This winter, SuperYachtsMonaco and Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi are offering an unparalleled on-board charter experience. Maltese Falcon which includes an indulling spot at the five-star secluded resort.
With this new partnership, all charter guests will be given an idyllic day pass. Waldorf Astoria which includes the entire island of Ithaafushi south of Male Atoll. No other day visitors will be allowed on the private island while you are there, which means you only need to share the facilities with overnight guests.
