Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa to Host Award Winning Photographer Oliver Clark

Located on the private island of Furanafushi, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa is 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.
