Enjoying a worldwide reputation for its white-sand beaches, luxuriant tropical vegetation, and superb lagoon and ocean surroundings, Lily Beach Resort & Spa is one of the Maldives' most popular luxury resorts. After a major renovation in 2009, it re-opened as a 5-star all-inclusive family-friendly resort, with a unique Platinum Plan fulfilling its signature concept of "affordable luxury". Its tranquillity and serenity, combined with exceptional service and outstanding facilities, make Lily Beach an unbeatable place for a peaceful escape, whether for families or couples.
The resort is situated on the long narrow Huvahendhoo Island, in the beautiful untouched South Ari Atoll, and is reached by a 25-minute seaplane flight from Malé to a floating ocean dock, and then 10 minutes by dhoni to the arrival jetty, during which you are treated to frozen fresh fruit skewers. The location means the resort is surrounded by one of the Maldives' most beautiful lagoons, and a stunning house reef just metres from the beach, with a spectacular under-water life. The Ari Atoll is a habitat for a unique range of brilliant corals and exotic fishes, and close by are some of the most amazing dive sites in the world.
Inland, the fresh, contemporary style created by the recent renovation ensures an atmosphere that is sleek and sophisticated, yet casual and relaxed at the same time. All the buildings, including the villas and the public areas, have been built using only natural materials, in a fusion of wood plus different kinds of natural stone with modern design, all blending in harmoniously with the lush natural environment. As the island is long and narrow, it is possible to have the child-friendly areas at one end, and the more adult-oriented facilities at the other, ensuring that there are plenty of quiet and romantic spaces for those who desire them.
This division includes the two pools, which are separated by the whole length of the island. At one end, in a designated "quiet zone", is the infinity pool and in-ground hot tub, with light and dark mosaic tiles and an imitation rock boulder, and views of the surrounding lagoon. At the other end is the family pool, plus a shallow children's pool to one side, close to the Turtles Kids Club.
The main restaurant at Lily Beach is Lily Maa (Maa meaning "flower"), offering exceptionally high-quality buffets focusing on a different region of the world each day of the week, plus a superb selection of premium wines. At the elegant Tamarind, with its vast gold-garlanded chandelier above the cooking station, you can savour a gourmet fusion of the flavours of Asia, while relaxing on the unique over-water dining deck. The other fine dining restaurant, award-winning Les Turquoise d'Aqua, offers a five-course degustation menu along with an exquisite wine selection, in a romantic waterside setting.
To make the most of the fabulous marine life around the island, you can head to the Prodiver Dive Centre, for the chance to explore wrecks, spot reef sharks, turtles, dolphins, eagle rays and shoals of brilliantly-coloured fish, or even possibly swim with a whale shark. A wide choice of excursions includes trips to a local fishing village or a neighbouring inhabited island, or even a day on an uninhabited island with a picnic provided. And don't miss the nightly feeding of sharks and manta rays.
