This idyllic resort boasts its own lagoon and coral reef, so marine activities, from diving to deep-sea fishing, submarining and stingray feeding, are all available. Step straight out of your room onto the soft white sand, and enjoy the complete tranquillity of being in the middle of the ocean. You’ll be treated to a sunset cruise and spa treatment during your stay.

Good to know

Please note that depending on your selected day of departure your tour could take place in the opposite order, i.e., beginning with the Maldives stay, then cruising from the Maldives to Mumbai, then embarking on a Golden Triangle tour in India before heading back the UK.

Itineraries leaving the UK and beginning in Delhi (ending in the Maldives; as above) will depart on 1 and 30 December 2019, 12 and 26 January 2020, or 9 and 23 February 2020.

Itineraries leaving the UK and beginning in the Maldives (ending in Delhi) will depart on 6 and 8 December 2019, 3, 5, 17, 19 and 31 January 2020, or 2, 14 and 16 February 2020.

Please note that if you opt to begin your tour in the Maldives and end in Delhi you will visit Colombo (Sri Lanka) and Mormugao (Goa) on your cruise instead of New Mangalore and Cochin.
