The Dhoni Stella I and II are sister ships and are almost identical except for cabin configuration. They are available for full private charter by small groups who wish to dive the best of the Maldives in liveaboard luxury and style. The boats normally accommodate 4 to 6 people although extra beds can be added for larger groups.
Both boats offer boutique-style Maldives liveaboard diving safaris designed in accordance with the legendary 'Kalhuofumi' dhoni and built with mainly local materials, meaning you know you will be on board an authentic and traditional boat.
All Stella cabins are air-conditioned and have a fan plus full en-suite bathroom facilities. Cabins also feature TV, DVD player, music and a minibar so you can enjoy all the entertainment facilities from the comfort of your cabin. There is also plenty of sun lounging space on the sun deck or main deck and an open air dining/relaxation area on the main deck.
For small dive groups wanting exclusivity and luxury but still with more than a touch of that simple Maldivian style, then look no further than chartering one of the Dhoni Stella liveaboards.
