Marine Discovery

A world class destination for underwater adventure and exploration


Surrounded by a stunning house reef, Alila Kothaifaru Maldives offers guests serenity and adventure in the Raa Atoll, a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé. The mostly uninhabited chain of islands plays host to some of nature’s most spectacular wonders, and the Alila perfectly positions you to experience the best. Enjoy spectacular sunrise or sunset views from one of the 80 beachfront and overwater villas. Spend your days in the company of our certified marine experts, as you explore the richness of the underwater world—from diving through incredible reefs teeming with schools of pelagic fish, to snorkeling with hawksbill turtles and manta rays. Come evening, cast out on a sunset cruise, and enjoy cocktails at dusk in the company of spinner and bottlenose dolphins. Or head to nearby Vaadhoo island, where you can witness the extraordinary Sea of Stars phenomenon, when bioluminescent phytoplankton in the island’s reef causes the sea to glimmer like the starry night sky.
