At the spa, you can enjoy your treatments while watching beautiful exotic fish swim by beneath the glass floors, or you can witness the marine life in person by snorkelling or diving at the spectacular house reef. The resort boasts a wide range of both non-motorised and motorised watersports, including catamaran sailing and excursions, wind surfing, kayaking, water-skiing, jet-skiing, fly-boarding, and more.

There are so many fantastic experiences waiting for you, from the peace and privacy of a floating breakfast to the weekly pool parties.

Sunset beach celebrations promise evening excitement and canapés, while the sunset fishing excursions will allow you to get fishing tuition from the locals and catch your own super-fresh dinner, to set up and grill ‘Maldivian style’ on a nearby sand bank surrounded by music and cheer.
