Watersports — A well-known hotspot among diving and snorkeling enthusiasts (many include the house reef on their bucket lists), Biyadhoo Island Resort is known for its house reef and dive sites. You can get up close and personal with underwater residents along the reef including stingrays, turtles, eagle rays, eels, octopuses, and nurse sharks, as well as spectacularly bright coral worthy of its acclaim. Boasting rave reviews and expert dive instructors, the dives welcome more than just oceanholics. From windsurfing and fishing to canoeing and dolphin watching, there are endless ways to get your feet wet at the private island.
Aavun Spa — Our island escapes aren’t just underwater excursions and oceanside tipples - we’re here for some R&R too. True to the island’s naturalistic setting and tranquil ambiance, Biyadhoo Island Resort's spa promotes holistic healing and therapeutic treatments with ingredients pulled straight from the earth. Signature rituals are held under a majestic Banyan tree canopy and use seashells and pure coconut oil.
Malé — Although we don’t foresee you being able to part with Biyadhoo, if you’re in the mood for some island hopping, head to the capital city of the Maldives for some historic culture and colorful sightseeing. Malé is a speed boat trip away and is known for its historic mosques and colorful architecture. The National Museum showcases regional artifacts like ancient weapons and sultans’ thrones, and if you head a bit north of the city, you'll find Huskuru Miskiiy, a 17th-century mosque built of coral stone and intricate wood carvings.
