There is a PADI Dive centee that arranges tuition and visits to world-class dive sites nearby, including Giraavaru Cave, which is 10 minutes from the resort, and Lion’s Head, Kuda Haa, Kiki Reef, and Shar Point, all within 20 minutes.
Restaurants include Al Khaimah, which serves Arabic and Middle Eastern-style grilled dishes; La Brezza, which offers Italian cuisine with the emphasis on seafood; and Suan Bua, which serves authentic Thai cuisine.
