Embudu Village

Hotel Overview

One of the first resorts in the Maldives, Embudu still remains simple, and natural.

Offering great value for money, Embudu is a small island in a great location close to Male (South Male Atoll) and with a spectacular house reef to explore.

The atmosphere is laid back and the efficient service always comes with a smile. A beautiful lagoon surrounds Embudu where the reef starts just steps from the beach in some places and over 100 metres offshore in others.

Diving Information

Eat, sleep, dive, repeat :)

As with most of the Maldivian islands the diving is organised as either a non- limit 6 consecutive day house reef package, or a 10 house reef dive package, boat dives are booked and paid for locally for a supplement of approx $17 for 1 trip or $150 for 10.

24 hours a day you can choose from 6 different diving profiles on the house reef that gently extends to 30m. Rays, sharks, morays, napoleons, lobster, turtles and sometimes-even mantas can be seen on the house reef alone.

More than 35 of the most beautiful dive sites of the North- and South-Male-Atoll can be reached within 30 minutes to one hour by boat from Embudu. These include sites such as Canyon, Cathedral and The Wall, the colourful Dragon’s Mouth, and famous Lions Head. Several cave sites and the famous Victory wreck are also close by.

One of the highlights is the legendary Embudu Express, a real action drift dive in the Embudu Channel, just 10 minutes away by speed boat, and renowned for its big stuff.
