Romance is everywhere at Halaveli but for an extra special once-in-a-lifetime memory why not take an excursion to a private island for a picnic for two or a sunset dinner.

There’s also plenty of fun to be had exploring the stunning reefs around the hotel or trying your hands at big game fishing, water skiing, windsurfing or sailing your own catamaran.
