WELCOME TO ROYAL ISLAND

Commonly known as Horubadhoo, Located in Baa atoll, 75km North West of Malé, the capital city of the Maldives. Of a total of 50 islands in the Baa atoll, only one fifth of them make up the population of this atoll. The remaining islands are deserted with unspoiled wildlife and barely trodden-on beaches. Some of these neighboring uninhabited islands are ideal picnic spots for guests of the Royal Island and Spa. Due to the location of Baa atoll it is influenced by the southwest monsoon, especially from May to July, bringing in large quantities of nutrients from the surrounding ocean which attract whale sharks and manta rays. The main occupation of the people of this atoll is tuna fishery. Some of the islanders are well known for their skilled craftsmanship. Lacquer ware is a particularly unique creation of the people of Thulhaadhoo and is sold in many souvenir shops and resort boutiques. Eydhafushi, the capital island of Baa atoll is famous for ‘feyli’ weaving – a traditional-style wraparound skirt for women.

EXCURSIONS

The Royal Island and Spa offers its guests a variety of activities on and off the island. Take a trip out into the blue yonder and experience the underwater wonderland that is Maldives. Fishing is an especially exciting experience and need not be a threat to endangered marine life.
Morning Fishing; As the dawn breaks, fish come up to feed. Throw in a line, sit back and watch the dark sky turn to breathtaking shades of indigo, orange and blue and soon there’ll be a huge catch to take back for lunch.
Night Fishing; It’s an opportunity to watch and be a part of the sunset from the Dhoanis as reef fish began their nocturnal feeding frenzy. Be alert as fish tend to eat and run, cheating the eager fisherman of his catch.
Big Game Fishing; Be ambitious and net a big fish. Trawling is the best method to get barracuda, wahoo, sailfish, and it is absolutely adventurous.
Sunset Cocktail; A subdued, calm alternative to fishing. Get on a Dhoani and enjoy a cocktail while watching the sun go down in a kaleidoscope of colors.
Snorkeling; The lagoons of Baa Atoll are home to some of the more unique marine life such as lionfish, angle fish and large manta rays. In order to preserve this underwater wonderland, guests are reminded not to step on corals, or break or take away any part of the reef.
Island Hopping; Visit one local island, one uninhabited island and one resort. Have a barbecue and go snorkelling on a private island and create lifetime memories.
Hello Neighbors; Let us take you to a local island and a nearby resort for you to compare the differences. Meet the friendly people of these tiny islands and explore their way of life.
Overnight Picnic; No noise, no pollution, no buildings and only your footprints. The virgin island Gemendhoo (Royal Village) is all yours. Get “stranded” on a desert island with only the essentials of a full picnic and your loved one. You won’t need anything else.
