Amilla Fushi resort makes the most of the Maldives manta ray season

Luxury Maldives resort Amilla Fushi has introduced a new Manta Adventure for guests to make the most of the Baa Atoll’s manta ray migration season. The island resort’s dedicated Marine Hub will offer boat excursions out into the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve to swim with manta rays, plus a "Manta on-call" hotline reporting sightings and organising spontaneous trips.

Between June and November travellers have an excellent chance of spotting manta rays in the Baa Atoll, when they migrate in their hundreds to feed in the atoll's plankton-rich waters. Located in the heart of Baa Atoll, Amilla Fushi’s diving and watersports hub is an ideal base for manta watching.

The new Manta Adventure excursion offers guests a unique opportunity to swim with manta rays at Hanifaru Bay, a renowned protected marine area and the world's largest natural manta ray feeding ground. If guests sign up to Amilla's exclusive manta hotline, the resort says they will never miss an opportunity for a close-up with the rays, with speedboat outings organised the minute there is a sighting. There are also scheduled excursions on alternate days.

Amilla's Marine Hub is a hive of water-based activities. There are guided excursions to explore the island’s house reef, including its renowned Blue Hole dive site; a marine biology course highlighting the area's rich underwater biodiversity; water sports including jet skiing, RS sailing, paddleboarding, X-Jetpacks and Seabobs; plus a fleet of private charter vessels for guests to explore the archipelago.

The resort’s resident marine biologist monitors and approves every marine-related pursuit to ensure that the Baa Atoll’s environment is protected and preserved. There is also a programme of excursions available to guests who want to participate in local marine conservation projects.

The private island resort has 67 villas including overwater cottages and large beach houses. It’s reached via a 30-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport. As well as swimming pools, beaches and a kids club, the complex has a range of restaurants located in its informal food hub – Bazaar – and fine dining at its over-water restaurant Feeling Koi.
