Welcome to the NEW Emperor Maldives Laamu, Gan Island, Laamu Atoll

Reveries Diving Village Beach_03.jpg

Emperor Maldives has opened its first Maldives resort dive centre at Reveries Diving Village on Gan, Laamu Atoll. Here you can combine superb channel diving with a unique experience on a locally inhabited island.

Perfectly located on the west coast of the locally inhabited island of Gan in Laamu Atoll, Reveries has full resort facilities and the chance to experience the ‘real Maldives’.

With its own private ‘bikini’ beach in front of the hotel, great channel and drift diving, sharks, mantas and masses of big stuff, this is the way to get in touch with local Maldives living.

Of course, it’s also the ideal way to combine a resort stay with one of Emperor’s liveaboard trips (cruise & stay) in the south of the Maldives.

Diving from Laamu's untouched and remote location rarely disappoints with its rich diversity of life offering something for divers, snorkellers and beach lovers.

Our diving centre is located right on Reveries' beach front with access to a shallow, sandy lagoon suitable for beginner divers and divers wanting to refresh their skills. For the more experienced, there's the magical Maldives adrenalin-charged current diving.

Daily diving boats built in traditional style, known as dhonis, take guests to dive the nearby sites where a myriad of marine life awaits; hard corals, magical macro life and turtles swimming around the inner reef. Then there are the big pelagics, which can be enjoyed by divers with experience; eagle rays, snappers, nurse sharks, grey reef sharks, mantas and more.
