Male’, Maldives, 15th December 2022 – Newly built Clarks Exotica Maldives invites guests to join them for a new year celebration with a special promotion. Nestled in the UNESCO protected biosphere of Baa Atoll, Kamadhoo Island overlooking the Indian Ocean is famous as a yoga retreat destination, surrounded by the most beautiful beach with white sand all over amidst crystal clear blue water. The island’s natural environment is perfect for guests, whether they like to kick back, relax and take in the stunning beauty of the island and surrounding reef, or adventures – the island offers the best balance of both.
Clarks Exotica Maldives is accessible from Male’ to Dharavandhoo by a 20-minute domestic plane ride. Following this, guests can opt for a 15-munite speedboat transfer from Dharavandhoo to Kamadhoo. This journey to Kamadhoo island offers guests a scenic view of the Maldives islands and a true taste of local traveling style from one island to another.
Kamadhoo Island is one of the inhabited islands of the administrative region Baa Atoll, and is home to a handful of extraordinary, thriving (but fragile) reefs that are a bucket-list dream for diving and snorkeling enthusiasts. The Baa Atoll is most famous for the opportunity to swim with marine megafauna – whale sharks, dolphins, and the world’s largest aggregation of manta rays. Each year, an astounding spectacle unfolds at Hanifaru Bay, as hundreds of manta rays and whale sharks gather to frenziedly feast on the nutrient-rich zooplankton that funnels into the atoll’s bays. This feeding extravaganza occurs during the southwest monsoon from June to November, but the mesmerizing underwater life attracts tourists year-round.
Recently named the World’s Leading Luxury Honeymoon Resort and Indian Ocean’s Leading Resort at the 2022 World Travel Awards, Vakkaru Maldives pairs luxurious accommodation with a multitude of unique facilities and personalised experiences for the ultimate island getaway. With Domingos joining the resort for his third residency, Vakkaru Maldives hopes to give guests a great wellness experience going into the new year.
