With the sun having made a much-welcomed appearance over the last few weeks, many of us have our minds cast firmly on a summer spent basking on sandy beaches alongside crystal clear waters. Well, The Standard has you covered.
Inviting you to the pearly white beaches of the Maldives, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives is opening the doors to its serene array of residencies this summer as a part of their Go Deep Blue campaign. Running across a three-month-long time period between May and July, the hotel is looking to celebrate the wonders of manta season by giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal with some of the most beautiful wildlife surrounding the hotel. A short 35 minute trip to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Hanifaru Bay will take you to the event of the season where you will be given the chance to snorkel side by side with majestic sea creatures such as dolphins and turtles and witness them in their natural habitat. And, should the notion of taking a deep dip into the vast waters have you feeling slightly unnerved, fear not, as certified divers are on hand with diving courses and accompanied excursions to offer.
If you’d prefer to appreciate this once-in-a-lifetime experience from the comfort of solid ground, a local creative by the name of Saaidh Badheeu is looking to the wonders of aquatic beauty and channelling them into a series of workshops from which you’ll be invited to master the art of painting with acrylic. And, should all of the above render you awestruck by the surroundings and have you wanting to contribute to its preservation, a variety of environmentally conscious initiatives including tree planting and island clean-ups are available for you to get your hands stuck into.
While we are sure that we have already inspired you to get to booking, The Standard isn’t finished with its offerings. Serving up the Manta Magic package, private villas are up for grabs for 30% off their original rates, meaning that you can bask in all of the island’s beauty for an irresistibly affordable price. Standing as the only destination worthy of a visit this summer, The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives has got your upcoming holidays covered.
