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.

Awesome holiday to Hudhuranfushi. Giulia was very helpful and quick to respond and overall we were very impressed with Awave Travel.
Lohi's is a private, on site, awesome left hander that just kept giving. Also had options of 2 daily surf boat trips that went to other local breaks such as Sultans, Ninja's, Cokes, Jails. The surf team are amazing and we scored great waves the whole time we were there.
Stayed in a Sunset family beach villa which was perfect for a family of 4, then upgraded for the last 3 nights to Ocean Villas, both great for different reasons!
Island staff are so helpful and welcoming, and there's a good variety of food options available. Lots of other things to do such as paddleboarding, jet ski-ing, spa treatments, yoga and amazing snorkelling - with sharks, turtles and rays! We also hired bikes to get around and do morning surf checks!
An amazing trip, thank you Awave and Hudhuranfushi!

We charted Seafarer for a 10 day trip in the Maldives. We booked with AWAVE about 12 months before. James was super helpful, really responsive and just easy to deal with. We even made a very last minute change to go to the central atolls which he arranged pretty much straight away. The trip itself was unreal, great surf, amazing wildlife and scenery. If you’re thinking about a surf charter, do it and book through these guys!

Awave Travel is the best surf travel agency I have ever booked! They are very professional and responsive to my inquiries and are able to match me with a surf trip appropriate to my interests and skill level. They have an outstanding relationship and reputation with the resorts that they work with, which makes a difference in the consumer experience. Above all, the Awave staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the areas they recommend, as they have actually surfed the spots and stayed at the resorts. For anyone who wants a hassle-free, no worries, relaxing and fun surf adventure, Awave Travel is the way to go!

8 of us stayed at Hudhuranfushi for my 50th birthday celebration. The resort and services were amazing. James and the team at AWAVE stayed in contact from the beginning to end to ensure we had everything we needed. Great experience. Definitely looking forward to booking our next trip with AWAVE in the near future.

We spent amazing days in Morocco in Amouage. Was an amazing stay and the full surf package offered by AWAVE was great.
All the people were very nice and coaches were amazing. Booking was very smooth, answered all my questions and they took care of everything.
I took the coaching package and had a great time and learning. The teacher was great, very patient and explained everything very nice and calm. Felt safe all the time and had a lot of fun as well.
My boyfriend had the guiding package and he also had a great time. He was always taken to the spots that fitted his level and enjoyed the full when conditions were nice.

We stayed at Ayada in Maldives and I can't be more complimentary of AWAVE!

Easy booking on short notice before the trip, can't thank James enough!

Stewart Cropp 05/19/23

Our remarkable trip was 12 months in the was awkward to organize because there was so many people coming and going over our two week chartered cruise.
I can’t speak highly enough of AWAVE and more to the point ,the wonderful Giulia Manfrini. She is so caring and sweet and far above and beyond any travel consultant that I have ever worked with
Thankyou Giulia for all your prompt answers to my gazillion questions
You are “Simply the best”.
Now onto the Carpe Diem
The trip of a lifetime was had by all 20 of us
The Captain and crew worked tirelessly to pander to our every whim
They would not allow us to lift a finger
Our Barmen Shawn and Cook ( still can’t pronounce his name ) were superb, the food was first class and varied and the alcohol flowed like a river
Our Surf guide “Seppe” found waves for us every day except for two while we travelled deep into the central Attols
We were greatful for the rest
We snorkeled with the sharks and visited uninhabited Islands spent an afternoon being spoiled at a high class resort .
All in all an Awsome trip

James helped us organize our trip in April for my partner and I in the Mentawai.
First, lets discuss the service : James was super clear and reactive. We received a list of resorts with different price ranges and he provided all the elements for us to decide based on our needs and budget. We felt very supported for the organization and we even received so advices few days before leaving for packing.
I was a bit afraid as i'm not a good surfer so i reach out many times to understand how I could still try and learn and James always replied very quick and with all the info i need.
Then when we arrive : it was super well organized, everything went smooth and we fell in love with the place and people. We can tell they really worked on their resort selection and travel organization and we trust our next adventure will be as qualitative.
Already recommended their service ;).
