In the midst of an aura so serene, an ambiance so tranquil; imagine you with your loved one in the middle of indigenous nature, witnessing an exquisite experience of live Sea Turtle hatch-lings at the One&Only Reethi Rah Maldives.
Craft your love story at this magnificent island resort where time stands still and moves at your own pace. Holding hands, walking on the soft beaches, gentle waves splashing nearby and the soothing tropical breeze calming your nerves.
And, among all this, imagine being a part of an experience of meeting rarest breeds of Sea Turtles and their miniature beings. Indeed, a memory you would want to capture for a lifetime and who better to share it with, but your significant other.
Not many can actually tick mark an experience of meeting Sea Turtles during their vacation, unless visiting a city Aquarium.
How about enjoying an exquisite tete-a-tete with these gentle sea beings!
Yes, you can, indeed. For all the aquamarine inquisitives and lovers, One&Only Reethi Rah Maldives has been hosting female sea turtles belonging to two of the most rare species; the hawksbill sea turtle (critically endangered) and the green sea turtle (endangered). These breeds are visiting the resorts beaches to make their nests.
The last one of such experience witnessed by the resort was in the year 2013 and hence, the excitement this year is manifold. Sea turtles only lay eggs every 2-4 years, laying anywhere between 50-200 eggs per nest. Eggs usually take anywhere between 45-60 days to hatch, with the hatching occurring at night or in the early hours of the morning.
Sharing the same thrill with the guests, the island resort has launched several scintillating packages for you all to take one more step closer to nature at its best.
Available on every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday, one can visit the ‘Turtle Reef’ - their feeding ground reef to snorkel alongside the endangered Hawksbill turtles. Grab this chance to see and swim with these and other beautiful marine animals in the wild.
Time: 9.30am to 12.30pm
Open on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, this snorkelling experience will bring you to witnessing the most natural underwater marine life. One can explore and float around Sea Turtles, anemones, sea-stars, corals and lots of colorful reef fishes.
