Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa diving
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa has been named the leading dive resort in the Maldives at the prestigious Matato Maldives Travel Awards. The combination of the Hadahaa 360 degree pristine house reef, world class dive sites and a highly knowledgeable dive team is the recipe for this recognition. The ceremony took place in the capital Malé on 21st December 2013.

The Maldives is known as one of the world’s leading dive destinations and the hotel is delighted to be awarded the best dive resort in the country. This award is a huge achievement and a truly great honour for the dive and activity team, Blue Journeys at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa.  

The 5 Star PADI Blue Journeys team offer the very best dive and activity experiences catering for many nationalities including Chinese and Russian. The team is the foundation of what is an unparalleled diving experience for any level of diver from Bubble Maker to Dive Master. The Blue Journeys team also includes Ciara McCarten, the resident Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa Marine Biologist responsible for coordinating all EarthCheck practices, conservation initiatives, monitoring of the house reef and guest workshops on topics ranging from identifying marine life to estimating fish stock and preservation and nurturing of the environment to both guests and staff alike.
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is situated on a private island, 55km north of the Equator in one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, North Huvadhoo. The island is home to a pristine 360 degree house reef rivalling any spot in the Maldives. With no need for boats and being able to simply jump off the jetty, the house reef is a jewel in the Blue Journey crown. Why?
• Nationwide research has found the house reef to have the greatest coral cover in the Maldives, exceeding 100% cover
• Hot spot for biodiversity and home to an exceptional number of species
• Endangered species frequently sighted. Between 10-20% of the marine species are classified as critically endangered, endangered or vulnerable by the IUCN

Huvadhoo Atoll also known as Gaafu Atoll, home of Park Hyatt Maldives, spans 82km from north to south and is 65km at its widest point in the center. The entire Atoll is shaped with a circular ring of reefs containing a deep central lagoon, with depths of up to 85 meters. Peppered around Huvadhoo Atoll are many smaller patch reefs, small coral islets and coral knolls.  

The outer reef of this Atoll forms a choppy barrier to the open Indian Ocean; it consists of around 40 smaller reef segments divided by deep and sometimes narrow channels conjoining the inner lagoon with the ocean outside. Around these entrances and channels divers will find many schools of fish, large mantas, sharks and other fish life dwelling in the deep Maldivian waters.

The natural composition of this Maldives atoll means there are numerous pristine dive sites and scuba diving regions filled with exciting features like caves, steep drop offs and beautiful underwater landscapes, not to mention the breathtaking coral formations and abundance of Maldives fish life.

Nightly starting rates at Park Hyatt Maldives starts at USD 830+/£505* per villa, inclusive of Breakfast.
