The largest of its kind in the Maldives, the on-board spa has six treatment rooms, including one for couples’ therapies, a shaded spa lounge and a secluded deck for open-air massages, meditation and yoga led by the yoga master.
Fine dining spaces provide panoramic sunrise and sunset views over the Indian Ocean, while internationally qualified chefs prepare three buffet-style meals daily, as well as an a la carte menu complete with live cooking stations, and served in the spacious al fresco restaurant. All flavours are expertly combined with European and Mediterranean favourites, complemented by a carefully curated global selection of wines and champagnes. Guests can select convenient packages which include daily morning yoga, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and a sumptuous secluded beach BBQ.

Diving from Scubaspa Ying
The entire Scubaspa experience is all about luxury, and diving is no exception. High quality full rental equipment and nitrox are available, and a team of expert multilingual dive instructors are on hand to teach PADI dive courses. To ensure the main vessel remains undisturbed, all dive-related activity takes place on the yacht’s accompanying dive boat that serves as a floating dive centre. The 20 metre-long dive boat was built for comfort, with seating areas, multiple entry points, a stern platform and on-board toilet facilities. Divers are led by seasoned guides to the best dive sites across the Maldives, including healthy reefs with abundant tropical fish and macro critters, and energetic channels where sharks and manta rays congregate in the currents. Night and deep dives are also on offer to divers with an advanced open water certification.
