LIME SPA at Per Aquum Huvafen Fushi is an underground spa retreat where your viewing material is from the Indian Ocean itself! Another must-see from the depths of the Indian Ocean is Subsix, named as the ‘underwater-playground’ this night club and restaurant is set against the colourful landscape of the Indian ocean where you can enjoy champagne breakfast, light lunches or visit Subsix at night when it transforms into an underwater night club.


Go diving!

If there’s ever a time to try your hand at diving, its in the Maldives. At Constance Halaveli you can dive in the Indian Ocean, whether you’re beginner or an experienced diver,  a lot of Maldives resorts facilitate PADI diving centres, making it easy for everyone to get involved. Explore the many colours of coral reefs and marine life hidden under the world’s most popular Ocean for a truly wonderful experience. The best places to dive are the North and South Ari atoll and the most popular coral reef in Malvies is the Banana reef.


Watch a movie on the beach

Enjoy an action film, chick flick or comedy while the sound of waves lap up the shore and the stars begin to sparkle from above. Velassaru has a wonderful open-air cinema, lay back on a cozy lounger and indulge on some popcorn and ice cream while enjoying your favourite film underneath the stars.

Seaplane view

The Maldives is a lengthily flight, but it’s all worth the wait, once you hop onto the Seaplane from Male your jet lag will become a distance memory! The breath-taking Seaplane ride gives the most incredible panoramic views of the Atolls that dot around the Indian Ocean, making a truly incredible view that will stay with your forever.

Make the beach your lounge

Those who visit the Maldives seek pure paradise, where relaxation is one top of the things to do. It’s no wonder why we have to mention how beautiful and serene the white powdery beaches are. Sink those feet into warm, soft sand while you enjoy a relaxing cocktail on a hammock with nothing but the gentle sounds of nature.

Island hop

Many islands offer excursions where you can visit neighboring Maldives Islands for an exciting day out exploring hidden places and beautiful Islands, what better way to spend your Maldives holiday visiting as many Atolls as you can!

Go stargazing

The observatory at Soneva Fushi allows you to peer through state-of-the-art telescopes, where you can set your eyes upon Saturn and it’s celestial bodies, which is invisible from Europe and most of the world, making this a truly exclusive experience.


Enjoy a relaxing Spa treatment

If there’s one thing that Maldives do exceptionally well (other than being a secluded getaway) it’s their collection of world-class spa resorts. One&Only Reethi Rah offers award-winning treatments to soothe your senses into tranquility, not to mention the outstanding views of the Indian Ocean to add to your blissful spa treatment.

Enjoy the luxury of a Private pool villa

Maldives are famous for their beautiful lagoons and endless trail of Indian Ocean, this is why we think that having a water villa is the best decision you could make on your Maldives holiday. Enjoy the blissful views in the privacy of your own villa set atop the Indian Ocean, admire the sunset or sunrise, go for a quick dip in the pool and Ocean, or just simply relax on your private terrace with a book in hand and a cocktail by your side.
