Join Hurawalhi Maldives’s marine biologists on the reefs of the Maldives

Hurawalhi Maldives calls upon visitors to join Hurawalhi’s Marine Biologists on the reefs of the Maldives.

Hurawalhi is not just a resort – it’s one that strives to make a difference when it comes to the environment. An important role in the island’s sustainability endeavors is played by the Marine Biology Centre, which is set up together with Prodivers Maldives and Manta Trust, and is the atoll’s most comprehensive ocean conservation facility.


With resident marine biologists combining diving and snorkeling excursions with projects such as coral nurseries and local community outreach – not to forget the ongoing manta ray and turtle research – guests have a unique opportunity to learn more about Maldives’ coral reef from the people who possess vast knowledge about this incredible environment.

Coral reefs of the Maldives deemed the best year-round diving and snorkeling destination in the Indian Ocean, are proof that the country’s striking beauty extends to the underwater. To sate the hunger for adventure,  guests can add an excursion or two, group or private, with Hurawalhi’s passionate marine biologists and have the opportunity to meet some 380 manta rays identified by the property so far.

Set on an enchanting private island in the pristine Lhaviyani Atoll in the Maldives, with 90-villas the adults-only luxury resort is as brilliant as the ocean that laps against its beaches. The property has the world’s largest undersea restaurant ‘5.8’, which is elusive gastronomical heaven: the spectacular 5.8 dazzles and delights diners with a multi-course tasting extravaganza, garnished with a state-of-the-art location.
