To fill your days
Carpe Diem Beach Resort & Spa offers a broad spectrum of choices for you to find your balance between serenity and activity. From daily excursions to snorkelling and dive sites, sandbanks and fishing trips, to enjoying the beach and a variety of off-the-water attractions, there is no shortage on ways to fill your days with us.
If you have children, they will think you chose the Maldives for them, while really you chose Carpe Diem for you. Our Sharky and Friends Kid's Club keeps the little ones entertained, while young adults congregrate around the teen zone for more grown up games.
Meanwhile, you can perfect your backhand on our professional standard tennis court, take time for yourself at Quo Spa, train your two left feet to follow a Latino beat with dance classes, or just go with the flow and embrace island life the Carpe Diem way.
Aqua Fun Inflatable Water Park
Splash around on our 85m long floating inflatable Aqua Park. With separate courses for children and adults, unlimited access is included in our full-board stays. Explore a course of trampolines, monkey bars, flippers, slides, hurdles, springboard, rollers, climbing wall and a giant iceberg. Beat the obstacles and challenge family and friends to a total wipe out.
Diving and Snorkelling
On our pristine house reef you can discover 98 types of coral that are home to over 220 species of marine life. Learn to dive, advance your skills with our certified PADI Dive Centre and explore coral reefs on guided dive and snorkel excursions. Learn about coral conservation and visit our coral nursery in the lagoon.
From riding the waves on a Jetski to catching the breeze while windsurfing, kite surfing or on a mono ski, our range of water sports ensure you make the most out of your time in The Maldives. Surround 99% by ocean, if you are not in, on or under the water, you're definitely missing out.
From February 2019 you can take the lead from our resident dance teacher in Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha and Merengue classes. Learn to perfect your moves or train your two left feet. When evening falls, Buena Vista's overwater transparent dance floor is the where you can show off your new foot moves. If your partner isn't impressed, the fish will be!
Our resort owner is a previous Maldivian National Tennis Champion, so of course this means we also have an international standard tennis court at the resort. For any guest who feels they have what it takes to beat a champion, challenge our owner and the winner receives a complimentary night during their stay! Game On!

kayaking & paddle boarding
Our vast lagoon is the perfect playground to paddle around in a kayak or on a board. Improve your balance, strengthen core muscles and give your biceps a work out, all while working on your suntan. Remember to lather yourself in our Aethic ocean-friendly sunblock lotion! 1 hour of paddle boarding and kayaking fun is included with every stay. Go once around the island or to the end of the lagoon and back. The refuel your energy with a bite at Acropora and relax by the pool.
Take a morning or evening jog around the island (1km) or take your favourite ball game and combine it with everyone's favourite place to be in the sun... That’s right, we are talking about beach soccer and volleyball! The sand introduces an element of unpredictability and a fun way to get people mingling on the beach. All you need is a net or two, a ball and people - the games will do the rest.
