Imagine a week-long of doing...nothing! Being pampered by a crew of 10 people and 2 fabulous Art In Voyage hosts, join us on our yacht as we sail the waters of the Maldives, hopping from one Atoll to the next. Jump on a paddleboard or a jet ski, or just lay on the white sand surrounded by some of the world's most pristine water. And then there are the massages along the way, the sunset sessions of dancing and cocktails on the beach, the scuba diving and snorkeling, and the daily (optional) yoga sessions. Let's not forget about the incredible cuisine prepared by our local chef, using the freshest local ingredients and spices.
So we lied, it's not exactly "nothing", but doesn't it sound like a week in heaven?
Board, unpack, and worry about absolutely nothing for a week (other than having to decide between a cocktail or wine, paddle boarding or kayaking, a massage, or a facial). Limited to 16 guests, this private Art In Voyage yacht is sailing The Maldives and discovering some of the most beautiful islands in the world, for your pleasure!
Our yacht and its crew of 10 incredible individuals is a great morale booster! Live the grand celebrity lifestyle for a week, pampered by an attentive staff and and a local Chef ready to serve you some of the best cuisine inspired by the spices of India and flavors of the world.
On arrival in paradise, you are met by our VIP staff for a private meet and greet before being whisked away to our yacht. Relax, go for a dip, or grab a cocktail and set back as we start our sailing northward. Tonight, our welcome dinner is held on a private island, beneath the stars.
We spend the day sailing the incredible atoll of Baa, and its deserted and private islands. Our day is filled with water activities, sunbathing, and snorkeling (or scuba diving for those of you interested in going deeper). Lunch is served feet in the water, sipping on some of your favorite cocktails. A day of nothing but relaxation and fun. Tonight, dinner is inspired by flavors and spices only found in the Maldives.
We continue our sailing through the Atoll of Baa, where you can fully immerse in the wild, natural beauty of the lagoon and UNESCO world biosphere reserve. After lunch, we stop by one of our favorite spas on a private island. An afternoon of pampering awaits, with a choice of massages or treatments. Tonight, dinner is served on board.
We slowly make our way to our next Atoll, Ari. We sail through the incredible lagoons of Baa and North Ari, passing some of the Maldives most colorful coral reefs. We stop along the way for a beautiful beach picnic with time to take a swim, kayak, or have a few cocktails. This afternoon, discover rays and various local marine wildlife should you wish to join the snorkeling experience. We end this dreamy day with dinner on the beach, beneath the stars.
We spend a bit more time at Ari Atoll (south side) where the diving (or snorkeling) is absolutely divine! It boasts incredible 'Thilas' (underwater mountains), both within the atoll and in the channels. There are also four fascinating wreck dives. This area of the Maldives has become famous for the regular all-year-round appearance of whale sharks. Mantas and sharks are also prevalent at many locations, with Madivaru being the most documented site for mantas. Dinner is served on board.
Felidhe Atoll is more isolated and less developed than its counterparts in the Maldives. It offers fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling and remote, uninhabited islands and sandbanks. Expect a warm, friendly welcome from the islanders who always impress us with their hospitable ways. For these reasons, Felidhe Atoll is a popular destination for safari dhonis and memorable trips. There are not many Thila dives in this atoll, with most of the diving being in the 26 channels on the eastern side.
As we sail towards Vaavu Atoll, we make a lunch stop at one of the deserted islands. Vaavu is the smallest of all atolls in the Maldives and the lack of people led to pristine white beaches and stunning natural scenery. Even among the Maldivians (who are already difficult to impress with turquoise pictures of paradise), these islands are famous for their natural beauty. Vaavu is also known in the Maldives as the best fishing spot (blue marlin, sailfish, dog-tuna fish, and Giant Trevally). Tonight, we hold our farewell dinner on one of our favorite beaches, dancing in the moonlight and reflecting on the magical week.
This morning, we have our final breakfast on board before transfers are organized to the airport for flights home. Why not extend your stay at one of our stunning private island resorts? Or how about taking a short flight over to Sri Lanka to discover an island of wonder and mystery that we can just never get enough of! You are in the area after all, so why not make a pitstop?
