As part of an initiative to acquaint visitors with the breathtaking underwater lives in the Maldives, Best Dives (Pvt) Ltd., is to introduce a semi-submarine as part of the company’s excursion activities at Crossroads.

Crossroads, one of the largest integrated destination in the Maldives, developed by premier property development and investment holding company Singha Estate Public Company Limited, is set to redefine the Maldives’ vacation experience and captivate the international family-leisure markets to the Maldives. Chief Operating Officer of Crossroads, Thiti Thongbenjamas said, “We are very keen on attracting holiday makers from Sri Lanka, those residing in Sri Lanka as well as expatriate Sri Lankans. The proximity between the two countries is definitely an attraction, while there is no doubt that the Maldives is one of the world’s leading up market tourist destinations. Sri Lankans wishing to make the short trip to the Maldives could avail themselves of this exciting new holiday excursion opportunity.”

The project is due to open in Q1 of 2019 and has much to offer nearby visitors coming on day trips, including water excursion activities, international restaurants and cafés, and a very exclusive shopping experience featuring global brands.

The new semi-submarine will provide an introductory experience to visitors who are keen to see the rich underwater lives in the Maldives. Best Dives was appointed by Singha Estate to provide a wide-range of water activities and excursions for the Crossroads project.

“At this point, things are starting to take shape. This submersible submarine is a key addition to the experience that Crossroads is offering. Lots of key aspects are starting to come into play to be ready for next year’s opening. Seeing partners come together to make this happen is a wonderful feeling,” said Thongbenjamas.
