FACILITIES

WATER SPORTS

WATER SPORTS

Big Game Fishing:

Cast it out and reel it on in - you've probably been fishing before, but never in a setting like this. Take a half-day excursion on our speedboat to reap the bounty of the plentiful Indian Ocean and take part in a local past-time. Our expert guides will show you how to reel in some of the sea's thriving sailfish, wahoo, tuna, mahi mahi and giant trevally. Bring your catch back with you and our chefs will be happy to prepare it as you wish, or teach you how to cook it yourself, for a uniquely do-it-yourself seafood supper.


Canoeing:

Grab your most trusted paddling partner and take out one of our canoes for an afternoon spin on the lagoon. Bring a picnic basket along and find a secluded spot in the sand for private lunch, or work on your tan as you glide over the waters and explore the island from afar.


Kayaking:

Enjoy a tranquil morning of gliding around the lagoon, or pick up the speed and find a fun new way to get your afternoon workout. Sit-atop kayaks, whether tandem or solo, transparent or solid, are one of the best ways to experience the beauty of our Maldivian paradise at your own pace. Explore secluded beaches and hidden lagoons, or simply drift over the clear blue waters gazing at the marine life teeming below.

Sailing:

Sailing has long been an integral part of the sea-faring culture of the Maldives. At Anantara, we invite you to take the once-in-a-lifetime chance to set sail in one of the world's most stunning marine destinations aboard a graceful catamarans or our private yacht. Whether you are a sea-hardened sailing expert, ready to embark on a solo voyage into the horizon, or a novice landlubber, eager to soak up the sun and the sights and leave the steering to the skipper, we can customise an excursion suited to your tastes.


Snorkelling:

Play among the manta rays or watch a clownfish darting through his sea anemone. Borrow a pair of fins and a snorkel to get up close to the exotic aquatic life of the Maldives without the weight of a scuba tank. The tranquil, crystal clear waters of the island offer unrivalled opportunities for fish viewing.

Windsurfing:

Skip along the glassy surface of the ocean, the breeze whipping through your hair, your heart pounding. Windsurfing is the closest you can get to flying, with you feet still planted firmly on the ground - or rather, on the water! With all the power of the wind behind you, and your expert instructors showing you the way, you'll be skimming across the mirror-like surface of the lagoon in no time.

I discovered Zeldiva through the persistent YouTube ads we often skip, but one day, while occupied with something else, their ad caught my attention. For me, it was a "gerrari" as to where to go for my honeymoon trip, i.e., the most preferred destination, the Maldives. I thought of getting in touch with the Zeldiva team, and from the beginning to the end, the experience was seamless. Their website made it easy to manage everything from budgeting to selecting a resort. I must commend their dedicated team for their assistance. Although my preferred resort was fully booked, I trusted their recommendation, and it turned out to be a wise decision. Not only did I have an amazing time, but it also cost less than expected. While booking directly with the resort is an option, I believe using Zeldiva brings peace of mind. Therefore, I highly recommend their services.

Highly recommend Zeldiva Luxury to any one planning a trip to the Madlives. Marissa's help ensured a smooth booking process, a better deal and ease of mind, for that I am truly grateful. Also thankful for meeting Ahmed from the Zeldiva team who greeted us at the airport during arrival and also during the departure. He was a great help, ensuring that my wife, infant daughter and I had a smooth transition from the plane to boat and back from boat to plane at both times, even giving us information about the Maldives (explaining Kumari Kandam! which I wont forget about). Thank you for making our stay at the Maldives easy and smooth. I would recommend using Zeldiva Luxury to anyone planning on going to the Madlives to ensure getting a better deal, smooth transport transition and ease of mind
