The rest of our time in Maldives was spent at a boutique hotel called Casa Mia.

Do read Barbara's tripadvisor review.

The diving was good and three dives in particular were exceptional. The one was Dinoluga Manta cleaning station where they spent their entire one hour dive at 12 m depth with Mantas circling the cleaning station that was packed with schools of fish. What MAGIC!

The other two exceptional dives, were sunset/night dives at Maaya Thila . This was a one hour boat trip away but was well worth the ride to see the Sharks, Jacks, Rays and Eels frantically searching for their “dinner.”
