Male’ Maldives, 24th April 2022 – The Maldives’ playfully chic and effortlessly cool island resort, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives, introduces its first ever three-month-long ‘Go Deep Blue’ campaign. ‘Go Deep Blue’ celebrates the start of the manta season and diverse ocean discovery experiences that provide guests with the opportunity to get up-close and personal with the Maldives’ stunning marine life. The campaign will run from 1 May to 31 July 2022.
Located just a 35-minute speedboat journey from the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Hanifaru Bay, the resort allows guests the chance to be whisked away on their first sighting of mantas in all their glory and swim beside the gentle oceanic giants with the resort’s ‘Manta Snorkelling’ excursions. Moreover, guests will have the unique opportunity to partake in numerous activities and adventures, including snorkelling safaris, deep dives, turtle expeditions, sunset dolphin cruises and sea sports.
The resort is also excited to invite the young and the young-at-heart to join Saaidh Badheeu, a visiting local Maldivian artist, for workshops and classes from 2 May to 8 May. During these workshops, he will be demonstrating how to create beautiful paintings inspired by the undersea beauty of the Maldives using acrylic. An exhibition of his paintings is also up for sale, which can make great mementos for guests to keep and relive the good times of their visit to the Maldives.
The resort has also collaborated with Mula Maldives, a Maldivian-owned brand that prides itself on offering all-natural and coral-reef friendly sun care products, certified by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia. Mula Maldives’ SPF 50 Sunscreen and After Sun Gel will be available at The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives’ boutique. This recent step taken by the resort furthers its dedication to responsible and sustainable tourism practices, encouraging divers and snorkelers alike to use the reef-safe products, as they help to preserve the precious coral life in the Maldives and beyond.
Certified divers who are keen on deeper exploration of the colourful and stunning underwater world may opt for dive excursions that allow them to plunge into pristine marine ecosystems and uncover extraordinary dive sites. Diving courses are also available for aquatic lovers who wish to begin their dive journey, under the guidance of highly trained and well-qualified PADI Divemasters.
In addition to seeing an abundance of oceanic life in its natural habitat, guests at The Standard, Maldives can take part in the resort’s eco-inspired initiatives such as tree planting, island clean-ups, and supporting the coral reef regeneration project from the Dive Centre team.
