Our Story

Our Story

Our story began 17 years ago with a chance encounter onboard a yacht in Maldives. Discussions were had, decisions were made, custom designs were created and finally after after a year of construction, in 2002, Maldiviana Diving Safari was launched. 


With an experienced and dedicated team, we have grown to become one of the most successful travel companies in Maldives. These past 15 years also lead us to believe that a newer and bigger sister to Maldiviana Diving Safari was needed. 


After years searching, sea faring, and renovating, we finally launched Ritrella Cruise Hotel in 2017.


Ritrella Cruise Hotel is currently the biggest cruising yacht in Maldives. At 58m in length, 5 decks, 2 bars, 25 cabins and a restaurant and a swimming pool, Ritrella is worthy of being the sister of Maldiviana Diving Safari.
