Scubaspa Yang, along with its sister ship Scubaspa Ying, provides an experience in the Maldives like no other. You can combine all the convenience and diving benefits of a liveaboard with a range of soothing spa treatments normally reserved for deluxe resorts. What better combination for couples than combining scuba diving with luxurious spa treatments? Why get stuck on a resort when there is something for both of you on this luxury tour?

The glorious sight of the 50 m long Scubaspa Yang gliding over the calm Maldivian waters draws gasps of admiration from onlookers. This is a beautiful liveaboard with touches of luxury and style everywhere you turn. Although there is capacity for up to 44 guests there is a maximum of 22 divers on board at any time which means smaller dive groups and a low diver-to-guide ratio. Free enriched air nitrox is another bonus not to be overlooked. There is also a professional photography service to capture these magic moments.

The middle and lower deck house a range of double or twin cabins all of which have a least a King size bed. On the upper deck are the gorgeous suites with large picture windows so you can drink in the ever-changing atoll views. Most guests choose to spend their relaxation time in the open-air saloon and bar area, or on one of the 2 sundecks which include a hot tub and a Thai pavilion for private romantic meals for 2 in the evening and spa therapies during the day. There are also dedicated spa facilities on the middle deck where you can have all those diving aches and pains soothed away. Among the 29 staff are 6 trained therapists providing a range of massages, Ayurveda and beauty treatments and aqua therapies.

Saturday to Saturday liveaboard tours are all in the central atolls of the Maldives and alternate week-by-week between northern (North Male, Rasdhoo, Ari atolls) and southern (South Male and Vaavu atolls) routes. So you can stay 2 weeks and each day is something new! You can choose between a diving cruise package, a spa package and a scuba-spa combi package, all for the same price.

    Customer reviews:

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "Liveaboard. Incredible luxury vessel. Good equipment and nice diving staff. They should insist more on the environmental message to divers in general and in particular educate fresh/new divers (even if they hold a certificate) to hone their skills, mainly photographers who don't care too much about what they touch with their fins." - , USA, 22 July 2015 ...
