Description and details
Diving on the Adora in the Maldives
With a length of about 38 meters or 123 feet, Adora showcases features and amenities that guests consider as true reflections of what a diving liveaboard should be.
The yacht is stylishly designed with a modern indoor saloon and bar area. It features an entertainment system where guests can watch movies or listen to their favorite music.
For guests who love staying in the sun, the sun deck is a perfect place to be. There are cushioned sunbeds where they can tan or perhaps enjoy the panoramic views from the reclined chairs, or just breathing the fresh sea air.
Apart from the communal areas, the yacht also has a library for some good reads and charging stations to prepare the gear for some underwater photography. Internet is also available.
With its spacious 11 cabins, the yacht can accommodate a maximum of 21 guests. The choices of cabins include Standard Rooms, Ocean View Suites, and Superior Rooms.
Aside from being comfortably large, each cabin is designed with individual temperature control systems, which can be adjusted according to the guest’s preferences. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with hot shower, towels, toiletries, and hairdryer.
There are TV sets in every room with a large library of films and documentaries to choose from.
Food and Beverage
Western and local foods headline the menu of the chef. With ingredients inspired from the best sources, prepared and cooked meticulously by the onboard chef, and served wholeheartedly by the crew – dining is always a nice experience.
With options made available for vegans and vegetarians, no one is certainly left out without trying the delicious food. The dishes are perfectly matched with drinks and desserts and dining can be enjoyed al fresco.
Snacks are well-prepared and served throughout the day with matching drinks – either hot or cold ones. Served in between the full meals or as needed, the snacks provide guests with the necessary energy to refuel their bodies for the next onboard or underwater adventures.
And if you’re looking for beers, cocktails, or wines – the bar area is where these are served.
Dietary restrictions will be accommodated through advanced notices upon booking. Although, it is requested that such restrictions be limited to inclinations to food allergies and religious beliefs.
Offering cruises all year round, Adora takes the guests to the best diving spots across the Maldives. The usual routes include North & South Ari, South Malé, Vaavu and the “wild south. Cruises typically last for 7 nights. Including the dhoni rides and land excursions, the liveaboard lives on to be one of the best diving liveaboards to grace the Maldivian waters.
