Mumbai: You must have heard about the pristine beaches, gentle breeze and nature’s bounty in Maldives. Most newlyweds often choose this island country for their honeymoon because it offers the tranquillity, privacy and hospitality that people expect from a travel destination post marriage.

You will have to see it to believe it!
