    Our opinion

    "Lily Beach Resort & Spa in the Maldives is a five star all-inclusive with beach and water villas."

    Hotel description

    Lily Beach Resort and Spa is a luxury five star, all-inclusive resort situated on pristine white-sand beaches amid lush, tropical vegetation in the south-east of Ari Atoll, reached by a scenic seaplane flight. The area boasts some of the most amazing and exclusive dive sites and Lily Beach benefits from its own house-reef between 3 and 10 metres from the shore. Lily Beach Resort consists of the main island housing the beach and lagoon villas and then offshore, reached by walkway are the deluxe water villas and the four superb sunset water suites. All the 119 villas are spacious, with the beach villas, the smallest, being 68 square metres. Lily Beach has been re-designed and upgraded to offer an all-inclusive luxury resort that, visually offers a fusion of contemporary style and elegance with traditional Maldivian aesthetics. Natural materials are used for all the villas and the public areas and the overall affect combines the use of wood, stone and natural fabrics that blend in with the natural vegetation of the island. Daily life at Lily Beach centres around the outdoors, whether it be on land, amongst the lush tropical vegetation of the island or in the water. The water can be enjoyed from the ambience of the swimming pools or from your own accommodation if you have a lagoon or water villa or suite. Open-air dining takes place for all meals in Lily Maa, the main restaurant with sand floors and views of the lagoon. A variety of world cuisine is offered, with generous buffets and open-cooking stations. This is a relaxed but sophisticated dining experience. There is also an over-water A la Carte restaurant, Tamarind which is not part of the Platinum Plan other than one dinner per guest per stay, but you can book it to have an extra specially romantic and distinctive evening. Tamarind specialises in Indian and Chinese fusion cuisine. There is also The Spirit, a vibrant and informal, spot for relaxing with sand floors, day loungers and open from 10 am until the early hours. A fun highlight of what is included with the Platinum Plan here is a visit to an uninhabited island and fishing villages nearby and sunset fishing, once during your stay. Other features of the Platinum Plan include unlimited cocktails, mid afternoon snacks with fresh juices and then evening snacks and canapés by the pool. Lily Beach Resort & Spa is good for couples and families with the Turtles Kids Club available on a complimentary basis for children aged 4 to 12 years. The club has indoor and outdoor play areas and a whole range of activities are on offer including treaure hunts, balloon races and painting competitions. Baby-sitting services are available at Lily Beach at a charge. The area around Huvahendhoo is known for its exceptional dive sites and at Lily Beach the PADI Ocean-Pro dive team have access to more than 50 in South Ari Atoll. Diving and lessons are available for all standards, from beginner to advanced as well as lessons for children aged 8 to 11 years. All in all, Lily Beach Resort & Spa in the Maldives is an all-inclusive with a difference – it offers affordable luxury with so much included in the price!
