While you can find plenty of conventional facts on Maldives, there are more enthralling and unique details about this tropical paradise that are worth knowing too; read on for more!
Home to a Biosphere Reserve
The country features a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Baa Atoll; in the Maldives, pool villa accommodation can be found at resorts in this atoll offering lots to experience; this includes getting the chance to snorkel at places like Hanifaru Bay (May to November) amongst hundreds of manta rays!
First Underwater Wine Cellar
Wine connoisseurs have a chance to sample some of the finest vintages at the first underwater wine cellar on the planet! It can be found at the SEA restaurant of Anantara Kihavah Maldives Villas where you can enjoy gourmet dining underwater while viewing all manner of fish species swimming freely outside.
You Can Adopt Corals
A rewarding activity, you can adopt corals which are vital to the marine ecosystem. Certain luxury hotels and resorts in Maldives let guests get involved in transplanting coral onto a rope, which in turn, gets placed in a reef nursery. One will get updates and pictures of it growing and can visit it on return holidays.
You Can Dive at Night
Looking for a nightlife of a different kind? Diving in Maldives is taken to new heights (or rather depths!) when exploring the Indian Ocean at night. Some resorts offer such dives where you can gain whole new perspectives seeing stingrays, octopuses, nurse sharks as well as moray eels and rock lobsters out on hunts.
