What to expect

Filitheyo is one of the finest resorts in the Maldives for diving and the team of multilingual Werner Lau staff are waiting to welcome you.

The house reef is in excellent health and there are seven marked access points. Here on the house reef, you can discover all kinds of exciting marine life including reef fish, rays, turtles, sharks, eels and lobsters. In the surrounding area, Faafu Atoll, you can explore by dive boat excursion more than 40 pristine reefs, thilas, channels, wrecks and caves bursting with vibrant marine life and healthy corals. As it’s the only resort in the atoll you won’t run into other groups of divers at the dive sites either.

There is a range of SSI courses for uncertified divers or anyone wanting to further their training, such as the drift specialty course. Another popular highlight is the UV night dive (fluoro dive) on the house reef – an incredible way of seeing the remarkable underwater world

We think…

For those of all ages looking for an easy and relaxing diving and snorkeling holiday, in a luxurious laid back resort, Filitheyo will tick all your boxes.
