Thulhagiri Resort

Overview

Thulhagiri is a small, low-key resort offering good value. Dive sites on either side of the atoll ensure good diving year round from a very well managed dive base. With easy access to Male via a 25 minute speedboat ride, this island also makes an excellent choice for twin centre holidays combining another island or a liveaboard.

Accommodation

The resort has 69 detached and semi-detached Superior bungalows built around the fringe of the island in the tree line, overlooking the beach and sea. Some are water bungalows.

All the bungalows are attractively designed with contemporary bamboo furniture and include air-conditioning, a seating area, mini fridge and satellite TV. The enclosed bathrooms are large and include a hot water shower.

Water villas have a canopied four poster double bed and a private sun deck with access in to the sea. The bathroom has a bath and separate stall shower. Water villas have in-room safes, beach bungalows use safes on reception.


Other Facilities

Thulhagiri has a reputation for the quality of its food, which offers a fine buffet from the main restaurant and simple a la carte orders from the bar. There is an attractive bar located next to the restaurant and pool. Free activities on the island include table tennis, volleyball and badminton. Various watersports are also available at an extra cost that is paid locally. These include hobbie cat sailing, windsurfing and canoeing.

Dive info

Thulagiri is a small island located in the middle of North Male atoll, just 25 minutes by speedboat from Male and the airport. Palm trees shade the interior and there is a fine beach leading to a large sheltered lagoon. The island blends in to its surroundings beautifully and offers a high standard of food and accommodation. The southern end of North Male atoll offers a concentration of excellent dive sites, which are all accessible from the island.

House Reef

Access on to the house reef is restricted to one entry point. However, to extend the local diving options, the dive base Sub Aqua now offer individual dive-trips on a flexible time schedule (based on a minimum number of 2 divers). A small boat will take divers out to a range of five first class dive sites including Thulhagiri Bodu Thila and Thulhagiri Kuda Thila. There is also a shuttle-service to the outer house reef, making for a great ‘one way’ dive back to the house reef entrance.

Boat Diving

Thulhagiri’s location allows for its dive boats to access some of the best dive sites on both the southwestern and southeastern sides of North Male atoll making it an excellent diving option year round. There are well over 30 dive sites that are regularly visited by the islands’ dive boats.

Lions head, well known for it varied shark sightings, is a beautifully formed reef with an impressive overhang located on the southern edge of the atoll. Manta point on the Eastern atoll edge draws both Mantas and Whale sharks to its walls from May to December. The range of dive sites available from the island means there are great options for all divers, from novice right through to advanced.

Sub Aqua Dive Centre

The excellently run Sub Aqua dive base is a PADI 5* resort. Unlimited diving is available to experienced divers on the house reef. For those wanting to dive further afield, dive boats go out twice a day and cater to all experience levels.

Occasionally the dive boats operate full day trips to access dive sites beyond the range of a single tank dive. Thulagiri’s location at the Southern end of the North Male atoll makes it well placed to access fabulous dive sites year round. Over 30 dive sites are accessible within an hour’s boat journey from resort.

Dive Packs

Divers are required to complete a compulsory check dive on arrival. The dive centre can insist that a diver is guided (local charge applicable — see table below) either on the house reef or on the boat, if they determine that a diver is not competent enough to dive in a buddy pair.

For unguided dive packs, divers must have a PADI Open Water or equivalent qualification and logged 30 dives in the 18 months prior to arrival. If divers do not meet this requirement, they will be required to pay for a guide in resort (local charge applicable — see table below).

All dive packs are based on air or Nitrox. Nitrox is available FREE of charge up to 32% for nitrox certified divers.

Use of a dive computer is compulsory. Each diver must have their own computer.
