Sitting on the idyllic Southernmost tip of Raa Atoll, on the edge of a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and within its own natural lagoon, InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort leads the way for manta ray research and has its own sustainable waste initiatives and recycling programmes. With pop up wellness practitioners, resident chefs and most recently, educational manta ray retreats, the resort plays host to a whole range of individuals, as well as a rich array of marine life. As the first and only all-Club InterContinental resort, guests are truly spoiled with indulgent complimentary benefits alongside luxurious five-star Maldivian facilities such as overwater villas, adults-only enclaves and a tranquil spa. With 81 beach, lagoon and over-water villas and residences, as well as six restaurants and bars, the resort enjoys the peace of a boutique hotel, but has the facilities of a world-class resort.
