    Incredible boat with an outstanding crew. Best of Maldives, Maldives in March

    We cannot say enough about the crew of Scuba Spa Yang. The servers: Miraj, Azad, Nazrul and Star are certainly worth their weight in gold. The dive with the giant mantas was epic not to be outdone by a near run in with a whale shark - UNBELIEVABLE! The accommodations where very comfortable. If you are going for soft corals, colors and macro photography I think you'd have more luck in Palau or Fiji.

    One of us dives and one doesn't but on Scubaspa we each had an equally great holiday. Think of a floating five star boutique hotel with an award winning spa and the best staff you could hope for. Add to it top quality diving that just kept giving with attentive and knowledgeable guides. Throw in some super travelling companions great food and lots of fun and you have a trip aboard the Scubaspa Yang. I must also thank Liveaboard.com for making sure everything worked smoothly and all requests were looked after.

    so many things about this trip were just perfect, and I wish I could do it at least once a year and for at least 2 weeks. The natural setting combined with this exquisite boat and the excellent staff was just amazing. Fellow divers reminded me that there are lots of other beautiful dive spots to discover and great options in terms of liveaboards and resorts, but I can't imagine any will live up to the combination of awesomeness that I experienced on the ScubaSpa Yang.

    Best vacation ever! Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in December

    This is the most well organized and most luxurious live aboard that I have experienced. The boat still looks brand new. Cabins are spacious and comfortable. Meals offer plenty of variety and everything, from local food to Italian was executed perfectly. Bartenders prepare perfect espresso drinks and there is a really good selection of wine and cocktails. Not cheap but reasonable for then Maldives. Service was perfect, and the staff is incredibly friendly and competent. Diving offers a variety of different dive sites,. We saw lots of reef sharks on most dives, some rare pelagic species and did an insane night dive with lots of nurse sharks, sting rays and swimming moray eels. On top of that we also encountered manta rays on several occasions, both while diving and snorkelling. We did not see a whale shark, so that is one of many reasons to return. I had an incredible time on Scubaspa Yang. Highly recommended.

    Fabulous holiday with whale sharks, mantas, sharks and much more. Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in November

    The highlights on our trip were (1) snorkeling and diving with whale sharks, (2) diving with mantas and (3) the night dive with the nurse sharks and sting rays. The only part that I was disappointed with was the morning snorkel with the whale shark, where there were several boats and too many people swimming around the shark. When we started diving down and looked up at the whale shark, it looked as if it was a but unsure about which direction it could move because of all of the people and then decided to start diving down. It felt like it was stressed and its feeding was interrupted. The boat was very comfortable. It had good food, great service and nice massages.

    I think everything was a highlight this trip did not disappoint best ever holiday I think we chose the best boat to be on just fantastic... The only negitive thing I could say is the price of drinks 2 Bloody Mary's cost $46 I think that is outrageous, it just means for them your less likely to spend anything at the bar! But I would certainly recommend Scubaspa Yang and if I am ever lucky enough to go to the Maldives again I would go with them.😊

The night dive to the jetty was the most amazing dive yet for us. To have sting rays, reef shark and fish swimming around you, on and through you in qty was exhilarating. The food that was prepared by the chefs was really diverse and catered for everyone at the highest standard even though it was buffet style. So delicious, so many courses and delicious flavours.

    An Unforgettable week! Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in November

    What an amazing week it was.  Everything about this Boat is top notch.  Extremely attentive and friendly crew that would cater to every need.  The dive team are amazing and extremely responsible and ethical divers that care about the environment.  The dive dhoni,  after my research and observing the other dhonis around us, is probably the best dive dhoni in the Maldives…comfy, fast, spacious with a really nice upper deck area for relaxation on beanbags after the dives.  The food and beverage was top class with different varieties everyday and food station that serve something  different every meal…you never get bored.  There was also a really nice BBQ dinner on a deserted island beautifully decorated with lanterns and candles.  It really felt that I was on a floating 5-star resort.  I didn’t use the spa but from what I saw it was beautifully equipped. If I would criticize anything, and I’m nitpicking here, it would be 2 things.  One is the tiny shower in the Dolphin room which makes it difficult to maneuver in it.  The other would be that the boat doesn’t have a closed indoor living room/Sala with comfy couches similar to many boats I’ve seen.  Most of the couches are outside or part of the open-air restaurant area.  However, in all honesty I didn’t feel for the need for an indoor relaxation area but it’s just a point to consider.  With that said, I would return to Scubaspa in a heartbeat. I would like to thank the crew and Hussam our dive master/guide for giving me one of the best fun filled weeks of my life.  I will definitely be back.

