A 35-minute scenic seaplane transfer from Male International Airport, InterContinental Maldives enjoys an enviable location enclaved within Maldives’ largest natural lagoon, with emerald blue waters all around, unfettered sunset views and pristine white sands.
The island is located near Maldives’ only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and home to Hanifaru Bay, one of the very few places in the world where visitors can snorkel among feeding congregations of whale sharks and large groups of enigmatic and graceful reef manta rays.
As part of InterContinental Maldives’ conservation initiatives, the resort has partnered with Manta Trust in support of the Maldivian Manta Ray Project, to nurture a safe habitat for the manta rays within the resort’s lagoon as well as providing guests with an invaluable information and opportunity to swim alongside these graceful creatures and snorkel in underwater coral gardens.
