We began by finding the most tranquil lagoon in the Maldives with the perfect white sand beaches. Then we built the longest jetty in the Maldives, to ensure our guests the luxury of peaceful seclusion in all of our accommodation.

To be sure that every guest has the very best night’s sleep we then sourced a variety of pillows of different softness and support. Guests can now choose from their own pillow menu how they prefer to sleep.

Just to get you in the optimum tranquil mood for sleep we even offer a bathing ceremony of specially selected aromatherapy oils and candles to relax your body and mind.

Healthy eating with Constance

From super salads to seeds that pack a vitamin punch Constance Halaveli Executive Chef, Glen Cooper, gives his top 6 tips to navigating the salad bar and eating your way to a healthier you.

1.Choose dark greens
Start your salad off right by going for a base of dark leafy greens, such as spinach or romaine leaves. One packed cup will give you more than half of the recommended daily value of vitamin A as well as nearly 100% of your vitamin K. Leafy greens also supply vitamin C, folate and fibre. Lighter greens such as iceberg do not offer nearly the same nutritional value and are mostly made of water.

2. Include colourful veggies
Add one cup of the most colourful, bright fresh vegetables in the salad bar. Raw is best. Aim for carrots, broccoli, beets, ripe tomatoes, and bell peppers – they add more fibre and vitamins compared to pale coloured vegetables like cucumbers or celery. Steer clear of vegetables soaked with mayonnaise or creamy dressings – they add saturated fat and calories to your meal.

3. Choose lean proteins
Chickpeas and kidney beans are one of the best sources of protein on the salad bar. Add one-half cup of beans to your greens for a protein and fibre rich meal. Grilled chicken breast is another option, as is plain tuna (packed in water, not oil). Hard-boiled eggs are an excellent protein option – opt for more white than yolk to cut fat and calories.

4. Mix it up with crunch and zest
Adding walnuts, sesame seeds, or sunflower seeds will give you extra crunch without the added saturated (and possibly trans) fat of croutons and crunchy Asian noodles. Add one heaped tablespoon for a healthy dose of heart-healthy nutrients and fats. For an extra tang, add one tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese. A little Parmesan goes a long way in flavour as compared to other shredded cheeses, such as cheddar or mozzarella.

5. Extra garnishes
Adding fresh fruit to your salad is a healthy sweet option, but only add about one-half cup because the sugar can still add up. Avoid canned fruits that come in thick syrups like mandarin oranges or peaches and opt for grapes, orange slices, chunks of watermelon or other melon, and fresh berries.

6. Dressing your salad
One of the most crucial ingredients of your salad is the dressing. Avoid creamy mayonnaise-based dressings because they are high in fat and calories. Even low-fat or fat-free salad dressings are loaded with sodium, sugar, and saturated fats. The healthiest option is to dress your salad with a mix of extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and pepper, using only enough to lightly coat your greens. Add a little, toss your salad to ensure even distribution, add a little more, if needed.

Wreck diving in the Maldives

Join TGI Dive Instructor, Natalie Skipworth, as she shares the unique adventure and exhilaration of a wreck dive at Constance Halaveli.

Wreck diving at Constance Halaveli, Maldives

Stepping on the dhoni, a traditional Maldivian fishing boat, the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean stretch out before me.

The sky is blue and cloudless and although it’s only a short ride to the dive site, and I’m eager to enter the water, I almost wish the journey wouldn’t end.

Arriving at the wreck

All too soon we arrive and my instructor tells me it’s time to get ready. She jumps in to check the speed and direction of the current, and surfaces with a smile, telling us the visibility is amazing and the fish are keen to see us.

We grin like idiots as we gear up and look each other over, strapping on computers, checking weight belts and air gauges, making sure nothing will ruin this perfect afternoon.

Entering the water

The first breath underwater is like coming home for me. As we swim down and across, following the guide, the wreck looms into view. It should be threatening, sinister even, but this wreck has been put here deliberately, sunk by the dive centre specifically for divers to enjoy.

What you can expect to see

The abundance of life is incredible in such a short stretch, and within the first 10 minutes we’ve spotted white tip reef sharks, stingrays, a napoleon wrasse, and even a turtle or two.

This wreck is slightly deeper than most and the first person reaches their air supply reserve within 30 minutes. The guide signals us to do a safety stop and inflates her surface marker buoy.

Blowing bubble rings through her regulator to pass the time she points out fish of every colour on the teeming reef.

We drift along for 3 minutes, almost blinded by the reds, yellows, oranges, blues and greens of the sealife, and surface together close to the dhoni. One of the many advantages to diving in the Maldives is that the boat follows you.

Handing up our equipment with the help of the instructor, we climb the ladder back onto the boat, tired but happy.
