Marine life

in the Maldives The Pullman Maldives Maamutaa Resort on Gaafu Alifu Atoll has one of the best views in the Indian Ocean. The islands boast lush tropical flora and fauna, but the crystal-clear sea views are the true gems. Choose from stilted villas that look out over the ocean, or one of two new Aqua Villas that have a bedroom submerged under the water for a completely different view of marine life and the Maldives’ endless coral reefs. Dreamy.
