If you’re planning your next winter holiday, here are five reasons to choose the Maldives and a luxury yacht charter aboard NAWAIMAA.
You’ll never tire of ‘socially distancing’ as you cruise from one breath-taking island to the next: Reconnect with nature and explore the exotic wonders of Maldives at your own pace, letting your expert crew handle the travel plans while you try the cocktails and watch the world go by from the flybridge.
1. Stunning deserted beaches
If you’ve been dreaming of warm and sunny shores and observing pastel-coloured scenery from the comfort of your very own hammock, then the Maldives is calling to you. Leave behind the urban jungle of Malé and the other inhabited islands to visit white sand beaches lapped by turquoise shores. The gentle incline into the crystal clear water makes the Maldives an ideal location for young families, and the open waters are great for water-skiing and powering through the water on the jet ski. Best of all, you’ll have it all to yourselves for days of beach games and sunbathing, and meals by candlelight beside the gentle waves.
2. Impressive wildlife
There are stories of Scuba divers and snorkelers swimming with the giant peaceful whale sharks that pass through the Indian Ocean – and this is just one possible encounter on a Maldives luxury yacht charter. Manta rays, dolphins and turtles also grace the shallow reefs known as thilas and gilis, and a thousand different species of fish – including parrotfish and clownfish – dart around the lagoons.
On land, frigate birds, grey herons and white terns might be seen along the shores, however for the most part you will truly have the coast to yourselves.
3. Active outdoor lifestyle
The Maldives is a favourite destination for fishing and Scuba diving, and the local guides and crew of NAWAIMAA will ensure that you make the most of your time on an action-packed itinerary. Fish for your lunch at the Mulaku Atoll, learn to surf or go for a snorkel or Scuba dive amongst the thriving corals.
Luxury yacht NAWAIMAA has plenty of outdoor space and a great collection of water toys to keep everyone active. She comes with a water slide and inflatable and towable toys that will give confidence to all ages while creating cherished memories with family and friends.
4. Luxury shopping and culture
Your luxury yacht charter doesn’t have to be entirely spent at sea and culture lovers and shoppers will find plenty of indulgences in Malé: Spend a couple of hours perusing the boutiques and markets, visit the old and new museums and art gallery around Sultan Park, then end the afternoon with a couple of spa massage treatments to leave you feeling refreshed before an evening socialising in the bars and cafes or back on board your luxury yacht.
5. Complete privacy
With 26 atolls to cover amongst 298 km2 (that’s 115 square miles), there will be plenty of time to sit back, relax and let your Captain take you to the best locations in the charter grounds. NAWAIMAA has a flybridge Jacuzzi, plenty of sunbeds and two choice places to dine and lounge in the shade throughout the afternoon, and the air-conditioned lounge will surely beckon after a full day of swimming and playing on the white sand beaches.
The accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests across four beautiful en-suite cabins, which include a full-beam Master suite, a VIP stateroom and two twin cabins that each have a Pullman berth.
This powerful motor yacht has a faster than average cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 30 knots, so guests will spend less time in transit and more time packing in the sights, sounds and sensations of these Indian Ocean idylls.
Make your plans for the holiday of a lifetime aboard a luxury yacht with a proven reputation with charter guests.
