Luxury Yoga Retreat in Maldives

  • 7 days with instruction
  • Located on the outskirts of North Ari Atoll, Gangehi Island is a small luxury resort reached by seaplane. This secluded peaceful island has lush vegetation; on one side it is bordered by a coral reef close to the shore, on the other it opens into a broad lagoon. Protected by its barrier reef, the island is a pearl of white sand, shaded by coconut palms and surrounded by crystal-clear sea. The marine life is one of rare beauty - an amazing variety of tropical fish swim around coral along with marine turtles and many others. Apart from thousands of multi-colored fish in all shapes and sizes and the corals themselves, there is a whole separate world populated by turtles, manta rays, sharks, and dolphins. Be sure to experience this luxurious yoga holiday in paradise with Secret Paradise Maldives!
