Retreat location

This retreat will take place on the island of Maalhos in the Maldives. Located in Baa Atoll, in the heart of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Maalhos is a small and beautiful local island barely a kilometre in length, with a population of about 500 people. The dense vegetation allows not only privacy but the opportunity to experience untouched nature and the genuine and natural Maldives along with all the amenities expected from a modern day accommodation option.

The island is surrounded by white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. In the spectacular house reef with rich flora and fauna you can find plenty of fish, turtles and sometimes even dolphins passing by. The house reef is accessible from the beach and is perfect for snorkeling and diving.

The lush vegetation accentuated with swaying palm trees make this island one of the most naturally beautiful islands in the Maldives. You can also find stunning sand banks which we will visit during the retreat only a 15 minute boat ride away. The charming locals, the untouched beauty and simplicity will leave you wanting to come back and will definitely make your Maldives dreams come true!

Maalhos is located 20mins away from the world famous site Hanifaru Bay. The reef at the bay is like a funnel and from May to November planktons gets trapped in the funnel-like reef and the concentration of planktons attracts schools of manta rays. This is the world’s largest feeding station known to exist, it doesn't happen every day, as it depends on the moon and the currents but when it happens it is very special indeed.
