Equator Village can be found nestled amongst one of the largest and most interestingly formed atolls in the Maldives, Addu Atoll. With its alluring tropical beauty, it’s not the typical Maldivian resort – it’s an equatorial escape into a land of culture and nature combined.
As the last inhabited atoll for miles and standing on the edge of lush lands looking onto the vast Indian Ocean, travellers will begin their exotic adventure as soon as they arrive on the island. Guests are able to explore the historical past of the area, with nearby Gan Island an intriguing place to start.

Villas & Residences
The accommodation at Equator Village is chic with a European twist. Tree-lined pathways intertwining through charming courtyard gardens lead to 78 spacious bungalows.
Designed with simple European elegance, each bungalow features airy verandas and comfortable outdoor furniture, blending into the midst of beautiful blooms. Standard rooms are modest and relaxed, offering a cosy, tropical shack opening on to the beach or tropical gardens.
Food & Drink
The Blue Lagoon offers buffets of Western, Oriental, Eastern Asian and local cuisine. The restaurant has a light and airy atmosphere as it opens to overlook the surrounding gardens.
Just the right distance from the pool, restaurant and entertainment room, the Veragan Bar which offers a wide selection of drinks is the perfect place for guests to relax and swap stories with fellow travellers.
Serena Spa offers guests a range of Ayurveda therapies, age-old treatments and packages specially designed to completely revive and revitalise the senses. These are all paired with a selection of aromatic oils to sooth the mind and body.
These include a war memorial built by the British on Gan Island, which was an RAF base until 1976 and a building in Maradhoo used as an Armory by the British Forces during the war.
The biggest wreck in the Maldives, The British Loyalty, lies in a seabed inside the atoll. Addu Atoll also boasts exceptionally pristine coral reefs, as this is the only area in the Maldives that wasn’t affected by the 1998 global coral bleaching.
In order to reach the Equator Village resort, travellers must take a 90-minute flight from Male International Airport to Gan International Airport.
It offers a unique experience to interact with locals and getting to know what the Maldivian life is all about. It is a bit further to get to but an excellent choice for someone whos after a beach holiday but with some culture and the option to explore the local islands easily
