Raffles Maldives Meradhoo

25 Jan, 2021

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo adds exciiting new experience to their plethora of once in a life time: Whale Shark encounters.

This year, the luxury resort invites marine-life enthusiasts to marvel at the sight of whale sharks in the healthy reefs of the Gaafu Alifu Atoll.

The new experience will take guests out on a traditional Dhoni across the warm Indian Ocean to meet the magnificent spotted sharks which are up to 12 metres in length.

Guests can embark on this bespoke journey and expect to encounter up to three whale sharks, the largest fish in the world.

The Raffles marine-life biologist will be on-hand to equate guests with the incredible creatures, as well as identify passing sea life – including turtles, dolphins, and manta rays, all rich in the vast expanse of ocean.

Raffles Maldives Meradhoo has been welcoming travellers in search of true tranquillity and complete escapism since its opening in 2019, and offers access to some of the most pristine reefs in the Maldives.

A Marine Butler is available to every guest and will happily lead snorkelling tours of the resort’s two remarkable and endlessly fascinating house reefs.

Gaafu Alifu atoll is one of the world’s largest and deepest atolls and the astoundingly clear, blissfully warm waters immediately surrounding the Raffles resort teem with a kaleidoscope of colourful fish.

The Whale Shark Encounter at Raffles Maldives Meradhoo is available to book now and is USD 500++ per person (rate is subject to 10% service charge and 12% government taxes). The two-hour encounter starts in the evening and includes an extensive array of canapés and beverages.
