New five star dive resort opens in Maldives
A new five star dive resort has opened in the Maldives’ first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Located on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, the brand new Dusit Thani Maldives is located in the Maldives’ first ever UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, which is home to marine life including eagle rays, manta rays, a variety of turtle species and the endangered whale shark. Guests can explore the 360-degree Faroe reef system and three underwater caves alongside the schools of bannerfish and big eyed trevallies.
For guests who don’t know their manta ray from their monkfish, the island’s onsite Marine biologist, Lauren Arthur, is on hand to talk them through Baa Atoll’s phenomenal marine biodiversity. And for those who really want to take advantage of their unique vista, there is once in a lifetime opportunities to explore the reef during the day and night, join reef clean-ups and monitor sea turtle nesting habits.
Lauren Arthur, graduated from Newcastle University with an MSc in Tropical Coastal Management. Before moving to Mudhdhoo Island with Dusit Thani Maldives, Lauren worked as a marine biologist in Fiji.
Talking about the resort’s unrivalled location, Lauren said: “Being able to holiday in a world-renowned UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is such an exceptional opportunity.
“The tropical waters which surround the Dusit Thani Maldives, mean guests will have the chance to experience such a diverse mix of marine life. It’s fair to say that Dusit Thani Maldives guests have their very own safari in the sea.”
