While you can readily find things to do in Maldives, some resorts offer more unique activities that will make your getaway even more special.
Snorkel with Mantas
Amongst the most remarkable experiences to enjoy is the chance to snorkel amidst manta rays as they glide and whirl in the water. The best place for this is Hanifaru Bay in the Baa Atoll, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve; resorts here, like The Nautilus Maldives, offer private guided excursions for close encounters of the manta kind!
At certain luxury hotels, Maldives dining experiences can be enjoyed at secluded sandbanks perfect for a romantic interlude or some family fun. Options can include a beach BBQ, picnic or intimate dinner. Of course, for something truly extraordinary, some resorts will set up a private movie screening on a sandbank too!
Enjoy a Cooking Lesson
You can take a Maldivian cooking class where a private chef will offer hands-on guidance in creating authentic local dishes that can include delectable fish curries. Some resorts even have cooking classes tailored for kids who can join in the fun; once back home, the whole family can team up to recreate Maldivian specialities!
Take a Boduberu Class
Boduberu is traditional Maldivian music that you can learn more about at certain resorts which makes for an enriching cultural experience. You will gain first-hand insights into this form of music that has been influenced by African culture; featuring drumming, clapping, singing and dancing, it’s great to watch as well as participate in.
