As I write to you under the impossibly blue sky, and with the resort surrounded by flat, mirror-like ocean conditions, I am reminded of the magic that a Maldives holiday brings – I believe it’s one of the few destinations in the world that looks better in reality than in the glossy travel magazines. It’s always great to see the look of pure wonder on the faces of guests as they appreciate the natural beauty of the Maldives. Those of us who get the chance to visit such pristine places on our planet, see first-hand what we need to protect, and at the end of March we celebrated, together with our guests, Earth Hour. We joined millions across the globe in switching off the power, creating a wave of darkness and shining a spotlight on the need to protect our home, planet Earth.
This April is an important month to many of our team and guests; the start of April marked the beginning of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar where our Muslim team members fast during daylight hours. Holidaying here during Ramadan will not affect your stay, our team are very used to working during the fasting hours and we ensure they have a plentiful Iftar meal to look forward to after the sun has set. The upcoming Easter celebrations in the middle of this month are set to be ‘eggciting’ with lots of fun to be had by all who join us – there are many activities to enjoy and even a traditional Easter Egg hunt, we hope the Easter Bunny manages to get back in time to visit all of you at home too!
Snorkellers have been delighted by the return of our resident stingray to the lagoon, it has been paying regular visits and creating many ‘wow’ moments for our guests. There are lots of great snorkelling opportunities on the reefs of Lhaviyani Atoll, so make sure you plan some time in for adventures with Prodivers so they can take you to the snorkel hotspots to see not only stingrays but turtles, colourful fish and maybe even sharks!
If you’re looking for a relaxed destination that has plenty to do for all the family plus the opportunity for romantic evenings under the stars, we can make it happen and our special offers for both this summer and the winter season bring your stress-free getaway even closer. Many of you are jumping at the chance to book now that the requirement for PCR tests has been dropped so if you want to join us don’t leave it too late to book!
I hope to welcome you to Innahura soon.