    Best Liveaboard Experience EVER! Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in July

    It was just the perfect trip from beginning to the end. We were met at the airport by a crew member, and was brought to the motherboat by the dive dhoni. Upon arrival on the main boat, the registration process was simple and clear. We were brought to the cabin by the cruise manager, and given a short introduction of the cabin. In the evening of the arrival day, we were all given a full briefing and met the whole crew of the ScubaSpa Yang. There was 18 divers on our trip, but the boat never felt crowded throughout the whole trip. The sea star cabin was modern, clean and very comfortable. It was the entry level cabin, but spacious enough for 2 people. Housekeeping would usually clean the cabin when we are out for the first dive daily. Coming back to a nice clean cabin after the dive was such a nice feeling. Boat's facilities included many sun decks, jacuzzi, gym, spa, bar, restaurant, etc. The dive dhoni was the most perfectly designed dive boat i've ever been on. Nitrox was complimentary for nitrox divers. There was ample space to keep our equipment in a box given to each diver. Hangers were provided to hang our wetsuits between dives. our gear was rinsed every night with fresh water. The Dhoni crew was very helpful, always helping in every way possible. Dive guide was very experienced, and knew the currents and dive sites inside out. Overall, it was a wonderful trip. I would definitely recommend, and would definitely return in the near future.

    very good....but there are several things that can be improved. Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in March

    Overall it was a very good liveaboard trip. This was mine 9th liveaboard trip in the Maldives (where I have been for 18 times !!) and so I am quite an experienced (and demanding...) customer. There are few things however that could be improved. Here below a list of the plus and minus relevant to this experience : Plus : 1) Beautiful, quite new (2014) and very comfortable boat (we had good weather and very calm water throughout the week). 2) Spacious room and very comfortable bed and nice bathroom. (I stayed in the top level room = Manta suite). Good air conditioning system. 3) Cleanliness of the room and of the boat common areas and services in general 4) Friendliness of the personnel (bar and restaurant) and of the dive-guides (Mario and Sam) 5) Nice sun deck with jacuzzi and very good SPA 6) Good food both for quality and for the variation of the menus Minus : 1) Very cold (almost arrogant) and impersonal treatment from the cruise manager (Barty): he showed up for the initial briefing and basically disappeared for the rest of the trip. He never tried to establish a contact with the guests (not only with me but in general with all). He simply seemed not to be interested in establishing a contact with the guests. I hardly exchanged a word with him for the entire week : indeed he asked me which nationality and which city I came from only on my departure day, after I paid the bill, 30 minutes before leaving the boat ...and even that felt like he was doing it as a duty without any real interest ! I had a small accident jumping on the boat from the dhoni on my arrival and hit my leg causing a minor injury. Well, he did not show up in that moment nor later ! For the entire week he never came to see how I was or if I needed any help or assistance ! I was immediately assisted and helped by Mario (Diving Team Manager) and he was extremely helpful in providing what needed to help healing the injury. During the week Mario constantly asked how I was doing and showed to be extremely helpful (and professional..); Barty simply never even asked how I was. 2) No welcome drink nor refreshing face-towels upon arrival or when returning from the dives (these small things can make a big difference) 3) No welcome cocktail party the day of arrival : this is indeed a good way to establish contact among the guests and with the crew. 4) There is indeed need of a ventilation system in the restaurant area : it gets far too hot ! 5) Limited availability of towels : when you take 5-6 showers a day you want to have fresh shower towels. 6) The cocktails and wine for the barbecue dinner should be offered by the management and not paid by the guests ! 7) No port wine for the after-dinner drink --> as written above I am a spoiled demanding customer ;))

    Mesmerizing, humbling diving vacation Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in April

    This was an incredible, truly unforgettable trip for us. The boat is extremely well maintained, you can practically eat from the floor of the machine house. It is huge, thereby granting more than enough space for every passenger. Last but not least it has an abundance of amenities catering for any conceivable wish of yours. Cabins are spacious, beds are comfortable. The only lesser annoyances are the noisy, outdated AC systems in the cabins, and the lack of AC systems in the on-board gym and some of the massage rooms. What truly outshines even 5 star land based high-end resorts is the service. Staff is courteous, friendly, efficient and helpful, and the food is unfathomably good, with an incredibly wide selection of splendid dishes at all meals. Everything is well organised with absolutely no hiccups, individual requests are accommodated with ease. Dive masters are knowledgeable, funny, and laid back. You feel totally safe on the dives without any overbearing attitude from guides. Highlights were so many that they are hard to enumerate. You will encounter large shoals of fishes and lots of large pelagic species, but be prepared for often changing medium to high currents. Scubaspa Yang is highly recommended. We would/will definitely come again.
