Beyond swimming in our stunning house reef, enjoy excursions to the famous Hanifaru Bay UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. This protected marine sanctuary is the largest feeding and breeding hotspot in the world for manta rays and whale sharks, which at times congregate here in their hundreds. Snorkelling amongst these magnificent creatures is an experience not to be missed.
Alila Kothaifaru Maldives is also close to Vaadhoo Island, one of the best spots to witness the spectacular “Sea of Stars” phenomenon, an extraordinary sight to behold. Whether relaxing on a sun-drenched beach, exploring the natural flora that thrives on our lush green island, or indulging your adventurous spirit, let nature be your host.
