A 3-day, 2-night trip covering the best of the Baa Atoll, including culture, relaxation, and marine life. Look for dolphins and live the castaway life with a picnic on a sandbank. Snorkel and dive reefs teeming with fish and coral. Visit Goidhoo’s gardens and coffee shops as you learn about the history of the three islands.
After breakfast, we will welcome you on-board Soneva in Aqua where we will set sail to the deserted island for reef snorkelling (passing by turtle point and dolphin lookout), followed by a Castaway Picnic. In the afternoon, enjoy a spa treatment from our Soneva in Aqua spa menu on the beach, in the privacy of your cabin or on the upper deck. As the sun sets, relax on our spacious outdoor loungers with sparkling wine and canapés while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Baa Atoll. Don’t forget to look out for dolphins! When you’re ready, a four-course meal will be served. Enjoy learning about the very unique Maldivian sky, which reveals stars and constellations from both the northern and southern hemispheres, before retiring for the evening.
Start fresh in the morning with sunrise yoga on the foredeck followed by a short sail to the islands or reefs of your choice. In keeping with our exceptional culinary standards, our on-board chef offers only the freshest, world-class ingredients for all of your on board meals, and can even cook up an on-shore BBQ on Castaway Island. With two snorkelling sessions per day, simply inform the crew what you’d like to see and they’ll take you to a hidden reef unknown to both visitors and locals in the Maldives. For Open Water certified divers, custom packages and dive sites can be discussed based on ability in collaboration with the Soleni Dive Centre.
There are unlimited islands, sandbanks and reefs to explore within the Baa Atoll. For the adventurous, Goidhoo offers the largest lagoon in the atoll with three islands that offer local excursions, guest houses, sandbanks, uninhabited islands and more. As an important historical site and former prison island, guests can soak in the history while also visiting the many gardens and coffee shops. Depending on the season, dolphin, manta ray and pilot whale sightings are common.
In the morning, enjoy a sunrise Tai Chi session on the deck followed by breakfast, before returning to Soneva Fushi.
