Feel inspired again at Angsana Ihuru in the Maldives!

Itís during the cooler months of Autumn when we need to go in search of a little sunshine. Angsana Ihuru is that tropical, sunshine-filled island. Recently renovated, this is a boutique resort with a huge variety of experiences to inspire and excite guests, providing distractions needed once youíve finished that book and thoroughly unwound from the pressures of normal life.

The warm waters of the Indian Ocean surrounding Angsana Ihuru offer the opportunity to engage in plenty of watersports. For divers, thereís the renowned house reef and shipwreck off shore to explore (as well as a huge number of dive sites within a few miles of the resort). For non-diving days thereís catamaran sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and snorkelling. If you donít know how, expert tuition is on hand to show you. Then there are the fun rides like wakeboarding and water skiing. Speed boats are available to take you on private safaris in search of dolphins or whisk you over to where the mantas are. Prepare to be surprised by the array of active and not-so-active experiences available at Angsana Ihuru.

The Marine Laboratory
Angsana Ihuru is home to more than a few outstanding marine biology research initiatives and the Resort has been honoured with several environmental awards since opening.
Give the Marine Lab staff a hand to clean the corals surrounding the island or help give hatchling turtles a head start. Angsana Ihuruís Marine Lab undertakes research to protect green sea and hawksbill turtles from extinction. The Marine Labís Barnacle Project ensures the sustainability of corals within an experimental reef.

Angsana Spa Ihuru
Enjoy the Resortís award-winning, tropical garden spa offering Oriental therapies that focus on spiritual, mental and physical harmony. Angsana Spa Ihuru is perfect for a spot of pampering after a busy day on the water (or on the beach).

The Cuisine
The choice of dining options is wide and varied Ė perhaps a beach BBQ under the stars, grilled lobster in your villa or a private candle-lit dinner on a sandbank surrounded by nothing but crystal clear water. Enjoy the culinary delights of the Resortís international chefs with their creative fusions of Asian, Mediterranean and Maldivian cuisine; buffet, set dinner, indoors or alfresco.
