Relax on Vakarufalhi

Vakarufalhi Maldives

Vakarufalhi Maldives

After a hard day soaking up the rays, diving with mantas and whalesharks, Vakarufahli has the perfect way to unwind.

The spa is run by Duniye Spa (the same company prior to the renovation), who also have facilities on other islands in the Maldives as well as in the Seychelles. Instead of the 3 treatment rooms on the beach  (”old Vakarufalhi”) they now offer 6 stunning over-the-water treatment rooms. The photo shows the Spa at sunset – don’t you wish you were here???

Malek, Babul, Alhas

Kuredu Maldives

If you have ever been to the dive center on Kuredu, chances are you will remember Babul, Alhas and Malek.  “The Boys” from Bangaldesh are the cornerstone of the daily operations of the dive center, helping to ensure that it runs smoothly. The infectious smiles and the fact that they seem to be willing to help out with almost any problems our guest might have, has made them instantly recognisable around the center.

Sand Turtle

Turtle Komandoo Maldives

Well, you know… Komandoo is also known as Turtle island.  In fact this is the logo of the island, a turtle. So here we are! We have a nice “sand” turtle done by one of the guests with a lot of sand and patience…  If this one lays eggs in the sand, we wonder how the hatchlings will look like!!

We are happy to be back and join you just in time for this years BOOT Show. During the next few days we will proudly show off and present to you the new and even more beautiful Vakarufalhi Island Resort which is now run by T-Club, a brand of Hotelplan.
We would like to introduce you to the latest members of the Vakarufalhi team who can be seen in the photo. Antonio and Stefano are both from Italy, while Sobah from the Maldives can be seen at the front.  Some of you will no doubt recognise Petra sitting on top of the boys, who has been helping out with the reopening of the dive center.
The “T” in “T-Club” actually stands for tea time! True to tradition, every afternoon on the sun deck of the bar, its possible to try different kind of teas from Sri Lanka and meet the T-Club animation staff.

Boot 2010

Boot 2010

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work at a dive center in the Maldives?  What’s it really like to work in the sun, with the ocean waves lapping gently on the beach, bikini clad women and suntanned guys walking up and down the beach all day, spending the days snorkeling and diving in the incredible Indian Ocean….

On each day this week, to coincide with Germany’s largest dive show – ” The BOOT Show”, we will tell you exactly what its like!  Check back every day as we introduce you to some of the departments, helping to provide an insight into our daily life. (more…)

It’s All Shiny And New!

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Despite the warm weather, the blue ocean and endless Manta sightings at the moment, we have actually been knuckling down to bring you something new and exciting!  Welcome to the PD Blog!

This Blog will replace the previous ‘Latest News’ section on the website, but don’t worry, all the old links will still bring you to the latest articles, and all of the previous news has been safely stored in a newly created News Archive.  One of the great things about switching to this new Blog is that we want you to be involved in this website as well.  So when we tell you about the 20+ Mantas at Fushivaru Thila, you can now back us up – adding your own experiences of your dives and snorkeling trips with us.  We will explain more about this shortly, because this is not all that we have changed!  (more…)
