Offering exclusive access to the classic Pasta Point surf break, Chaaya Island Dhonveli is the only holiday resort with a programme designed especially for surfers. Surf the region’s most consistent break, is just a minute’s walk from your room.
Other classic breaks – Sultans, Honky’s and Jailbreak – are less than ten minutes away by boat. You can see the waves from Chaaya Dhonveli, so you’ll know when they’re pumping. No matter what the conditions are, you’re in the perfect spot. Boats are available throughout the day, from 6am for those who want a solid session before breakfast. They make morning and afternoon trips to Chickens and Colas (about 45 minutes away) when conditions are favourable.
All boats have radio communication with each other and the island, for the latest information on surf conditions and surfer numbers, and as a safety precaution. Chaaya Island Dhonveli accommodates up to 250 guests, but the number of surfers is limited to just 30. Resort facilities include a spa, open-air restaurants, three bars (one overlooking Pasta Point), swimming pool, billiards, tennis court, badminton, gym, safe beach for children, and a fully certified PADI Diving School. With a perfect white sand beach and plenty to do for non-surfing partners and children, it’s a great place to relax or to holiday with the family.
