As dusk settles over Nova Maldives, good soul days turn into good soul nights. Amidst the serenity of our laidback natural island, Nova offers an experience like no other – the chance to lose yourself in the breathtaking spectacle of the night sky.

Discover the wonder of stargazing in the Maldives as we explore the best time for clear skies, the benefits this experience can bring, and the celestial marvels waiting to be unveiled.

Crystal Clear Skies Above

Nova’s location in the Maldives boasts clear, unpolluted skies, making it an ideal spot for stargazing year-round. The absence of light pollution ensures that the stars shine brightly and paint the night canvas with their twinkle. However, the best times to stargaze are during the dry season, from November to April, when the skies are at their clearest.

Connecting with the Cosmos

Stargazing isn’t just about witnessing the magic of the night sky; it also has a range of benefits for your mind and soul. Underneath a canopy of stars, you’ll find a profound sense of peace and connection to something greater than yourself. Coupled with the gentle sound of waves caressing the shore, this can prove to be a deeply meaningful experience, helping you to relax and let go of any worries.

Guided Stargazing

To enhance your stargazing experience, Nova regularly hosts guided stargazing sessions led by expert astronomers. They will be your celestial guides, unveiling the secrets of the night sky and helping you navigate through the constellations. Whether you’re a seasoned stargazer or a first-timer, our experts will tailor the experience to suit your interests and knowledge.
