Fancy a dive to see a great shipwreck? Or do you like to enjoy the best marine life as it unfolds before your eyes? Then Angsana Ihuru in the Maldives is your next stop.
Located in the North Male Atoll, the seas surrounding Angsana Ihuru is home to kandus (channels), taru (reef), and thila (coral mountains) and makes for a gorgeous dive.
A PADI Five-Star Gold Palm Resort, Angsana Ihuru is a diver's paradise. From professional diving instructors conversant in the main language to the nearest Divers Alert Network medical facility with a hyperbaric chamber located just 12 minutes away, it's no surprise that the world's best divers converge here. More facilities at the Marine Center include a Photo Lab, where instructors can develop and compile photos and videos of your memorable dive!
Angsana Ihuru is also the first home of SNUBA where snorkelers or inexperienced divers can breathe through a hose connected to a floating raft while they make their way up to a 6-meter depth.
And kids! Fret not! Ever heard of a SNUBA-Doo? Well, now you have. It's a specially-designed flotation device that will keep you afloat for a safe and fun-filled snorkeling experience.
For the best dive ever, a must-do is a dive to the Angsana House Ihuru Reef where there's an average visibility of 30 meters and 5 entry points. See the sharks, maray eels, octopuses and a variety of marine life in addition to the Rannamaari wreck which lies on the south side of the reef.
Hobie-cat sailing, windsurfing, reef fishing, sports fishing, fun tubing and wakeboarding are among the range of other fun water sports in which you can indulge. There's also Reef Cleaning, Coral Gardening and a Nurtle Nesting Programme, of which guests can be a part.
To help the local artisans out and pile up on those memories, a visit to the Angsana Gallery will help. This is where you will find intricate scents, exclusive pieces of jewellery and other nature-friendly products.
Everything you ever imagined in a home has been styled into the beautiful villas at Angsana Ihuru. The Beachfront Jet Pool Villa hides among the tropical foliage but gives you easy access to the ocean. With a lovely verandah and outdoor swing, as the name suggests, this villa comes with your very own jet pool. A family of four can have a great time here, but to add to the fun, two additional beds can be fitted in as well.
Wake up to the sights and sounds of the ocean at the Beachfront Villa where comfort and style merge to create the best holiday living that you will experience. Also suitable for a family or a group of four, this villa too, can accommodate two additional beds. Enjoy a quiet private garden or read a book on the verandah- relaxation is what it is all about..
The Riveli restaurant which means "beam of light" in Dhivehi, offers dishes ranging from Asian to Mediterranean and Maldivian. Be it indoor or al fresco dining, buffet or set menus, you will be spoilt for choice at this awesome venue.
The Velaavani open-air waterfront bar serves up the best cocktails and snacks as you gaze over the lagoon and house reef. Lovely!
The Destination Dining experience takes you to five places. Choose a Beach Barbeque on the beach outside your private villa or enjoy a Saturday Beach Dinner which is a great lobster feast on the beach.
And then there's a Maldivian first - a five course dinner spread across two islands and five different venues. Pure bliss!
You can also pamper yourself with a soothing massage and spa treatment at the Angsana Spa and then sit down to a five course spa dinner. Request for a Coconut Body Polish, or a Mud Pie Body Conditioner at one of the comfortable spa rooms that will calm your senses, and then elevate your dining experience.
