SPA Cenvaree

Relax as never before and indulge in a rejuvenating treatment at Spa Cenvaree. There are luxurious rooms for two and those who prefer individual treatments, as well as an outdoor area for underwater relaxation. Masters practice unique Thai massage and programmes on Vichy hydrotherapy equipment, in pools with hot and cold water.

Yoga classes are available on the beach and in the fitness centre. All treatments are based on Thailand’s unique heritage and modern rejuvenation techniques.

Great leisure for everyone

  • House reef and sunken ship. The lagoon and coral reef of the resort is a great place to experience the exotic of the Indian Ocean in full. A few meters from the villas, there is a coral garden in the lagoon, where biologists grow unique corals. These corals replenish the reef to preserve biological diversity. Divers will be able to explore the wreck of the Kudhimaa, a freighter that has been sunk with the purpose to become home to hundreds of species of marine inhabitants! The island has its own PADI dive centre, where a team of experienced instructors will educate beginners and help experienced divers learn new skills.
  • Water sports. The resort offers leisure activities for guests of all ages and preferences - windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, canoeing, pedalos and more. Non-motorized water sports are included in the Ultimate All-Inclusive programme.
  • Daily excursions. There are a lot of them, and everyone should try each! A snorkelling tour is an easy way to experience marine life. It is suitable for the whole family and will delight children with parrotfish, turtles, manta rays and many other inhabitants of the underwater world. A traditional dawn dhoni boat cruise in azure waters with champagne and light snacks is the best way to enjoy the purple Maldivian sunsets. And swimming with whale sharks and dolphins is for the bravest! And, of course, it is worth visiting the capital of Male with its historical and cultural attractions.
  • Sports grounds and gym. You love weight training or prefer outdoor games in the open air? On this island, you can do both.

Fun for your children

The resort has Camp Safari, a kids club for children from 4 to 9 years old. It’s a wonderful and safe place where experienced staff organizes fun and educational activities for young guests of the resort. For older children, there is a special E-ZONE play area. Babysitting services are available on request and at a charge.

How to get there: 20 minutes by domestic flight from Male international airport to Maamigili Airport and then 20 minutes by speedboat directly to the hotel
