Exploring the Private Waves of the Maldives

Escape the crowds and discover the private waves of the Maldives. A paradise for surfers seeking uncrowded quality breaks and stunning beauty.

Renowned for its unspoiled beaches, epic waves, and luxury resorts. The Maldives stands as a world-renowned tropical paradise nestled in the heart of the Indian Ocean. What really sets the Maldives apart from other tropical destinations are its private waves. No where else in the worlds are there as many options for private surfing!

A Surfer’s Paradise with Private Waves

The Maldives conceals a hidden gem beneath its serene surface: a true paradise for surfers. With its archipelago of 26 atolls, consisting of countless islands and reefs, the Maldives Surf Resorts offer unparalleled surf service for a haven of perfect waves suitable for all levels, from beginners to experienced surfers alike. What distinguishes the Maldives from other popular surf destinations is the opportunity to relish these waves in an intimate and exclusive setting, far away from the hustle and bustle of crowded surf spots.

Uncrowded Waves

One of the most remarkable aspects of the private waves in the Maldives is the blissful lack of crowds. In an era where popular surf spots are increasingly crowded, surfers are seeking uncrowded waves to escape the masses. Imagine the perfect holiday scenario: embarking on a journey with your beloved one, your family, or even venturing solo, and discovering a private wave right at the doorstep of your resort. It’s an unparalleled experience that allows you to savour the pure joy of surfing without the hassle of battling for waves or feeling overwhelmed by crowds.

Unlike other popular surf destinations around the world, where hordes of surfers vie for the same set of waves, the private waves offer a serene and uncrowded experience. With limited access reserved exclusively for guests of select resorts, you can enjoy surfing without the hassle of jostling for position or feeling rushed. The beauty of a private wave is more waves, better wave selection, and getting more time surfing on your trip!

Intimacy & Exclusivity

As the name suggests, private waves are for private use by the guests staying on the island on which they break. The Maldives is known for its luxurious resorts, some have taken the concept of exclusivity a step further by offering private surf breaks accessible only to their guests. The resorts include Niyama Private Island (Vodi), Hudhuranfushi (Lohis), Cinnamon Dhonveli (Pasta Point ), and Holiday Inn Kandooma (Kandooma Right ). These resorts, located on their private islands, provide unparalleled privacy, access to waves, and the chance to experience surfing quiet waves in stunning surroundings.

Luxury & Private Waves

Of all the Maldives Surf Resorts, Niyama Private Islands, located in the pristine and quiet Central Atolls of the Maldives, is the only resort that combines an ultimate luxury experience with a private wave, Vodi. Exclusively available to guests, this onsite left-hander provides an exceptional and uncrowded surfing opportunity.

Adaaran Select Hudhuranfushi, an All-Inclusive resort located in the North Male Atoll boasts very limited private access to 45 surfers maximum per day to one of the highest quality waves in the Maldives, Lohis, aka Lohifushi.! This ultra-consistent left-hander reef break is located on the reef fringing the resort and can deliver long walls, perfect to practice your turns and manoeuvres, or challenging endless barrels for the ones who are seeking a different feeling. Breaking in almost all swells, Lohi’s offers something for everyone.

Known as the original private wave in the Maldives, Pasta Point, the onsite wave of Cinnamon Dhonveli, located in the North Male Atoll, is by far one of the most sought-after waves in the country, where only 33 lucky surfers a day can experience this gem. This classy left-hander reels along the reef at the perfect speed to do turns as well as tube sections that extend as the swell gets bigger!

A Paradise for Surfers and their Loved Ones

Imagine waking up to the gentle lapping of waves against the shore, enjoying a leisurely breakfast, and then walking from your room to reach your exclusive surf break. While you immerse yourself in the thrill of surfing the private waves of the Maldives, your loved ones can indulge in a world of luxury and relaxation at the resort.

With a range of activities and amenities tailored to suit every interest, they can bask in the beauty of pristine beaches, take a refreshing dip in gentle lagoons, or enjoy rejuvenating spa treatments. From thrilling water sports to tranquil poolside lounging, there are endless opportunities for your family members or friends to create cherished memories and make the most of the resort’s exceptional offerings. While you chase the waves, they can revel in their own paradise, ensuring that everyone experiences a fulfilling and unforgettable vacation.

So, if you wish to escape the crowd and hassle of your local spot and relax your mind and soul while surfing, the Maldives’ private waves offer an exclusive and unparalleled surfing experience, combining the thrill of riding world-class waves with the serenity and beauty of this tropical paradise.

Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, world-class surf breaks, and luxurious accommodations, wave riders can escape to a secluded haven where the only soundtrack is the crashing of waves against the coral reefs. Whether you’re a seasoned surfer searching for the perfect barrel or a beginner looking to catch your first wave, the private waves of the Maldives await, promising an unforgettable adventure in one of the world’s most idyllic settings.

Very professional team. Giulia is always on and have an accurate answer to all my questions. The boat trip was incredibly well organised. Nothing was missing.

Emily Bullen 04/03/2024

Professional and Top Notch! From the moment we started planning our trip AWAVE was responsive and professional. We had a lot of back and forth picking the perfect location and resort and James and Giulia were patient and helpful. The resort we stayed at, AYADA in the Maldives, was beautiful and relaxing- great for families and couples! It was perfect for us- we have 1 surfer in the family, he was able to enjoy the waves and we also were able to enjoy the reef and snorkel as a family. Our kids loved the kids club and the private pool on the beach villas was amazing. The alcohol is expensive if you don’t do full board but that is to be expected. Wonderful vacation and amazing travel agency! Definitely recommend!!

I've used Awave twice ... so far. This is the second time I've used Awave for a trip to the maldives. Stayed in 2 different resorts this time. They've always been incredibly prompt at replying and handled everything for us, making sure the 2 Resorts were in touch to get us transfered half way through our trip. At one of the resorts I even bumped into Giulia and Delia who were out there surfing at the time. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll use awave again if I'm booking a surf trip

Indonesia Surf Trip/ Java/Bali/Sumba - James Colston was my representative from AWAVE - I’m an older solo surfer and James was attentive, respectful, extremely responsive from the initial planning stages all the way through the booking. And he was so patient with all my crazy questions along the way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with James’s level of service. Thank you James

Alex Daish 12/28/23

Giulia was an amazing person to book with. I was overwhelmed with choices initially, but AWAVE knew their stuff and helped me with my options and even suggested delaying my trip so I could go to a certain hotel which ended up being the best decision I made all year.

Mickey 01/24/24

Giulia and James were always on line to answer any question or to give an advice. The Ayada resort is perfect both for families or for couples. We did not have waves as the season goes from April to September, but there are plenty options to have fun and good times. Highly recommended both Awave and Ayada.

James 01/30/24

The AWAVE team are knowledgable and helpful. Giulia is a very helpful and patient person to deal with, and do not worry, you can trust her. I had to delay my trip to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances and Giulia was very understanding. I have just returned from having a fantastic week at Amouage in Taghazout. Thanks AWAVE!
