The Equator Village is a resort reborn from the British Club of earlier years when the Gan Island in the Addu Atoll was an RAF base. My GPS showed -0.667 degrees North at the door. Thus, the resort is really on the Equator (Zero Degree Latitude) GAN Island is one of the few places with the airport exactly in the... More

I went to Equator Village on the 21st of December 2014 and stayed there until the 30th od December 2014. I was really surprised that not many people came there for diving. First 3 days there was only 2-3 of us plus the guide. On the 4th day the boat was finally full to our sadness but to diving center... More

Just back from two weeks at the Equator Village in Gan. Having not booked the holiday ourselves, we had the benefit of no pre conceptions, concerns or views on what to expect. We found the Hotel clean, comfortable and well maintained, even during heavy downpours!! The food was better than I would have expected, Ali's soups are excellent. Night fishing... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Maldives and most of the critic we have read cannot be confirmed. There will always be complainers. We went there for 3 weeks and have to say it was great value for money. The Hotel itself is made up of rows of bungalows divided into rooms that have a bathroom, a safe and... More

Equator Village is the perfect place to really explore the local way of life in the Maldives. It's setting inside the former RAF base is secluded and very private. The area is full of all varieties of vegetation and mature trees, some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the Maldives (since they were originally planted by the British... More
