Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.
It is said that a surfing holiday in the Maldives is the ultimate surfing holiday in the world.
Chaaya Island Dhonveli is a small and beautiful tropical surf island in the Maldives. Newly redeveloped, the resort is stylish and comfortable, with a relaxed atmosphere. Offering exclusive access to the classic Pasta Point surf break.
The mood at Dhonveli is intimate, exclusive, the accommodations delightful, two-story, air-conditioned bungalows. Although the number of surfing guests is limited to a maximum of 30, the resort facilities are available to all guests and their families, and include a sumptuous restaurants, full-service bar, swimming pool, swimming beach, tennis court and PADI dive center and full spa facilities.
But for surfers, it's the view that's out of this world. Peeling down the south corner of the islet is the perfect left of Pasta Point (named for the original Italian owners of the resort), the most reliable, mechanical wave in the Maldives: a beautiful high-performance wall-to-inside barrel that's good from two to eight feet. Accessible perfection, and we're talking 50 yards from your shady balcony to the lineup.
