The newlyweds can enjoy a stay in a stunning one-bedroom overwater villa with honeymoon turndown service, a romantic four-course dinner, plus floating breakfast the next morning, signature couple’s spa treatment at FLOW, and embark on their new journey together with a sunset cruise. Guests also can relive their heartwarming moments, as photography for the big day will be organised by the resort, and the couple will also receive a printed photo album. Wedding packages start at US $4,288++ per couple.
The wedding parties can be hosted in elegant venues such as Helios and Portico, depending on the guests’ preferences and number of people. The menu will be specially curated by Patina Maldives’ culinary experts to suit all tastes.

Patina Maldives will also arrange live entertainers like saxophonists, solo artists, DJ or a band, at an additional cost.
Those that prefer to stay close to the lively Fari Marina Village, can book the Fari Studios. The beautiful studios are ideal for couples and offer a simultaneous experience of isolation and belonging.
Couples that want to continue to enjoying a secluded escape can book a Honeymoon package, inclusive of a stay in a one-bedroom Sunset Beach or Sunset Water Pool Villa with daily turndown service, sunset cruise, bubbly, couple’s spa treatment, romantic meals, and treats such as assorted chocolates and a fresh fruit basket.
Upon request, the hotel’s event team can organise private dining experiences on the gorgeous shore, giving couples the option of relishing exquisite seafood or meat dishes, or authentic Maldivian, Italian and Indian flavours from the specially crafted menus.
The Sandbank Dining experience is ideal for those who prefer to enjoy a gourmet picnic on the beach, while watching the sunset and enjoying delicious food.
