Adopt Your Own Coral

Nearly 70% of all Maldivian shallow water reefs were bleached in 1998. Since then, the government and its people have started to assist the reefs in recovery by creating more protection awareness. NIYAMA began the coral regeneration program in 2007 and has since transplanted over 1,000 corals to its House Reef. Make a difference and learn more about the project from our Resident Marine Biologist while snorkeling with her to the nursery where you pick, name and cultivate your very own coral. A certificate and follow-up images are provided afterwards. 


Sunset Cruise

Colours of the evening sky dance on the waves while you sip Champagne and nibble canapés; all on board our Luxury Dhoni.
