ROOMS & SUITES

Located on the beach, these are spacious, individual wooden bungalows offering a beautiful view of the lagoon, and feature a semi open-air bathroom.

This full day excursion in the traditional Maldivian mode of sea transport will take you to the uninhabited island of Kagi at the north end of North Male Atoll. This is a small island with soft sandy beaches and a good house reef for snorkelling enthusiasts. A barbecue lunch will be served on the island.
The Maldives is the perfect place for a spot of fishing. After all the waters here are literally teeming with fish. The morning fishing excursions take you trawling along the outer atoll, dragging a line on the surface for barracuda, wahoo and jack. Morning fishing is close to the reef, but in deep water. For night fishing you leave just before sunset and drop anchor near the reef.
The relaxed fishing uses sinkers, and all you have to do is sit back and wait for the fish to bite.
Big game fishing is another experience not to be missed. Using a rod, this is an exciting experience. Just wait and see who catches the biggest barracuda.
