‘Golf in the Maldives – Nature & Activities’

The villas are located in the trees, on the beach or over water and all feature outdoor relaxation areas, some with private pools. The island is home to the only golf course in the Maldives, it has 9 holes all of which are par 3 or 4. Complimentary sporting activities on the island include tennis and fitness classes, on the water you can enjoy paragliding, paddle boarding, snorkelling and other daily activities such as sporting challenges, marine life exploration and eco and historical tours. At the CHI spa there are treatment villas, steam rooms and meditation and yoga pavilions. There are three restaurants serving foods from around the globe and there is an option to Dine by Design where a dedicated chef and waiter ensure culinary desires are exceeded.



In Our Opinion

‘The best that a remote island can offer paired with access to local life and culture – a rare find in the Maldives. The bike tours to Addu City and the Meedhoo Farms Tour are our favourites. Also, check out the ‘Masters in Residence’ – there to astonish you!’
