Make Your Voavah Surfing Easy
Expand your horizons at the world’s first exclusive-use UNESCO hideaway, Voavah – a seven-bedroom private island Maldives resort, a luxury yacht named Voavah Summer and a marine territory that’s entirely your own. Retreat from the paparazzi. Explore perfect empty waves. Connect with your loved ones. Celebrate your accomplishments. Come and dream with your eyes open.
Under the right conditions, a secret world-class reef break can fire off un-ridden just 45 minutes from the resort. Closer to the island fun and playful waves are readily available. But visit to surf a perfect right-hander, that some claim as the best wave in the country. The wave can barrel perfectly down a shallow reef, before backing off into more of a playful cutback section, with a secondary speedy section further down he inside. Other waves exist, but this is our favourite!
If you’re able to travel on a whim, line up your stay with a good swell. Speak with one of our luxury travel designers and we will set up an alert for you, and contact you when we see an epic swell on the horizon. Then all there is left to do is relax and have one of our private surf guides show you the hidden gems on offer here.
