Lily Beach Resort & Spa


Located on Huvahendhoo Island in the South-Eastern Ari Atoll, Lily Beach Resort offers something for everyone. Just a 25-minute seaplane flight from Male, this award-winning all-inclusive resort provides a great base for a Maldivian adventure.

The 600m long island is split into two halves. One side is home to the spa, water villas and the AQVA pool bar, and is designated to relaxation and tranquillity. On the other side, you find the vibes bar and activity facilities such as tennis courts, gym, kids club and playground. This configuration makes the resort perfect for families, or couples who wish to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Guests stay on an all inclusive basis, so can enjoy all of the dining options on offer at the resort. The main Lily Maa restaurant offers extensive buffets and internationally themed dinners. Also available for a la carte dinners are Tamarind Indian restaurant; Teppanyaki grill bar and Les Turqouise D’Aqua for a memorable fine dining experience. Drinks can be enjoyed at the vibes bar, aqva bar in the quiet side of the island or the spirit bar.

Beach, lagoon and water villas are available. All categories have private lounge areas and are equipped with full modern amenities. Water villas form part of the quiet side of the island, so might be better suited to couples than younger families.

The excellent house reef is easily accessible from the beach and water villas, and home to many baby sharks and turtles. A short dhoni ride also takes guests to the nearby coral garden where they can witness the regeneration of the reef whilst snorkelling. The South Ari Atoll is also well known for a healthy population of whale sharks and manta rays, so diving with these gentle giants is a great option from Lily Beach.
