Have you ever wondered why the waters surrounding the Maldives shimmer in an enchanting spectrum of blues? At Nova Maldives, nestled in the heart of the South Ari Atoll, we invite you to immerse yourself in these mesmerising hues and discover the secrets of our laidback island’s vibrant aquatic canvas.
The Science Behind the Blue
At Nova, our guests often marvel at the extraordinary clarity and colour of the ocean. This brilliance is due to the Maldives’ unique underwater topography and the purity of its waters. The white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters, rich in dissolved minerals, act as a mirror, reflecting the sky’s azure tones. Additionally, the abundant coral reefs, thriving just beneath the surface, play a pivotal role in scattering sunlight, enhancing the water’s vivid blue appearance.
From Sky to Sea
The experience at Nova transcends just observing the water’s colour. Here, you can indulge in a spectrum of blue, from the gentle turquoise of the shallows to the deep cerulean of the open sea. Our guests often find themselves lost in contemplation, watching the shifting shades as the sun makes its journey across the sky, painting the ocean in a dynamic, ever-changing palette.
Nova’s Overwater Sanctuaries
Our water villas at Nova offer a front-row seat to this aquatic wonder. Wake up to the sight of gentle waves dancing in the morning light and fall asleep to the serene sounds of the ocean. The glass-bottom floors in select villas offer an uninterrupted view of the vibrant underwater life, adding to the enchantment.
Bask in Nature’s Masterpiece
At Nova, we encourage you to not just witness but actively engage with these stunning waters. Dive into the warm, inviting sea and snorkel among the vibrant coral reefs. The clear waters offer unparalleled visibility, allowing you to observe a myriad of marine life in their natural, brilliantly coloured habitat.
