When Conte Max was launched, back in 2004, the Maldives did not offer many boats of such comfort and standards as to represent an alternative to the islands resorts also for those who did not engage in diving activities.
With the launch of Conte Max, the concept of a cruise combining the
rejuvenating wellbeing of the Maldivian sea and scenery with the
wellbeing of an onboard Ayurveda center was born and in terms of
Maldives cruises a totally new trend was set. Thanks to its increasingly refined cuisine, the staff that was
raised with the boat, and customer service class and attention to
detail, Conte Max has become one of the best known and most loved
yacht among those who for years have not been able to do without
regular visits to the Maldives to discover with us what these
islands have to offer, both above and below the sea surface...
Outdoor dining area (aft of the first deck) and indoor area which can be used in case of rain.
Meals are served at the table and the menu include dishes from the Italian-international and Maldivian cuisine, mainly prepared with fresh fish, although our chefs are always ready to satisfy any of our guests specific needs. Once a week a buffet of traditional Maldivian dishes is prepared.
The indoor saloon has a bar offering a wide choice of soft drinks and spirits, a TV-DVD-Stereo area furnished with comfortable sofas . All yacht furniture is made of valuable Maldivian wood. Recharging area for cameras 220v electricity.
The communal open-air spaces are on three decks furnished with sun loungers, sun mats and deck chairs. The decks allow guests to enjoy the breathtaking Maldivian scenery, both when sailing and while relaxing when the yacht is moored in the lagoons for the night.
The on-board boutique offers traditional Maldivian souvenirs, gadgets and Luxury Yacht Maldives T-shirts.
3G Wi-Fi connection is available for a fee.

Conte Max does not just offer the comfort of any other yacht; we have developed a concept of cruise which combines the regenerative wellbeing inspired by such a breathtaking location as the Maldives with a rather unique concept of on-board wellness, represented by a small SPA specialised in Ayurveda treatments. A masseur is always on board.
This ancient therapy, dating back over 6,000 years, will purify you from the toxins which are obstructing your energy channels, while natural oil- and herb-based massages will relax both your mind and your body.
The oils are freshly prepared each day with years-old dedication and experience, using herbs and ingredients from the ancient Ayurveda culture and are then applied to all the body for the Marma Point Massage, the best-known treatment. For about one hour the masseur’s hands caress each part of the body rubbing muscles and joints with light pressure of varying intensity. This healing massage invigorates and regenerates the immune system giving a pleasant sensation of strength and energy combined with a state of inner calm.
Our guests will also be able to enjoy treatments against cellulite, pads and face compresses, and treatments against back and joint aches with 100% natural therapies in the completely unusual environment. According to Ayurveda, beauty treatments for the body are extremely important for the general wellness of the whole organism and are considered to be some sort of external cleansing to be carried out following purification.
For this reason the preparations on board are not limited to massage oils and mixes for beauty treatments, but also include purifying infusions of leaves and natural roots mixed according to the therapeutic requirements of those who wish to take advantage of this chance to get rid of the toxins accumulated through a wrong or unsuitable diet. After a few days of total relaxation time slows down and even psychological tensions becomes a memory which will completely disappear when watching the wonderful sunsets while practicing the Pranayama, the yogic breathing technique which allows one to regain balance of energy and relax the mind.
Special Ayurveda week
Throughout the year we offer thematic Cruises dedicated to wellness where a specialist in Ayurveda, will guide you through the art of simple relaxation with yoga, meditation and individual treatments.
