Kandolhu Maldives welcomes new dive team
Kandolhu Maldives has welcomed a new dive team, Rita and Leo.
“If they’re not underwater, you can find them at Noovilu Sports, ready to take you diving and to explore the beautiful underwater world that surrounds us! Don’t hesitate to stop by and say hello and learn more about the amazing experiences available to you today,” the resort said, in an announcement.
After spending too long as a lab geek studying biomedicine, Rita decided it was enough and that the time to live the real life had come. Now, she enjoys most of her days with her fish friends and other marine creatures. She has always loved travelling and she likes social interactions with different cultures. Amongst other things, she is so in love with the ocean that she got her local skipper licence without even driving a boat! She is so comfortable underwater that her colleagues at Kandolhu call her, “The sea chameleon”. Seeing a manta ray makes her so happy that she can even change colour!
A lover of sports both in the water and snow, Leo likes “sensations” as he always says. So, bring him diving in ripping current (even without fins, which happens when he forgets them in the dive centre!) and he will be the happiest man on earth! Besides being a scuba diving instructor since 2015, he is also a rafting, climbing, snowboard, and sail instructor with the French Federation. Very social, Leo loves speaking to people and telling them about his experiences.
Ringed by an intricate yet stunning coral garden teeming with colourful reef fish, Kandolhu is a patch of paradise hidden in the North Ari Atoll and accessible by a 25-minute scenic seaplane flight. A member of the Small Luxury Hotels, Kandolhu is cleverly arranged to offer maximum privacy yet all within the space of only 200 square metres. The resort offers just 30 villas in five different styles — Jacuzzi Beach Villas, Pool Villas, Duplex Pool Villas, Ocean Villas and Ocean Pool Villas — that feature local architecture with modern interiors.
Kandolhu is home to five gourmet restaurants, boasting the highest restaurant-to-room ratio in the Maldives. The ambience and menu of each restaurant varies greatly: be entertained with a live show in Banzai, the Japanese teppanyaki, delight in an array of fresh seafood on offer in Sea Grill, sit back and gaze at the sparkling Indian Ocean from the Market or enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner in Olive with modern Mediterranean dishes on the card.
The intimate island resort has a spa, and offers a range of recreational activities, including diving, snorkelling, water sports and excursions.
