SUBAQUATIC ADVENTURES WITH CHEVAL BLANC RANDHELI


If you’re into diving and snorkeling, you’ll love the place that I’m going to introduce today.

Experience the mesmerizing underwater world with Cheval Blanc Randheli’s five star PADI Dive Centre by Dive Butler International, and its host of new dive experiences for winter 2014. Since opening in November 2013, the Maison’s dive team has been over-awed by the plethora of marine life teeming below the surface of the warm, azure waters of the Noonu Atoll.

 

Guests can enjoy underwater discovery at every level – from intrepid beginner to experienced diver – whether that is snorkelling amongst the Jackfish swirling in the shallows, spotting small Stingray in the sands under the Water Villas, or taking a journey further afield to the many nearby dive sites.

The Maison’s location offers guests the chance to conveniently dive at multiple atolls – something rare in the Maldives. On Noonu Atoll alone, there are 30 known dive sites, all within a 40-minute boat ride from the beaches of Randheli, including the renowned Orimas Thila site (Shark Point in Dhivehi, the local language), where guests have been lucky enough to see four shark species in just one dive, including the endangered Guitar Shark and the Leopard Shark, rarely spotted in the Maldives.

 

Snorkelling excursions to Hanifaru Bay in Baa Atoll – a marine protected area which is one of the most reliable places in the world to see endangered species such as Manta Rays and Whale Sharks, between May and November each year – are also available to guests, whilst advanced divers may in turn experience the thrill of drift dives at nearby Lhaviyani Atoll.

 

Will it be your next travel destination?
