading Luxury Resort Brand respectively.

  1. Whoever awarded Maldives with the title needs to have his/their heads examined. The tourist numbers post 'Vilu Reef Marriage Fiasco' are now eagerly awaited. Tourists should shun this backward place where they are mocked and treated disrespectfully. Perhaps the title 'World's Most Hostile Holiday Destination' will be more apt.

  2. @Happy Infidel:

    When I visited a resort in the UK, I was called a 'paki' and all sorts of stuff by the staff. It occurs everywhere where there is a language barrier, except the Vilu Reef became quite publicized.

  3. I saw the news with cool pic, from below link:
