|Paradise is made of this! An island resort, surrounded by a crystal-clear lagoon and miles and miles of ocean in shades of blue and turquoise. This is the place for a real break, far removed from the bustle of modern life, on a beautiful island, full of tropical greenery, surrounded by a fabulous lagoon, perfect for swimming and snorkelling and close to the Maldives’ best dive sites.
Dhidhoofinolhu (diva Maldives )is one of the largest islands in the Maldives, 1.8 kilometres long and 200 metres wide. A real haven of tranquillity, with lush tropical vegetation running alongside 4 kilometres of white sandy beaches. The island is surrounded by a magnificent, sheltered lagoon, featuring a rich animated marine life, particularly with the fascinating ballet of manta rays and colourful tropical fish. At the heart of this beautiful setting, Naïade has created the latest jewel in its collection: Diva Maldives, a masterpiece, a showcase, combining the natural beauty of Maldives and a tropical outdoor style of life, close to nature, with refined luxury and elegance.
Maldives is famous for its marine diversity and especially for its whale-sharks, which average well over 20 feet in length. The country has some of the most fabulous sites for diving in the world and luxurious Diva is the ideal base. The most beautiful sites are less than an hour from the Resort. The boat journey makes diving trips even more enjoyable. Guests set out in dhonis, a traditional Maldivian form of boat, and an experience in itself. The sea is never closer than in the exclusive Water Villas, standing on stilts over the lagoon. You can simply slip from your own private deck into the water.
Diva Maldives has become a flagship supporter of the recently designated FenMaaDhiguRan, the Maldives’ first fully regulated, and largest, Marine Protected Area (MPA) – home to a globally significant population of whale sharks, not to mention some of the worlds finest dive sites. The first resort located within the Marine Protected Area to commit to backing the pioneering conservation project with fundraising initiatives, Diva Maldives has introduced a voluntary gratuity charge scheme enabling guests to actively contribute to the conservation of the whale sharks and their habitat.
