    Hi Max, we thoroughly enjoyed our charter on Over Reef. The crew are fantastic, they couldn’t do more for us. Nasru is a great divemaster and host. Although we couldn’t find a whale shark on this occasion we did swim with manta rays & dolphins which was a wonderful experience and something we will never forget. I was impressed with the boat, a really good design which gives very spacious accommodation and lounging area surprisingly more than you’d expect for a 54 ft boat. Thanks again to you and your team, I look forward to doing it again soon. Best wishes, Richard

    Dear Max, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for arranging a wonderful week for us. From our very first contact with you we were impressed with the prompt professionalism of your replies to every one of our questions. Indeed, that pleasing quality of approach was manifest in all our subsequent experience. The Maldives charmed us, and everything about Dhoni Stella 1 was well up to our expectations, and in many ways even surpassed them. Your team were excellent, helpful, discreet, considerate, and always smiling pleasant company. We would be happy to be quoted in reference as happy customers! Hoping that one day we will have the opportunity to use your services again. Best wishes, John and Anne

    Hi Max, back in Madrid. Over Reef's crew was fantastic. Friendly and caring, great food (please tell the chef!) and great service. Great dives as well with Nasru. We enjoyed massively. If any, we would maybe have loved to visit some more bank sands or islands to disembark, but as I said great experience, and for sure something we will recommend to our friends here. Best regards, Adrian

    We have just spent five days on Over Reef with my father James. I just wanted to email you and thank you so much. We have had the most wonderful time, it is the first time for my partner Mark and myself in the Maldives and it really is the most magical place. Your crew are so fantastic, professional, polite and so kind. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious. Swimming with manta rays, a whale shark and dolphins in the warm Indian Ocean just WOW. We will definitely return next year. Emily

    Hello Max, we had an absolutely fabulous time on the Over Reef, you should be proud to work with such and excellent group of people. We absolutely loved all of them. We don’t have anything that we would change about the experience. Next year we would like to book the Over Reef again. Thank you again for putting up with all my uncertainties, I now understand and absolutely love the country of Maldives. Jim

    Dear Max! Everything was perfect and we had a wonderful time aboard Over Reef. We did not expect such a delicious food and extraordinary service. The guys are so nice, it was a pleasure to be with them. Nasru is an excellent host and a very good dive-guide. Snorkelling with captain Adam was also a highlight for us. And last not least - the ship is really comfortable with a lot of well planned details. We think about coming again. Best wishes. Gabriela

    Hi Max, thank you very much for organizing a great experience for us. We had a great time aboard Dhoni Stella 1, wonderful experiences in the water and really enjoyed the itinerary. The crew did a great job to pamper us all the way. We always felt safe under with the captain Niyaz. He really knows his job and competently steered the crew and the boat. Mallah is a super dive master who not only dives with enthusiasm and competence but also is very attentive to the environment and the ocean. The food was great, we would have taken Karthik with us as a chef. We enjoyed the variety of the food very much. Sobuj topped the service. He was very attentive, did a great job of serving the foods, cleaning the rooms and patiently accompanied the dives and snorkeling with the tender. To be frank, we do not have any suggestions on what could have been better. A big thank you to the crew and to you. Again, all the best and the next tie we will come to the Maldives we will certainly book with you. Best regards. Dirk

    Max, It has been one of the best weeks of our lives, I can’t think of anything that can be improved on everything went very smoothly! Over Reef crew are amazing! Spending the extra time and care to ensure my parents were able to snorkel with us. I look forward to meet you team again in the future. Jordan

    Dear Max & Team, I want to express my heartfelt thanks for a truly wonderful and memorable stay abroad your yachts. Despite the unfavorable weather conditions, some of our most cherished memories from the entire trip took place in your team’s care. From the incredibly delicious food prepared by your on-board chef to the tremendous hospitality shown by your crew (especially our dear friend Nasru!), we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Not the mention, we loved getting a taste of both Over Reef and Stella 1 – each unique and special in their own right. Thank you for everything you and your team did to ensure we had the best possible experience. A highlight for us was the special dinner prepared on our final night. That red snapper was truly gourmet and the crew created so many special touches that really made the night shine for us. Please extend our gratitude again to Nasru and the full crew. Our hearts are so full with beautiful memories for our time aboard your yachts. Warmly, Christina

    Stella 2 was just perfect for us, the generous cabins, the wonderful crew. They are a great team, polite, discreet, efficient, fun, and always smiling. Suranga is an excellent chef, amazing what varied tasteful dishes he cooked for us, Imran is a perfect and enthusiastic steward and boatman, Aju knows his dive sites like his pocket and we had varied and exciting dives. Hameed of course inspires much confidence in handling the boat even in difficult waters. We will certainly recommend your company to our friends. All my best, Suzanne

    Stella 1 was awesome. We went diving or snorkeled every day, did a ship wreck dive and a night dive. The dive master, Aju, was great and they took care of everything for us. The food was amazing and so plentiful. Three course meals+ for lunch and dinner every day. They even did dinner on a private beach for us one night, it was beautiful. The whole crew on the boat was fantastic, they took such good care of us. I would say the only thing about the service was that it was a little awkward for us to be “taken care of” as we have never been in a situation like that before. But it was so nice and we had the best time. Luke & Clare

    We are a French-Austrian family with two children 13 and 15 and booked Dhoni Stella 1 for one week. Booking was easily negotiated with Max Molteni via mail and WhatsApp. Due to COVID a valid airplane ticket was enough for making the reservation with a very fair cancellation policy requiring payment only to be affected once we set foot on the Maldives. Pick-up was at our island in the North Male Atoll. From there we went to the Ari, Felidhoo, South Male Atolls and back to the airport. With us on board were Niyaz a very experienced captain, the divemaster and first mate Aju, the chef Karthik and the steward Sobuj. What an amazing team they were! Sometimes the captain himself took us with the tender to see the underwater wonders of the islands, including turtles and manta rays. Aju had to master our diving skills ranging from experienced and intermediate to novice and discover scuba. He did this in an amazing way with nearly 20 dives all together. Breakfast, lunches, and dinner prepared by Karthik were very tasty and we enjoyed very often fresh fish caught by the captain himself. Our cabins were always impeccable and nicely decorated by Sobuj, who made us swim with a whale shark long before the other crowds arrived. It’s a clear 10 out of 10 for this team. We can full heartedly recommend this experience making us discover the Maldives in very different way than just staying on an island. Christian, Géraldine, Nina, Noé.

    Ditch the Cruise Ship on land experience!! If you are looking for a true Maldivian adventure, this is your ticket to PARADISE!!! Amazing authentic cuisine, Maldivian hospitality and a true glimpse into Indian Ocean marine life, an adventure with the Dhoni Stella fleet will not disappoint! Our group was a party of 5 - oldest was 62 and youngest was 11 years old. We spent 8 days on the amazing Stella 2 on an adventure of a life time. Off season had us navigating a schedule off the programmed itinerary due to weather. Our experienced Captain Hameed and crew enhanced our unforgettable experience off the beaten path. Accommodations were very pleasant with great AC for a comfortable night's sleep! Aju, Imran and Karthik catered to our every need. We are frequent world travelers and this experience will go down as one of very BEST! Thanks to Max and crew! You will always be in our memories.
