Milaidhoo Maldives offering star-gazing retreats

Tuesday, 01 Nov, 2022 0

In partnership with astronomy expert Valerie Stimac, guests can soon experience Milaidhoo Maldives’ brand new retreat series ‘Milky Way from the Maldives’.

Valerie has teamed up with the resort to tap into the trend of ‘Astrotourism,’.

Together, they are launching a series of retreats to allow guests to discover the dark skies of the Maldives.

The retreats will take place 15 – 21 May 2023 and include a Healing Space Massage, dinner under the stars and stargazing on a secluded sandbank,

Retreats also include Wayfinding / sailing by stars on a traditional Maldivian Dhoni, astrophotography sessions, night-sky mythology sessions as well as the opportunity to name a star.

Guests can even opt to spend the night as castaways under the stars on their own private sandbank.

The sandbank comes with a canopied four- poster bed draped in muslin and a private yacht anchored nearby, with a dressing room and bathroom.

Dates for the retreats will be selected in accordance with the weather, moon phases and other astronomical events.

Valerie said: “I am delighted to partner with the hotel and I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the night sky with guests. These retreats offer a rare opportunity to truly disconnect – a trend which has quickly accelerated since the global pandemic.”

“The Maldives is 90% water meaning there is virtually no light pollution – making it the perfect destination.”

Maldivian-owned Milaidhoo Maldives opened in December 2016 and is set over 13 acres at the Baa Atoll’s UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
