Euro Divers to set up new centre at Dhigali Maldives

Euro Divers has announced plans to open a new dive centre in the Maldives next year.

The new centre, which will be based at Dhigali Maldives in Raa Atoll, is set to open on 5 May, 2017.

According to Euro Divers, as well as diving, a range of alternative water sports will also be offered.

Euro-Divers Maldives maintains several dive centres in Maldives, since it started its operations 40 years ago in Male’ City.

Offering scuba diving in some of the best scuba diving resorts as well as water sports activities in selected resorts, the company has a total of 11 dive shops across the country.

Dhigali will be the newest edition to its flagship stops. Opening in May 2017, Dhigali sits in the remote Raa Atoll but can be reached by a scenic seaplane journey of just 40 minutes from Malé airport.

There’s an excellent house reef in swimming distance on one side of the island and a large lagoon on the other side for water sports, plus a stunning sandbank at the tip of the island.

Rooms will have minimalist and neutral décor, with warm tones of browns and creams, modern furnishings and plush natural fabrics. The vast choice here will include Beach Bungalows that are just steps from the shore, Beach Villas with Pool, overwater Water Villas that sit on stilts close to the colourful house reef, and Lagoon Villas with Pool that have views across the calm lagoon.

The new resort is operated by Universal Resorts Maldives.
