Kick off your summer with a trip to the Maldives, staying at the superb Vilamendhoo Island Resort. UK-based Tour Operator Dive Worldwide is offering a discount of £200pp on holidays booked by 28 February and taken between 1 June and 31 July 2018.
Located in the southeast corner of the South Ari Atoll, Vilamendhoo Island Resort is surrounded by tropical palm trees and sits alongside a turquoise lagoon and 900m wide sand beach. Facilities include two restaurants where buffet style meals are served as well as a choice of bars and two a la carte restaurants.
There are two swimming pools and a wide range of activities for adults and children available including water sports, diving, tennis, a playground, games room and gym.
The onsite dive centre (operated by Euro Divers) is located on a private jetty, just a few metres from the house reef. The reef has 10 entry/exit points around the island, suitable for snorkellers and divers on the unlimited shore diving package. There are over 40 dive sites to explore including reefs, wrecks and channel dives, and a range of PADI courses is available.
Experienced divers can explore the house reef from the shore for most of the week, but it is also possible to get out on the dhoni to some incredible dive sites such as Vilamendhoo Caves (home to rays and sharks) and Khudarah Thila, a protected area with abundant marine life and a very popular dive. There are plenty of channel dives where you can drift along looking out for large pelagic encounters, including turtles, sharks and rays. There are a few wrecks to explore and day trips to look for manta rays and whale sharks.
Special Offer Price: from £2,175pp based on 2 sharing (SAVING £200pp), including return flights from the UK, transfers, 7 nights’ full-board accommodation at Vilamendhoo Island Resort, and 6 days non-limit shore diving with tanks, weights and Nitrox (for qualified divers).
