Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa is located in the beautiful and versatile South Ari Atoll and can be reached by seaplane approximately 20 minutes from the airport. It is one of the few real divers islands with its beautiful house reef, nearby dive sites and whale shark national park.
Our PADI 5-Star dive center offers various PADI courses. Beginners can gain their first Discover Scuba Diving experience on the house reef.
For divers who want to explore independently and at their own pace, the house reef is open throughout the day and for night dives.
There are around 50 beautiful dive sites nearby. Manta rays and Whale Shark sightings are possible all year round, and a wide variety of marine life that only very few places in the world can offer.
The Dhigurah channel is located between the two local islands, Dangethi and Dhigurah and can be reached by Dhoni in 30 min from Vilamendhoo.
This channel offers many breathtaking Thilas like 7th heaven, Lucky Hell, Reethi Thila or Kuda Rah Thila, which is often considered one of the best dive sites in the Maldives.
Divers seeking adventures can try diving with an underwater scooter (DPV). It is EASY to handle and lots of FUN.
Our morning, afternoon and full-day dive trips will bring you to the most impressive famous dive sites in South Ari Atoll for spectacular dives you will never forget. In addition, whale shark national park and Manta cleaning stations are offered multiple times per week.
