Some of the best views in the Maldives can be found below the surface. Naladhu’s on-site PADI Dive Centre offers a full range of scuba certification courses. With classes ranging from scuba discovery to advanced open-water, wreck diving and even rescue dives, our Naladhu residents, from first-timer to fanatic, are sure to find an adventure suited to their abilities. Every day, the centre offers up to four dives at a variety of locations – in fact, within a half-hour radius of our island, there are no less than 20 world-class dives to enjoy.
The warm ocean breeze tickling your hair. The rustle of canvas sails above. Naladhu’s own fleet of luxury launches, catamarans and sailing yachts are available for charter, fishing trips and island-hopping adventures all around the South Male Atoll. The experienced (or adventurous) can harness the power of the winds and hone their knot-tying skills in the calm waters of the Indian Ocean, or more relaxed residents can simply unwind on deck with champagne or a cocktail (and awe-inspiring tropical views) while our experienced local skippers do all the work.
All aboard our elegant dhoni, the Riyaa, for a sail across the lagoon. Let us provide you with all the equipment for a Private Sunset Fishing expedition. When you start craving dinner, we’ll be back just in time for the chef to grill up your catch however you’d like! After you’ve taken a dive in the reefs of Naladhu, you’ll be curious to see what roams in deeper waters. Join us for an afternoon or morning on one of our deep-sea fishing excursions. You’ll first cruise past smaller atolls until you reach open ocean, where Sailfish, Marlin and Wahoo thrive.
We’ll give you an easy start to some water sports adventures with the complimentary canoes provided for you to enjoy the beautiful (and calm) lagoon fronting the island. For those feeling a bit more adventurous, have a go at windsurfing. Don’t worry if it’s your first try – we’ll encourage you with a lesson or two that will enable you to enjoy the wind and sea in a new and challenging way. We also have surfing, kayaking, stand up paddling, waterski, and catamaran sailing. The Maldives is famous for its perfectly groomed waves that rival some of the best on the planet. The beauty of Maldivian surf is not only its quality but also its variety, which allows surfers of all abilities to find and ride their perfect wave. The Resort’s surfing services at Naladhu are operated by Tropic Surf of Noosa Heads, Australia.
Total privacy. A midnight dip under the stars. Toasting a picture-perfect sunset over the lagoon. The infinity-edge pool is an integral feature of your House – seamlessly blending wood, light, air and water. Sliding doors off the bedroom give way to the clear waters of the pool, as do the hardwood floors of the bath and deck. Meanwhile, the surrounding gardens, lush with native Maldivian flowering plants and island greenery, remind you that you’re firmly ensconced in paradise. Delight in your secluded pool, where the view of the lapping waters melds with the ocean, lagoon and horizon.
