On all the resorts you will find on Rihaala, provisions for Jummah prayers are available on resort, meaning you don’t have to worry finding somewhere to pray. With beautiful turquoise waters, there is simply nowhere like the Maldives and its wonderful marine life. From diving and snorkelling experiences to glass bottom boats and sunset cruises there is something for everyone.

Highlights

Upon arrival at your resort, you’ll find a wide selection of experiences to enjoy. The resorts featured on Rihaala all provide private spa treatment rooms with male and female therapists. All resorts featured on Rihaala serve a wide selection of halal dining options as standard, but for those extra special experiences, you could try the underwater restaurant at the Conrad Rangali. 
 
Your daily activities in the Maldives will vary depending on the resort you’re staying at. Nearly all resorts will have non-motorised water sports available like paddle boarding or kayaking. Motorised water sports are less frequent in order to protect the marine ecosystems of the islands. Many resorts will offer a cruise excursion and maybe a chance to try some local hand line fishing. Most resorts will have a PADI diving school, so if you would like to learn, beginners can earn their basic diving certification in the Maldives.
