THE DIVER’S PARADISE
How do we begin to describe the enchantment of Ellaidhoo to you? Can we tell you about the exhilarating seaplane landing in the middle of the ocean? Maybe we should start with telling you that we house the best diving reef in the world, or that a school of a 100 giant jack fish come by the hotel decks each evening to be fed by the hotel staff? Or then again, maybe the beginning of our story should be to tell you why this island is called Ellaidhoo in the first place; you see, an indescribable phenomenon brings a heavenly light down to the island from the sky at the most unexpected moments. Some say it’s St. Elmo’s Fire, but here on Ellaidhoo Maldives by Cinnamon, we believe in magic.
An indescribable bond connects the marine life to the people on the island, a beautiful sense of symbiosis and possibly a guideline for how we should respect and live with all wild life and marine life on this planet. While the spectacular marine life from reef to shark to manta is our base for tourism, it isn’t merely an income thing for us – all beings around our island are our friends.
