5 reasons to discover the Maldives with luxury yacht Nawaimaa


If you’re planning your next winter holiday, here are five reasons to choose the Maldives and a luxury yacht charter aboard NAWAIMAA.

You’ll never tire of ‘socially distancing’ as you cruise from one breath-taking island to the next: Reconnect with nature and explore the exotic wonders of Maldives at your own pace, letting your expert crew handle the travel plans while you try the cocktails and watch the world go by from the flybridge.

1. Stunning deserted beaches

If you’ve been dreaming of warm and sunny shores and observing pastel-coloured scenery from the comfort of your very own hammock, then the Maldives is calling to you. Leave behind the urban jungle of Malé and the other inhabited islands to visit white sand beaches lapped by turquoise shores. The gentle incline into the crystal clear water makes the Maldives an ideal location for young families, and the open waters are great for water-skiing and powering through the water on the jet ski. Best of all, you’ll have it all to yourselves for days of beach games and sunbathing, and meals by candlelight beside the gentle waves.

2. Impressive wildlife

There are stories of Scuba divers and snorkelers swimming with the giant peaceful whale sharks that pass through the Indian Ocean – and this is just one possible encounter on a Maldives luxury yacht charter. Manta rays, dolphins and turtles also grace the shallow reefs known as thilas and gilis, and a thousand different species of fish – including parrotfish and clownfish – dart around the lagoons.

On land, frigate birds, grey herons and white terns might be seen along the shores, however for the most part you will truly have the coast to yourselves.

3. Active outdoor lifestyle

The Maldives is a favourite destination for fishing and Scuba diving, and the local guides and crew of NAWAIMAA will ensure that you make the most of your time on an action-packed itinerary. Fish for your lunch at the Mulaku Atoll, learn to surf or go for a snorkel or Scuba dive amongst the thriving corals.

Luxury yacht NAWAIMAA has plenty of outdoor space and a great collection of water toys to keep everyone active. She comes with a water slide and inflatable and towable toys that will give confidence to all ages while creating cherished memories with family and friends.

4. Luxury shopping and culture

Your luxury yacht charter doesn’t have to be entirely spent at sea and culture lovers and shoppers will find plenty of indulgences in Malé: Spend a couple of hours perusing the boutiques and markets, visit the old and new museums and art gallery around Sultan Park, then end the afternoon with a couple of spa massage treatments to leave you feeling refreshed before an evening socialising in the bars and cafes or back on board your luxury yacht.

5. Complete privacy

With 26 atolls to cover amongst 298 km2 (that’s 115 square miles), there will be plenty of time to sit back, relax and let your Captain take you to the best locations in the charter grounds. NAWAIMAA has a flybridge Jacuzzi, plenty of sunbeds and two choice places to dine and lounge in the shade throughout the afternoon, and the air-conditioned lounge will surely beckon after a full day of swimming and playing on the white sand beaches.

The accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests across four beautiful en-suite cabins, which include a full-beam Master suite, a VIP stateroom and two twin cabins that each have a Pullman berth.

This powerful motor yacht has a faster than average cruising speed of 20 knots and a top speed of 30 knots, so guests will spend less time in transit and more time packing in the sights, sounds and sensations of these Indian Ocean idylls.

Make your plans for the holiday of a lifetime aboard a luxury yacht with a proven reputation with charter guests.

    I did a Maldives resort about five years ago, total luxury in paradise but a bit frustrating. I knew that there was so much more out there. Having the freedom of a private yacht would be so liberating.

      Hi Sue,
      Yes, definitely. Discovering places on a yacht charter is much more rewarding. There are great yachts and itineraries withing various budgets and yachts, from fantastic catamarans to huge superyachts. On top of it, you have a professional crew to look after you and your family the entire time! Perhaps something to consider for your next holiday :)

    There’s something very special about watching the world go by from your hammock. Nothing says relaxed tropical as much as hammock. Our hotel in Mauritius strung up hammocks between the palm trees on the shoreline and we spent hours there cooled by the breeze. Hanging out in a hammock on the deck as you cruise between Maldives islands must be even more of a special experience.

    Probably a wild dream. A bunch of my mates are retiring this year and next. It really would be living the dream if we could take over a boat like this. Our “Pirates of the Indian Ocean” fantasy. A dream but a nightmare to get everyone together.

    • Trina Howes says:

      Hi Stephen, our brokers are here to help to make your Pirates of the Indian Ocean retirement trip a reality! We’d be happy to put together a proposal for you, if interested. Definitely, a fantastic way to celebrate life.

    Ok I’m not the greatest of readers and I may have missed it but why is the yacht called the NAWAIMAA? Any one know?
