See 🎥 Marine Savers in action while they rescue Coral, a female adult Olive Ridley, from Kuda Huraa's house reef. She was entangled in a mass of fishing nets but luckily escaped major injuries. Despite showing signs of dehydration and a swollen flipper, Coral should recover quickly so we can release her back to the big blue!
Italian-born Sabino Manzulli is a gifted internationally renowned healer. He draws on a diverse range of modalities to achieve transformative, regenerative work, from traditional Hawaiian Huna to structural integration, neuromuscular therapy and advanced bioenergetic. His total Emotional Release heals from a holistic vantage point – harmonising mind, body and spirit, it releases stagnant energy and addresses the causes rather than the symptoms. The resultant effect decreases pain and muscle tension, balances the emotions and ignites the spirit. Sabino will be the Visiting Master at Landaa Giraavaru’s Ayurvedic Retreat until 30 April.

When the ocean is your pool... Feel like experiencing the ultimate over water living? 👉 📸 @ claudejapswe (via IG)
Introducing our newest patient named Lucky. Lucky is an Olive Ridley sea turtle with a deformity on his carapace and left front flipper. He has difficulty swimming and loses his balance in water where he cannot touch the bottom. For now he can practice his swimming in very shallow water. This case is particularly interesting given that Olive Ridley sea turtles do not commonly nest here in the Maldives. He is also our first Olive Ridley hatchling patient.

Sip on sundowners in the extra-long infinity pool parallel to the sea. Indulge in treatments and yoga on your private ocean-side deck. Bring the finest Resort’s dining to the doorstep with under-the-stars dinners in the water-edge living pavilion. Or descend the steps directly into the warm crystal-clear Maldivian waters to swim towards the horizon or for a moonlit midnight dip. This and more is Kuda Huraa's Three Bedroom Water Suite

Sharks have been cruising the oceans for 400 million years. They are top of their marine food chains and help to regulate the populations of species below them. Threatened with extinction due to illegal poaching, hunting or fishing in certain countries, without sharks the entire marine ecosystem would be thrown out of balance.
