Every day at Hurawalhi Maldives is worthy of a celebration in honour of the ocean but on World Oceans Day we had some extra special events which were enjoyed by our guests and team alike. The ocean takes center stage during any holiday in the Maldives, it’s endless shades of blue form the back drops to countless social media posts of stunning photos and for water babies, it’s the ultimate playground with world-class snorkelling and scuba diving opportunities as well as watersports galore.
On 8th June, we kicked off the celebrations with breakfast under the sea at our spectacular 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, joined by Lois our resident marine biologist. Guests who took the opportunity to dine with us were able to discuss all things ocean related including our remarkable reefs, spectacular seagrass and the future of our oceans, we were privileged to also be joined by a passing shark! All proceeds from the event went to the Marine Biology Centre’s shark research project.
Snorkellers jumped in for action on the house reef in the form of a fun game of Ocean Bingo, 25 guests took part with lots of excitement in the race to shout ‘BINGO!’ first. First prize was lunch for two at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, second prize was an excursion to Dream Island, and third was an indulgent massage at the spa.
Thank you to all who joined us for World Oceans Day, we hope you had as much fun as we did! If all of this talk of warm sparkling oceans makes you want to jump in for some adventures of your own, check out the Hurawalhi special offers and you could be celebrating some ocean time soon!
