We did our PADI Open Water Diver course here, and it was an incredible experience. The dive instructors, particularly Nik and Lu, were very friendly, helpful and great teachers. The dive sites off Cinnamon Dhonveli, where we did the training, were also great for beginners, and teeming with marine life. We saw sharks, turtles, Napolean fish, eels and all sorts of other more common fish on the reef. Overall, highly recommend this dive centre: very professional, extremely friendly and great teachers if you are learning to dive.

So many times I will read glowing reviews where people gush over how nice and helpful the staff was, and how they'd like to give ten stars when the rating scale only goes to five. I'm just about to write that same kind of gushing, glowing review. My friend is athletic, but for him English is a second language. Lou, Nik, and all the people at Meridis Dive explained (and showed) everything simply and perfectly. The practical instruction in the water was great; not just instructive but fun as well. I can't imagine someone having a better experience. No pressure, no worries. Just relaxation and fun... along with vital learning. The dives themselves were great. We saw such an amazing variety of marine life. All the equipment was top notch. So great in fact that I bought the mask I'd used. Some people wonder if it's worth taking time out of their vacation to learn scuba. Meridis Dive made it so pleasurable that the instruction was an integral part of the whole vacation experience. It's not a chore; it makes you feel good. In many ways, it was the BEST PART of the vacation.

We completed our practical open water scuba course in probably the best place in the world to do it in. PADI dive centre R21617 Meridis Dive and Relax centre at Cinnamon Dhonveli resort Maldives. It was very memorable for many reasons but mainly our superb instructor Nik, he is a great instructor, very patient and gave us easy to understand instruction. The quality of the equipment (very well maintained) but most of all the dive sites we visited, the warm water and incredible clarity allowed us to see the most amazing marine life. I can’t wait to go back and dive some more with Nik. I would highly recommend Scuba diving with this centre. 10/10

We are keen divers from the U.K. so brought our own kit along, but hired computers due to flat batteries. Not cheap, but the dive staff and crew are excellent and the equipment and facilities are top class. The safety considerations, briefings and procedures are also excellent. The coral isn’t the best, but there is plenty of life and a few big things to see. Over six dives I’ve lost count of the number of reef sharks, turtles and manta rays I’ve seen. Lots of small stuff too. The diving is far from challenging. With helpful crew, 29c water and vis from 15m to 25m. Maximum depths of 30m (if qualified) and max dive times of 60 minutes ensure that you stay safe. Overall one of the best dive centres I’ve ever used, and I’ve used and worked at a few. I’d highly recommend Meredis Dive and Relax and the Cinnamon Dhonveli resort where they are based.
