Board your own private yacht and cruise into the UNESCO wilderness for an afternoon of tropical adventure that’s yours to tailor to the last detail… Cruise in search of dolphins; enjoy a private turtle, reef, or manta snorkel; or head out for a spot of fishing. Then disembark at a deserted picnic island where we’ll have a beautiful BBQ waiting. Time the trip to suit your schedule (min. 4 hours), depending on how many activities you want to experience while marooned in the Maldives. Recommended departure times 10 am and 2 pm.


Redefine movie night with an outdoor cinema just for you. We’ll set the scene with an ocean backdrop, beach beanbags, cinema snacks and your favourite film for a night to remember.


Continue the party this festive season by hiring one of our exceptional DJs for a private gathering in your villa or on the beach. Simply decide when and where and let us take care of the rest.


Give the ultimate gift this festive season – to yourself or a loved one – with our unique Yoga Therapy Stress Management Course. Undertaken for just a couple hours a day across 3 or 5 days in our new Yoga Therapy Centre, you’ll be guided through comprehensive consultations, breathing techniques and postures. All aligned to your individual needs and lifestyle to help combat everything from stress-induced headaches, muscle tension and chest pain, to sleep issues, libido changes and infertility; fatigue, irritability and compromised immunity to digestive issues and skin disorders. We’re the only Resort in the Maldives to offer this unique program, devised in conjunction with S-VYASA, the world’s first ‘University for Yoga’ and pioneer of yoga therapy through scientific research. Once you’ve returned home, enjoy follow-up care in the form of personal video-conference sessions, equipping you with all the knowledge and support you need to move forward confidently as master of your own wellbeing.


Experience the magic and mysteries of the underwater world, full of subaquatic rainbow gardens and psychedelic sea creatures…  The UNESCO protected waters around Landaa are a kaleidoscopic haven of vibrant thilas and ancient reefs. Our exceptional dive team will help you navigate the beautiful waters in style – whether you’re 8 or 80. And if you’re new to the sport, our lagoon-based beginners classes and access to PADI’s home study course could see you venturing out as a qualified diver in as little as two days…

Our interactive Marine Discovery Centre is a state-of-the art tribute to our marine conservation projects, covering the worlds of Marine Savers, Reefscapers and The Manta Trust – our conservation partners behind over a decade of pioneering projects – plus the role you can play in making a difference.

Explore the pioneering Fish Lab, visit the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre and find out about the year-round work of the world’s largest manta ray charity. Join our marine biologists on thrilling safaris and monitoring dives; help to feed the turtles and baby clownfish; sponsor and transplant your own coral frame; and learn about new projects like the jellyfish tank: designed to shed a light on one of the ocean’s most fascinating and misunderstood marine creatures.

Join us every morning for a guided tour – or visit throughout the day – to immerse yourself in the staggering stats and fascinating facts of one of the Maldives’ leading oceanic research facilities.


Baa Atoll’s manta season might end in November, but there are still mantas to be seen in Raa Atoll: 45-minutes by speedboat. Raa Atoll Safaris are run on request and last 3-4 hours in total. Trips are dependent on the tides and sighting reports from our friends in Raa… While we can’t guarantee sightings (mantas are wild creatures, after all) we do everything we can to maximise the chances – and very little beats the exhilaration of an oceanic safari in search of these incredible creatures! Will you be the one to spot an elusive black shadow or emerging wingtip at the water’s surface…?

Please speak to our Recreation Team if you are interested in joining a Raa Atoll Manta Safari this festive season.


Our in-house tennis pro, Chandana ‘Federer’ Jayaweera, has been winning medals since the tender age of 8. This festive season, he’s joining us from the ‘Royal College’ Tennis Academy in Colombo, Sri Lanka, to offer kids and adults alike everything from training drills, game strategy and conditioning to personalised vacation-long programs. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn top tips from a true pro. Contact Recreation to discuss your needs.
