A new way
of stargazing

In the Maldives, the beauty of Nature is not only manifested in the waters of the Indian Ocean. At night, one only has to look up at the sky to be overwhelmed by the beauty of the celestial vault showing itself in all its splendor. As a Group, we have always tried to attach great importance to the world around us, and in recent years, we have been striving to try to understand it in depth and be able to tell you about it. It is for this reason that we have included an Astronomer in our team, with the dual aim of doing research and disseminating the notions in a clear, simple and fun way. Our Astronomy projects make use of the collaborations of professionals and experts in the scientific-technological field, and we can tell you about the Universe and its infinite facets.

The NAKAI Constellation

In Dhivei, the language of the Maldives, the word "Nakaiy" is deeply related to the seasons and their alternation, but it also carries with it the meaning of "Constellation." From this word comes the name of our Group, which, looking down from above, has made the sea its sky and the NAKAI islands its stars. We followed our vision and, joining them together on the back of a whale shark, drew our constellation. We wished to place it in the sky, and to do so we identified a group of stars in Andromeda that would recall its location on the map of the Maldives. Thanks to the collaboration with Vito Technology, the developer of the spectacular astronomy app "Star Walk 2" (approved by ESA), we were able to realize our dream and place our NAKAI Constellation in the sky. As of today, connecting from the Maldives, you can discover it for yourself by opening the Star Walk 2 app and pointing your phone in the direction of Andromeda, right next to the Lizard constellation. Among the stars, you will find the NAKAI Whale shark waiting for you, with the history of the Group and its Resorts.


At Alimatha, with our Astronomy Night, we will show you the magic of the night. Far from the city lights, the Stars and the Milky Way will show themselves in all their splendor and mystery. You will be fascinated by the celestial vault and its unique spectacle that you will admire in absolute silence and contemplation. We believe deeply in Nature and like you we dream when we look at the stars. Therefore, when we discovered that there is still no astro-photographic archive of the Maldivian sky, we thought we would take up the challenge and create one ourselves! For two years already, together with our Astronomer and photographer Stefano Perrone, we have been mapping the sky above our Resorts. We want to show it to anyone who loves to admire the universe and, shot after shot, be amazed as if it were always the first time. NAKAI's astro-photography project will take a few more years to complete, but once it is done, our intention is to make them available to anyone who wants to study, look at, share or simply tell about them.
