award-winning photographer Oliver Clarke

05 September, 2023

Set on the private island near Male, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa is thrilled to announce a Marriott Bonvoy Moment that will captivate the hearts of its esteemed members, featuring the renowned British Underwater Photographer of the Year 2023, Oliver Clarke, who will embark on an exclusive underwater photography odyssey in the Maldives.

Oliver Clarke has garnered global acclaim for his awe-inspiring depictions of undersea life, particularly his breath-taking shots captured off the shores of Australia. From thousands of submissions by talented photographers, Oliver emerged as the British Underwater Photographer of the Year 2023. His photographs not only reveal the tranquil beauty of marine life but also convey a profound message about the need to conserve and protect these delicate ecosystems.

From October 20 to 24, 2023, two lucky Marriott Bonvoy bid winners will have the unique opportunity to partake in an immersive underwater photography class guided by the master himself. Additionally, they will embark on exhilarating dives at four diving spots including Naseem Thila, Kankan Thila, Maagiri, and Banana Reef of North Male Atoll, providing ample chances to capture the enigmatic beauty of sea creatures.

Complementing this bespoke experience, the Marriott Bonvoy Moment package encompasses a relaxing four-night stay in the resort’s lavish Overwater Bungalows, each offering an unforgettable escape into serenity. Adding to the allure of this is an exclusive sandbank picnic and beach dinner, showcasing the authentic flavours of Maldivian cuisine, thus elevating the overall experience for the discerning members. Moreover, the resort extends an exclusive invitation to participate in the resort’s signature coral propagation program, overseen by the in-house Marine Biologist, Kate Sheridan. This engagement underscores Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa’s steadfast commitment to fostering ecological balance and marine conservation.

Mohamed El Aghoury, General Manager of Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, expressed, “We are dedicated to curating exceptional experiences that resonate with our valued Marriott Bonvoy members. The collaboration with Oliver Clarke highlights our commitment to environmental stewardship, luxury, and artistry. We invite our esteemed members to join us in this remarkable journey, where they can connect with the underwater world in unprecedented ways.”

“As an underwater photographer, my goal has always been to unveil the serene enchantment of the ocean’s inhabitants to as wide an audience as possible,” Oliver Clarke shared. “It’s an honour to collaborate with Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa, a sanctuary that shares my commitment to environmental sustainability. This event allows me to extend this privilege to a select group of individuals who are not only passionate about art and beauty but also deeply committed to safeguarding our oceans.”

Marriott Bonvoy members are invited to bid for a chance to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the underwater realm through the lens of a true master at Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa by visiting the Marriott Bonvoy Moments site at https://moments.marriottbonvoy.com/en-us/moments/15329
