Maldives Luxury Cruise: Scuba, Spa & Resort Stay

Duration
10 Days
Prices:
On request

DELUXE | CRUISE: Combine a cruise on a luxury yacht with a premium resort stay on this perfect Maldives vacation. Enjoy 4 nights onboard a diving yacht with its own onboard spa and cruise to world-famous dive sites and beaches. Then spend 5 nights at a deluxe resort on a private atoll.


This 10-day Maldives vacation takes you on a cruise aboard a spa and diving vessel before spending several days at a private resort in the South Ari Atoll. It features deluxe accommodations and shared transfers. 

Your journey begins in the capital, Male, where you’ll board your diving vessel, the ScubaSpa, which will be your home for the following four nights. The 5-star diving yacht accommodates up to 40 guests in 10 cabins and nine suites with sea views and a variety of luxury bedding options, as well as air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with showers. The vessel is fully equipped with diving equipment, but also has the added comforts of a spa that spans two decks and offers everything from open-air Thai massages and meditation lessons to traditional wellness treatments. You can choose one of three packages to enjoy daily scuba diving, daily spa, or a mix of both, allowing you to end each day of diving with treatments in the spa. 

During your cruise aboard the ScubaSpa, you’ll visit famous diving spots and beautiful white-sand beaches. Enjoy a first dive at Lankan Point to spot manta rays beneath the waves before continuing to Fish Tank. Sail to Rasdhoo Atoll and spend the evening playing water sports and relaxing on the white sands of Madivaru Finolhu Beach. Snorkel off the shores of Picnic Island before searching for shipwrecks and eels near Rasdhoo Madivaru. Continue to Fish Head, where you can dive or take part in a yoga class on the beach on Meeruvefushi Island.  Spend the evening relaxing along Moofushi Point before continuing to Rangali Madivaru, where you’ll start the day with a dive or yoga class. Sail to Maamigili Island to search for migrating whale sharks, having the opportunity to dive or snorkel alongside the migrating giants. 

You’ll then make for the South Ari Atoll where you’ll disembark and transfer to LUX South Ari Atoll, a 5-star resort that lives up to the promise of its name. The only settlement on the island of Dhidhoofinolhu, LUX South Ari Atoll offers stunning beach bungalows and villas that prioritize intimacy and seclusion, making them perfect for both romantic partners and group travellers. Each bungalow and villa offer access to the lagoon, which is great for snorkelling and even has migrating whale sharks pass through each year. You’ll also enjoy access to the many luxury amenities of the resort, including two pools, secret gardens, several restaurants and bars with world-class chefs, a dive centre, and the spa, which offers tailored wellness packages for all guests.  

You’ll have four full days at leisure at LUX South Ari Atoll. Book a catamaran excursion to nearby islands, go topcat sailing, fish on the open ocean, or stay back on the resort beach to play volleyball or take part in yoga classes. Each day at LUX South Ari Atoll has the possibility of surprise experiences, like pop-up movie screenings at the beach, live music, and impromptu dance parties. 

At the end of your stay, you’ll connect back to the airport to return home.
