Cruise in style aboard Dhoni Stella

Why spend your entire holiday in the same resort when you can cruise the Maldives from island to island with your private traditional Maldivian yacht? With us you can explore the archipelago by spending each day in a different location, while comfortably cruising on board of the Dhoni Stella. You can select one of our proposed itineraries, or design your own route by planning it with the help of our Maldives expertise.

Dhoni Stella I & II are Maldivian luxury dhonies, each with just two cabin-suites, catering for 2-6 passengers and available for private charter only. Maldives enthusiasts will experience a really unique holiday, sailing the archipelago with their family or with another couple.

The Maldives is the ideal archipelago for an aquatic safari and Dhoni Stella are the perfect yachts for your private cruise focused on scuba diving or snorkeling. Sharks, mantas, eagle rays, barracudas, colorful soft corals, sea fans and acroporas - the Maldives reefs offer all of this and more. You choose the destinations and activities that suit you.

Unlike the other cruisers available in the archipelago, where passengers share the boat with other tourists and follow a pre-planned program, aboard Dhoni Stella guests are free to design their own cruise.
