When planning my trip to the Maldives, I never expected for there to be so many activities to experience. While staying at the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma I tried out several of their popular guided activities. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.
The activity that stuck out the most was diving with sea turtles, astonishing. This was part of a Build Your Own Trip experience which included three activities: diving with turtles, visiting a small deserted island and spotting dolphins.
Seeing dolphins isn’t guaranteed but with the turtles it’s different because the resort knows exactly where they tend to feed. Seeing these majestic creatures was really an eye-opening experience. We swam for about 30 minutes, plenty of time to snap some great photos!
Another activity that I tried was the Sunset Cruise. This is fairly straightforward from the name. This guided activity consists of taking a medium-sized boat stocked with alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages to enjoy the sunset. The boat is also equipped with nets which hang off the side. This allowed guests to enjoy the water while cruising through the sea.
I also got to experience reefscaping. Reefscaping is the process of artificially rebuilding coral reefs. This is this was explained by their local marine biologist which I found quite interesting. We learned that the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma is working to rejuvenate the local coral reefs with metal-framed coral reefs.
If you enjoy nature at all you will love the Maldives, so many beautiful things to see it! When you visit the Holiday Inn Resort Kandooma, I would highly recommend you try some of these exciting activities for yourself.
