Be one with nature at the tranquil InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort, an IHG Hotel, floating on the azure waters of the immaculate Raa Atoll. Be lulled into a state of serene relaxation by the tidal lullaby of the Indian Ocean as you live out your tropical island fantasies within your private villa. Feel your stresses slip away as you glide through the turquoise waters of the open waters atop a paddleboard or snorkelling below the surface. With the stunning resort positioned near one of Maldives’ UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, the protected Hanifaru Bay sanctuary, staying here means once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to view a rich and diverse marine habitat, with large populations of whale sharks and endangered manta rays.
Pamper yourself at the ethereal AVI Spa and watch as the sky turns a cacophony of orange while submerged in the pool, a refreshing cocktail never far out of reach. Let your tastebuds dance over incredible Maldivian seafood plucked straight from the tranquil waters at Fish Market, try Mediterranean flavours with a twist in a nautical lighthouse and experience a hands-on teppanyaki experience at Cafe Umi. For travelling families, Planet Trekkers Kids Club is sure to keep the little ones entertained while the adults indulge in fine cheese and impeccable wines at The Retreat.
