Ayada Maldives announces diving packages and a competition to win a week’s diving holiday in partnership with Suunto
Maldives.net.mv – Surrounded by outstanding coral reefs that have barely been visited by humans, the five star Ayada Maldives resort is a paradise for snorkelers and divers alike. So good in fact, that Suunto, the famed Finnish manufacturer of sports watches and diving computers, has chosen the area to shoot its annual advertising campaign in January. To celebrate this natural wealth of underwater beauty on the luxury resort’s doorstep, Ayada Maldives has launched a diving package valid until April 2015 priced at US$5,999 for one person and a competition to win a week’s holiday during the Suunto photoshoot.
“Ayada Maldives is in Gaafu Dhaalu Atoll in the south of the country, which, because of its outstanding coral reefs, is gaining a reputation as one of the best areas of the country to go diving and snorkeling,” said general manager Zafer Agacan. “You don’t have to go far to find untouched reefs teeming with fish and other wildlife that may never have seen a human before. Even our house reef [the coral reef that surrounds the resort] is a pleasure to dive and snorkel”.
The six-night package at Ayada Maldives includes six dives, accommodation in a 103-square metre beach villa with private pool and butler service; daily breakfast and dinner; and return transfers to/from Ayada Maldives including a personal meet and greet service and use of the private lounge. The same package including ten dives is US$6,399 for six nights and an additional guest staying with the diver pays only US$385 for their holiday (dives not included).
As part of its campaign, Suunto is offering divers around the world the chance to win an all-expenses paid VIP trip to Ayada Maldives. Three divers will have the chance to join the Suunto team at Ayada Maldives in January 2015 where they can try out new Suunto equipment and dive unexplored reefs.
To win the free one-week diving trip, divers have share their most memorable diving moment on social media channels or fill out the online form on Suunto.com. It could be an inspiring image or video that captures a memorable encounter or it could be an underwater selfie exploring a secluded reef, just so long as it captures the joy of diving. There are three ways to participate:
- Post and tag an image or video #SuuntoDive and #Paradise on Instagram or Twitter
- Upload an image or video link as a comment on the official #SuuntoDive #Paradise Facebook post
- Complete the form on the Suunto website and hit submit.
The contest opens on November 19th and closes on December 8th. The three winners will be announced mid-December on Suunto.com. The trip to the Maldives is scheduled for January 10th-17th, 2015. The full terms & conditions can be read here.
Winners of the trip will also have the opportunity to test the latest Suunto dive computers, such as the Suunto EON Steel and other outdoor products. With the Suunto team on hand, they will receive an expert demonstration on how to use all products and be able to talk to the people who made them.
