Dubai, UAE 11 October 2023: dnata Travel, the UAE’s longest serving travel provider with outlets across the GCC, is launching an all-inclusive holiday package with exclusive benefits for its travellers this winter, in partnership with Nova Maldives.

The paradisiac island also conducts weekly sustainable activities from flora and fauna workshops to coral gardening.

The island resort is located on a 100% natural private island in South Ari Atoll, a 25-minute scenic seaplane ride from Velana International Airport. It houses 76 spacious over-water and beach villas, three restaurants including overwater Teppanyaki, a spa, and more.
