The Planet Earth probably has its name wrong considering that our global ocean covers about 70% of its surface. Humans have long been fascinated with the sea and what lies beneath it, undersea exploration is one of our greatest triumphs and joys. If you are a member of the aquatic tribe who loves to snorkel and scuba dive, then you are always searching for new waters to plunge into.

This vast chain of atolls spans the equator and features spectacular diving opportunities for both the novice and old pros alike.

Incredible underwater realms:

If you want to experience the incredible underwater realms of the Maldives while living in the lap of luxury, then be sure to book your stay in a  Maldives overwater villa to have the best of above and below the surface just a few steps away from each other. Simply stroll out of your plush accommodations onto your own private deck perched above the sea, then down the stairs into the enticing waters of a private lagoon. Put on your snorkelling gear and paddle around watching the fish to your heart’s content until you are ready to return to the luxury that so conveniently awaits you back in your villa!

During your stay, you will have the opportunity to take your diving experience to a new level in the company of your very own marine biologist ocean guide!
