The Beach House Collection is celebrating Beach House Iruveli’s rich connection to local life in Maldives in a series of striking photographs, capturing daily life, taken Richard Mark Dobson.
In a bid to both support the local people and encourage tourists to experience a real sense of place, the photographs support a number of packages available to guests made to help them discover the artisanal, artistic and culinary traditions present in the nearby islands.
The beautifully bright, bold photographs offer a rare glimpse into a culture anchored by sandy waters and fish-filled seas: boat builders painting their Dhoni’s; women cooking in the buzz of the village kitchen – surrounded by spiced scents, or the echoing laughter of school children playing volleyball in the late afternoon. Each photograph provides a deep narrative of the colourful heritage and traditions of local communities – an insight into of the backbone of true Maldivian culture.
Cultural Excursions available to guests staying at Beach House Iruveli include a historical island tour, a chance to try traditional Maldivian fishing and a local island tour that provides a wonderful insight into every day Maldivian life.
