Sister boat to the slightly larger Stella 2, it has just 2 double/twin cabin suites onboard; the Stella 1 can accommodate up to 4 guests, ensuring a very private experience. Both cabins feature en-suite bathrooms, individual air conditioning, a room to store personal belongings, and a flat-screen TV & DVD. All cabins are easily situated on the main deck, including a dining space to enjoy freshly prepared meals. The top sun deck has sun loungers for guests to relax between their chosen activities. The aft deck hosts the dive platform area where divers can kit up and enter the dive sites.

Dhoni Stella 1 is available for private charter, where guests can select from pre-planned itineraries or choose to design their own. Typical places that can be visited are the famous Ari Atoll, Baa Atoll, Vaavu Atoll, and Huvadhoo Atoll. All of which offer amazing diving and snorkeling opportunities. The marine life in the Maldives is famous for its Whale Sharks, Mantas, and shark sightings.
