David Castaño as General Manager of Milaidhoo Maldives

30 July, 2022

A chance to marvel at the cosmic beauty of the Milky Way from a small island in the Maldives. In May of 2023, Milaidhoo presents you with a seven-day retreat, that will take a novice astronomers — as well as the curious guests on a journey to the stars like no other. Explore the night sky and all its wonders with the special guest, Valerie Stimac.

Valerie Stimac has lived across the globe but spent her formative years in Alaska admiring the northern lights each winter. After living in cities including Seattle, London, and the San Francisco Bay Area, Valerie re-discovered a childhood passion for space and combined it with her professional career as a travel writer.

Valerie began writing stories about space tourism and astrotourism, encouraging readers to travel for dark skies and plan for the day where we’ll be able to vacation beyond earth. Valerie has worked with Lonely Planet for the last four years as a local expert in both Seattle and San Francisco and Dark Skies: A Practical Guide to Astrotourism (Lonely Planet, September 2019) is her first book.


  • Healing Space Massage – Milaidhoo’s special massage inspired by space
  • Dinner under the stars including stargazing on a secluded sandbank
  • Wayfinding beneath the stars on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni
  • Astrophotography sessions with Valerie
  • Night-sky mythology stories focused on the history of the night sky from various cultures in the Maldives, including the influence of Tamil, Sinhalese, and India
  • Guests will also have the opportunity to name a star.
