I just spent 4 days/ 4 nights on the MD LOABI Catamaran... what a fantastic experience ! Hassan, Kristina and their Team are very open and flexible to organize day after day the route and dives you are looking for. They prepare you nice meals on board... I really appreciate my coffee in the morning, going for the 1st dive, and when coming back, enjoying breakfast 😊 I have seen wonderful diving spots / sites, as Hassan knows the places / diving spots like his pocket since more than 20 years. He shows you and explain you each day something new... I was looking for corals in flower, meaning with some current... and I saw the most beautiful coral life I could expect... thank you! We also met a friendly eagle ray, saw many reef sharks, Napoleon, sting ray, barracuda, and all the colorful fishes you can imagine... and only the few of us, without many other divers around us 👌🏻 The boat is really nice and the top roof ... a wonderful place to rest and enjoy the sunset. I really recommend you to make this trip & dive experience on the MD Loabi, in South Ari Atoll... a unique way of diving and discovering... the Maldives.

I don’t even know where to begin. This was by far the most amazing experience I’ve ever had traveling, and I have traveled all over the world and I have been lucky enough to have some pretty wonderful moments, but this has been by far the most memorable and one that I will cherish forever :) The Maldives has been on my Bucket list since I can remember and when my fiancé and I got engaged , he told me that our honeymoon would be in the Maldives, so immediately started to plan! I was overwhelmed by so many guest houses, luxury resorts and live aboard options in the Maldives, I didn’t know what to do. So I took a leap of faith, and decided this catamaran would be the best choice for the Romantic adventure my husband and I were looking for, and WOW, Hassan and his wonderful crew truly went above and beyond to make it the most amazing experience imaginable. It was the most magical 5 days I could have ever dreamed up. Hassan coordinated every detail with ease and perfection. He received us with the biggest and warmest smile, and I immediately knew we were in good hands. Once he got us safely to the catamaran, his phenomenal executive chef Islam received us with fresh towels and a cold beverage to welcome us And after asking us what our food preferences were, he started to prepare the first of the most amazing fresh and delicious meals we had over the entire trip. Then Ali the captain asked which island shall we start with? After leaving it up to him, he took us safely towards the first beautiful island, one of so many we discovered throughout the trip. He is incredibly skilled, a true sail man, and we felt safe every minute on the yacht and tender under his direction. By the time we got to our room Sabbir the Steward had already placed and organized everything we needed in our room and bathroom, and throughout the trip he was always there for us when we needed with what we needed with a big warm smile. And then the adventure started, Hassan had already organized a beautiful afternoon on a private island, and on the way we enjoyed schools of dolphins greeting us, as if he had Planned that too :) And the days continued with complete bliss. Hassan and his crew created the most dreamlike experience my husband and I could not have even thought was possible. With complete kindness, a genuine desire of making us happy with every single detail, we felt like we were invited into their home and treated like family for the next five days. Hassan told us how lucky we were when we saw not one but two whale sharks, and we knew that WE were the lucky ones finding Hassan, as his decades of diving experience, his passion and drive made it all happen. After seeing whale sharks , manta rays , eagle rays, dolphins , turtles , moray eels, catching all sorts of fish throughout our cruises from island to island, that were then made into the most amazing meals by Islam, our new nickname for Hassan was our private Poseidon of the Maldivian Sea :) Every single moment was special, every single detail was perfection. And it was all natural and effortless, as I felt like they genuinely wanted this to be the most memorable experience of our life, and boy did they succeed, and went above a beyond. I left the yacht in tears as I felt like I was leaving family, and I am already planning our next visit with Hassan and his crew ASAP! It was a truly a blessing to stumble across the path of Hassan, he is an incredibly special person, who’s passion in life is to share the Maldivian paradise above and below the water with everyone and make sure it’s the most special experience possible. This is the best way to experience the Maldives and its beauty, anchoring in different lagoons and seeing so many beautiful places, don’t hesitate and debate, and book a visit with him ASAP, you will never regret it, and will cherish the experience forever. I know we will :))))

We are a group of 2 couples and stayed on the MD Loabi for 5 nights. What an experience! Highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience the Maldives slightly differently. Sunrise swims, excellent snorkelling trips multiple times a day, visits to the local island and a bbq on a deserted island, wow. Hassan and his fabulous staff made our stay so relaxing. Abdullah led our snorkelling trips, always making sure we felt safe and helped us to spot sea life. Hassan has such a nice calm presence and taught us so much about Maldivian life and all the sea creatures. Islam sure knows how to marinate and cook a fish! The freshly caught mahi mahi we had on our beach BBQ was delicious. Sobir always had a huge smile on his face and always went the extra mile to ensure we felt relaxed. We can't wait to come back one day!
