The 5 most popular Instagram Spots in the Maldives

While the Maldives itself is the epitome of the perfect holiday destination, each island here is unique and sets different standards in its way. 

InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort is a beautifully designed, picturesque island with inimitable touches that offers our guests the perfect settings for their instagrammable moments. To help make your social media look more flattering with some unique touches, we have listed our favourite moments/locations for you.  

The Iconic Lighthouse of Maldives      

Our Lighthouse, located at the edge of the island stands tall and proud, overlooking the endless blue ocean. The architecture and intricate design of the Lighthouse are always a topic of conversation amongst guests and team members alike. Depicting a Grecian theme and offering divine Mediterranean cuisine, the blue dome commands attention through every angel of the island. Set against the natural backdrop of the Indian Ocean, especially during golden hour, the photos of and with the Lighthouse are always eye-catching and well-received.

Maldives Underwater at its best at InterContinental Maldives 

Apart from the fact that we are located in Raa atoll, a largely untouched area of marine diversity, the island and its surrounding lagoons are famous for spotting Manta Rays, sharks, and other larger marine life. More recently discovered as an aggregation point for juvenile Manta you can join our Manta excursions with our Marine Biologist, or Manta Trust Projects Manager based in-house to dive into the waters and discover more about these gentle giants. Tick the ‘Swim with Manta’s’ off your bucket list, and this time with actual photographic evidence too!

The AVI Spa at InterContinental Maldives 

Not just a place of holistic treatments and relaxing massages but also incredibly photogenic. Walking from the beach to your overwater treatment room, our AVI spa with its iconic pinnacle spa huts just looks picture perfect. You can perfectly capture it from the Lighthouse roof and take a moment to soak in the beautiful 360-degree view from the top of the Maldives.

The Retreat – adults only and so serene 

Besides the prime location in the middle of the beautiful turquoise lagoon, the retreat is not just the perfect adult only enclave but also hosts the apparently most instagrammable infinity pool. This little piece of Maldives paradise truly offers the best of it all, a large infinity pool overlooking the turquoise lagoon, serenity and of course a delectable drinks and light dining menu. Oh, yes here you can also enjoy your afternoon in style with the best view over the lagoon.
