Resort Description

Rihiveli the Dream combines traditional architecture with a lush tropical landscape, located on the edge of the oceanic barrier reef.

The resort is unique in that it has two virgin islets, surrounded by a turquoise lagoon, which is regularly visited by a pod of dolphins. It is located in the Kaafu South Male Atoll, just a 50 minute speedboat ride from the international airport.

The beautiful overwater restaurant faces the sunrise and from your vantage point you'll be able to see turtles, juvenile sharks and colourful fish. The sunset bar allows you to soak up glorious sunsets across the ocean. The resort operates a #NoNewsNoShoes policy - in line with this, WiFi is only accessible at the bar and restaurant.

Accommodation is in airy, charming bungalows with sea view (sun rise or sunset side), perfectly shaded under the palm trees, creating a cool temperature in the rooms. The dive sites around Rihiveli are world renowned thanks to the pelagic encounters in the nearby channels.

Explore diving around the Rihiveli the Dream

What to see

Most of the marine life in the South Male Atoll is of the larger variety due to the strong currents that favor the area. It is here that divers spot eagle rays, turtles, grey sharks, reef sharks, mantas, whale sharks, schools of fusiliers, barracuda, trevally and even hammerhead sharks (from May to November).

Of course, smaller marine life also exists, especially in the interior of the atoll. To the delight of divers, anemones, shrimp, lionfish, squirrelfish, soldierfish, unicorn fish, morays and batfish are commonly spotted.

Wherever you dive, the wild ride known as the South Male Atoll is sure to give you at least one “wow” moment.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • 5* diving center offering access to over 30 amazing dive sites
  • Convenient location, with most boat rides 10-40 minutes away
  • Incredible long reefs, perfect for drift diving
  • Beautiful underwater islands (thilas) available to dive

Description

Bluetribe Moofushi is a PADI 5* dive center offering divers at Riviheli the Dream a relaxed, professional experience taking in the best sites in the area.

All divers head to the boat together where the gear is already assembled and the weights and wetsuits are ready in your own personal box. After a quick nitrox check and an informative dive briefing, you'll head out to one or two dive sites, depending on the morning or the afternoon dive.

After diving, there's no need to rinse or dry your gear: we will give it the professional care it needs to remain in pristine condition. Night dives can be organized on request and there is no minimum number of divers that are needed for any of our dives. If one person wants to go diving we will organize the boat and guide for only that one diver… no problem.

Divers at Bluetribe Moofushi have access to over 30 different dive sites, with lots to see on every one. The boat rides take about 10 to 40 minutes to most of our dive sites. Lots of diverse locations are on offer, ranging from beautifull Thila's (Underwater Towers) to amazing long reefs perfect for drift diving or cruising.
