Diving With Whale Sharks and Manta Rays in Baa Atoll
The Maldives’ Baa Atoll is a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and the ideal location for nature and wildlife lovers. Situated on the west of the Maldives’ atoll chain, snorkellers and divers exploring Baa Atoll’s colourful reefs should make sure to pack an underwater camera since thanks to the high concentration of plankton in the area, the atoll’s Hanifaru Bay is famous for its incredible gatherings of manta rays and whale sharks. Divers may also encounter napoleon fish, dog tooth tuna, barracuda and even hawksbill turtles – all perfect for an incredible underwater Instagram opportunity.
The luxury eco-friendly hotel of Coco Palm Dhuni Kolhu is located in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll and is accessible in just 35 minutes by seaplane from Malé. The resort has Maldivian Dive Sites just 15 minutes from the resort’s main island. Stay seven nights at Dhuni Kolhu from £1,950 per person. This includes accommodation in a Beach Villa on half-board with international flights and transfers included. Travel is valid from 1st May – 31st August 2019.

Sleep Under The Stars at Milaidhoo Island Maldives
The Maldives is renowned for its deserted islands and guests at Milaidhoo Island Maldives can now spend the night as castaways under the stars on their very own private sandbank – an Instagrammer’s dream location. Transformed with the luxury facilities of a Milaidhoo Villa, the sandbank comes with a canopied four-poster bed draped in muslin and a private yacht anchored nearby, complete with a dressing room and bathroom with all the amenities guests would expect to find back at the hotel.

Guests can then sleep under the stars surrounded by candles and lanterns scattered across the sandbank. A phone is provided with direct access to the personal butler should guests need anything throughout the night. As the sun rises, guests can kick-start the day with the Milaidhoo Yogi, who will take them through a sunrise yoga session before the butler arrives to serve a freshly prepared breakfast.
Starting price for a Beach Residence at Milaidhoo is £2,847 ($3,710) per night and £3,601 ($4,693) per night for an Ocean Residence, on a half board basis and including taxes.
