Nestled in the lush foliage in a secret location, the Bulleit Bar provides the ultimate private bar experience.

The beauty and charm of the Maldives are undeniable. Warm temperatures, expansive stretches of pristine beach and turquoise waters have appealed to travellers seeking some respite from the biting winter cold. While there is much to do on land, from sipping delicious cocktails to receiving a world-class massage in a scenic spa, there is much more to do at sea. The tropical climate and the abundance of magnificent reefs brimming with marine life, make the Maldives a swimmer’s paradise. Below are a few thrilling bucket list experiences to try.
Spend A Day At Sea In Vilamendhoo
Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa is world-renowned for having one of the finest house reefs in the Maldives. A diver’s dream, Vilamendhoo’s house reef is just a short swim away from the beach, allowing swimmers to experience the magical underwater world. Vilamendhoo has a 5 Star PADI Certified Dive Centre, operated by Euro-Divers, that offers not only courses but also excursions. One such excursion is the Ocean Discovery, a full day trip that takes you to the most popular reefs, giving you the chance to hopefully spot and swim with Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Sea Turtles and so much more. Swimming with Whale Sharks, the gentle giants of the sea, is an unforgettable experience that we highly recommend.
Visit The ‘Turtle Airport’ In Kuredu
Ten minutes away from Kuredu Island Resort & Spa are the Kuredu Caves. This popular dive spot is also fondly referred to as ‘Turtle Airport’ as it is home to an astounding number of sea turtles. Adventurers at heart, Sea Turtles often travel for thousands of miles, crossing oceans to feed before returning home. Kuredu Caves has a series of overhangs that drop down to twenty metres. Here, you are likely to see stingrays, porcupine fish, lionfish, moray eels and much more. Kuredu’s Dive Centre is operated by Prodivers Maldives, a 5 Star PADI Dive Centre that caters to beginners and experienced divers alike.
