Lily Beach

Huvahendhoo Island, South Ari Atoll

One of the first all-inclusive resorts in the Maldives, ‘Lily’ is undeniably still a beauty: confident paradise island charm and laid-back luxury living that others can only try to emulate. The allure of the Platinum Plan really takes things to another level. Lily Beach is the perfect resort for those who like to have their feet in the sand, but champagne firmly in hand!

Generously-proportioned suites and villas with stylish, sleek interiors are scattered over the island and above the clear waters. Some might say that the Lagoon Villas offer the best of both worlds, with direct access to both the beach and lagoon, but the resort also boasts some of the most affordable over-water options in the Maldives. Away from your villa there are the delights of Lily’s restaurants, bars and spa to look forward to, all showcasing the impeccable service you’d expect from such a great lady.


Lily’s home is Huvahendhoo Island in the South Ari Atoll, a short 25-minute seaplane ride from Male airport, offering a classic Maldives arrival with minimum extra travel time.

I’m not sure what we can say that does justice to Lily Beach. The island is gorgeous, the villas amazing and we’ve been treated like royalty. We’re coming back!

Why we love it

Discover what to expect from staying at Lily Beach

The one that has it all

It's difficult to think of anyone that wouldn’t succumb to the attractions of Lily Beach. Couples, honeymooners, families, friends; it really does offer something for everyone. Forget any doubts you might have about going all-inclusive; at Lily Beach they have it down to an art form. As you’d expect, meals and drinks are included, as well as your mini-bar, internet access and two free excursions each. Once per week you can treat yourselves to the Tamarind fine dining restaurant, too: ideal if you happen to be celebrating.

What can you do there?

We’d understand if you never ventured further than villa to ocean to beach and back again, but if you can tear yourself away, this is a perfect location to experience the full glory of the Maldives. At no extra cost, you can snorkel over beautiful coral gardens, take a fishing trip, or mark the end of another day in paradise with a sunset cruise. Alternatively, for an additional cost, head beneath the waves in the Penguin semi-submarine, relax on a HamacLand (a floating platform anchored in a private lagoon) or sample a secluded picnic on uninhabited Sun Lily island.
