Maldive cruises with Scubaspa Ying - diving and spa treatments
View Video Gallery Bookmark and Share

The boat is as luxurious as you might expect from a floating spa. At 50 m in length, It is huge and beautifully furnished and far from a 'rough and ready' Maldives liveaboard. The boat can accommodate up to 44 guests with a limit of 22 guests ensuring you will dive in small groups during your cruise and have plenty of attention from your guide. Free enriched air nitrox is another bonus not to be overlooked. There are 29 staff members ensuring your every need is catered to. This includes 6 full time spa therapists offering a variety of massages, aqua therapies, Ayurveda and beauty treatments.

There are many relaxation spots on the boat: the open air saloon with adjoining bar, air conditioned restaurant, 2 sun decks and spa areas and quiet shaded spots on various decks. There are spa rooms, a Jacuzzi on the sundeck and a Thai pavilion sundeck for spa therapies or romantic private dining. There is a range of cabins on the middle and lower deck all of which are double or twin and all feature a bed which is King size or larger. The upper deck is home to the sumptuous suites with large windows and hotel-standard finishes.

Saturday to Saturday trips are all in the central atolls and alternate between southern (South Male and Vaavu atolls) and northern (North Male, Rasdhoo, Ari atolls) routes. This means 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.
