Sandies Bathala 4 star


Brand new all-inclusive resort

Opening in February 2019, Sandies Bathala will bring a great-value all-inclusive option to the Ari Atoll. The island is located along the north-eastern rim of the atoll, just a 15-minute scenic seaplane ride from Malé airport, and it has long been a popular spot with divers from all around the globe.

The house reef surrounding the island is stunning, with colourful fish, reef sharks and turtles regularly spotted. Head beyond the reef with the experienced PADI dive crew, or venture out on a snorkelling trip where you can stop on a desert island for lunch. Bathala will also offer night snorkelling for a totally different perspective of the ocean and marine life.
