Lily Beach Resort & Spa enjoys a worldwide reputation for its pristine beaches, lush tropical vegetation and an exotic House Reef just a few meters away from the shore.
Located within the spectacular Ari Atoll, Huvahendhoo Island is in close proximity to some of the most amazing dive sites on the planet. After an extensive renovation, Lily Beach Resort & Spa reopened in 2009 as a luxury, all-inclusive ‘platinum plan’ five-star resort, the first of its kind in the Maldives and a true pioneer of “affordable luxury.” All 119 villas employ natural materials in a fusion of contemporary design and local Maldivian architecture. During the day, guests enjoy all manner of water sports and excursions, as well as a state-of-the-art gym, spa, sports complex, two freshwater pools, snorkeling and diving. Evenings at Lily Beach bring pleasant breezes and fine dinners, live music and variety shows.
